Our Winter CSA will deliver every 3 weeks. We will be based at the same location – Nativity Church on Rockaway Blvd. in Ozone Park. Delivery Dates are Dec 18, Jan 8, Jan 29, Feb 19, March 12 and April 2.

There will be 3 different share options: Vegan: $240, Lacto/Ovo: $300 or Meat: $300. There is also the option to add on Apples or Cider from Red Jacket Orchard.

If you are interested, please email us at: ozoneparkcsa@gmail.com for a copy of the application.

The list below gives you a sense of what you might get in one winter share. Zaid (Our farmer) says you will get more veggies in Dec. and April. In the other months you could get milk from Ithaca Milk and cheese from Palatine Cheese. The meat, eggs, and dairy are all from pastured animals. Zaid raises the chickens and eggs himself, so they are certified organic. The beef comes from his neighbors, and though it meets organic standards, it is not always certified organic.

Vegetables will be pre-boxed, but items such as flour, eggs, meat, dairy, and the added value items (in glass jars) that are part of each share must be picked individually.
