All the Fresh Veggies, None of the Commitment

Astoria welcomes a new, exciting CSA to town! Holton Farms, from Southeastern VT, has lots of tasty produce and other farmy items. But they also have some innovation going on. I hear it all the time... "I'd love to do a CSA, but it's too much commitment!" Yeah, it really can be for a big city gal. Off the the Hampties or a film festival, or even brunch (!) and then it's "oh crap, my veggies!". Not so with Holton Farms who will let you buy "what you want, when you want". (You can do a more traditional CSA plan with them, too.)

Catch their truck at Steinway & 35th Ave from 9 to 10am on Sundays. and check out their website, for more info and sign ups. Plus, JIA readers can use the discount code HFASTORIA for 5% off CSA Memberships!

Thank you so much for posting this. I never joined a CSA because I was always thinking I would need to rush home from work for a pick-up. I thought I would probably miss them more than I would make them. This is perfect and right near my house. Thank you for the information! Can't wait to check it ou

I read about it here and joined using the JIA code and picked up my first order this morning. I wanted to comment to let others know what I thought of it. The veggies were fresh and tasty as was the ice cream. Looking forward to trying the cheese and grass-fed beef in my order. The people at the truck were really friendly. I hope they do well as the concept of choosing what you want and which weeks is great. They rollover the credits if you join next year and don't use them all, you can increment your amount and they run through end of November with Thanksgiving turkeys. Thanks for the post.
