Our CSA is available for pick up at the Union Square Greenmarket on Wednesdays, from June 12 to the end of October- a 20 week share. The CSA is a weekly share of certified organic vegetables, with the option to receive free range pastured meats and free range pastured eggs, all from our heritage breed livestock and poultry. Our meats and eggs are offered as a credit system; members can purchase blocks of credits and exchange them for meat and eggs as needed, at about 10% off of our market price.
We seed, raise, and harvest all of our vegetables by hand at our pristine Vermont farm. We carefully wash and pack our vegetables to make sure you receive the freshest produce imaginable! As often as possible, we allow our members to build their own share from the items we have at market; therefore you can choose the vegetables you love most and leave behind that strange vegetable you’ve just never developed an affinity.
Our livestock and poultry all free range on pasture- that means they are not in barns, cages, or on tethers. They are free to run and play, expressing their natural instincts and living full lives. Our animals never receive hormones or antibiotics. One taste and you’ll know the difference.
There is a ton more information on our website: www.tamarackhollowfarm.com. You can sign up using a credit card on our website, or stop by the Greenmarket to ask a question or sign up in person! We look forward to meeting you!
“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.”
“Mead Orchards is our family’s picturesque, 180-acre fruit orchard and vegetable farm, located in the beautiful Mid-Hudson River Valley of New York! We’ve been here since 1916, and now grow nearly 40 varieties of apples, as well as peaches, pears, plums, cherries, strawberries and other berries. We also grow a wide variety of delicious greens, summer vegetables, winter squashes, pumpkins, and decorative gourds.
On Weekends during the harvest season (plus the national Monday holidays of Labor Day and Columbus Day), some of our fruits and berries are available for you to “pick-your-own.” We also bring our produce to several farmers markets throughout the week. We’re located about 100 miles north of Manhattan, 50 miles south of Albany, and just 4 miles east of the Hudson River.”
“At Garden of Eve Farm, we operate as sustainably as possible, and grow an incredible diversity of plants. We have 70 varieties of vegetables, 20 varieties of herbs, and 30 varieties of flowers. We use NO poisonous pesticides or herbicides. Instead we rely on plants’ natural defense systems and ecological solutions to solve pest problems.
As environmental advocates, we try to walk our talk and create the changes we want to see in the world through our choices on a daily basis.
We are different from many typical farms, which are based on the practice of monocropping – growing many acres of just one crop. Single-crop farms often rely on large amounts of chemical pesticides and herbicides, which have been shown to increase the risk of cancer and to cause other chronic health problems. You’ll also notice the difference when you taste organic! Our produce has deliciously intense, sweeter flavors than conventionally grown produce.”
“The Golden Earthworm Organic Farm is a Certified Organic CSA farm located on the beautiful East End of Long Island. We serve over 1500 member families within the local communities of Long Island and Queens with our beautiful quality produce.
The farm is nestled on two parcels of pristine farmland protected by a land preservation program on Long Island’s North Fork. We currently have 80 acres of land in active production.
The farm was started in 1996 by Matthew Kurek, a chef turned farmer with a passion for vegetables and for sustainable agriculture. Today, Matthew runs the farm with his long-time friend and fellow farmer, James Russo, and his wife, green designer Maggie Wood. Together, they grow over one hundred varieties of vegetables for their Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA) and a few farmers’ markets.”
“Stoneledge Farm is a 100 acre, certified organic farm located in South Cairo, Greene County, New York in the foothills of the Northern Catskills. The homestead, greenhouses, berry patch and packing barn are located on 50 acres of mostly wooded land supported by a stone ledge running just below the soil surface. The farm fields and main barns are located on nearby additional 50 acres of prime agricultural land adjacent to the Catskill Creek.
Stoneledge Farm has been involved in Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA since 1996. It was the direct partnership with consumers and the ability to expand our reach to a larger community that made us realize that the CSA concept was for us. After a meeting sponsored by JustFood to connect farmers and community members in NYC, we were off and running with our partner group, Carnegie Hill/ Yorkville CSA.”
“Chubby Bunny Farm is lovingly managed and worked by Dan and Tracy Hayhurst and their young daughter Beatrice. The farm is located in Falls Village, CT, in the northwest corner of the state, in a valley at the base of Canaan Mountain, about 2 and a half hours from NYC.Their 40 acre farm includes pasture, hay fields and about 10 acres of cultivated land for vegetables which they grow using organic & sustainable methods. They have been farming for 10 years, and have been in business for themselves for 5. In addition to growing veggies, they also raise a small flock of sheep and 60 laying hens.
For about 22 or 23 weeks (you can never make guarantees when Mother Nature is involved) from June through November, freshly harvested produce is delivered from the farm to our distribution site in NYC, Church of St Paul & St Andrew, 263 W 86th St at West End Ave. Members collect their food at the site between 5 and 7 PM every Tuesday.”

“Roxbury is a community supported farm, one of the largest in the country, and the first to have a community in New York City. We grow vegetables, herbs, and grass fed animals for over 1000 shareholders representing over 1050 families in four communities–Columbia County, the Capital Region, Westchester County and Manhattan–on 225 acres in Kinderhook, New York.
Roxbury is a biodynamic farm, which means it’s organic. But biodynamic means more than organic. Both are alternatives to toxic chemicals and genetic manipulation, but it isn’t only what we don’t do that makes our farm different from conventional farms; it’s what we do.”
“Sang Lee Farms is a second generation family farm originally growing produce for the Asian markets in New York and along the east coast.
Over the last fifteen years the farm has shifted its focus to retail, farmers’ markets and community supported agriculture. In doing so it has added many new specialty vegetable and herb products, including heirloom tomatoes, multicolored carrots, asparagus, potatoes and garlic.
To compliment all this wonderful produce the farm has developed its own full line of prepared foods. Dressings, dips, pestos, pickled products, jellies, and cooking sauces are now available, and are featured whenever Sang Lee Farms hosts special events and tastings.”
