The Relocators: Obercreek 2014 CSA Signup

  |  October 1, 2013
Obercreek CSA

As I’ve written about a few times in our blog, Mark and I were members of the Obercreek Farm CSA this year. We actually purchased a half share where we picked up from the CSA every other week as opposed to every week.

It’s been lovely and we’ve had many great meals from the contents of those food share pickups. But alas, all good things come to an end; there are only two more pickups in the month of October and we’ll be done for the season.

The good news for us and YOU is that it’s time to sign up for the 2014 Obercreek CSA. Full shares are $650; half shares are $375. The season starts in June and lasts until October for 22 weeks of fresh amazing produce (11 pickups for the half share).

For more information and to sign up, visit the Obercreek Farm website. The website still has information about the 2013 farm share posted. However flyers have been given to current CSA members so apparently they are already taking signups for the 2014 season. Shares are limited so try to sign up before the end of 2013 to get a spot!

Other CSAs in the Hudson Valley Area

If Obercreek isn’t convenient for you there are plenty of other CSAs and farm shares in the Hudson Valley area — you just have to know where to look. I have provided three resources to help — two of the websites below have lists of CSAs across the USA if you’re not located in the Hudson Valley area.

Local HarvestReal time Farms is a crowd-sourced nationwide food guide — meaning all information on the site is user-provided. Consequently, use the site at your own risk. But there seems to be a lot of good information here and you can upload resources and photos of farmers markets, you-pick farms and other farms in your area.
Local HarvestLocal Harvest explains what a CSA is and what to expect when you join one. More importantly, it enables you to search for a CSA in your area. You can search by zip code or city name.
Hudson Valley BountyHudson Valley Bounty is a website with a database helping you to find locally grown and produced products from all over the Hudson Valley. CSAs, farmers markets, restaurants and more can be found here.
