For 22 weeks starting in June, Central Brooklyn CSA members can pick up a generous weekly share of vegetables, with optional fruit and eggs every Thursday (or every other Thursday for half share members). This year, we are also offering a maple share.
For 2021, the Central Brooklyn CSA is offering pre-boxed weekly vegetables directly from the farmer, with optional fruit and eggs. To reduce food handling and minimize risk, packing is performed at clean facilities and pick-up sites will follow a sanitary distribution protocol.
The price of a share varies based on your income. We also accept SNAP.
2021 CBCSA Prices
|Your Tier||Full Share (3-4 people; pick up weekly)||Half Share (1-2 people; pick up every other week)|
|Tier 4: for those whose gross annual household income is over $60k||$656|

Full payments are due before the first distribution unless you are paying with SNAP. If you are purchasing a share with SNAP benefits, a $25 deposit is required to secure your share. The remaining portion is paid monthly during the season at distribution. There is a $34 box fee ($17 for half shares) for the 2021 season as the farm continues to take extra safety protocols and help us minimize time at distribution.
In most years CSA members are required to contribute to this volunteer-led effort by working at our distribution location during the season. Please note that:
- Everyone you see working at distribution is a volunteer
- Member volunteers are necessary to a successful season
We understand this season that not all members will feel safe participating and thus work shifts will be voluntary for 2021. If you are able and willing to help, everyone will receive a request to sign up for volunteer slots by email prior to the season start. Shifts will take place on Thursdays, beginning June 4th, Each shift runs 4:45 pm-7:45 pm. Please follow COVID-19 prevention guidelines when you complete your work shift on site.
