Dumbo/Vinegar Hill CSA 2015 Registration Open


Get fresh, organic produce and help support a local farmer by becoming a member of the Dumbo/Vinegar Hill CSA for the summer of 2015. The last day to register is Wednesday, April 29.

CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) offers a way for people in our neighborhood to buy vegetables directly from a local farmer. The Dumbo CSA works with Fred Lee of Sang Lee Farms, a family-owned and -operated certified organic farm on the North Fork of Long Island. Last year, more than 140 families in Dumbo and Vinegar Hill signed up for weekly vegetable deliveries.

Here’s how it works:

  • Veggies: Every member receives a weekly selection of fresh, organic vegetables—approximately eight different varieties each week (though it may be more during peak harvest months). The cost is $590 for 25 weeks ($23.60 per week).
  • Optional add-ons: Fruit for $195 and cheese for $195 ($10.83 per week for 18 weeks). New this year, you can also sign up to receive a weekly selection of homemade products from Sang Lee’s certified organic kitchen, from seasonal soups and salads to dressings, pestos, and dips ($375 for 25 weeks). The CSA is also partnering with local vendors to offer bread, olive oil, and almond butter shares to members.
  • Pickups: Wednesday evenings from 5-8 p.m. at the Phoenix House on 50 Jay Street. The season runs from June to November.

This will be the Dumbo CSA’s 8th season partnering with Sang Lee Farms for organic vegetables. Briermere Farm provides the fruit, and the cheese share rotates between a selection of eight New York State dairy farms. Sali Artisans and She Wolf Bakery also provide products to CSA members.

Visit the Dumbo CSA website to learn more about how the CSA works and to sign up—it only takes a few minutes.

Feel free to contact the CSA at core [at] dumbocsa [dot] org with any questions about payment plans or details about the program.
