Vegetables:
Vegetables come from our fantastic farmer Fred Lee at Sang Lee Farms, a certified organic specialty vegetable farm in Peconic on the North Fork of Long Island.  For 2019, each veggie share is expected to be 8-12 items that week and this year the season is 24 weeks.  You can sign up for a full share (pick up every week) or a half share (pick up every other week).  Sample share listings for the 2019 Season can be found here.
Member bonus for 2019!  Get 10% off all purchases at the farm and online as a CSA member.  Also, pre-order and receive items from their certified organic kitchen directly to our pick up site without delivery charges.

 

Payment/Pricing:
You can become a member by signing up for a Full or Half Veggie Share. 
The pricing listed on the sign up form includes a $19 administration fee, and a commitment to volunteer (covering two shifts over the course of the season). The farm has advised us that the prices have gone up as all of their costs have gone up this season, especially labor costs as the minimum wage increases each year in a labor intensive industry.
As in past years, we are offering three tiers of pricing:
– Standard pricing to cover the basic costs of the product and CSA administration
– Reduced pricing for those who need it. Separately, if you’re interested in discussing a payment plan or other options, please reach out to brooklynbridgecsa@gmail.com
– Sponsor shares for those that are able to donate a bit extra – please consider it! Sponsor shares subsidize reduced-price shares and enable low-income individuals and families to be part of our CSA.
Add-On Shares:

Updated KITCHEN SHARE for 2019!
MONTHLY (6 deliveries total) including:  1 dressing, 1 dip, 1 pesto, 1 fermented/pickled, 2 (16 oz) soups from the Certified Organic Sang Lee Kitchen.  More info and sample items here.  This is only available monthly (6 deliveries total over the 24 week season.)Fruit
Fred has partnered again with Briermere Farms to bring us this add-on to our CSA offerings. Fruit is conventionally grown, while utilizing many organic practices and composting.Quantity: 3lb bag tree fruit or 1 pint berries per week (If you are interested in 2 fruit shares, please contact us.)

If fruit comes in early or all at once, Briermere may choose to give it out earlier. This would mean more fruit in the early shares and less fruit in later shares. The number of weeks may also be less in this case.   Please read through the share contents CAREFULLY so you understand what fruit CAN grow on Long Island and that week to week you will be getting similar things depending on the time of year. If you do not LOVE apples, we suggest you do not participate in the share as the last month or two is primarily filled with apples.
Note: if you select to include fruit, whole vegetable shares must pick whole fruit shares. Half vegetable shares must choose half fruit shares.


Cheese

This year we will be offering cheese from the east end of Long Island NY as well as from the Hudson Valley NY. You will receive a different type of cheese each week from one of eight different farms! This combination gives you a wonderful selection of soft, medium and hard cheese textures and including cow and goat and sheep’s milk cheeses.
Note: if you select to include cheese, whole vegetable shares must pick whole cheese shares. Half vegetable shares must choose half cheese shares.
