Arden Farm, located in East Aurora, is pleased to announce the opening of their CSA (community supported agriculture) share program for the 2009 season. All of their fruit and vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, employing biodynamic and organic methods.
Arden Farm has been a family farm for over one hundred years, originally bought by Elbert Hubbard, to help feed the Roycroft Community. With this history in mind, they continue to grow the Roycroft way with head, heart and hand.
They offer weekly pickup at the farm in East Aurora, NY. Pick-up in Buffalo may be possible for a distribution point at Artspace Buffalo (please call for more information). The share cost for twelve weeks is $250, payable in advance, or by arrangement. This proves an excellent value in all cost comparisons. Space is limited for 2009.
Community shareholders will receive between ten and fifteen pounds of fruit and vegetables. The weekly pickup time is currently on Thursdays between 3pm and 7pm. Deliveries may be possible. Other items will be available at the farm stand during distribution time to top off your “goodie box”.
They are harvesting this week the following:
• summer squash: zucchini, yellow crookneck, and patty pan
• lettuce, several types
• new red potatoes
• swiss chard
• edible flowers
• basil, cilantro
