Becoming a CSA member means a weekly supply of freshly picked produce straight from our farm! What’s included varies throughout the season based on ripeness and flavor. Periodically, we may include special items such as flowers, hand-made farm gear (tote bags and t-shirts), and our own jarred goods like hot sauce and salsa verde.
***OUR 2013 CSA PROGRAM IS FULLY ENROLLED AND WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS. PLEASE EMAIL US AT INFO [AT] BROOKLYNGRANGFARM.COM TO BE PLACED ON THE WAITLIST FOR 2014.***
SAMPLE CSA SHARES:
New members frequently ask what they can expect to find in their shares. Below are sample shares taken from our 2012 membership records. You’ll notice that in spring, shares tend to trend towards leafier greens like salad mixes, kale and herbs (and therefore tend to be lighter in weight/value), while in midsummer nightshades and cucurbits rule and fall sees more root veggies. Our shares are extremely seasonal to ensure that we’re offering a balanced diet as mother nature intended it! We recommend them for one person who cooks vegetarian meals at home most nights, two people who cook omnivorous meals 3-4 nights a week or to supplement the shopping needs of a larger residence.
