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.”

We deliver to all of Manhattan, parts of Brooklyn, S. Westchester and parts of Fairfield County CT, offering a weekly Spring/Summer share ($649) as well as two options for Winter Shares (delivered every 3 wks for $600 or every 6 weeks for $375). Spring/summer shares contain 100% organic veggies with add on options of eggs, fruit and/or honey. Winter shares are unique – they contain organic veggies great for winter delicacies like soups and stews plus eggs, farm-made items like jam or pickles and some treats from Evans Farmhouse Creamery.

Please join us this season and sign up at myfarmshare.com with a credit card or email us at information@myfarmshare.com for a mail in form. Don’t hesitate to email Gail with any questions.

The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House CSA

The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House CSA is partnering with Paisley Farm for the 2012 Summer Season! Paisley Farm is a 25-acre farm in Tivoli, NY and will be offering Vegetable, Fruit, Egg, Cheese, Wild Forager, and Pasture Raised Pork shares to the community.

Through your participation, Lenox Hill Neighborhood House will be able to provide Vegetable Shares at a very discounted price to our very low-income clients. We will also offer nutrition/cooking workshops to teach members how to cook, store and preserve the delicious vegetables in their CSA shares during distribution hours. Distribution will be on Thursdays from 4-6:30PM at our Center @ Lenox Hill Neighborhood House at 343 East 70th Street (on the Corner of 70th St. and 1st Ave).

If you are interested in joining our CSA and/or are looking for more information, please contact Miles Crettien, Coordinator of Healthy Foods and Wellness, at (212) 744-5022, ext.1213 or mcrettien@lenoxhill.org.

Red Jackets Orchard CSA

“The Red Jacket Orchard Fruit CSA is dedicated to providing New York City residents with high quality fruit that is straight from our orchards in Geneva, New York. 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. This is not an additional product that is added onto your vegetable share! You will receive your week’s worth of fruit and juice, while fostering a relationship with your community and your fruit farmers.”


Sixth Street Community Center CSA

“For 14 years the Sixth Street Community Center CSA has provided its members with the freshest and best tasting produce available from local farms. Since 1996 more than 200 different varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs are provided June to November from our partner farms, Hepworth Farm in Ulster County, New York and Catalpa Ridge Farm in Sussex County, New Jersey.

Beginning in 2002, Sixth Street Community Center CSA has offered its members fruits and vegetables in the winter and spring months from late November to mid-May through Winter Sun Farms and other distributors.

Our CSA also offers wild Alaskan coho, sockeye and king salmon, cod, halibut and rockfish as well as olive oil, wines, honey, vinegars, and other specialty items. And this last season we started a raw milk and cheese club.”


Sweet Deliverance





“We provide a direct link between the production and consumption of wholesome food while celebrating a mutually respectful and beneficial partnership between the farmer and consumer.

We care about what we eat and we truly care about what we make for you and your family to enjoy. We carefully select and prepare organically grown produce for you to serve in the comfort of your own home.

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.”


The Neighborhood School CSA

“The Neighborhood School Community Supported Agriculture, TNS CSA, is a partnership between families living or working in and around the East Village/Lower East Side area and the Angel Family Farm in Goshen, NY. The Angel Family provides members of our CSA with fresh, organically grown vegetables each Tuesday.

The 2010 season will run between June 15th and October 26th with distribution taking place at The Neighborhood School, 121 E. 3rd Street, between 3pm and 6pm. As shareholders, we in turn support our local agriculture while enjoying freshly picked produce every week.”


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.”


Upstate Farms

“Upstate Farms is a grower and distributor of specialty produce based in Tivoli, NY — the heart of the Hudson Valley.
We work only with small family farms to deliver the highest quality vegetables, fruits, cheese, dairy, and meats. When you source from us, you are supporting local farmers, preserving valuable farmland, and promoting regional agriculture. Read more about the products we offer.

Paisley Farm is our 25-acre farm in Tivoli, NY owned and operated by Michael Kokas and Jan Greer. We have been growing organic specialty vegetables for 15 years, and we farm with the help of our two children, Julian and Augusta. We plant with the chef in mind. We love to cook ourselves, and we love to share what we grow. We’ve been keeping the best chefs in Manhattan happy for two decades, and now we can do the same for you, with our CSA!”


Downtown CSA

The Tribeca neighborhood and surrounding communities have an exciting opportunity to join the Downtown CSA in partnership with Katchkie Farm, an organic farm located in Kinderhook, Columbia County, NY.

Full- and half-shares of vegetables are available. Half shares are picked up every other week, whereas full shares are picked up every week.

Members may choose to add on a fruit share from Samascott Orchards in Columbia County (note: orchards are low-spray, but not organic).
