Strawberry season starts this week, don’t miss one more week of our NY harvest. Our farmers bring the freshest vegetables, herbs, fruit, berries – kale carrots corn herbs & more! strawberries, apples, plums, flowers, cherries – – ALL THE BEST NYS FIELDS HAVE TO OFFER, picked fresh and delivered to our 2 local distribution locales. Mondays never looked more local than swinging by the backyard at THE WOODS or the outdoor dining shed at DOLLYS SWING to get shares harvested that morning by our partner farms. With inflation & commercial pesticides, from cross country commutes to plastic wrapping, joining a CSA is making a conscious decision to support local sustainable food systems, your healthcare, and your wallet. 2022 PRICING HERE

WAHOO! You are joining! Once you decided to join the biggest choice is your share household. We have many types of member groups: individual households, families, roommates, co-workers, neighbors, and strangers we introduced. In concert with this decision is deciding share size – full or half. We split shares in half by assigning a bi-weekly schedule (A or B week – See calendar for exact schedule) Some people like to come every week — that FULL SCHEDULE means you don’t ever miss a thing as each week the delivery can be different. Some people have large households that cook regularly, friends that split that full share (if you don’t have that person, amigo, co-worker or neighbor- to split with we can help match you up with a share partner) or even people that mix n match with a mixture of full and half shares. Many ways to customize your share purchase!
