Hastings/Stoneledge Farm CSA Opens Ninth Season: Registration will be open through June 1
Hastings on Hudson Community Supported Agriculture (HoH CSA), which offers 24 weekly shares of organic produce grown on Stoneledge Farm, is now registering members for its ninth season.
Registration will be open through June 1. Pick-ups begin June 6 at Grace Church, located at 78 Main Street, and will continue every Wednesday through November 14. Pick-up times are 10 a.m. to noon and 5 to 6:30 p.m.
“CSA membership is a commitment to supporting regional agriculture, a small family farm and the local community, and to share the bounty of the harvest as well as the risk of production,” says Elisa Zazzera, manager of HoH CSA. “Our members purchase before the harvest and receive a weekly share of USDA-certified organic produce. Each week brings seven to ten different vegetables, from arugula to zucchini. Additional shares of fruit, mushrooms, beans and coffee are also available.”
Stoneledge makes weekly CSA deliveries to five other Westchester locations as well. The farm donates one share for every 10 members a CSA site has. In Hastings, these donations go to Grace Food Partnership, which shares the food with those in need. Each year, Stoneledge Farm donates more than 1,000 pounds of organic produce.
