Farms & Products
Stoneledge Farm – Stoneledge Farm, our primary provider and main reason for being, is an organic farm located approximately 120 miles north of New York City in the Northern Catskill region. There, Deborah and Pete Kavakos and their son Peter grow over 45 different vegetables and herbs. The weather and climate hold some restrictions, but old favorites and new varieties are planted in abundance for CSA members and delivered in season to the CSA sites. The greenhouse and fields of Stoneledge Farm are certified organic by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY).
In addition to the vegetable share, Stoneledge partners with neighboring farms to provide a optional fruit share.
Several a la carte items are available to members. They include honey produced by bees on the farm, maple syrup and mushrooms produced by neighbors.
Fair-trade coffee shares and mushroom shares consisting of mushrooms from local farms are available on a subscription basis. Members are encouraged to visit the Stoneledge Farm website for more information and to place orders.
CSA Pastured Meat and Poultry is a coalition of several farmers and artisinal producers in Washington and Saratoga counties. The lead coordinators are Nancy and Alan Brown of Lewis Waite Farm. Products include beef, lamb, pork, poultry, cheese, yogurt, eggs, bread, jams and more. All ordering is a la carte and deliveries are generally made two times per month during the vegetable season and once per month in the off season.
The River Garden is a neighbor of Stoneledge Farm. Bernadette and Walt Kowalski grow organic flowers and produce beautiful bouquets for members interested in subcribing. Most cut flowers sold in this country travel 5000 miles are are grown using a large quantity of pesticides. Environmental issues aside, receiving a weekly bouquet is just about the best attitude adjustment out there.

Hot Bread Kitchen is an artisinal bakery dedicated to preserving bread-making traditions from around the world while provided immigrant women an opportunity to build better lives. We are hoping to have enough demand to set up regular deliveries to the CSA.
