(Montclair,NJ)The Bloomfield-Montclair CSA is a group of over 130 members who support the sustainable farming activities of local farmers. The weekly vegetable shares are provided in partnership with John Krueger, currently at Starbrite Farm. Starbrite grows organic vegetables for our CSA and for a few area markets. The season runs June-November with pick-ups at one of our three pick up sites in Montclair and Cedar Grove on Tuesdays from 2:30 to 6:30. Members help out at the distribution a couple of times per season and have opportunities to visit the farm. In addition to the vegetable share, the Bloomfield-Montclair CSA also coordinates separate fruit, dessert and cider shares in partnership with Tree-licious Orchards. Members who sign up for the fruit share receive 1-2 varieties of fruit each week, starting with Bing cherries, and progressing through the season from sugar and shiro plums, to peaches, nectarines, and finally pears and apples in the fall. While the fruit is not organic (growing organic fruit in NJ is quite difficult) they are low-spray, and follow the NJ Fruit Integrated Pest Management program. Dessert shares include weekly small desserts or a pie of the month. Members also have the opportunity to order egg and poultry shares provided by Griggstown Farm. Members may choose the number of dozen eggs and fresh or frozen broilers for biweekly deliveries from Griggstown. The CSA also coordinates one-time orders of organic strawberries, blueberries and local honey.
