The share includes six Saturday distributions of pre-boxed seasonal vegetables and frozen summer vegetables for the months of November, December, January and beginning of February. Please mark your calendars so you don’t forget any of the distribution dates: Saturday Nov. 17th, Dec. 1rd , 15th , Jan 5 & 19, and Feb. 2nd.
Distribution will take place at Hour Children Food Pantry from 11:00pm to 2:00pm on Saturdays. The pantry is located in Long Island City on 11th street between 36th and 37th avenues inside a lot.
The vegetable share will include 6-10 lbs. of storage vegetables and up to 1-3 packages of frozen vegetables, with other fresh vegetables as weather allows. The vegetables will be washed and free of excessive mud and dirt, and pre-boxed for your convenience. Our own vegetables have been frozen by Farm to Table in their freezing facility.
The philosophy behind Community Supported Agriculture is one of shared risk; farmers and consumers share the risk of crop failure as well as the bounty of the harvest. In this sense CSA is not a co-op. Shareholders support the farm and farmer through an “up-front” payment, which allows the farmer to avoid borrowing money, which is often necessary due to expenses without production income. In return for this investment the farmer manages the farm to provide you with a diverse distribution of the highest quality seasonal produce.
