Hi, from Allison Patrick and Alison Fletcher, Second Wind’s farmers! We are a 55-member certified organic CSA at Four Winds Farm in Gardiner, NY. We grow our vegetables using the sustainable, no-till method put in place at Four Winds by farmers Jay and Polly Armour over 20 years ago. Read the “About the Farm” section for more information about our growing practices.
Second Wind CSA provides a generous amount of diverse, seasonal produce that NY veggie lovers know well, plus some more specialty culinary delights. If you like your vegetables to nourish your artistic as well as your gastronomic sensibility, the beautiful produce Second Wind provides might just be the thing for you.
Our share-season runs for 23 weeks, from the first full week in June through the last week in October, plus a Thanksgiving share in November. We have a Tuesday pickup on the farm and a Wednesday pickup in Garrison, at the Hudson Highlands Land Trust office. Membership cost for the season is $540, which works out to about $23.50 per week. We think this is an exceptionally great deal!
You can read some reviews from our current and past members at Local Harvest.
Members can expect the following varieties of produce throughout the season, plus more:
- Asian Greens
- Bok Choy
- Broccoli Raab
- Lettuce and gourmet salad mix
- Sugar Snap Peas
- Summer Squash
