The Cobble Hill CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is starting again this coming June! There’s no better place to get your fruits and vegetables than through a local CSA, so be sure to sign up by the 15th! Members fund a local farmer’s growing season, (in this case Green Thumb Farm and Wilklow Orchrids), and in return get a share of the harvest each week from June to December. Supporting a CSA helps sustain regional agriculture, and ensures that you get the freshest seasonal produce in your kitchen.
Shares are distributed to members every Tuesday from 4:00pm – 8:00pm at the Christ Church, 326 Clinton at the corner of Clinton and Kane Streets. You can find the sign up form here.

Celebrating 19 Years of Local Food Straight From The Farm
Cobble Hill CSA Now Accepting New Member Applications through May 15th
Brooklyn, NY, May 1, 2015—Cobble Hill CSA has opened registration to new members for the 2015 season, which will run from June 2-December 8. 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, 2015 marks the 19th year of the CSA partnership with Green Thumb Organic Farm. In a CSA (community supported agriculture), 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 at an affordable price and to support local family farms that use sustainable growing practices.
