Registration for the 2017 season is now open!
Whether you’re a returning member or a newcomer interested in receiving fresh, high-quality food grown on a sustainable, no-till organic farm, now is the time to sign up!
Most of the following info (and more!) is on our brochure:
In 2017, we are accepting 60 members, and the season runs from the first full week of June to the first full week of November, plus a Thanksgiving share.
Our shares typically contain 8-12 different kinds of vegetables each week. Depending on the season and weather, each share represents $40-$80 of produce at market value.
For pricing this year, we have decided to offer a sliding scale: this may be familiar to some folks from “pay what you can” options for event tickets or restaurants. Here’s how it works: choose a weekly price from $25-$32, and multiply that number by 24 weeks. (The totals range from $600 – $768, and the median price is $684.)
NOTE: The sliding scale is simply a financial choice and doesn’t affect the share — that is, the size of each share remains the same no matter what you choose to pay!
(Please do not let cost prohibit your participation: in addition to the sliding scale, feel free to contact us to discuss a payment plan.)
Bi-weekly option: Shares can be split into A and B weeks for customers who prefer a share every other week. The bi-weekly price is your chosen weekly price (see sliding scale above), multiplied by 12 weeks instead of 24. (All B week shares will include Thanksgiving share, and A weeks wishing to receive thanksgiving share will simply begin on the second A-week.)
The two pick-up options are:
- Tuesdays at the farm in Gardiner, NY from 2:30 to 7:00
- Wednesdays at the Hudson Highlands Land Trust office in Garrison, NY from 4:00 to 7:00 (requires a one-time $75 transportation fee)
*A very limited number of Saturday shares may be available for pick-up in the barn and/or at the Pine Bush Farmers Market. Due to us being away at market on Saturdays, these shares will be a pre-boxed style for an added packing cost. If you are interested in this, please let us know so we can assess the possibility.
Checks should be made out to Second Wind CSA. Please send your order form and full or partial payment to:
Second Wind CSA
158 Marabac Rd.
Gardiner, NY 12525

Thank you for your interest — we look forward to a great season!
