Greenwood Heights CSA
We offer a wide range of farm fresh products to be picked up in the Greenwood Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Serving our community since 2007!
What's in a vegetable share?
At each pickup, members can expect to receive between 6 and 9 types of certified organic vegetables. It is enough food to make two large vegetarian meals and sides for a week. Members will receive an email the day before pick up to let them know what the weekly variety includes.
An example vegetable share for each season may look like this:
Spring: Arugula, Baby Lettuce Mix, Beets, Cauliflower, Japanese turnips, Kale, Radishes
Summer: Bell Peppers, Carrots, Fennel, Garlic, Potatoes, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes
Fall: Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Collard Greens, Kohlrabi, Leeks, Turnips, Winter Squash
Shares will be pre-packed this season for safety reasons. Due to COVID-19, no swapping or touching of boxes other than your own will be allowed. Rest assured that each box will include the same variety of delicious, fresh produce!
What's in an add-on fruit share?
If you add on a fruit share, there will be two additional fruit items per week. We source the fruit share from a handful of orchards and fruit growers in the Hudson Valley.
Fruit availability varies from season to season. In summer you can expect Peaches, Blueberries, Pears, Nectarines, Raspberries, Cherries, and Plums. In the fall, the share includes many varieties of Apples, Pears, Cider, and more!
A typical fruit item would be a basket of blueberries, or 6 apples, or 5 large peaches, or a basket of baby pears, etc.
While we source organic fruit when we can, there are very few certified organic fruit options in the Hudson Valley. Most of the fruit is grown conventionally, by farmers at who we know and trust.
Who grows it?
Vegetable share: We grow the certified organic vegetables right here at Hearty Roots Farm.
Fruit: We source the fruit share from a handful of orchards and fruit growers in the Hudson Valley, including Mead Orchard and Montgomery Place Orchard.
Eggs: The eggs are from the hens we raise here at Hearty Roots Farm. They live outdoors on pasture, foraging in the grass, which gives their eggs amazing, nutrient-rich orange yolks.
We offer one sized share, intended for a small household that cooks a lot of vegetables, or a medium sized household that cooks regularly.
Members looking for a smaller quantity can join our biweekly pickup option. The vegetables are harvested the day before you receive them, so they will remain very fresh in the fridge until your next pickup!
The CSA distribution takes place from 9:30am to 11am on Saturday mornings at Greenwood Park at 555 7th Avenue, between 19th + 20th Streets in Brooklyn.
The main season runs from mid June through October (22 weeks)
