“The GWCSA supports the Garden of Eve Farm of Riverhead, NY, a sustainable, certified-organic farm. Garden of Eve uses earth-friendly methods to farm in an environmentally sustainable way. With every yearly membership, the GWCSA helps stabilize the farm’s yearly operating budget by purchasing in advance a share of the season’s harvest.
We help the farm cover up-front costs of seed and labor when it’s needed most, at the beginning of the season before the crops come in. In return, members benefit in the bounty and the healthy lifestyle related to having a personal connection to a local organic farm. The farm provides, to the best of its ability, a healthy supply of seasonal fresh produce throughout the growing season—otherwise known as the “weekly share.””
“Sister Liqueurs is a new cocktail club in Brooklyn; think CSA but for Liqueurs. All Liqueurs are handmade, using organic herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables. Sister Liqueurs has monthly membership meetings in the form of cocktail parties. Members can bring one guest per party. At the parties samples of different cocktails made with the liqueur of the month are available for enjoyment, along with recipe suggestions.”
“The Long Island City CSA program is a partnership between the residents of Long Island City and the Farm at Miller’s Crossing in Hudson, NY. We are proud to be a mixed income CSA, ensuring access to good food for people of all income levels.”
“Encompassing 200 acres in Dutchess County, NY, Sprout Creek Farm is really three different entities, distinct yet dynamically entertwined. It is a working farm, raising free-ranging cows, sheep, goats, wild turkeys, guinea fowl, chickens, and pigs.
It is a market, selling our internationally award-winning cheeses and farm-produced meats, as well as local Hudson Valley milk, eggs, vegetables, crafts, and gifts. And it is an educational center, offering day, weekend, and summer programs that help connect young people to the land, the seasons, and the plants and animals that co-exist here in harmonious rhythm.”
“The Bay Ridge Food Co-op (BRFC) brings together friends and neighbors with a common vision for the food on their tables. A first step in accomplishing that vision is to provide access to healthy, sustainable produce through community supported agriculture (CSA). So, we are proud to announce the formation of Yellow Hook CSA.
In partnership with BRFC the Yellow Hook CSA will be offering fresh, organically-grown vegetables from The Rogowski Farm located in the fertile “black dirt region” of Pine Island, NY. Sustainably-grown fruit will be available from Stone Ridge Orchards of Hudson Valley, NY. We are also evaluating opportunities for providing egg shares.”
“Owned and operated by its members, the Bay Ridge Food Co-op will seek to provide quality, wholesome food at the lowest practical cost. It will create easy access to locally grown and organic foods, as well as a wider and more interesting range of delicious products than the options currently available in the neighborhood.
At the same time, the Bay Ridge Food Co-op will also provide you significant savings on your weekly shopping bill. As we’ll be run by our members for our members, we’ll be able to pass on all the savings to you – making your money go a whole lot further!
However, the Bay Ridge Food Co-op simply won’t exist without YOU! Food co-ops are owned and operated by their membership, so by … Read the rest

Sweet Deliverance NYC provides its clients with freedom of choice as well as the luxury of catering and delivery. Each meal is as sweet and delicious as if it came from the farmer’s own table.”
