Add a touch of Summer Sun to your Winter cooking with our Winter Share. Summer produce frozen at the height of flavor distributed monthly during the Winter…
Eat local this winter with the Southside CSA Winter Share in partnership with Winter Sun Farms, Northwind Farm, and Broken Stove Brewery
Distribution dates: Third Tuesdays – 12/17, 1/21, 2/18, 3/18, 4/15.
Location & Time: 5-8pm @ Cafe Biba – 101 Kent Ave (Corner of N8th – across the street from East River State Park)
Info: The Winter Share is different and similar from our Harvest Season Share. Both are great economical ways to get high quality, fresh, healthy produce; both are 100% local, grown from the fertile Hudson Valley & Upstate farms; both are based on the idea of supporting small farms with upfront capital and supporting the whole damn project with volunteer hours. However, the Winter Share has distributions MONTHLY (not weekly) and consists mostly of produce frozen during the height harvest times–the pea shoots are fresh and the tomatoes come canned!!
In addition to the vegetables, we have egg shares, meat shares, and beer shares.

1 Winter Share* — $142
2 Winter Shares– $284
3 Winter Shares — $426
4 Winter Shares — $568
(FYI – You can order as many winter shares as you want… If we order over 40 shares in total, the price will reduce by $10 to $132. If we get enough orders to trigger the discount, members will be refunded the $$)

2 Dozen Eggs — $57.50
3 Dozen Eggs — $86.25
4 Dozen Eggs — $115
Get a monthly dose of local, sustainable, hand-crafted beer for 6 months — December through May (Please note, beer goes 1 month longer than the rest of the winter shares….)
Membership Fees for 6 months

$200 for the Connoisseur membership plan*
$400 for the Snob membership plan*
Half share – $275 — 6-8 lbs of different meats per month ($55 per distro)

HUZZAH! Those Summer BBQ’s are gonna have a little more local flavor thanks to the Summer extension of the Broken Stove Beer Tasting Club!
Our brewer has announced a 4 month Summer membership. For just $65 you can get in on the local, homebrew magic. Beer doesn’t get more craft or local than this — unless you do it yourself! Spots are limited so act fast and claim your spot today.
Each month, you will receive 3 varieties of beer in your share. James will be brewing up Pale Ales, a Gosse, an English Brown, 3 different Belgians, and Summer Ales. A booklet will be provided to each member to record tasting notes. For the foodies in the house, we will post a write up about each beer flavor so you can play and pair your monthly beers for an amazing culinary experience.
The Club will have a session once per month from June through September. (Technically, July will be a double month with 6 varieties arriving with no beer delivery in August)
Members pick up their beers on the following dates
- Sun June 22
