With warm weather approaching now is the time to sign up for a CSA share.
Community Supported Agriculture is an, alternative, locally-based way to purchase fresh food. CSA members join and pay the farm at the beginning of the season and receive a weekly share of fresh produce throughout the harvest months. Becoming a member of a CSA is a great way to eat clean, fresh, local food on a budget and to support local agriculture at the same time. To locate a CSA in your county, we’ve compiled a list of Hudson Valley Bounty members offering CSA shares for each area: Columbia, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, Ulster, Westchester.
Also, there are still many local food goods available to you during the winter months. Fishkill Farms Farm Store, Pennings’ Orchard & Farm Market and Blooming Hill Organic Farm are just a few of our Hudson Valley Bounty members who are open year round with a variety of products.
And don’t forget, there are still some winter markets happening in the Hudson Valley. For a list of markets near you please see our January blog post: “Reminder: Local Food is available year round!”.
