We’re excited to offer a diverse veggie CSA share for the 2017 season – bring home a bountiful variety of in-season vegetables every week with Solid Ground Farm’s CSA.  We will have pick ups on-farm at Hidden Valley Road in Kingston, as well as at Pathfinder Farms in Catskill.

In an effort to meet the needs of different family sizes, we offer two share sizes, which are determined using a customizable point system.  This means that each week, you can choose what you want.

Select your CSA location to learn about the share options and for registration information.

Why CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture is a way for farmers and customers to benefit together.  Members get a better price on vegetables by committing to a season-long membership in the farm, and get access to just-out-of-the-field freshness with every weekly pick-up.  Farmers can plan easier knowing they have members they can count on, and the up-front capital allows for investing in equipment, supplies, and seed at the start of the season.  And unlike purchasing your food at a store, farmers and members alike benefit from the close relationship – tell us what your favorite veggies are and we’ll be sure to grow more!
