Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a great way to support the farm and get a share of the coming season's harvest. You receive a good value for fresh, local vegetables and in turn, the farm receives income in the winter months when the seed, plant and supply bills are piling up and other farm income is minimal or non-existent.
What is a CSA Share?
Vegetable CSA: One share is at least one half-bushel of Allandale Farm grown produce per week for 20 weeks beginning in mid June. In your box, you will find a full representation of the crops we are harvesting at that point in the season.
When and where do I pick up my CSA Share?
Shares are picked up at the farm on Tuesdays or Wednesdays - your choice - between 2PM-7PM.
Are there other benefits to being a CSA member?
Yes! Our cashiers will have your name on file so that you can receive 10% off all in-store purchases on your weekly pick-up day. You will also receive a weekly CSA newsletter with crop and farm information, recipes and more. Join our email list to receive notification of CSA and other farm news.
What will I receive in my share?
Each week, you'll receive a diverse array of fresh vegetables representative of what we are harvesting from our fields. Your share might include seasonal combinations of...
Arugula, beans, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers, eggplant, fennel, garlic and garlic scapes, greens, herbs, leeks, lettuce, new potatoes, onions, sweet and hot peppers, radishes, scallions, spinach, spring lettuce mix, summer squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, turnips, watermelon, winter squash, and zucchini.
See something you can't stand? This season, we'll have a Swap Box so you can drop it and swap it! Leave behind those veggies you've had enough of, and grab something extra that you absolutely love.
Partnership with Tiny Hearts Farm
The 2018 Flower CSA registration will open in January. Check back soon!
This season at Allandale, we are focused on our commitment to providing the highest quality, and largest diversity of crops. In doing so, we decided to scale back our cut flower program and forgo our own flower CSA. Enter our friends at Tiny Hearts Farm!
We are proud to be hosting Tiny Hearts Farm's Flower CSA. THF grows, arranges, and delivers these beautiful bouquets, and you pick up your share weekly at Allandale Farm.
Tiny Hearts Farm is a small, family-run, organic flower farm, located on 15 acres in Copake, NY. We are excited that we get to share all their hard work with you, and offer a high quality flower CSA option. Check out Tiny Hearts Farm on their beautiful Instagram account, @tinyheartsfarm to see what these guys are all about.
2018 Farm Bucks registration will open in January. Check back soon!
In addition to our CSA program, we have decided to offer this alternative way to purchase vegetables at a discount. Like a CSA, the Farm Bucks program allows you to help support our farm in the early part of the season by paying in advance for Farm Bucks to be used in the store during our long harvest season. Plus, they are worth more than the dollars you spend on them!
