Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) brings together farmers and people in neighboring communities into a direct, mutually beneficial relationship. The Cobble Hill CSA farms provide sun-ripened, freshly picked, sustainably grown produce to CSA members via weekly delivery to our neighborhood here in Brooklyn. Deliveries run throughout the growing season form June through December. The ability to provide farm goods directly to a reliable and steady community throughout the season, helps secure a portion of the farms income and future operation; and in turn supports our own future food security.
The Cobble Hill CSA, founded in 1996, is one of New York’s longest-running CSAs. We are proud to provide our community with access to fresh, locally-grown produce, while supporting sustainable and ethical farming practices.
CSA members directly purchase a weekly share of organic produce from Green Thumb Farm, located on the South Fork of Long Island. The Halsey family, which has operated this farm for nearly 300 years, grows organic crops while paying farmhands a living wage.
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 subscribe for supplemental shares of decorative flowers, culinary herbs, and bulk tomatoes (for paste), as well as a Pantry Share that offers additional quantities of certain vegetables.
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. In addition, members have the option to subscribe for supplemental shares of heirloom tomatoes and apple cider.
