The Summer & Fall Share
Registration for the 2013 summer season is now OPEN!! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Part of the value of a CSA, for the farm, is to get startup money before the season starts so that they are better prepared for members and markets. However, this only works when members pay early. Therefore, we have 2 pricing deadlines to encourage early sign-ups.
1st Discount Summer deadline - Friday, January 25, 2013 = $330
2nd Discount Summer deadline - Tuesday, April 9, 2013 = $340
Final Summer deadline (full price) - Friday, April 26, 2013 = $380
Fall deadline - date & price TBD
Our distribution site: We are thrilled to continue our partnership with St. Mark's Church in the Bowery (131 East 10th Street @ 2nd Avenue) for the upcoming summer season.
The Summer Share
This is our basic share of organic produce running for 20-22 weeks (depending on the weather). Summer share weekly pick-ups typically begin in June and end in October or November. Shares consist mostly of vegetables and do not include fruit (with the exception of melons). Produce is grown in Norwich, New York, see Norwich Meadows Farm for more information.
The Fall Share
This share is designed for people who are away for the Summer such as college students, staff and faculty. For Fall shares, pickups typically begin after Labor day and continue through the end of the summer season. Fall shares and Summer shares are exactly the same in terms of frequency, quantity and variety; the only difference is the start date.
Pickup time and location:
Summer and Fall share distribution will be on a weeknight from 4pm-8pm at our distribution site (St. Mark's). We have distributed on Tuesday evenings for the past two seasons, and will be able to confirm whether we'll continue with Tuesday distribution very soon.
Every Summer season has a different start date but pickups usually start mid-June and end the first week of November. Fall shares start in early September. See Pickup Location for more information.
The Summer share is a weekly pickup for a total of 20-22 pickups. Fall shares are weekly for 9-11 weeks. Due to lack of storage, missed pickups cannot be compensated or refunded. You may arrange to sell or share individual pickups through our Google group. You will be invited to the Google group once you become a member.
Enough fresh produce for 1-3 individuals depending on your diet, goals and cooking style. During peak season, a share weighs about 20 lbs and fills approximately 2 regular canvas bags. If you plan to preserve the harvest for Winter, you may prefer 2 shares.
Items in each pickup change weekly and are determined by the farmer according to what is in season. For a sense of our typical crops and length of season for each please see our recorded harvests below.
