Hudson Valley CSA
Sign-ups are now open for our 2023 main season!
(Brooklyn and Upper West Side sign-ups are also open for 2023.)
CSA members receive our farm’s freshest Certified Organic vegetables throughout the harvest season, from late May through October.
We offer weekly and biweekly shares to meet the needs of households of all different sizes.
We have five pick-up locations in the Hudson Valley:
Clermont, on the farm (Wednesdays, Saturdays)
Red Hook Village (Thursdays)
Eggs are available, too! Members can add eggs to their share, which come from our own Hearty Roots pasture-raised hens.
We also have a pick-your-own garden here on the farm that is available only to our CSA members! When you pick up your share at the farm, you can harvest some extra treats for yourself — herbs, flowers, cherry tomatoes, snap peas, hot peppers, and more.
Our Farm Market is open from Wednesdays through Sundays! If you pick up your share on the farm, we welcome you to stop in and shop our selection of locally grown and produced goods.
One of our favorite things about the CSA model is that it allows us to build a community together! We love to host farm events for our members, and for our broader community. Stay tuned for 2023 event updates.
What's in a share?
Each week we harvest a balance of our organic salad greens, root vegetables, cooking greens, seasonal vegetables (like tomatoes or peppers in the summer, and winter squash in the fall), herbs and more. The list of vegetables that we are planting this year is here.
A Weekly Share is designed for a medium-sized household, with 8-10 varieties of produce per pick-up (a total of 6-20 pounds). A Biweekly Share contains the same amount of produce as the Weekly Share, but pick-ups occur every other week instead of every week. Smaller households often opt for a biweekly share.
An egg share can be added to either weekly or biweekly shares. Our hens live out on the pasture, where they can peck at the plants and mineral-rich soils in addition to eating the grain we provide. This healthy diet means we have the healthiest eggs, with nutrient-rich orange yolks. These are happy, well-cared-for chickens!
How often will I receive a share?
The main harvest season runs from May 31st through October 28th. Within that period, members can choose:
Biweekly Pick-ups (every other week)
There are two biweekly schedules available. "A Week" members start pick-ups in the first week of the season; "B Week" members will start picking up during the second week of the season.
Check the full pick-up schedule before you sign up! Biweekly members will not be able to switch back and forth between A and B weeks during the season.
There will be two built-in holiday weeks when no shares will be delivered: the week prior to both the July 4th and Labor Day holidays.
PLEASE NOTE: The biweekly share schedule adjusts around those holiday weeks. To see a full list of dates for this year's CSA, check out our calendar here. A downloadable .ics file of your schedule, which you can import into your calendar of choice, will be provided in your welcome material.
We can be flexible!
Going on vacation? Put your share on pause for a week or two, and we'll give you a credit toward your next CSA installment payment or share purchase.
Missed your pick-up? We'll hold your share for you at the farm to pick up in the following days. (This option is not available for our Woodstock location.)
Want to pick up at a different location for the week? Just give 3 days' notice and we'll send your share to whichever location works best for you.
Are you traveling this summer and know you won't be around for the full season? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about setting up a custom schedule. (Limited availability)
Locations and Days
You will choose a default pick-up location when you sign up. But it's easy to change your location for a given week during the season in your member account.

Pay in Full
We appreciate your full payment to help the farm cover all the costs of growing the vegetables at the beginning of the season!
Pay in Monthly Installments
A non-refundable deposit is due on sign-up. The remaining cost of the share is then spread out across monthly payments that are processed on the first of each month during the season.
Weekly vegetable shares: $120 deposit
Biweekly vegetable shares: $60 deposit
Weekly egg shares: $25 deposit
Biweekly egg shares: $12.50 deposit
Your monthly payments will vary depending on when you sign up and when you start picking up your shares. Email us at email@example.com if you would like a detailed payment schedule, or if you have any questions.
If you paid in full, you can cancel your share at any time with a week's notice. You can choose to have a credit issued for a future CSA or Farm Market purchase; or receive a refund for the value of the shares remaining in the season less processing fees.
If you pay with installments, you can cancel your payment plan at any time. The installment payments already made are non-refundable, and your cancellation will take effect at the beginning of the next month.
Ready to join? Here's how you sign up!
Sign up for your share in our GrownBy shop! We love GrownBy for two reasons: it allows you to manage your own account, check on your pick-up schedule, and gives you the option to change pick-up locations and dates. Also, the software is designed by a farmer-owned cooperative that was founded by Hearty Roots’ own Lindsey Lusher Shute! It works great as an app from the Apple or Android app stores, or can be used in a web browser.
If you purchased a share from us last year, you should already have an account set up. If you are a new member (welcome!), you will need to create an account as part of your purchase. Once you are logged in, you will be able to make all of your selections (choosing vegetable and/or egg shares, weekly or biweekly, and your primary pick-up location and time) before checkout. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for supporting our farm!
