Introducing Farmshare Partners

Posted by on 10 Feb 2010 | Tagged as: CSA, Farm News

We are happy to introduce Farmshare Partners, a new program to make local, organically grown food available to everyone. As a Farmshare Partner, you can sponsor part of the cost of membership in the Stranger’s Hill Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project for one family. Members of the CSA receive a share of the produce we grow each season, getting weekly boxes of local, organically grown fruits and vegetables. Additionally, members are invited to take part in social and educational activities out at the farm.

Through the Stranger’s Hill CSA project, we endevour to supply community members with our certified organic produce at an affordable price. However, it is sometimes difficult for families on a tight budget to pay in full for a CSA share. We believe that it is important for everyone to have access to good food that is good for the environment, and we hope that you can help make this possible by becoming a Farmshare Partner! For more information, please visit the Farmshare Partners Page.

Announcing the Stranger’s Hill Organics CSA!

Posted by on 14 Dec 2009 | Tagged as: CSA, Farm News

We are pleased to announce that we will be kicking off a new CSA (community supported agriculture) project in 2010! Some of you might remember that we ran the first CSA in Monroe County during the 1990s. Now we are back, and with an expanded farm operation and many more people involved, the Stranger’s Hill CSA promises to be better than ever!

Members will receive shares of fresh, organic vegetables every week for an extended season of 24 weeks, running from May through October. We will also host many activities out at the farm, including potlucks, you-pick days, and workshops on food preservation. For more information, including a list of planned CSA crops and instructions on how to become a member, visit our CSA page. You can also contact our new CSA manager Alex Smith (csa@strangershillorganics.com) to learn more.
