What’s included in a CSA share?

A Weekly Share includes a variety of freshly harvested produce to be picked up each Wednesday from June 14th – October 25th. We create our farm planting plan based on feedback from our CSA members: each week we aim to harvest a share that includes salad greens, root vegetables, cooking greens, seasonal veggies, and herbs or a specialty item. A Weekly Share is designed for a small household. Members can expect to receive 5 varieties of vegetables per week; if you add on a fruit share, there will be one additional fruit item per week (see details below). Click here for a preview of our planting plan for 2017, and a slideshow of the share list chalkboard at our on-farm CSA last season.

How are the shares packed?

The vegetables are packed in re-useable cloth bags. Please be sure to return your empty bag from the previous week when you pick up your next share.

Who grows the fruit, veggies and eggs?

The vegetables (which are certified organic) and eggs are produced here at Hearty Roots. The fruit in the fruit share is produced by Mead Orchards, a neighboring farm (except for some melons in the fruit share which are produced at Hearty Roots). Please note that Mead Orchards is not a certified organic orchard.

Do you offer half shares?

The shares at this CSA site are designed for small households, with a smaller number of items (and a lower price) than many CSA shares. If you cook a lot, or have a larger household, we suggest that you reserve two shares.

How much does a share cost?

Weekly Vegetable share (20 weeks): $330 before March 15, then $340
Fruit share add-on: $87.50
Egg share add-on: $118 (1 dozen eggs / week) or $59 (1 dozen eggs every-other-week)

Where & when do I pick up my vegetables?

You pick up your share every Wednesday afternoon/evening (4 – 8:30pm) at Rutgers Church at 236 West 73rd Street, between Broadway and West End.
