Cobble Hill CSA is a Community Supported Agricultural cooperative.
Founded in 1996, it is one of New York’s longest-running CSAs. Our collective is proud to be able to continue to support our New York farming families by providing them a guaranteed local market through the growing season.
Our CSA facilitates member’s purchase of seasonal harvest of vegetable and fruit directly from our local farmers. We collectively manage weekly delivery of goods from our farmers. In doing so, the local farm get a committed community to receive their harvests, and the community gets delicious seasonal organic foods freshly harvested. And beyond that, CSA help maintain the stability of local regional farms which help feed our members on a smaller carbon-foot-print (and in the case of our organic farmer, also a chemical free farming foot-print).
CSA members buy shares of organic produce from Halsey Green Thumb Farm, located on the South Fork of Long Island where the Halsey family has farmed for nearly 300 years.
Green Thumb Farm supplies CSA members with a diverse array of produce—including salad and cooking greens, herbs, tomatoes, and root vegetables. In addition, members have the option to supplemental their veggie shares with decorative flowers, culinary herbs, and bulk tomatoes for home canning.
CSA members may also subscribe for a weekly fruit share supplied by Wilklow Orchards, located in the Hudson Valley. Wilklow Orchards, which uses low-spray cultivation techniques, provides members with a constantly-changing selection of apples, stone fruits, berries, and more. Members have the option to subscribe for supplemental shares of heirloom tomatoes and apple cider from Wilklow Orchards.
In becoming a member, each household participates in the season’s site distribution of shares by helping manage the Tuesday delivery and pickup. On your work days you will need to hang out a bit longer than your regular pickup would take, but these minimal work time slots offer all the opportunity to get to know fellow members and share cooking ideas and info on how you manage your seasonal kitchen menu planning.
