From Farm & Fork Society:
Farm & Fork Society, a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture group), is currently signing up members for the 2018 season. Serving residents of Millburn-Short Hills, Maplewood-South Orange, Summit, Livingston, West Orange and other surrounding towns, Farm & Fork Society offers vegetables, fruit, poultry, farm fresh eggs, pasta, cider, and mushrooms. New this season is a microgreens share from Coeur del Sol Urban Farm and a bread share from Apple Ridge Farm. The seasonal produce comes directly from the farmer and is picked up every Wednesday from June 6 through November 14 in downtown Millburn.
For 11 years, Farm & Fork Society has been dedicated to building a community comprised of their farmer and members who pre-purchase shares of organic/sustainable crops on an seasonal basis. Started in 2008 by Melissa Goldberg of Short Hills, NJ after she and a gathering of local citizens got together with a common goal: to provide their families with healthy organic/sustainably grown produce sourced from local farmers.
Farm & Fork Society believes in a system that connects small local farms and businesses directly to the community. The group is dedicated to the health of its members and supporting best environmental practices and all farmers’ partners pursue farming practices that are environmentally sustainable. Produce is either certified organic, organic stewardship, eco-farmed or sustainably grown. Animals products are raised without antibiotics and hormones and the farmers can trace back all the materials they use in their farming.
Members of the Farm & Fork Society can purchase shares from Circle Brook Farm, Andover, NJ, Breezy Hill Orchard, Staatsburg, New York, Knoll Krest Farm, Clinton Corners, NY, The Foraged Feast, Maplewood, NJ, Coeur del Sol Urban Farm, East Orange, NJ, Apple Ridge Farm, Saylorsburg, PA, and River Bend Farm, Peapack, NJ.
Members are encouraged to meet the farmers, visit the farms and see for themselves where their food comes from. The group continues to support the campaign Generation Zero: Working to Reduce Hunger in New Jersey. This program provides fresh produce from our farmers directly to local food banks.
Prospective members can go to the group’s website to find out more detail on the shares offered, pricing, members commitment and to sign up. The final deadline for membership is May 18, 2018.
