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.

Eating local can be challenge during the snowy months as the produce available at farmer’s markets gets less numerous by the week.
And then this happens!

Marla + Adam (aka Dramalama) — Our share family size is two, consisting of me and my husband Adam, and we’ve been members of the Southside CSA since 2010. Having just moved from California where the produce is known for being fresh, I was eager to join a local CSA. A long time friend of my husband shared stories about the easy pickups at the Woods, the amazing quality of the fruits and vegetables, and of course the chance to meet other folks interested in healthy farm-fresh cooking. We were sold. The ability to choose from a variety of share packages of different sizes and prices has been very helpful, since our food budget took a hit when we made the transition to New York. This year, we chose the ‘Woods Deluxe’ package, which includes a full vegetable share & berry share and one dozen eggs and orchard share bi-weekly .
