2019 CSA SIGNUPS OPEN!
1. Decide on your size CSA share
SMALL: A small CSA share receives 6-7 vegetables each week. A small share is a good choice if you only cook for 1-3 people or are just getting started with a CSA.
21 weeks, CSA Member Price $420
LARGE: A large share share receives 6-7 types of vegetables but the amounts are double that of the small share. Example: 2 heads of broccoli instead of 1 (small share). A large share is good for families or folks who eat veggies in several meals every day.
21 weeks, CSA Member Price $820
2. Decide on your pickup location The type of share-boxed share or free choice market share- depends on the location you choose to pick up your veggies at.
BOXED PICKUP: Boxed share members receive their veggies, washed and packed in boxes dropped off at a convenient location near where they live. An assortment of complementary vegetables are chosen from what is in season and the newsletter recipes for the week teach you how to use the veggies in your box. This is a good option for folks that like the convenience of a quick pickup or can't make it to the farmer's markets.
On Farm-Essex, NY Tuesdays 4-6

FARMERS MARKET PICKUP: Members who come to the farmer's market choose their share from the selection of produce on the stands that week. This is a good option for folks that enjoy more flexibility in the veggies they receive. Members also get to connect to their farmers at these locations!
