WHAT IS A CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a cooperative agreement between a farmer and a group of people who agree to pre-purchase a share of the farmer’s produce for an entire season. The CSA gives members access to fresh, local, sustainably grown produce at competitive prices while helping to preserve farmland and build community.
WHAT IS A HAZON CSA?

It provides a platform to engage the Jewish and non-Jewish community and offer innovative educational and community-building programs around food.
ABOUT PRI HAEMEK
Pri HaEmek is Hebrew for Bounty of the Valley. It is a not-for-profit CSA that is about more than buying local, sustainably grown produce that tastes great. It is also about community in the Mid-Hudson Valley. The CSA is grounded in Jewish values concerning the environment, but is open to anyone. Throughout the year there will be programming around food issues and holidays.
Being concerned about community, each year our CSA will grant some charity shares provided through the membership fee and donations.
Pri HaEmek is run by its shareholders. They participate in many ways to make this a successful CSA.
ABOUT OUR FARMERS
Pri HaEmek is partnering with Lineage Farm in Hudson. Each week shareholders will choose from a variety of vegetables.
