Sign-Up Now for a new CSA in Brooklyn


Flatbush Farm Share, a new CSA in Brooklyn

Some our our CSA Core Group members with Chris, owner of the Farm at Miller's Crossing, and his son; Paula from Just Food; and Carette and Josh (VISTA volunteer) from NYC Coalition against Hunger.


CSA: Community Supported Agriculture.

A CSA is an opportunity for a group of people to form a direct relationship with a local farmer. Members of a CSA directly benefit by paying less for their produce - 20% savings in an average year - and by getting a weekly delivery of organic produce fresh from the earth. In exchange, CSA members make a financial commitment to a local farm by purchasing a share of its crops before the start of a season. This investment supports farm operating costs, and guarantees a buyer for their harvest. A CSA is great for you, for your community, for the local economy, and for the environment.

Distribution site: Flatbush Reformed Church
(at Flatbush Ave and Church St)
Share Pick-up: Wednesdays, June 3 - October 28, from 5-8pm
Parking lot on site, blocks from Church Ave Q & B train, and the 41 and 35 bus routes.

The mission of Flatbush Farm Share is to make fresh, organic, produce available to any Brooklyn resident, regardless of economic status. We have 100 shares available for all income levels, and a generous subsidy program for low-income members. By joining our CSA, you are not only subscribing to a weekly basket of the most affordable, fresh, organic produce available, and supporting a family-owned farm, you are also making our mission a reality.

To become a member of the Flatbush Farm Share CSA, start by completing the form here!

Looking forward!
