SBK Does CSA!
We are excited to announce that SBK is hoping to pilot our first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project this September. In partnership with Herondale Farm and Sol Flower Farm, SBK would be a weekly pick up point for organic vegetables and pastured meat and chicken. You can workout and pick up your sustainably grown and raised groceries in one spot! We are so full service.
What’s a CSA?
(From Localharvest.org) “Community Supported Agriculture has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.”
About the Farms
Herondale Farm is located in Ancramdale, NY, not too far from Hudson. Farmer Jerry Peele raises cows, lambs, pigs and chickens on pasture using a traditional rotational grazing system. Cows and lambs are grassfed and finished, pigs and chickens primarily eat off the land with a small supplement of organic feed. Herondale leases part of its land to Sol Flower Farm, which grows a variety of organic vegetables and flowers.
About the Shares
Sol Flower Farm will offer a weekly box of veggies packed with whatever is being harvested from September through November. You’re likely to find yummy items like: summer squash, cucumbers, parsnips, beets, onions, eggplant, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, salad mix, dill, parsley, winter squash and lots more. Boxes are designed to feed 2-4 people.
Herondale Farm will have two kinds of monthly packages: a mixed meat package containing 15 lbs of a variety of steaks, roasts, and sausage from beef, lamb, pork; and a chicken package containing 10 lbs of a whole chicken plus parts and sausage. You can sign up for one or both!
All shares are 4 month memberships.
Meet the Farmers next Wednesday, August 17 at 6pm at the gym. Jerry and Andy (the vegetable guy) will be down to talk to you about all the details of becoming a member. Please come by to learn more! RSVP to margie (at) crossfitsouthbrooklyn (dot) com so we can gauge interest and have enough seats.
