Wait list now open

The bad news is that enrollment is now closed. The good news is that our wait list is now open! Click here if you’d like to join it. We’ll be in touch if a slot opens up!

If somebody drops out and you get in before our first distribution on June 10th then great! If you get in at some point mid season, the cost will be pro-rated to account for any weeks that you’ve missed prior to joining.

Shrooms, anyone?

We’ve partnered with a local mushroom grower to bring our members an optional mushroom share add-on! Taking mushroom orders till May 24th.

And just a reminder that veggie, fruit, egg, and maple shares can all be ordered till May 22nd.

Ask us anything! No really.

We’re hosting a Q&A on zoom, where you can get all your questions answered by the CSA core group. We’re the volunteers who run this CSA, most of us have been members for years and years, and there’s honestly probably not a question you can think of to ask that we won’t know the answer to. Come join us, even just to say hi:

Saturday March 27th at 10 AM

Greetings from farmers Ted & Jan

Ted and Jan (the kind and gentle souls with big smiles and very green thumbs who grow all of our veggies up at Windflower Farm) have written a letter intended for YOU, all of our prospective members!

Warm greetings from all of us at a cold and snowy Windflower Farm! On behalf of the entire Windflower team, I write to invite you to join us for the 2021 CSA season – our 22nd year on the farm. There is still half a foot of snow outside, but it’s going fast, spring is just around the corner, and in the warmth and sunshine of our greenhouses, tens of thousands of spring and summer vegetables are getting their start.

Members of the CSA will get 22 weekly deliveries of fresh, organically grown herbs, greens and seasonal vegetables of all kinds from our solar powered farm in the upper Hudson Valley. You’ll get bicolor sweet corn, tomatoes galore, colorful peppers, salad greens of every kind, cucumbers, carrots, squashes, red onions, shallots, broccoli, red cabbage, fingerling potatoes, fresh green beans, dill, cilantro, basil and much, much more.

This year, we’ll be working more closely with some of our neighboring organic growers both to enhance our offerings of beans, carrots and squash and to mitigate some of the risk inherent in producing everything in one place. When we do decide to make a crop purchase, it will only be from a farmer we know and whose vegetables are certified organic.

At Windflower Farm, we offer optional shares of brown eggs from the Davis’s pastured hens, and fresh fruits from our farm and throughout the Hudson Valley. New this year, we will be offering maple items from the Davis family. I am sorry to say that we will not be offering a cut flower share this year – Jan will instead be spending the year to work on a long-postponed art project.

Our veteran farm crew is returning, and most are already busy in the greenhouse. They are not only experienced and responsible vegetable growers, but they have completely embraced the new protocols around Covid-19. As a result, the team has stayed healthy throughout the pandemic and we feel we are able to deliver a safe vegetable share to you each and every week of the season.  

Our thanks to everyone who made last year’s CSA season a success. Food safety has been a primary concern of ours from the beginning. Our best management practices are informed by the latest information from the CDC and Cornell University Extension. We will continue to pre-box your shares in our safe facilities at the farm. In that way, we will be reducing the food handling chain and your exposure to risk. Your produce boxes and egg cartons can be returned to the farm to be safely reused or recycled.

Why join a CSA? You’ll get to eat the freshest of local vegetables and you’ll be exposed to some new vegetables and new ways of preparing them. You’ll develop a relationship with the farmers who grow your food and the practices they use, largely through weekly newsletters and Instagram postings (https://www.instagram.com/windflowerfarm/) this year, and through farm visits once the pandemic is behind us. Perhaps best of all, you’ll get to be part of a community of your neighbors with a common interest in food, health and sustainability.

We hope you’ll join us for the 2021 season, and we thank you for your generous support of our farm!

We’re taking summer enrollments now!

Hi friends, neighbors, returning members, and everyone else who’s interested in cooking with fresh local veggies grown with love on a family farm in upstate New York. We’re excited and humbled to be providing ethically sourced, quality produce to residents of the Lower East Side for our 17th summer season! Enrollment link is here:

https://windflowerfarm.wufoo.com/forms/stanton-street-csa-2021-shares/

Veggie share cost:
$585 if you enroll by March 28
$620 if you enroll by May 2
$640 if you enroll by May 22

This summer we’ll be keeping in place the covid precautions that we implemented last summer–all members must arrive at the garden masked, shares will come pre-packaged inside cardboard boxes, and distributions will happen at the front gate of the garden instead of on the back patio.

We’re looking forward to another delicious season with all of you!

Don’t sleep on topping off your veg share with a fruit share!
