Hudson Valley CSA
2022 shares are now available!
CSA members receive our farm’s freshest Certified Organic vegetables throughout the harvest season, from June through October. We offer weekly and bi-weekly 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 hope to be able to offer farm events again as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay tuned for 2022 event updates.
What's in a share?
Each week we harvest a balance of our organic salad greens, root vegetables, cooking greens, seasonal vegetables, 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 Bi-weekly 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 Bi-weekly Share.
An egg share can be added to either Weekly or Bi-weekly 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 do I receive a share?
The main harvest season runs from June 1st to October 31st. Within that period, members can choose:
Bi-weekly Pick-ups (every other week)
There will be two built-in "Holiday Weeks" when no shares will be delivered, to allow the farmers to catch up on planting and weeding: the week prior to both the July 4th and Labor Day holidays. To see how the holiday weeks line up with the Bi-weekly share schedule, check out our calendar here.
We also offer a lot of flexibility!
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.
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 using our software.

A non-refundable deposit is due on sign-up. The remaining monthly payments will be processed on the first of each month during the season (June–October). A small $0.30 fee is added to each installment payment by the credit card processor.
Weekly vegetable shares: $100 deposit | 5 monthly installments of $116

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 5% for 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!
You can sign up for your share here! We use GrownBy software for our CSA member management. We love GrownBy for two reasons: it allows you to check on your pick-up schedule and to change pick-up locations and dates, and it is software 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 bi/weekly, 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.
We look forward to providing you and your family with our fresh, delicious produce this season!
