How It Works

Our CSA is a unique way to buy local, seasonal produce directly from Fishkill Farms. As a member, you will invest in a “share” of the farm’s production, and reap a weekly supply of the best seasonal produce throughout the year.

SUMMER CSA

Signups for 2022 are closed. Signups for 2023 begin in February (date TBA).

Overview

CSA members make an upfront payment and in return, reap a weekly supply of the best of what’s in season, sharing in the rewards as well as the risks of farming. Each week presents a different selection of fruits and vegetables, and each season certain crops thrive while others are limited. Share items will mostly be from our farm, but some will be sourced from Certified Organic local farms such as MX MorningStar farms to help enrich the share. As a CSA member, the unique variety in your weekly share will allow you to cook creatively with new ingredients, get the first pick of most crops and become an integral part of Fishkill Farms’ community.

Eat Seasonally: Generally, harvests in June will be lighter while those in August and September will be significantly larger. On average, the volume of produce members receive through our CSA is 30% greater than if shopping at our farmer’s markets or store. Through a Fishkill Farms CSA share you will get the opportunity to eat the freshest, highest-quality local food—grown and harvested with the utmost care.

Pick-Your-Own: If you are picking up your share  on the farm, you’ll have the opportunity to harvest a portion of your share from our orchard and production fields. Please keep in mind, for some smaller crops such as blueberries, raspberries and currants, pick-your-own will likely be the only way to receive these items in your share as they are not harvested for you.

A glimpse of what we grow: We plan to give you a variety of organically grown vegetables and berries, as well as a wide assortment of apples, pears, cherries and peaches from our orchard. From sugar-sweet organic strawberries and snap peas in the spring, plump and juicy tomatoes, peaches and nectarines in the summer and finally a myriad of crispy crunchy heirloom apples, hardy winter squash in the fall–you’ll be eating the very best our farm has to offer.

If you cannot make a pickup, you can always have a friend or neighbor come to pick up your share for you. All we ask is that you email us at csa@fishkillfarms.com so we know to expect them. If the weather is dangerous we will move the CSA distribution times and alert members via email.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the freshness of your share if picked up late.
