Each member will receive a share of the weekly harvest through the growing season. Crop conditions may vary and so will the variety and amount of produce. You will receive a variety of vegetables that change with the season. Each week you should receive between 6 to 12 different types of vegetables and fresh herbs. Over the course of the season a weekly share weight averages between 10 and 15 lbs. We currently have a twenty-two week season which runs from mid-May to mid-October.
When growing conditions allow we may be able to include some fruit (like rhubarb and cantaloupe).
Cascade Farm is a CSA farm serving our local communities (located in the lower Hudson Valley on the Dutchess / Putnam border). This will be our 15th season as a CSA!
Cascade Farm has undertaken education goals through an association of our CSA Program and our farm school. CSA farms provide an opportunity for farm members to collectively support local farming and build community. The resulting farm harvest is divided among the CSA member families each week during the growing season while the operating farm provides a forum for education, engaging students of all ages, to understand and take responsibility for the source of their food. We believe that the balance between the CSA (farming opportunities) and the farm school (learning opportunities through farming) based on sustainable principles, provides an opportunity for positive change within the local community.
