New York City Farm Share FAQ


Which Farm Shares are available in New York City?

We are so excited to begin sharing the farm's harvest with our friends in the Big Apple this summer! This first year of NYC distribution we are offering our seasonal vegetable and mushroom shares during the Summer and Autumn, with hopes of making additional specialty and seasonal shares available in future years.


    • Early Summer share: 2 lbs. spring cabbage, 1 bunch rainbow chard, 1 head fennel, ½ lb. arugula, 1 bunch spring carrots, 1 bunch fresh chives, 2 plants green garlic, 1 bunch hakurei turnips, 2 lb. summer squash, 1 lb. bac choi, 1 bunch scallions, 1 lb. spring beets, 1 head Boston bibb lettuce, ½ lb. garlic scapes, 1 lb. strawberries.
    • Late Summer share: 2 lbs. heirloom tomatoes, 2 lbs. beefsteak tomatoes, 1 lb. golden Roma tomatoes, 1 pint sungold cherry tomatoes, 1 lb. bell eggplant,1 lb. broccolini, 1 lb. cucumbers, ¼ lb. hot peppers, 1 lb. sweet peppers, 1 lb. fresh onions, 1 head green oakleaf lettuce, 1 head red leaf lettuce, 1 bunch cilantro, ½ lb. green beans, 1 bulb cured garlic.
    • Autumn share: 2 lbs. rainbow carrots, 3 each delicata winter squash, 1 lb. watermelon radishes, ½ lb. purple daikon, 1 bunch Tuscan kale, ½ lb. arugula, 1 lb. leeks, 1 head escarole, 2 lbs. gold potatoes, 1 bunch fresh dill, 1 head red leaf lettuce, 1 lb. yellow onions, 1 head cauliflower, 1 bulb kohlrabi, ½ lb. spinach.

  • Summer and Autumn Mushroom Lover’s Share:
    • Enjoy 1½ lbs of our own shiitake and oyster mushrooms each week — yum!  We've developed year-round grow rooms for our mushroom cultivation here on the farm, controlling temperature, humidity and CO2 exchange to harvest fresh mushrooms almost every day of the year.  Very different from growing vegetables out under the sky!

 

  •  Sweet Corn & Fruit Share
    • Your weekly Corn & Fruit Share will be a half-bushel box (same size box as our regular vegetable shares) and will be approximately half-full of local sweet corn (6 to 10 ears on average, depending on size) topped with a seasonal, simple selection of tree fruits from our favorite local orchards. The fruit selection will showcase New England favorites such as peaches, white peaches, nectarines, pears, and a variety of late summer and early autumn apples (i.e., not so much from the berry department!). We source the corn from our neighbors just down the road at Verrill Farm. Steve and Joan Verrill, who are now in their eighties, run their 200-acre farm with their daughter Jennifer and operate one of the most impressive farm stands in Massachusetts.  They are truly mentors, as well as neighbors. Verrill’s sweet corn has long been known as the best around, and we feel so lucky to be able to share it with you.

 

  • Tomato Lovers Share
    • Slice, sauce, and preserve to your heart’s content with a weekly 12 lb. box of heirlooms, beefsteaks, Romas, and cherry tomatoes.

How will I receive my Farm Share?

We have two options available for receiving your farm share; home delivery or pickup. Click HERE to see a map of our NYC home delivery range and pickup locations. 

  • Home delivery: We will be offering home delivery throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. The delivery fee is the same as our Massachusetts and Rhode Island deliveries; $10 per week per share.  We are so grateful to our delivery partners at What Cheer Fruit and Produce for making this possible for us!
  • Pickup: Our farm shares are currently available for pickup at three host sites in Manhattan and Brooklyn, with additional pickup locations in the works! 

 

I've noticed the NYC farm shares are a bit more expensive than the equivalent shares offered for distribution in MA and RI.  Is that to cover the cost of freight to the Big Apple, or is it more to do with the Red Sox / Yankees rivalry perhaps?

Ha ha, it's the freight!  We've added a flat $5 / week to the price of the farm shares we're distributing to NYC this season, to cover the cost of refrigerated shipping from our farm in Sudbury, MA.  Once again, we are so grateful to the team at What Cheer Fruit and Produce for taking care of this for us and enabling the farm to reach households and kitchens throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn at what we hope feels like a reasonable cost.  Now about those Yankees...!

 

When will I receive my Farm Share?

Our NYC farm shares will be delivered to homes and pickup locations each Monday throughout the summer and autumn. Visit our CSA Pickup / Delivery Info page for more details.  You will be sent an email reminder with pickup/delivery information and scheduling/timing details about two weeks before your CSA season begins.

 

I'm an employer in NYC and am interested in offering your Employer Sponsored Farm Shares to my team.  Is that an option here in Manhattan and Brooklyn?

Yes!  Please call us at 978-261-5365 or email us to learn more about customizing an Employer Sponsored Farm Share plan for your staff.
