Shareholders receive a weekly delivery of freshly harvested, seasonal vegetables for approximately 22 weeks, starting early June and finishing early November. The weekly share will average 8-9 items with one share generally providing vegetables enough for two adults with two children. Farm newsletters will keep you in touch with farm activities and recipes. We do not offer half shares for those wanting less produce, but two households may buy a share together under one name and split it on their own.
We will deliver the weekly vegetable share to a drop-off site in Glens Falls, Ballston Spa, Saratoga, Healthy Living Market, Albany, Clifton Park (2 pick-up sites), Delmar, Guilderland, Niskayuna, Round Lake, Troy, Basic Foods Health Food Store, and at Denison Farm on Wednesdays from 4:00-8:00 or at the Troy Farmers’ Markets on Saturdays from 9:00-2:00. Any produce not picked up by 8:00 or at the close of market will be donated to local food pantries. For those picking up at the farm, the share cost will be $25 less.
All Shares will be pre-packed into boxes. Please remember that pick-up will be once a week at the site you have chosen.
View “This Week’s Share” in the Current Member toolbar to see this season’s shares. Members will receive a wide variety of vegetables including most or all of the following: Baby Lettuce Mix, Braising Greens, Arugula, Mesclun, Spinach, Kale, Swiss Chard, Lettuce (Redleaf, Greenleaf, Boston, Romaine), Scallions, Red and Yellow Onions, Leeks, Garlic, Sweet Potato, Turnip, Radish, Beets, Carrots, Rutabaga, Celeriac, Potatoes (Red, Fingerling, Yellow, and White Flesh), Cabbage, Broccoli, Bok Choi, Chinese Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, Green and Yellow Beans, Edamame, Peas, Cucumbers, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Winter Squash (Acorn, Buttercup, Butternut, Delicata, Sweet Dumpling), Tomato, Tomatillos, Eggplant, Sweet Peppers, Fennel, Sweet Corn, as well as Herbs, Melons, and Strawberries.
We will be offering an egg share (1 dozen each week for the entire 22 week season). The eggs are from Hidden Camp Farm where the hens are USDA Certified Organic and are kept on pasture where they can eat grass and bugs, take dust baths, and strut!
We will offer to both CSA and non-CSA members a winter and mid-winter vegetable box this year for eight pick-up times; two in November, December, January and February. Each box will contain root crops (potatoes, celeriac, sweet potatoes, carrots, and beets), winter squash, along with leeks, kale, and onions. The winter box in November and December will weigh approximately 35 lbs. and the cost will be approximately $55 per box. The mid-winter vegetable box will be slightly smaller – a 20 lb box for $30.
Any CSA shareholder wishing to volunteer at the farm is very welcome. We also offer a limited number of working shares that give a $40 discount in exchange for a total of 8 hours of work both at the farm and in other capacities such as working at the distribution sites or at the Farmers’ Markets. Please call us in advance of completing your membership agreement form for availability.
