CSA
Community Supported Agriculture

“A fresh way to feed yourself and your family”

By providing cash in advance, members help support our farm so that seeds, fertilizers, labor etc. can be purchased.  In return the member receives a box of produce on a weekly basis throughout the growing season. Members also receive herbs and recipes. Our season consists of 17 weeks of fresh produce beginning in mid June and ending in mid October. This program has really taken off and we do have a waiting list.  To be added to our list please call Pam or send us an e-mail with your inquiry.

What is CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture is a program that allows the community to  receive fresh, healthy produce all season long, while at the same time supporting local agriculture. Our  program will start mid June and finish up mid October.  That's seventeen weeks of delicious farm fresh products! We will offer a variety of  our own vegetables as well as some fruit from local  farmers.


FAQs

Who can join a CSA? Anyone! No family is too big or too small!

Where do I pick up my basket? Bring your empty basket that we happily provide for you, back to Hen-Hawk Acres - 13439 Genesee Rd. Chaffee NY and receive a full basket of fresh produce for the week.

What can I expect each week? You should expect the season to start off lighter than it finishes. First crops are lighter (salad greens, green onions, herbs). End of season is heavier (winter squash, potatoes, tomatoes).

Can I receive vegetables to preserve? If you would like to preserve certain foods like tomatoes, corn, carrots etc., we can substitute part or all of your weekly basket with what you need (upon availability).  We are open to your suggestions.


CSA advantages:

*Eat fresh food with all the flavor and vitamin benefits.

*Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking with recipes every week.

* Receive many herbs.

* Keep one handmade basket at the end of the season

*Kids typically favor food from "their"' farms even   - veggies they've never been known to eat!

Participants will receive a weekly basket of seasonal farm fresh items, including but not limited to:   

Apples, Beans, Beets, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Chinese  Cabbage, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Flowers, Garlic, Gourds,Lettuce, Melons, Onions, Peas, Peppers (hot and sweet), Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radish, Spinach, Squash (summer and winter), Strawberries, Sweet Corn, Swiss Chard, and Tomatoes.


Will I have to shop for produce? Don't expect all of your produce for the week to come from the CSA. Depending on the size of your family and how much you cook, you will probably find that you need to supplement your basket. When do I pick up my basket? On a certain week day decided by you and me, between the hours of 1 PM and 6 PM We ask that you do your best to pick up on your designated day.  We realize that sometimes this is not possible; however we can only hold your basket for two days after your pickup day.  It will then be distributed to other members. You can always have a family member, friend or neighbor pick up your basket if need be. Can I make payments? We prefer that you pay all at once but you can make up to 3 payments if neccessary. Full payment is due by August 1st. PrePaid Price Full Share $420 Half Share $260 Payment Price Full Share $445 Half Share $285


We are not organic but we are considered low spray. We try to grow everything with as little “extra help” as possible.
