Youth Farm Vegetables

Want Fresh Produce Every Week? Want to Support the Youth Farm?

When you become a member of the CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from the Youth Farm, grown organically in Brooklyn NY. 
(a typical fall share)

Vegetable Share
• Members receive a box of 6-12 vegetables and herbs every week for 22 weeks.
• CSA runs from the third week of June to the second week of November.
• Farm share costs between $500-$625 on a sliding scale. You may pay up front or in two installments.
• If you can’t use a whole share or are going away for part of the season, share your share with someone else, or donate your share while you’re gone.

Membership granted on a first come first serve basis. CSA membership is not tax deductible.

CSA Pick-up Sites & Days:
The Youth Farm (farmer's market): Wednesdays, 2:30-6:30pm

What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture

When you join a CSA, you become a partner in the farm. Joining a CSA is like getting a magazine subscription; you join up front, and then receive a portion of what the farm produces every week. Some weeks you may get less, some you may get more. Paying up front provides the capital the farm needs at the beginning of the season, and guarantees a good home for the produce the farm will produce.


Why Join?
It’s affordable! For about $22 a week, you will be getting 6-12 fresh organic vegetables and herbs; that’s a lot cheaper than buying from a supermarket!

It’s fresh & local! All the food is produced right here at the High School, tended to and cared for by our students and farm managers. We harvest the produce the day of pick up; you can’t get fresher than that!

• It’s healthy and tasty! Because we give you the produce the same day we harvest, the produce won’t lose precious nutrients and flavor from storage or shipping. Additionally, all our produce is produced organically; that means no toxic pesticides or herbicides are in your food or polluting the environment.


Every week we put together a CSA Newsletter with information about the shares, recipe ideas, news and notes about the farm and an introduction to some of our staff and apprentices.
