Thanks to the dedication and passion for local, organic food of Sarah Bollman and Leann Weaver of Fairfield, we now have a new organic CSA available in Southport. Thank you Sarah and Leann! Sarah and Leann were buying from the Wilton CSA of Stoneledge Farm. Stoneledge Farm is a 90 acre, certified organic farm located in South Cairo, Greene County, New York in the foothills of the Northern Catskills. The owners asked Sarah and Leann to set one up further east in Fairfield County. They worked in tandem to create this new CSA location for all of us to enjoy.
About 40 spots are still available. The cost is $485 for 24 weeks, June through November. That’s $20.20 a week for fresh, local, organic produce! Payments are made in three installments. Click here to sign up online. The farmer keeps members very involved, emailing about crop yields and what’s included in the current week’s share. Every week there are at least one or two herbs included in the share.
Pickup is Wednesdays, time TBD, so it will not interfere with preschool traffic at Trinity Church, Southport on Pequot Avenue. The hours will probably be 4-6 or 5-7 pm.
Any of the unclaimed shares will be donated to programs including Operation Hope and the Connecticut Food Bank.
