Farm Share

Farm Share’s CSA boxes contain the same variety of fresh, delicious organic veggies and provide the same support to Norwich Meadows Farm in Norwich, NY as their traditional CSA share, but they are boxed and delivered to you right at home to make it easier to participate. We communicate with members through email newsletters, sharing recipes and news from the farm with everyone along with the weekly deliveries. 2013 will be our 7th year collaborating with Norwich Meadows Farm and bringing over 400 members delicious lettuces, beans, beets, carrots, tomatoes, fennel, apples, pears, peaches and more from this local family farm. A list of our weekly boxes from 2012 is available on the website at www.myfarmshare.com by clicking on the link for “This Week’s Box.”

Unlike other fruit CSAs that exist in New York City, members of the Red Jacket Orchard Fruit CSA do not have to be members of a vegetable CSA.

Enlightenment Wines


“Enlightenment wines is probably the smallest legal winery in NY State- a cult “nano” natural winery operating out a family farmstead in the Hudson Valley.

Using a low tech, gravity fed method and a radically different buisness model, Enlightenment wines produces cutting edge and absolutely original unfiltered meads and dry sparkling fruit wines in runs of under 100 cases at a time.

Focusing on direct sales with its very own wine only CSA (Community Supported Alcohol ) Enlightenment Wines is actively attempting to redefine the modern winery as a ultra local person to person experience.”

Hot Bread Kitchen


“Hot Bread Kitchen is more than a bakery. It’s a non-profit 501c3 social enterprise that enhances the future for immigrant women and preserves baking traditions. For your munching pleasure, we offer fresh breads baked with traditional recipes from around the world. We make it a priority to use local and organic ingredients.

Hot Bread Kitchen also honors the culinary traditions of peoples from all over the world. Preservation of diverse techniques and ingredients is crucial in the face of corporate globalization that tends to homogenize diversity. (Did you know, for example, that Maseca, a processed corn flour is now used widely in both tortillas in Central American and West African starches like kenkey? Its too bad, but no one is grinding corn anymore.)”
