Greetings CSA members and potential members,
During these unprecedented times, we want to tell you that we are here for you. We are growing vegetables for the season ahead in the same quantities as we did last season. We are planning to feed you all, no matter what.
While so much is unknown right now about how the next few months will go, we do know that we are an essential business, and that now more than ever, many are realizing the importance of securing a food source close to home.
We might have to shift our systems and adjust our protocols to comply with safe handling, distancing, and the like this season. We assure you that we will find a way to deliver your vegetables to your neighborhood this season.
We would like to thank you for your continued support over the past seasons, and for your support this season, when things are changing all around us. Your investment in your food source now ensures you will have the best possible produce and add on items all season long.
We will keep you updated as things shift, and look forward to seeing some of you on our ZOOM meet the farmer session in April.
William, Fred & Lucy
Sang Lee Farms Team
Our 2020 season will run from June 3rd to November 11th for Vegetable Shares. Pick up Wednesdays from 5pm-8pm at First Presbyterian Church, 124 Henry St, Brooklyn.
Vegetables come from our fantastic farmer Fred Lee at Sang Lee Farms, a certified organic specialty vegetable farm in Peconic on the North Fork of Long Island. For 2020, each veggie share is expected to be 8-10 items that week and this year the season is 24 weeks. You can sign up for a full share (pick up every week) or a half share (pick up every other week). Sample share listings for the 2020 Season can be found here.
– Standard pricing to cover the basic costs of the product and CSA administration
– Reduced pricing for those who need it. Separately, if you’re interested in discussing a payment plan or other options, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
– Sponsor shares for those that are able to donate a bit extra – please consider it! Sponsor shares subsidize reduced-price shares and enable low-income individuals and families to be part of our CSA.
KITCHEN SHARE –
MONTHLY (6 deliveries total) including: 1 dressing, 1 dip, 1 pesto, 1 fermented/pickled, 2 (16 oz) soups from the Certified Organic Sang Lee Kitchen. More info and sample items here. This is only available monthly (6 deliveries total over the 24 week season.)
Fred has partnered again with Briermere Farms to bring us this add-on to our CSA offerings. Fruit is conventionally grown, while utilizing many organic practices and composting.
Quantity: 3lb bag tree fruit or 1 pint berries per week (If you are interested in 2 fruit shares, please contact us.)
If fruit comes in early or all at once, Briermere may choose to give it out earlier. This would mean more fruit in the early shares and less fruit in later shares. The number of weeks may also be less in this case. Please read through the share contents CAREFULLY so you understand what fruit CAN grow on Long Island and that week to week you will be getting similar things depending on the time of year. If you do not LOVE apples, we suggest you do not participate in the share as the last month or two is primarily filled with apples.
Note: if you select to include fruit, whole vegetable shares must pick whole fruit shares. Half vegetable shares must choose half fruit shares.
This year we will be offering cheese from the east end of Long Island NY as well as from the Hudson Valley NY. You will receive a different type of cheese each week from one of eight different farms! This combination gives you a wonderful selection of soft, medium and hard cheese textures and including cow and goat and sheep’s milk cheeses.
Note: if you select to include cheese, whole vegetable shares must pick whole cheese shares. Half vegetable shares must choose half cheese shares.
