Common Thread is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm serving Central New York. CSA members can pick up their shares at the farm in Madison, 5 miles north of Colgate University, or at one of our pick up sites in Clinton, Utica, Rome, Norwich, Syracuse, Dewitt, Manlius, Fairmount, and Fayetteville.
We have standard and small share sizes available at all sites. We offer summer only shares, fall only shares, and full season shares. as well as a winter share. Pick your own crops such as cherry tomatoes, cut flowers, beans, peas, and herbs are available to all CSA members. CSA members learn about and participate in farm through share pick-up, our weekly CSA emails, farm events and open pick your own and volunteer hours.
We use sustainable growing methods and sign the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York's Farmers Pledge. All of the vegetables in our shares are grown on our farm in Madison. We grow a wide variety of crops including lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, watermelons, potatoes, carrots, onions, kale, cilantro, arugula, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, eggplant, cabbages. cucumbers, zucchini/summer squash, escarole, winter squash, garlic, beets, scallions and much more.
We want the CSA to be accessible to all. We have a sliding scale payment system to make it easier for everyone to participate in the farm, and for those who need additional help, we have a sponsored share program.
Join us to enjoy fresh, tasty, healthy produce while making a commitment to support local, sustainable agriculture.

A delicious variety of produce grown on a beautiful farm. My family and I looked forward to visiting the farm every Saturday morning to talk with the farmers and other members, pick our own herbs, flowers, and other crops, and otherwise just enjoy the farm of which we were a part.... [more]
