Corning Inc Innovation Support Center – Big Flats
We need a minimum of 5 members to add this delivery location
We offer delivery of CSA shares. Our farm is located in Rock Stream, NY just north of Watkins Glen on the west side of Seneca Lake. Our small family farm is certified organic and we grow several varieties of vegetables on 5 acres. Our farm grows and provides CSA members with weekly seasonal vegetables for 5 months (June through October).
What is a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture – this is an agreement between the farmer and the member for an entire growing season. Basically, the member pays the farmer upfront and in return, the farmer grows the food and shares it with the member. With the purchase of a CSA Share, the farm has the funds to get the season going, can focus on growing, and knows that the veggies will go to a good home. The farmer and the member share the risks and the bounty of farming together. Ultimately, the member knows their farmer personally and gains insight into how and where their food is grown.
What makes our CSA special? We offer delivery locations in Rock Stream, Watkins Glen, Corning, Painted Post, Gang Mills, Hammondsport, Horseheads, and Geneva. You can see all the locations HERE. We deliver CSA Shares to your location, meet me there for a quick swap of your “crop box” with veggies; you return your empty box weekly. A weekly update is emailed to you on Tuesday and you can see what is coming for the week. On our website, we have a Vegetable Directory with pictures of each vegetable with recipes, cooking and storage tips, and ideas to help you get the most out of your weekly veggies. We also have a variety of events on the farm throughout the season that can be educational, hands-on and useful for our members. At the end of each season, we have a Fall Open House at the farm. This is our annual event when we prepare seasonal dishes for you and offer current and new members a discount to join for the next growing season. Farm tours are always available.
How do I join? We have an online membership form and accept payments online or you can mail your payment to the farm. We offer several payment options – Split Payments (2); Deposit with monthly payments; $50 discount if paid in full on or before the Fall Open House (October); $25 discount if paid in full by March 1st.
