CSA at CUC

CUC participates in Community Supported Agriculture by hosting Roxbury Farms from Summer into Winter.

Get your produce and meat direct from the farm! Fresh vegetables, fruit, and meat are delivered to CUC and picked up. Wednesday afternoons by families across Westchester. The CSA deliveries are weekly from Wed Jun 10 through Wed Nov 4, plus Wed Nov 18. The optional winter vegetable share deliveries are on Wed Dec 2, Wed Jan 6, and Wed Feb 3. The fruit share begins on Wed Jul 15 and runs for 18 weeks with the vegetable share.

What's in a share?

A share provides 10-17 lbs of freshly harvested produce each week.  Given an average harvest, a share provides enough vegetables to feed 2-4 adults eating a vegetable-based diet (400-450 lbs of produce every season).

Each week you will receive 7-12 different varieties of vegetables. You will experience a variety of vegetables that changes with the seasons. From early spring with wide variety of greens, scallions, and radishes, through the peak of the summer with rich flavored tomatoes, freshly picked sweet corn, and green beans, and into the cool days of fall with hearty root vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash, beets, and parsnips.

Sign up now if you're interested! Visit www.roxburyfarm.com for more information and prices, or call 518-758-8558.

For first-hand feedback from last year talk to Rev. Meredith Garmon, Perry Montrose, Amy Swiss, or Emily Economou. Let us know if you're interested in sharing a share with another family -- we'll try and connect people who want to share. Respond to this e-mail or contact Emily at emily.economou@gmail.com.
