About our CSA
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. As a CSA member, you are essentially becoming a shareholder of our farm for the season. In exchange, you will be provided with vegetables and occasional fruit from our harvest.
What will i get?
Each week you’ll get a portion of the harvest from our rooftop and backyard gardens in Astoria and Long Island City. Our rooftop farm focuses on fruiting crops such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and cucumbers as well as root vegetables like beets, radishes and carrots. Our backyard gardens focus on cooking and salad greens such as kale, swiss chard, lettuce and arugula. Occasional fruit may include grapes and apricots, depending on productivity.
How Does it work?
Our CSA runs for 20 weeks, from June 5th until October 16th. Our weekly pick up is on Wednesdays from 5:00-7:30pm at our home base near 21st street and 30th drive in Astoria (exact address will be provided upon registration). The cost of a share is $500 ($25/week) to be paid upfront, which helps us cover our early season expenses.
Online credit card payment: please note, there is a 5.9% processing fee for online credit card payments. These fees do not go to us, they are transaction fees charged by both Stripe and Squarespace.
Check: payment by check is due within one week of registration. Your spot will not be held for longer than one week without payment.
We also offer subsidized shares to members of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Please contact us for more information.
