KATCHKIE FARM SUMMER AND FALL CSA
Katchkie Farm is a year-round NOFA-certified organic Community Supported Agriculture farm in Kinderhook, New York dedicated to building connections between consumers, food professionals & families and healthy, delicious local food. Katchkie prides itself on holistic stewardship of the land and its bounty.
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct link between the farmer and the consumer in order to “invest” in small, local farms. Members sign up for a “share” before the start of the season and pay up front so the farmer has an advance in capital before the very busy growing season. During the harvest season, the farm delivers bundles of produce to give their “investors” a great value on high quality produce. CSA produce is harvested within 24 hours of delivery, so members receive extremely fresh produce. However, because members pay in full before they receive their first share, this is a shared risk endeavor.
What will I get each week?
Shares contain 7 to 10 different organic vegetables per delivery. A sample July share might contain broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, kale, summer onions, scallions, lettuce, zucchini, and parsley. A sample October share might contain beets, garlic, celery root, onions, mustard greens, leeks, butternut squash, peppers, tomatoes, and turnips.
