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.

How Does it work?

Our CSA runs for 20 weeks. The 2020 CSA will run from June 3rd through October 14th. 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).

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.

  • Exclusive first access to new products.

  • A membership card that will entitle you to 25% off at any of our markets.

  • Free optional herb share - up to one bunch per week. Options include various basil varieties, thyme, oregano, rosemary, and mint! Harvest yourself or message us in advance.

  • Check instagram stories each Wednesday to watch your veggies being harvested!

Payment Options

The cost of a share is $600 ($30/week). A $60 deposit is required to reserve your share. The remaining $540 is due by April 1st, 2020.
