What Is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is part of a growing movement that joins local communities with farmers in their region. If you want to support local foods, reduce the fossil fuel inputs to the food you eat, and purchase the freshest, most nutrient rich food possible, we hope you’ll join our CSA!
How It Works
By joining the CSA, you’ll pay ahead for a 20-week season (June-October) of fresh, local, organically grown produce. The produce will be delivered to central locations in Utica, New Hartford, and Clinton—or, if you choose our unique Pick-Your-Own option, you’ll be able to harvest your own farm-fresh produce! To see what vegetables we provide, go to Our Produce.
One Full Share is a box of fresh-picked vegetables (generally 6-10 items) that will be delivered to your central location every Friday. Our boxes are roughly proportioned for 2 fully vegetarian family members or a family of 4 omnivores.
One Half Share is a full share delivered every other week.
Your Share will be delivered to your central location every Friday (Full Share) or every other Friday (Half Share).
Full Share: $520
Half Share: $260
Together we’ll decide on the day you will visit the farm. The day before you visit, you will be provided with a list of available produce via email, and you will be mostly free to take your pick of produce from the list provided.
Full Share: $400
Discounts can be negotiated for a commitment to work a set number of hours on the farm.
We expect to be present at the Clinton Farmer’s Market on Thursdays. Drop by and see us!

Sharing the Bounty and the Risks
