West Harlem CSA 2013 Extra Share information
We are pleased to offer optional fruit, flower, coffee and egg shares at an additional fee to your regular vegetable shares from our friends at Windflower Farm, Joint Venture Farm, and Red House Roasters!
Fruit Share: Pick up the best of Washington County’s seasonal fruit as a full share, which you pick up every weeks fo 20 weeks, or a half share which you pick up every other week for 10 weeks! Ted, the farmer at Windflower Farm, does not grow his own fruit on site, instead he shops neighboring farms to bring you the highest quality, lowest spray, variety of seasonal fruits available in Washington County. Last year the fruit share included: a quart of strawberries and a small bunch of rhubarb, 2 or 3 pounds of apples or pears, a pound or two of plums, apricots, and nectarines.
If you are interested in ordering a fruit share, you may do so at the same time you purchase your vegetable share (please note: you cannot order a fruit share unless you order a vegetable share). Click here for links to the vegetable/fruit share forms.
Flower Share: Decorate your table with weekly organic blooms from Windflower Farms! A flower share costs $124 for 10 weeks of beautiful organic flower bouquets grown with love and care by Ted’s wife from the gardens of Windflower Farm.
Egg Share: We are offering farm fresh pastured eggs! Enjoy 22 weeks of golden yoked, fresh fresh, eggs from the happy healthy hens at Joint Venture Farm run by Gary and MaryAnn Brownell. The farm has been in the Brownell family for more than three generations (MaryAnn’s Great Uncle was born and raised there) where the couple enjoy raising their daughter Margaret who also helps on the farm. Pick up the tastiest pastured eggs money can buy every week for the entire 22 weeks of the CSA season. A share of 1 dozen eggs for 22-weeks costs $116. While 2 dozen eggs per week is $230 for the season.
Coffee Share: We are pleased to offer our members the opportunity to support small coffee farmers through Red House Roasters coffee share. This Red House Roasters are offering the West Harlem CSA certified organic, fair trade beans bought directly from the farmer and roasted along side the Hudson River in Union City, NJ. Coffee will be delivered 6 times throughout the CSA season. Each month our friends at Red House Roasters will select a different freshly roasted bean to share with the CSA through the regular coffee share. Members can also opt for a dark roast or decaf coffee share. All shares are available in one or two pound increments of whole coffee beans. A full pound share of whole beans is $54.00 a share (which is $9/lb) or two pounds for $102.00 (which is $8.50/lb).
Please note that flowers and eggs arrive weekly (that means each and every week), so if you are receiving a half share of vegetables which you pick up every other week, you will still need to pick up your eggs/flowers on your “off” week. We also recommend finding another West Harlem CSA member to share flowers and eggs with. To ensure that you are on opposite weeks, please partner up with someone that has a last name at the other end of the alphabet! (Alternately, you can email Megan the extra shares coordinator with the name of your partner.)
