Central Brooklyn CSA and Windflower Farm CSA
Fresh, Local and Certified Organic
Dear CSA Member,
Happy Spring from Windflower Farm! On behalf of the Central Brooklyn CSA and the entire Windflower team, I write to invite you to join us for the 2023 CSA season – our 24th year on the farm. In the warmth and sunshine of our greenhouses, tens of thousands of spring and summer vegetables are getting their start.
Members of the CSA will get 22 weekly deliveries of fresh, organically grown herbs, greens and seasonal vegetables of all kinds from our solar powered farm in the upper Hudson Valley. You’ll get bicolor sweet corn, tomatoes galore, colorful peppers, salad greens of every kind, cucumbers, carrots, squashes, red onions, shallots, broccoli, red cabbage, fingerling potatoes, fresh green beans, dill, cilantro, basil and much, much more.
This year, we’ll continue to work closely with some of our neighboring organic growers both to enhance our offerings of vegetables and to mitigate some of the risks inherent in producing everything in one place. When we do decide to make a crop purchase, it will only be from a farmer we know and whose vegetables are certified organic.
At Windflower Farm, we also have optional shares of brown eggs from a neighbor’s pastured hens, fresh fruits from our farm and throughout the Hudson Valley and a la carte offerings of local maple products and grains.
Our veteran farm crew is returning, and most are already busy in the greenhouse. They are not only experienced and responsible vegetable growers, but they have completely embraced the protocols around Covid-19 and USDA’s new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). As a result, the team has stayed healthy throughout the pandemic, and we feel we are able to deliver a safe vegetable share to you each and every week of the season.
We hope you’ll join us for the 2023 season. Please click this link to learn more and to purchase a CSA share: Central Brooklyn CSA – 2023 Membership Form (wufoo.com).
Why join a CSA? You’ll get to eat the freshest of local vegetables and you’ll be exposed to some new vegetables and new ways of preparing them. You’ll develop a relationship with the farmers who grow your food and the practices they use through weekly newsletters and Instagram postings (https://www.instagram.com/windflowerfarm/), and through our mid-summer open house on the farm. Perhaps best of all, you’ll get to be part of a community of your neighbors with a common interest in food, health and sustainability.
We’ll also be hosting our annual farm party again this season! Stay tuned for more information.
Thank you for your generous support of our farm! Please follow the link above to learn more and to become a CSA member:
Our best wishes,
Ted and Jan Blomgren
