Central Brooklyn CSA

1256 Dean Street

Our CSA's mission is to "make fresh, sustainable produce, direct from the farmer available and accessible to any Central Brooklyn resident, regardless of economic status."

Each member receives a "share" of vegetables every week: a full share will feed 3-4 people; a half-share will feed 1-2 people and is picked up bi-weekly. To ensure that our shares are affordable for everyone, we offer flexible payment options for low-income households, plus you can use your SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) benefits to purchase shares.

Our farm partner is El Mirador Farm in Hazlet, New Jersey. El Mirador's owner, Victor Pavia, is a graduate of the New Farmer Development Project of GrowNYC.
