Get your Greig Farm [mostly] Berry Share quick…

Chock full of early Spring crops, the weekly distribution starts MONDAY MAY 9th!

Fall Raspberries are part of Greig farms' Berry Share. Last week of Aug 2010

Over in the Hudson Valley, snuggled in between the fields of vegetables belonging to the Hearty Roots Farm and the rows of blueberry bushes, there are some “new” fields of asparagus. This is good news for the Southside CSA because it means some new crops have been added to our Berry Share. For Year #2, Norman has added asparagus, 2 varieties of peas (English & Sugar Snap), and strawberries to the “Berry Share” and is starting 7 weeks earlier, practically doubling the share length from 13 weeks to 22 weeks.

Starting in May with asparagus, warming up with strawberries and spring raspberries in the start of June & bursting with blueberries and peas by the July 4th holiday, followed by the late summer harvest of blackberries, and rounding out with the Fall crop of rasperries, peas, and apples, the [mostly] Berry share is perfect for people who want to support a small family farm and get the freshest, most natural produce possible but don’t really cook most nights of the week. 

[Mostly] Berry shares can be purchased on their own

Or as part of our packages which can include vegetable, orchard, and/or egg shares from MimoMex Farm.

We are so excited to partner with a farm that produces some of our Spring faves. As we travel to more places upstate, we continue to come across so many small farms that are producing high quality food less than 100 miles from our kitchens in Brooklyn. A second generation farm located on beautiful sloping hills above the Hudson, Greig Farm is not only home to one of the most gorgeous apple orchards in the state, but lots of seasonal delights like asparagus & pumpkins.

Worried that this is too much food for your household, partner up with a neighbor or co-worker. Lots of our members create their own version of “half shares” with their friends…

Can’t find someone to share with?!? Post on the Southside CSA facebook page and we will try to hook up people to be partners. Don’t dismay that the half shares are all sold out, with a little patience we can probably make something work out!
