10-week Session runs through Summer - June 30 to September 1
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In its simplest form, it is a partnership between farmers and their local community where both parties share the risks and benefits, while supporting sustainable, local agriculture. Farmers receive upfront capital to support the farm while customers will receive fresh, locally grown produce.
Produce will be transported from participating farms to East Meadow Farm, where it will be displayed as a ‘pick your own’ market. Upon arrival, members will be informed of what produce is available for the day. Staff will assist members in picking a predetermined amount of produce. Some produce may be distributed by the item, while others may need to be weighed. Eggs will be sold on pickup day to members on a first come, first served basis.
Who we are?
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau County (CCE Nassau) provides educational programming and direct support to the local community in many components of the food system, including production, access, marketing and promotion of locally produced food, and food literacy. CCE Nassau dedicates more than 20 staff and 100 trained volunteers to food systems work, who in turn collaborate with over 500 organizations in Nassau County to develop and strengthen the food system. To expand our partnership with the residents of Nassau, CCE Nassau is setting up a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. The goal is to provide CSA members with a true farm to table experience, by sourcing produce grown and harvested by 4-H youth on the CCE Nassau-run Dorothy P. Flint (DPF) Farm as well as other local farms.
With over 56 years of experience in farming, Bill Walsh is the mastermind behind CCE Nassau’s farm. Rest assured you will receive produce of the highest quality, grown using sustainable farming techniques. Throughout our CSA season, make sure you pick up Bill’s garlic, potatoes, onions, carrots, and other delicious vegetables! CCE Nassau also collaborates with Anderson’s Farm, Schmitt’s Family Farm, and Briermere Farms to offer variety in our CSA! We will continue to develop relationships with other local farms to bring the highest quality and most nutritious produce straight from the farm to your plate!
