CSA & Farm Stand

The 2016 Pfeiffer Center CSA

The Pfeiffer Center's 2016 CSA offers 24 weekly pickups of our own freshly harvested, biodynamically raised vegetables, herbs and flowers from June to November. At our market-style CSA, shareholders will select and pack their own boxes with a generous selection from the harvest of the day; a gardener will be there to assist and answer questions.

Share cost: $720-$960 sliding scale ($30-$40 per week). A limited number of shares are still available. For information, call 845-352-5020 x20, email csa@pfeiffercenter.org, or click here to download the Member Commitment Form.

Purchase a Share for a Family in Need

Shares purchased under this plan will be allotted to families in need identified through our friends at Helping Hands. Your donation of at least $360 (one-half of the price of a share) will be matched by the Pfeiffer Center so that a family in need can enjoy a season of fresh biodynamic produce.

What Is a CSA?

Community-Supported Agriculture makes a farm’s customers into stakeholders by asking them to purchase the season’s crop long before it is harvested. Introduced to North America by Trauger Groh and other biodynamic farmers in the 1980s, the CSA movement works on the principle that economic activity should serve the needs of the community over the maximization of profit. By integrating farms and communities, CSAs help bring to life the biodynamic and anthroposophical goal of reuniting culture and agriculture. CSA members “meet their farmer” every week, closing the gulf between agricultural producers and consumers that Rudolf Steiner observed in his Agriculture lectures of 1924.

The Pfeiffer Center Farm Stand

Starting June 16, and every Thursday through the summer, you will find fresh-picked, biodynamically raised produce and herbs from the Pfeiffer Center Garden, Molina Field, and the Healing Plants Garden in our self-serve farm stand. Also watch for Garden Gold biodynamic compost, our own herb salts and salves, and other special treats. The stand opens at 9:00am. We look forward to seeing you!

Farm Stand Parking

Farm stand customers, please note that there is no parking at the garden. Please park on Orchard Lane (behind Orchard House and Holder House) and walk across Hungry Hollow Road to the garden. For a map, click here.
