Central Valley Farm started getting into the produce aspect of farming over 10 years ago. What started out as running a small CSA program at our farm has grown into so much more. Now we offer a bigger and better CSA program, as well as sell our produce at our farm stand and at several farmers markets in New Jersey and in New York City. Over the years we have branched out to growing a huge assortment of produce from asparagus to zucchini, and everything in between.
The produce that you get from us is grown as naturally as possible. Everything that we grow is NON GMO. Our farming practices include some organic standards. We use natural fertilizer products. We are a minimum spray farm using IMP Pest Management which includes crop rotation.
What is a CSA?
A Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation where the growers and consumers share the risks and benefits of food production. Our CSA is of a system of weekly pick up, at the farm, of seasonal, naturally grown fruits and vegetables. With a CSA, you know you’re getting locally grown, seasonal vegetables often picked the same day you get them. Produce from our CSA doesn’t spend days on a truck traveling cross-country, like many conventional foods do, and it doesn’t sit on the shelf for days before you take it home. Since they’re so fresh, foods from our farm often taste better. Your diet will improve, because you’ll likely eat more produce.
How does our CSA work?
Each week, on either Friday or Saturday, you will come to our farm to pick up your share of freshly picked produce that is currently in season.
We expect 2023 pick ups to begin around the beginning of June and end in mid October.
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT EXTENDED UNTIL MARCH 31, 2024! Just click the red button below to get your application to pick up on our farm.
WE OFFER 2 SHARE SIZES!
We offer our standard size share. Typically a standard size share is enough for a family of four.We also offer a reduced size share. That is for those with smaller families or appetites. The reduced size share will get about 3/4 of what the standard size share will get every week. If one share is too much for you a great option is to split a share with friends or a family member.
Our CSA typically lasts 20 weeks.
WE ALSO OFFFER OUR OWN FARM FRESH EGGS TO ADD ON TO YOUR PRODUCE SHARE
We also offer a standard size share for pick up at some of our market locations.
