Via Hunters Point CSA

March 24, 2016 Staff Report

Registration is now open for the Hunters Point CSA, which will bring produce straight to the neighborhood from Long Island farms.

The CSA, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture, will deliver organic farmed produce to Alewife, located at 5-14 51st Ave., for pickup by members. The CSA’s vegetables come from Golden Earthworm Organic Farm and fruit comes from Briermere Farms, both located on Long Island.

The 26-week season runs between May 23 and Nov. 16., at a cost of $548 for vegetable delivery, or about $21 per week. Members can also choose a fruit “add-on” for $96.

Each weekly vegetable pickup will include six to 10 items, depending on the season and availability, according to the CSA’s website. The fruit add-on runs July to October and will include three to four pounds of fruit per week.

Interested residents can fill out a sign up form online here. The registration deadline is May 1.
