Farm Share

Enrollment for the 2022 Farm Share Program is open! From June to November, we offer Stone Barns Center members weekly vegetable boxes featuring a diverse selection from the Stone Barns Center farm. Through our Arts & Ecology Lab, we also offer weekly pick-ups of fresh bouquets for your home. If you’re interested in growing your own, purchase one of our Garden Kits! Looking for an egg share? We will have eggs in production in the fall.

The 2022 vegetable and flower shares are only available to Stone Barns Center members and require active membership for the duration of the season. Sign-up for a membership here. Members will receive links to purchase the vegetable and flower shares via email. SNAP recipients are welcome to purchase vegetable shares without a membership.

The Stone Barns Center Vegetable Share
What distinguishes the Stone Barns Center Vegetable Share from other CSAs? We’re on a mission to involve and educate our community. Through weekly storytelling, evaluations and workshops, members will deeply connect with the growing process from seed to harvest. The Vegetable Share is an opportunity to learn about climate change, food insecurity and farmer equity, as well as to foster an ongoing connection with our members. By joining the Vegetable Share, members pledge their commitment—to farmers, ecological partners and their community—to create a better food system together.

Registration:

  • Pricing:
    • Standard: $1,250.00 ($50/week)
    • Supporting Neighbor: $1,250.00 + $375.00 towards donated Vegetable Shares and Garden Kits for local partners like the Life Center, serving women and children in the immigrant community; Sleepy Hollow High School‘s food insecurity initiative; and various community gardens. Thank you for joining us in addressing food insecurity and increasing access to healthy, nourishing food.
    • SNAP share: $16/week, payable via EBT card. We ask that SNAP members sign up for the whole season as a commitment to our program, but we will charge by the week during pick-up.
  • Registration for the season includes one share of farm-fresh produce from our fields, greenhouse and terrace garden every week for 25 weeks, from June 3 – November 19.
  • Only full shares are available; we do not sell half shares. If you are looking for half shares or a different pick-up schedule, please refer to the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition.

How it Works:

  • Your share will be available for pick-up on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00am – 4:00pm.
  • During pick-up, you will be required to show proof on arrival of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes a booster shot for those who are eligible.
  • Each week’s share provides enough produce to supplement a two- to four-person household.
  • SNAP shares do not require a Stone Barns Center membership. If you would like to sign up for a SNAP share, please email info@stonebarnscenter.org to receive your enrollment link, while supplies last.

The Stone Barns Center Flower Share
We are offering weekly pick-ups of our fresh blooms. These subscriptions are offered for a full season of bouquets (weekly, May-October) or for two month bundles (weekly in May/June, July/August and September/October). Help support the Arts & Ecology Lab’s goal of creating a market for pollinator-friendly plants by showcasing these flowers in your home. The Arts & Ecology Lab works in collaboration with the farm to feature the unique benefits of the plants in our hedgerows and pollinator gardens, as well as provide you with access to new cut flower varieties from our trial research gardens. The Lab also works with florists and advocates in the flower supply chain to broadcast design trends that support small-scale floriculture and climate-beneficial plants.

Registration:

  • Pricing:
    • Whole season (weekly full bouquets from May 6 – October 28): $1,300 + sales tax
    • Two month spans of weekly full bouquets:
      • May/June: $400 + sales tax
      • July/August: $450 + sales tax
      • September/October: $450 + sales tax

How It Works

  • Subscribers to the Flower Share will receive updates including plant variety information, their diverse applications and profiles of regional flower farmers and artisans.
  • During pick-up, you will be required to show proof on arrival of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes a booster shot for those who are eligible.

The Stone Barns Center Garden Kits

Join the Arts & Ecology Lab and the Seed Lab in their ongoing research and exploration by purchasing one of our Garden Kits. Each Kit provides all the seeds, plants, supplies, schematics and background information necessary for you and your household to create an abundant home garden. We also offer virtual garden information sessions to review the Kit contents and to answer questions, and members of our farm team and Innovation Labs are available for garden consultation via a dedicated Garden Kit inbox. Garden Kit participants will be invited to a Stone Barns Center Field Day for a garden tour, with our farmers and artisans sharing tips and tricks.

  • The Vegetable Kit: $450 + sales tax
    • In-person pick-ups offered on May 14, July 16 and September 17. $450 is the pro-rated price for the Vegetable Kit, since new sign-ups will have missed the first Kit pick-up on April 16th.
  • The Cut Flower Kit: $300 + sales tax
    • In-person pick-up offered on May 14.
  • Garden Kits are available to members and non-members alike, though quantities are limited.

How It Works:

  • The Vegetable Kit features varieties in the trial stage of development and will populate a 12×15’ vegetable bed or several smaller beds. Seeds include carrots, turnips and beets, and seedlings include peas, lettuce, broccoli, pak choi, onion, chard, potato, basil, squash, cucumber, tomato, pepper, cabbages, parsley, kale, escarole, fennel, spinach and an oat & pea cover crop blend.
  • The Cut Flower Kit will populate two 7×3′ garden beds and will bloom from the end of June through October.
  • Garden Kit pick-ups take place in person on the Stone Barns Center campus to allow participants to pose questions to our farm team.
