Fresh produce grown at Hilltop Hanover Farm
The Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm & Environmental Center will once again offer fresh vegetables to Westchester residents through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Those who love the taste of farm-fresh produce but lack the time to grow it can purchase a CSA share for $630, which buys 20 weeks of produce from June through October.
CSA members will have weekly access to fresh-picked vegetables grown exclusively at Hilltop Hanover Farm in Yorktown Heights. Shares will include generous portions of such summer favorites as tomatoes, cooking staples like onions and carrots, and chefs’ picks like chard, beets, and novelties to experiment with throughout the season. Hilltop Hanover Farm employs organic and sustainable farming methods to ensure that products are healthy, nutritious and responsibly grown. Farm Director Lucille Munz says the Hilltop Hanover CSA was fully subscribed after it was introduced last year. “In addition to weekly vegetable pick-ups, our 2012 program will feature more member events,” she notes. “Participants can become part of our farming community and make stronger connections with the farm staff.”
Hilltop Hanover Farm is a 187-acre Westchester County owned organic crop farm and environmental center that promotes local food systems and food security, supports watershed and environmental stewardship, and preserves the agricultural heritage of Westchester County and the Hudson Valley.
