July 4th was Week 10 of our 31 week season. The first third of our local harvest season is over; BUT ITS NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP! Don’t miss one more week of our NY harvest.
Our Southside CSA IG page has a lot of examples of share size & variety. Vegetable share is 8-11 items from El MimoMex Farm in Goshen. Berry Shares follow the harvest with qts of berries from Greig Farm running through mid-October. NYS Orchard shares 2-3lbs of the best local upstate orchards are producing – cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, pears, apples, apple cider. Our flower share is a beautifully designed no spray bouquet.
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 freshly harvested 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.
WAHOO! You are joining! Once you decided to join the biggest choices are how often you pickup and how many shares you purchase. We have many types of member groups: individual households, families, roommates, co-workers, neighbors, and strangers we introduced. There are many examples of share sizes on our IG. For our Half Shares, 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!
