Pick-up times:
Thursdays 3:30 – 7:00 PM. Please bring a bag, basket, or box to carry produce home. At 7 p.m. sharp, any items not picked up are collected and donated to Riverdale Senior Services, which provides low-cost or free meals, and on occasion fresh produce, to neighborhood seniors and homebound or low-income frail people.
Pick-Up Address: Riverdale Neighborhood House, 5521 Mosholu Avenue, Riverdale, NY

What if I go on vacation?

Contact your site coordinator to let them know that a) you’re giving your week’s share to a friend who will pick it up or b) you would like the food donated.

Core Committee:

Help lead and chart the future direction of the Riverdale CSA by participating as a member of the Core Committee. The Core Committee facilitates all the on-site tasks of the CSA such as managing pick-up and organizing volunteers. The Core Committee also serves as a way for members to give feedback and shape the nature of our particular Hawthorne Valley CSA relationship. Joining and participating in this group also fulfills the work shift requirement.

Can I split a share?

We offer both full and partial shares. You can also split a share with a friend at pick-up, or on alternate weeks. Email us if you would like help finding another potential member looking to split a share or a partial share.

Does the CSA/Hawthorne Valley Farm accept the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT)/Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP)?

Not at this time. However, we all believe that fresh, sustainably grown food is a vital part of creating healthy people, healthy communities and ultimately a healthy society. Please reach out to the farm if the cost of the CSA is a barrierto explore alternative options.
