About Us

The Carnegie Hill CSA is a member of the Stoneledge Farm CSA network. Stoneledge Farm grows organic vegetables for its members and delivers them weekly to pickup locations throughout the NYC metro area. Carnegie Hill CSA members receive a share of these vegetables.

HISTORY

Member Bonnie Webber and Farmer Debbie Kavakos formed the Carnegie Hill CSA more than 20 years ago. We are proud to say that the Carnegie Hill CSA was one of the first in NYC, and the very first for Stoneledge Farm. Today Stoneledge Farm has 26 delivery locations in NY and CT.  Stoneledge Farm’s husband and wife owners Deborah and Pete Kavakos still work at the farm, which is now run by their son Pete Jr., his wife Candice and their newborn daughter Grace.

Why Join Our CSA?

Being a member of the Carnegie Hill CSA means being a part of a community of neighbors and friends.  We meet weekly to pick up our vegetables, share neighborhood news, recipes and have potluck gatherings.  We talk to the farmers who grow our food and take our kids (or just ourselves) to Stoneledge Farm Visits in the Catskills. Being a member is a commitment to healthy living right here in New York City.

Frequently Asked Questions

Give your share to a friend or neighbor. When they come, they should go to the member table and give your name. Let them know it’s BYOB (bring your own bag)! 

We need to be out of the space that the Church so graciously lends to us by 7:15PM. Therefore we must start closing down by 6:50PM. When you know that you will be late, please send a text by 6:40PM so we can bag your share of vegetables, so it will be there when you arrive.

Only if it’s listed on the swap list at the table. One member writes on the list what vegetable you are not taking. The next person sees on the list that they would prefer that vegetable so they will take an extra of an item on the list and then they leave a vegetable they will swap. 

The Fruit Share is fresh, local, seasonal, conventionally grown fruit from neighboring orchards and fruit farms.  Some of the berries are no-spray or organic depending on the crop. 

Unfortunately the answer is no. To become a member you need to purchase a vegetable share.

Once you become a member by purchasing a vegetable share you have options to add to your share.  You can get a weekly mushroom share, monthly coffee share and bean share from Stoneledge Farm.  You can order honey, maple syrup, seed oils and more.  Order online from the Lewis Waite Farm CSA Extra Network to obtain local organic eggs, cheeses, poultry and meats, seafood, local bread, soup mixes, and so much more!

Stoneledge Farm acts in good faith to provide CSA members with plentiful shares of fresh, local, organic produce for the CSA harvest season. Farming is dependent upon nature with no guarantee of quantities or contents of the CSA shares. By becoming a CSA member you are agreeing that these benefits and risks are included the CSA membership: a commitment to eating seasonally, supporting regional agriculture and a small family farm, your local community and to share the bounty of the harvest and well as the risk of production.
