CSA Shares

Our version of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is an arrangement between eaters and farmers whereby the eaters pay up-front for a season's worth of fruits and vegetables. The farmers then deliver weekly “shares” of produce to pick-up sites convenient to you. 

CSA Sign Up Form

Full Share

Each week from June to November you receive a quantity and variety of produce suitable to feed a couple who are enthusiastic cooks, a family with herbivorous children or that could be split between two households. In 2014 we will again include apple cider from Kaneb Orchards, of Massena, NY, in your Autumn shares.

Basic Share

Each week's share, from June to November, is mixed and sized to feed a couple who doesn't eat at home every night or a family with young children. In 2014 we will again include apple cider from Kaneb Orchards of Massena, NY, in your Autumn shares.   A Basic Share costs $375

Hello Good People,

The Flower Share

Beginning in June and ending in September, for 12 consecutive weeks, you will receive a bouquet grown and arranged by us each week.  The varieties in each bouquet change as the season progresses. Early season highlights include; dianthus, lilies, ageratum and delphinium. In mid-season you can expect zinnia, tithonia, larkspur, salvia, scabiosa and cosmos.  Later you'll enjoy rudbekia, asters and sunflowers, among others.

Winter Share

2012 was our inaugural year offering a Winter CSA share. Despite the challenges of handling perishable produce in subzero temperatures and delivering during blizzards, we feel encouraged to continue to offer this service. The Winter Share begins on November 22nd 2014 and ends on March 14th 2015. You will receive a share of produce every other week during this time.
