It's our 1st year bring local family farmed produce to Amsterdam, NY.

Join us and get your weekly box of family farmed organic produce.

There is nothing more satisfying than knowing who grows your food, where it comes from, and how it was grown. Veggies don’t get any fresher unless you grow them yourself. Fruit and egg shares are available too.

What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture - Is a partnership between a community and a farm. The farmer gets a guaranteed income and market for their produce. The farmer calculates what they need to grow food for us, which is more efficient than planting extra that may not sell at a farmers market.

How does it work? You buy a "share" in a farm for a season. A typical vegetable share provides enough for a household of two adults. The shares will be smaller in the beginning; as the season progresses there will be more in the box.
Our CSA farmer will accept SNAP if that helps you too.
The season runs 22 weeks from June to November. The pick-up location will be the 78 Wall St community garden on Tuesday from 4-6 pm.

Registration for 2021 is currently CLOSED for the season. To join the waitlist please send an email HERE.

We would like to thank the Amsterdam community for supporting our mission to improve the community's quality of life through programs that empower residents to transform neighborhoods and to create a clean and healthy environment. We especially want to thank Debbie & Lionel Gibbs for their generous support; Rudy & Linda Horlbeck from Merry Hill Farm for their truckloads of compost alpaca manure over the years; Gina Champian and Cancer Prevention in Action for the sunshade canopy; Joe Puglise and Doug Sweet for digging deep and helping us get the post up for the canopy. We also want to thank Lowes for providing tools at cost for our grant and donating flowers to the 78 Wall St community garden. Thank you Sticker Mule for the steel trash receptacle with Help Keep Amsterdam Clean sign.

To all our volunteers "THANK YOU!"
