FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct link between farmer and consumer. Members sign up for a ‘share’ to provide the farmer with advance capital before the beginning of the busy growing season. In return, the farmer delivers weekly or bi-weekly bundles of produce for their ‘investors’ at a great value. Members pay in full prior to receiving the first share and reap the bounty throughout the season. Our Rosemary’s Farm CSA is another way for us to work together with our West Village neighbors.
Why join a CSA?
Joining a CSA provides access to fresh produce while bridging the gap between farmer and consumer. By paying in advance, the farmer is provided with financial security to purchase seeds and prepare for the upcoming growing season. Joining a CSA project is the most delicious way to participate in your local food system!

What do I get in my Rosemary’s Farm CSA share?
The beauty of a CSA membership is that the bounty varies for each pickup based on what is growing on the farm that specific week. We rotate our crops on a seasonal basis, though you can generally expect a mix with some of the following in your vegetable share—leafy greens, radishes, peas, seasonal herbs, beets, carrots, spring onions, snap beans, summer squash, cucumber, heirloom tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, melons, celery, fennel, dry beans, cabbages, sweet corn, potatoes, and winter squash. Our fruit share also changes throughout the season but would likely include—berries, cherries, stone fruit, apples, and pears. The pasta and sauce rotates each week with a variety of pasta shapes and seasonal sauces made with the freshest vegetables at Rosemary’s Farm. Our eggs are from heritage breed chickens. Our fresh mozzarella is made with local dairy from the Hudson Valley.
What is the price of the CSA share?
Our standard CSA vegetable share is $200 for the season and includes 10 bi-weekly pickups ($20/week). Our fruit share is $100 for the season ($10/week).
