Some of these fields were also built with member support with work-days at the farm where members participated in clearing of the land.
Our first CSA started with a small group of nine people in 1996 at Sixth Street Community Center in the lower east side of Manhattan. Since that time our Community Supported Farm groups have grown with delivery sites in Hoboken, Jersey City, Mahwah, Franklin and we offer on-farm pick-up in Wantage New Jersey. We also grow heirloom transplants for sales at local events & to local supermarkets and other farmers.
Each week during the harvest season, Catalpa Ridge Farm harvests fresh, quality organically grown produce to its member shareholders. The harvest season starts in June and continues for about 21-22 weeks, ending the end of October, The CSF members meet at established locations to pick-up their delivery of fresh produce. A newsletter is distributed to the members on a weekly basis that includes the picks of the week, recipes that relate to the picks and what has been happening at the farm over the last week. We use the newsletter as our main communication tool with our members. It has been critical to maintain recipes that coordinate with our picks-of-the-week. Members love knowing what they can make with their weekly harvests. We also have a website that members can access to see what is new, current photos, happenings, planting schedules, etc.
