DUMBO / Vinegar Hill CSA

Register now for the early winter CSA season (5 weeks)

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for people to buy vegetables directly from a local farmer. Before the harvest season, members commit and pre-pay to buy fresh, locally-grown, organic vegetables.

Registration is now open for a short, five-week delivery season in November and December. We have only a limited number of spots available, so sign up now to claim your spot.

Vegetable shares from Sang Lee Farms

All members must sign up for a vegetable share ($155 for 5 weeks or $31/week). Vegetables are fresh and organic and provided by Sang Lee Farms on Long Island. Each week, you’ll receive 10-12 different kinds of vegetables—slightly larger than the summer season full share. See last year’s harvest list for a sense of what to expect.

We also offer several optional add-ons:

Apple share: $40 for 5 weeks ($8/week)
3 pounds of mixed apples from Briermere Farms

Cider share: $40 for 5 weeks ($8/week)
1/2 gallon from Briermere Farms

Cheese share: $50 for 5 weeks ($10.71/week)
6-8oz piece of cow, goat or sheep’s milk cheese from various Hudson Valley Farms

Soup share: $65 for 5 weeks ($13/week)
32 oz of frozen vegetable soup, homemade at Sang Lee Farms

Fish from Village Fishmonger

We’ll be offering fresh, local seafood shares to our members this early winter season through Village Fishmonger. Fish and shellfish are sourced directly from local fishermen and shellfish harvesters, then processed and packaged for you in their kitchen in Brooklyn. You’ll be able to sign-up to pick-up fresh, local seafood on a weekly basis on the same days and times that you pick up your vegetable share.

We will be offering a 1 lb or 2 lb size share of mostly finfish, plus add-on shares of clams, oysters, and scallops as well as a la carte items that can be ordered on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.  Low-mercury, allergy-sensitive, and Kosher options are available too.

Stay tuned for more information about signups.

Frozen shares from Winter Sun Farms

Winter Sun Farms delivers farm-fresh, local fruits vegetables frozen at the peak of freshness. The IQF (individually quick frozen) process freezes each kernel of corn, each green bean, which not only maximizes flavor, but allows you to use what you need, and put the rest of the package back in the freezer.

This season, Winter Sun Farms will offer a full (35 item in total) winter share which will be distributed at the Dumbo CSA on November 25, December 9 and December 16.
The price of this share will be $142 in total.

Items include tomato puree, blueberries, sweet corn, green beans, butternut squash puree, edamame, and more. Please visit www.wintersunfarms.com for more information, or sign up now.
