Cobble Hill CSA opens registration to new members for the 2014 season, which will run from June 3-December 9. The Cobble Hill CSA is proud to work with vegetable farmer Bill Halsey of Green Thumb Organic Farm, located on Long Island’s South Fork, and fruit farmer Fred Wilklow of Wilklow Orchards in the Hudson Valley.
Launched in 1996, 2014 marks the 19th year of the CSA partnership with Green Thumb Organic Farm. In a CSA, members purchase a share from a farmer in the spring and share in the risk and reward of the farmer’s harvest throughout the season. CSA is a great way for New Yorkers to get the best quality produce and to support local family farms that use sustainable growing practices.
What: New Member Registration Now Open for Cobble Hill CSA. Visit cobblehillcsa.org for more information about joining the CSA and for a link to online registration. See video below about Green Thumb Organic Farm and Farmer Bill Halsey.
When: CSA distributions will happen Tuesdays from 4 to 8pm from June 3rd - December 9th.
