Our Multi Farm CSA - Benefits & List of Offerings

Thank you for being a member of  - Natural Nutrients by Ambrosia Farms- our UNIQUE Multi Farm CSA!

- members have wider choice to fill their box with whatever appeals to them, within certain limitations.
- you are not limited to produce. We include the option for shareholders to buy shares of eggs, homemade pizza, meat, cheese, fruit, flowers and other farm products along with their veggies.

- we buy from several farmers in addition to our own, to offer the widest variety to their members

- Farmers Frozen Foods is our original line of items frozen in our small batch processing center - this winter you will wonder how you ever ate meals without them - these frozen veggies extend our growing season for you without the prep - just heat and serve!

Advantages for farmers:
Get to spend time marketing the food early in the year, before their 16 hour days in the field begin
Receive payment early in the season, which helps with the farm's cash flow
Have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow
Direct feedback from members

Advantages for members
Eat ultra-fresh food, with all the flavor and vitamin benefits
Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking
Usually get to visit the farm at least once a season
Find that kids typically favor food from "their" farm
Develop a relationship with the farmer who grows their food
Help preserve family farms and open spaces in the area
A multi farm CSA has a much wider range of offerings

List of Offerings
You may choose from this list and many others posted and emailed throughout the season.  The value of each item is subtracted from your $195.00 membership fee , payable to
Progressive Advisors (our parent company)
Box 463
Bridgewater, NY  13313

Members who live nearby will receive a weekly or bi monthly package of mostly fresh produce of their choosing.  We encourgage members to try everything as it becomes available.  We will post links to recipes and videos for ideas on how to eat, cook, and enjoy them. Members who live further away will recieve mostly Farmers Frozen Foods, frozen chicken and duck, beef, maple syrup, honey, artisan cheeses and chocolates and other non perishables. Everyone is welcome to visit the farm frequently throughout the season - we will prepare a lovely Farmhouse Picnic Basket, as part of your value.  Why not "pick your own" veggies?
