Community Supported Agriculture

 

What exactly IS community supported agriculture?  It’s partnering with your local farmer in return for a diverse array of fresh vegetables, which you pick up right from the farm each week, June through October.  Scroll down to sign up!

2019 CSA Details

How long will the CSA last?

22 Weeks, from June through October.  Our distribution will begin after Memorial Day and run through the end of October.

How do I get my vegetables?

Come to our farm to pick up your weekly CSA share of vegetables.  Pickup hours are:

Friday 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

We are located at:

1500 Larger Cross Rd N, Far Hills, NJ 07931

"HALF" and "FUlL" SHARES AVAILABLE!

Each week you'll take home a good volume of produce according to your share size! Half shares will receive apprx 1 peck (or about 6 items), and Full shares receive apprx 1/2 bushel of produce each week (or about 10 items).  We harvest the veggies that are ripe in the field, and we let YOU choose what you'd like to take home, using our "mix-and-match" system.

our "U-pick" fields

In addition to your weekly share, you'll have the option to pick some of your own vegetables & fruits right from the field.  We will let you know each week what's available (peas, beans, cherry tomatoes, herbs. etc....) and you have the freedom to pick.  IF you're physically unable to participate in our "U-Pick," we'll gladly pick those veggies for you too.

What kinds of vegetables can I expect?

The produce varies by season!  We'll have new crop varieties nearly every week to keep your dinner plates new and fresh.  We will occasionally have items available from other local farms to showcase products grown in our region. Below are some examples of the vegetables you'll see for your CSA distribution.  

Spring: lettuce, spinach, bok choy, radishes, carrots, beets, zucchini, scallions, snow peas, dill, cucumbers, turnips

Summer: heirloom & slicing tomatoes, spaghetti squash, green bell peppers, tomatillos, hot peppers, onion, okra, eggplant, summercrisp lettuce, basil

Fall: potatoes, broccoli, kale, Swiss chard, potatoes, broccoli, rutabaga, butternut squash, sweet potatoes 

In general, we are partnering with other local farms to bring you a sampling of additional items such as: asparagus, berries, melons, onions, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and more. We’ll have a changing variety of weekly retail options from local producers that will be available for purchase each week.

How many people does 1 CSA share feed?

One Half share feeds 1-2 people, and a Full share feeds up to a family of 4…though that truly depends on your veggie consumption, and food storage habits.

Half Shares = $525

This includes your weekly U-pick too!  That's savings and freshness you can't beat at the supermarket.
