Nice place for a picnic.

Norwood Food Co-op CSA


“Welcome to the Norwood Food Co-op CSA Website! We are a Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) program in the Norwood section of the Bronx affiliated with Just Food. Our seventh summer season share will begin this June.

A Community Sponsored Agriculture food co-op connects New York City families with local organic farmers. When you become a member of the Norwood Food Co-op CSA you will receive a share of the weekly harvest of the Norwich Meadows Farm. Through this CSA, affiliated with Just Food, we are re-creating the direct link between the farmer and consumer, giving consumers fresh and more wholesome organic foods.

A CSA is not like shopping at the supermarket. Your weekly share will be comprised of fresh organic vegetables and fruits grown in season and picked just prior to delivery. The quantity and variety of items in the share will vary from week to week, depending on weather and season. You will learn to enjoy a wider variety of seasonal vegetables. The quantity of food varies based on the harvest (there is risk involved), but we usually receive between 5 and 8 different items per week. In an average year, the share prices reflect a savings of about 15-20% off what you would pay in a green market for a comparable amount of local organic produce. The season lasts from mid-June to mid-November (about 21 weeks), and 2010 will be our seventh season!”
