Health and Freshness: The vegetable shares are organically grown at Windflower Farm in Valley Falls, NY. and are almost always picked the same day that they are delivered to you. Shares vary depending on what is ripe that week so you are sure to receive the freshest vegetables available.
Affordability: The cost of becoming a member is much less than what you would spend at the grocery store. Meal for meal, membership is less than 10% the cost of fast food! We utilize a sliding scale, based on your income, to determine the exact cost of membership. We also accept food stamps.
Support for Local Farmers: Supporting local farms benefits the entire region by providing local jobs. We operate without a middle man which means that each dollar spent goes directly to Windflower Farm and the people they employ. Joining the West Harlem CSA helps keep New York farming viable!
The Environment: Windflower Farm grows their produce naturally, without the use of chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers. This helps to protect the local water supply and preserve the soil for generations.
Community: In addition to fostering a healthy food community, CSAs provide an opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other better through events and activities. CSAs also propel other community projects and improvements!
