Welcome to the Greenwood Heights CSA

Please note: The 2014 season is sold out.  If you are interested in becoming a shareholder for the 2015 season, please fill out the contact form on our Becoming a Member page.

The Greenwood Heights CSA connects our members in Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn, with farmers in upstate New York who are committed to environmentally-friendly and sustainable growing practices that in many ways exceed organic standards.  Our members receive beautiful, fresh produce at a great price, and in return our farmers are guaranteed customers for the season.

All of the produce is harvested at the peak of freshness, taste, and nutrition.  Our farmers grow dozens of varieties of produce, chosen for their excellent flavor.  Each week members receive a bounty of what’s in season at the moment, for example:

SpringLettuce, beets, radishes, cooking greens, green garlic, peas, scapes, new onions…

Summer - Zucchini, tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, greens, beans, carrots, onions, garlic,
cabbage, fennel, broccoli, melons, peaches, apricots…

Autumn - Winter squash, kale, carrots, turnips, fennel, potatoes, beets, apples, pears…

In addition to fruits and vegetables, our CSA also offers our members shares in farm fresh eggs, bread produced from locally sourced and milled grains, non-homogenized fresh milk and yogurt, and ethically hand-caught wild sockeye salmon.

Kale Chips

The eighth season of our CSA opens for business tomorrow, June 7, 2015!

It’s kale chip time.

Liza, one of our founding members, said that she knew it was time to retire from the core committee when she got tired of telling members how to make kale chips.

And now there’s this:

kalechips

Popping out on mailboxes and storefronts across the neighborhood–cheering me on and mocking me. And, a very personal reminder that our CSA members are starting this season with all different points of view and relationships to food.

Part of the excitement of being in a CSA is getting a chance to learn more about where our food actually, practically comes from and how the choices we make can increase the success of our small farm.

Maybe this season you’ll become a food justice advocate. Maybe you’ll go up to Hearty Roots for the first (or eighth) time. Maybe this will be your year to teach someone else how to make kale chips.

Chip it forward.
