Mother of All CSAs

With all the talk about CSAs this time of year and the Paisley Farm CSA Seed Party at Jimmy's No. 43., I want to give a shout out to Jacquie Berger from Just Food. The mother of all CSAs?

Paisley Farm CSA Seed Party, April 8

Paisley Farm in Tivoli, NY is launching a new CSA in New York City- at Jimmy's No. 43!

What's a CSA? CSA is short for "Community Supported Agriculture". Members pay up front for a share in a farm's production which literally helps provide "seed money" to get the growing season started. The lucky folks that join at Jimmy's No. 43 will also benefit from a unique service - in addition to being experienced organic farmers, the people at Paisley Farm also run a regional distribution company called Upstate Farms that has been serving New York City's best chefs for nearly 20 years. CSA members who commit to a season of produce from Paisley will also be able to add weekly additions of fruits, dairy, eggs, and poultry from the other local farms in their network.

You can sign up now by visiting the website and completing the sign-up form, or attend our SEED PARTY on Wednesday, April 8th, 7:30 - 9:00 at Jimmy's No. 43!
