Find Your Perfect Hudson Valley CSA Program

Community is hard to build during a global pandemic. From masked identities in public spaces to the insular nature of working or learning from home, the past year has made it nearly impossible to establish kinship beyond socially distanced solidarity. Many independent Hudson Valley businesses have suffered due to this abrupt loss of personal connection. However, one industry has actually seen a large rise in popularity due to COVID-19: Community Supported Agriculture. 

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a membership-based agricultural model. In exchange for an upfront payment or series of installments, CSA members regularly receive a “share” of their farm’s bounty — whether it be an assortment of fresh vegetables and/or fruit, herbs, mushrooms, flowers, eggs, dairy, and/or meat — over the course of the growing season. 

CSA is expected to remain an invaluable resource as the pandemic continues into 2021. Most CSA farms offer their share pick-up outside, meaning social distancing is a natural fit and the process is inherently safer than shopping indoors. It’s an affordable way to eat locally and support sustainable farming. While shares often have a high upfront cost, CSAs are typically much cheaper than equivalent items at farmers’ markets and are competitive with prices at the grocery store. Finally, CSAs offer the freshest food around, with farmers often harvesting your produce the very same day you pick it up. 

Grown by kind, hardworking farmers just down the road, CSA shares are an incredible way to invest in your health and in your community alike. Browse farms from the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition’s directory, starting on page 42, to find the perfect farm for you.

Find the right CSA

Not all CSA farms operate the same — there’s often flexibility in terms of cost, pick-up schedule or location, contents, and more. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, ask the farmer. Getting in touch via email or phone will give the farm the opportunity to let you know if they can offer what you seek. Here are a few options to consider when choosing your CSA.

Payment Plans

Some CSAs offer payment plans, sliding-scale or income-based pricing, working shares (in which you volunteer at the farm for a partial or full discount), or even debit plans that allow you to add to your account during the season. If you don’t see an option like this on their website, ask — many farms are willing to arrange a payment plan. An increasing number of Hudson Valley CSA farms accept SNAP/EBT. 

Pick-up Location and Timing 

Choose a CSA that best suits your schedule and location. Many CSA farms offer on-farm pick-up within a set window of time. To accommodate busy work schedules, some farms offer after-hours or honor-system pick-up. There are also farms that have off-farm distribution sites at schools, worksites, community centers, farmer’s markets, or churches. 

Share Contents and Size

Due to COVID-19, most CSAs are offering pre-bagged shares based on what’s in season and available at the farm. That said, some farms still allow members to customize their share using a “free choice” model. Many CSAs offer specialized shares or share add-ons, including eggs, meat, dairy, flowers, herbs, and/or value-added items. 

Pick Your Own

Some farms allow members to pick their own vegetables, fruit, herbs, and/or flowers.

Its network of more than 110 CSA farms, spanning 15 counties, is committed to recruiting first-time CSA members, expanding the local CSA member bases of area farms, and making CSA a familiar and accessible option for everyone in the Hudson Valley.
