The Mayor and Environmental Department are working with School Lunch Organic Farm to continue to bring a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to Secaucus.
What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture is a growing national trend for families looking for healthy eating alternatives while supporting local farmers and earth-friendly farming practices. CSA members sign up and pay for shares in advance, enabling the farmer to buy the necessary seeds and equipment and to carefully plan for the upcoming season.
How does it work?
Produce shares are delivered weekly to the Secaucus Public Library at 1379 Paterson Plank Road for pickup by resident members - delivering fresh, seasonal, organically-grown produce for 16 weeks. Buying a share for the season is a convenient way to ensure a steady supply of fresh, healthy produce at a great value for your family.
Why School Lunch Organic Farm & CSA?
School Lunch Farm, located in Hackettstown, helped found our Secaucus CSA program in 2016 and continue to be a proud partner. Mayor Gonnelli himself visited the farm, and they welcome all CSA members to visit!
About the farm:
School Lunch Farm & CSA is a 100% Certified Organic and GMO-Free Farm offering a weekly share of organic produce. We offer over 200 varieties of organic vegetables, fruit, flowers, and herbs with 10-18 types of produce available on any given week. All of our produce is grown from seed on our farm; we do not purchase produce from other farms or food distributors. Your share is harvested the day you pick it up—so your veggies are super fresh. Shareholders are welcome to volunteer at the farm, visit our farm, and attend special events.
