What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA members are key partner in helping us jump start our efforts in growing and distributing food throughout the community. CSA members pay an upfront cost at the beginning of the season and in exchange receive a weekly share of produce throughout the growing season. The SCHF CSA runs 18 weeks from June to October and will be offered at a sliding scale. Each week CSA members will receive about $25-$30 worth of produce grown by SCHF apprentices and incubator farmers.
What's in a share?
Farmers at SCHF come from all over the world and our CSA shares will reflect that. At SCHF we grow the standard American crops as well as crops you won't find all the time at your local grocer. One week you might find tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions, next to bitter melons and daikon radish. If you'd like to swap out an item let us know ahead of time and we'll try our best to accommodate. That being said we encourage you to go beyond your comfort zone and explore the diversity of food. Don't know how to prepare bitter melon and daikon radish? Fear not friends, we'll be providing you guidance in preparing these culinary delights. CSA members will receive recipes that will help you along.
Crops we're growing this season include:
- Eggplants, peppers, kale, collard greens, mustard greens, lettuce, tomatoes, bitter melon, radishes, beets, beans, cabbages, cauliflower, broccoli, cilantro, onions, carrots, radicchio, and so much more!
Cost: In an effort to make nutritious, local food available to as many community members as possible, we're offering sliding-scale payment for all shares. We offer 3 price points for our shares $382 (15% off), $450 (full value), and $517 (15% added donation). Everyone's financial situation is different and we trust you to assess your own situation when choosing a price.
Pick Up Locations: We offer 2 pick up locations.
- At the farm: Wednesdays 3:30pm to 6pm
- CNY Regional Market: Saturdays 7:30am to 12:30pm
When you arrive check in with a member of our team. As a CSA member you will receive a re-usable tote bag. Please remember to bring your tote bag. If you can't pick up your CSA share one week, or someone else will be picking it up, please give us a notice of at least 3 days.
