Red Jacket Orchard Winter CSA

Several days back I went out and answered questions for Red Jacket Orchards CSA in Carroll Gardens Brooklyn at The Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain.  Definitely worth checking out if you're ever in the 'hood.

I'm impressed with the quality of stuff this CSA peddles and they're going to extend for a winter run through December.  Here's the info:

Interested in getting farm fresh fruit at an affordable price? Would you like to support a local, family farm? These are two great reasons to sign up for a CSA! Through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), members pay a farm up front for share of produce that they can pick up from a distribution location once a week. The price they pay for this share is cheaper than purchasing the same quality of produce at a grocery store or farmers' market. At the same time, a CSA ensures a certain amount of revenue for the farm. By joining a CSA, members can also familiarize themselves with their farmer and the seasonality of local fruit.

Red Jacket Orchards is proud to announce a CSA for the winter season.  The winter fruit CSA will provide members with weekly shares of farm-fresh fruit from November til December.  Throughout the CSA winter season, Red Jacket Orchards harvests over 25 varieties of apples.  Winter shares will also feature our fresh pressed juices and our pantry items, such as Apple Butter, Apple Sauce, and various flavors of jams.

The Red Jacket Orchards CSA will have three distribution locations, which are listed below. Full and half shares are available. Full shares are priced at $17 per week and half shares are $10 per week.  To see a sample share list and for more information on how to sign up, visit or e-mail
