Joining a CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, is a great way to enjoy local seasonal products and support your favorite farmers at the same time. This season, we are excited to start Little Gem Farm’s first ‘market style’ vegetable and flower CSA in Nyack!

What is a CSA?

Members purchase their “share” of Little Gem Farm in the early spring. In return, they receive weekly harvests of vegetables and flowers in the summer and fall. Purchasing a share earlier in the season provides the farm with economic support when we face the majority of our expenses (seeds, soil, new to us van!). This also allows us to focus on growing the best products during the growing season, and delivering the freshest products to you every week.

What is a ‘market style’ vegetable CSA?

Unlike the boxed model, members choose their items from a market style spread. This means you can choose exactly what type of vegetables and herbs you want to take home each week. Meal prepping with eggplant? Take three! Don't like swiss chard? You will never be stuck with a bunch. The CSA size will dictate the number of items you can take each week.

What kinds of vegetables will I receive?

Little Gem Farm focuses on growing high quality flavor-forward varieties. Each week, there will be some classic options (ex: kale, potatoes, head lettuce) along with more unique varieties (ex: fairytale eggplant, husk cherries, shiso, garlic leeks). There will be lots of herbs, 10+ varieties of tomatoes to try, and an abundance of greens. Some weeks, we will supplement our shares with farm products, seedlings, and produce grown by our neighboring farms at the Chester Agriculture Center.

  • A typical June share might include: Baby bok choy, little gem lettuce, spring onions, green garlic, tuscan kale, hakurei salad turnips, butter radish, patty pan squash, snap peas, cilantro, and dill.
  • A typical August share might include: Sungold tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, romaine lettuce, shishito peppers, Italian eggplant, swiss chard, garlic, lemongrass and basil.
  • A typical October share might include: Butternut squash, broccolini, cauliflower, napa cabbage, carrots, butter lettuce, scallions, edible flowers, sage and rosemary.
What is in a Flower CSA share?

The Flower CSA will include a hand-picked bouquet of farm grown flowers. We are planting over 25 colorful varieties that include Snapdragon, Nigella, Yarrow, Phlox, Zinnias, Gladiolus, Sunflowers, Strawflower, Rudbeckia, Celocia and Dahlias. These bright and beautiful bouquets will bring light and life into your home or office, and can also make a lovely gift.

Our hope is that this CSA encourages healthy eating, inspires fun in the kitchen, and sparks small joys for you each week. It is a great way to support a young farmer and directly connect with the Hudson Valley food system. We are so excited and honored to grow for you!

How do I sign up?

UPDATE: The CSA is currently full for the 2024 season. Please complete our signup form here to be added to our waitlist!

We prefer that payment is made in full prior to the start of CSA with a check or cash. If you would like to pay with a credit card, there will be a 3.5% processing fee.

Please note, there is a level of risk sharing involved with a CSA. When the farm is at its peak, CSA members will receive an abundance - if there is a harsh weather event, shares may be smaller for the following weeks. Please continue to share feedback! If you decide the CSA is not right for you, please let us know and we can offer a refund.

What happens if I can't pick up my share this week?

You are welcome to send someone else to pick up your share in your place. There are no restrictions, and this can be done as many times as you’d like throughout the season.

Are you certified organic?

While not certified, everything is grown using organic growing practices.

Can I visit your farm?

We will be hosting a farm tour and potluck for CSA members! More soon <3
