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