Click here for info about our CSA shares in Saugerties/Catskill  – pick-up at Pathfinder Farms

Kingston/Lomontville members pick up on the farm, a beautiful spot on Hidden Valley Road.  The CSA season runs from the beginning of June through the end of October.  We’re now accepting registrations for the 2017 season.  You also have the option to purchase several add-ons, including fruit, mushrooms, eggs, and maple syrup (details on add-ons are here, and you can select them on the registration form).

Free Choice CSA

We offer a free choice model, where you get to pick what’s in your share from the harvest week to week, selecting from a variety of veggies based on total points.  We’ll usually have about 15 items available to choose from.  You will be able to choose 7 or 9 units of those items.  A unit may be two pounds of tomatoes, a big bunch of kale, a bag of salad mix, a pumpkin, etc.

We like the free choice model because the biggest concern we’ve heard over the years from CSA members is that there’s always certain items that go uneaten – after all, everyone’s taste is different.  When you get to make your own decision about what you take home, you’re going to select what you know you’ll eat, and you get to enjoy healthy, delicious food that’s fresher than anything you can find in the grocery store.  (We’ll still provide recipes and descriptions for unusual items to encourage you to try new things!)

We’ll occasionally limit an item in a given week (ie, “maximum of 1 watermelon this week”) to make sure that every member – even if you come at the end of the day – gets a complete selection.  There will be plenty of everything to go around!

So, what does this look like?

One week, you might choose to take home a hefty load of tomatoes along with some onions and cilantro to make a giant batch of your signature salsa.  Another week, it could be three types of cooking greens, carrots, beets, kabocha squash, garlic and hakurei turnips.  Sometimes, you may feel adventurous and want to try out those watermelon radishes and romanesco cauliflower; other weeks, you’re looking for the more familiar staples for your salads and stir fries.  We look forward to giving you a chance to be yourself while eating with the seasons!

Pick Your Own

And don’t forget that you’ll be able to access our pick-your-own garden every week during pickup.  We’ll be growing herbs, flowers, cherry tomatoes and more.  We’ll let you know at pickup each week which parts of the PYO garden are open for harvest.
