Summer Shares: Time’s Running Out to Join a CSA Farm

Rural Intelligence Food Section Image

If you want to join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm this summer you don’t have a moment to hesitate: Roxbury Farm in Kinderhook just sold its remaining shares on April 4. In northern Dutchess County, Sisters HIll Farm in Stanfordville is no longer accepting members, and Hearty Roots in Tivoli has a waiting list. Here’s a list of CSAs in our region that as far as we know are still accepting members.  Some of these farms are not certified organic by the USDA even though they use organic farming methods.  But forget labels: these farms allow you to see where your food is grown and get to know the men and women who are feeding you. It’s always better to eat local.

If we’ve left out a CSA farm in our region that is still selling shares, please let us know. And if you have tips for how to get the most of a farm share (like how to cook Swiss chard, kale and the other healthy greens that most CSAs grow), please go to the Comments section at the bottom of this post and share your wisdom.
