Sisters Hill Farm is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of New York.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farming model in which community members pledge support to the farm at the beginning of the season. In return, they pick up a share of the harvest every week. In this way, the growers and members provide mutual support in their food production, thereby creating a true community farm.
Both partners share in the risks and rewards of small-scale farming: weather, insect damage, and fantastic tasting veggies. CSA restores the lost connection between people and agriculture by providing an opportunity for members to be directly connected to how their food is grown. It's about more than just vegetables!
