Sliding Scale CSA Shares

We believe that all people have a right to healthy and nutritious food. Each year, we offer a limited number of sliding scale shares in order to make our CSA accessible to community members who are not able to afford a share at full price.

The season is 23 weeks long and weekly CSA pickups begin in June 2024. We will announce the specific date in mid to late May, depending on the season. We offer two share sizes: our big share is designed for a 3-4 person family or 1-2 hungry vegetarians. Our small share is designed for 1 person, or 2 people who don’t eat as many vegetables. All shareholders have access to the pick-your-own field Monday-Saturday during daylight hours. Learn more about our CSA at PBFP.

Solidarity Shares

We also offer a very limited number of Solidarity Shares at zero cost to support those most closely impacted by state violence. This share is intended to extend additional support (but is not limited to) our BIPOC, immigrant, refugee, communities as well as others who persistently experience food apartheid* and do not have access to grocery stores with fresh produce in their neighborhood. You can apply for a Solidarity Share by clicking the button below.

Want to help share the harvest? Click HERE to donate to our food justice fund and help us make fresh, local food available to even more families!

Funding for this program is also supported by generous grants made by Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, Ulster County Recovery and Resilience, and Anonymous.

*Food apartheid, as opposed to “food deserts,” refers to a community’s lack of access to healthy, local, and nutritious food as brought on by systemic inequality. Read more about food apartheid HERE. Read more about systemic inequality HERE
