Katchkie Farm

Benefits Package: Sign up for a Workplace CSA Now

The owners of Great Performances and Katchkie Farm–the Manhattan catering company and not-for-profit upstate agriculture center we wrote about last year–are launching a workplace CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program for those who work too late to hit their neighborhood pickups, and the sign-up season is starting now. All you have to do is get 20 co-workers to sign up and they’ll create a pick up site at your office. For more information call 212.727.2424 and ask for Brooke or send an email to [email protected] You can sign up for a regular non-office CSA at one of their four other Manhattan pick up locations.

On Sept. 27, Sothebys Puts Heirloom Kale, Squash and Cabbage up for Auction at The Art of Farming

By all accounts, the first-ever live auction of Tri-state heirloom vegetables (and a few proteins) at the house of Sothebys last year was a smashing success. Farmers mingled with the city’s fabulous; local crops were put on the block; and the proceeds went to help support agriculture and education programs with GrowNYC and The Sylvia Center.
