A Very Brief History
The Carnegie Hill CSA project started in 1997 as a direct partnership between a community that wanted local, organic produce and a family farm looking to use sustainable land management to build a sustainable business. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a direct relationship between consumers and producers based on a mutual sharing of risks and benefits.
When our group started in 1997, it was far from clear if this model would ultimately succeed. As the years have passed, the group has grown considerably because of greater public awareness of food safety and quality issues. Understanding the source of food, its true cost and the sustainability of the production and delivery models have become increasingly important. And demand has grown enough to support additional sites in the neighborhood.
Today Stoneledge Farm delivers produce to several hundred member families in Manhattan, the Bronx, Westchester and Greene counties. The Carnegie Hill/Yorkville CSA groups have also developed relationships with local producers of meat, poultry, cheese, bread, flowers and more. For more about these providers, click the Farms link.
This website is maintained by and for the Carnegie Hill, Yorkville, and 88th Street pick-up locations. It is designed to be an interactive resource allowing members to communicate with one another.
