what makes the pound ridge organics spring c.s.a. so special?
we offer an authentic seasonal *geo-local C.S.A., containing organic produce from our farm, and other farms in our immediate area (westchester, the hudson valley and connecticut) • each ingredient is filled with texture, color and flavor -- we're talking real food from soil that is rich with life, nutrients and the 'terroir' of our local region • our produce is freshly harvested and ethically produced (which means our farmers, producers and drivers are paid a living wage and treated with high regard) • we don't just focus on the quantity and quality of the ingredients, but make sure that our C.S.A. members have an enjoyable experience each and every week • and we promise, if we put rutabagas in your basket, we'll also include a recipe, in fact we send recipes every single week with the hope of inspiring you to try new and different ways to use the ingredients in your baskets • our C.S.A. is worry-free, convenient, fun, educational and truly scrumptious!
*back to that "geo-local" piece - while it would be lovely to give you avocados, oranges, kiwis, and coconuts in your spring C.S.A. basket -- it's just not going to happen here • our produce is strictly local (as-in 100 miles or closer), not from pennsylvania, florida or mexico • we may include some of our private-label preserved foods or some special spices, coffees or other surprise ingredients from donna's farmer friends in far away places... but our C.S.A. produce is strictly local.
