WE HAVE A NEW FORM FOR PEOPLE LOOKING TO FIND NEW SHARE PARTNERS – http://goo.gl/forms/10ESjBRMK1
Hopefully we can match up anyone in need of a share partner.
You will choose your size: Whole or half shares Right now the sign ups for A week are closed. We are severely lopsided and need to boost up B week. However, if you are looking to do a full veg + alternating half shares of orchard & berry, let us know and we will work something out.

Southside CSA 2015 Harvest season will be on sale SOON. We will be back at the Woods for our 7th season starting in May. Tentatively shares will go on sale Feb 16th. We are touching base with our farmers, making our sign up forms, getting the calendar together, updating the blog, and basically prepping everything to make sign ups easy, breezy, beautiful. Check back here regularly for information or sign up for our email list (Email email@example.com to get added – Returning members are on a list already).
We’ve got a few shares still for sale –
Admin fee depends on the number of monthly payments. Starts at $25 when you pay in full. Sliding sale up to $50 for 4 payments, paid in full by September. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your share today. First come, first served….
We organize the shares offered at Southside CSA into packages. This helps us volunteers keep things organized while meeting our farmer’s sales needs. The earlier you sign up, the more likely you are to get whatever type of package your heart desires. We have crafted a big variety of packages — Full Share Packages & Mixed Full -Half Share Packages & Half Share Packages. We tried to make that list complete BUT if you don’t see the combo that fits your needs, let us know what you would like to purchase. At this point we can pretty much put together any type of combination.
Another great package for the person that likes to eat local fruit, especially berries, but can’t commit to cooking up all those vegetables. The Just Jammin’ Package is a Full Share of the Greig Farm Share which consists of mostly berries. Greig Farm is a pick your own farm in Red Hook. Norm grows asparagus, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, apples, and pumpkins. All are grown without any spraying of any sort of pesticides — not even the natural types approved under the organic moniker. He grows with the ideal that one can walk out into the field, pick the ripest, plumpest berry and pop it right into your mouth without worrying about washing anything off. This share is unlike our other shares in that it follows exactly the ebb and flow of the season, the amount arriving directly related to what is ripe on Monday morning, to the weather, the season, all the factors that can alter a local harvest.
With all these berries, you can top your morning cereal, bake up a slew of pies, and rock out jams that will make your grandma proud. Experiment with pickled asparagus, rock out strawberry chamomile jams & blueberry maple butters, make your friends swoon by bringing raspberry sorbet to those summer bbqs, stock your pantry with blackberry chutney, and master that apple pumpkin pie by the time the holidays roll around. This share is beyond perfect if you want to enjoy some of the local Hudson Valley harvest, be a part of the Southside CSA, improve your culinary skills, and upgrade your health with a weekly dose of nature’s candy.
