why join the pound ridge organics summer c.s.a.?

we all have enough stress and uncertainty in our lives right now without having to worry about where and how to find fresh wholesome authentically local organic food • pound ridge organics is here to help you with our legendary C.S.A. to nourish you from the first day of summer until the last • C.S.A. members will receive a weekly basket filled with meticulously curated, freshly harvested, organic local produce - plus some very special surprises and gifts • to learn more about C.S.A.s click -> here.

what makes the pound ridge organics summer 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 summer 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.
