CSA looking for ideas for distribution spot in Brooklyn

Hi!

We are a small farm in Upstate NY that currently distributes a handcrafted fresh pork and charcuterie CSA in Williamsburg to about 50 CSA members.

Unfortunately our current distribution location doesn't have room for us for the Summer CSA season......

Does anyone have any suggestions for a bar, restaurant, etc. that would be up for having us hand out shares for a few hours every other Thursday? Hopefully it would bring people into their business and be a good thing for them too:)

Thanks in advance for helping us find a new home:)

  • Are you still looking for a place?

    I'm not sure if this would be right for you, but the Greenpoint-WIlliamsburg CSA does distribution at the Chuch of the Messiah at 129 Russell St in Greenpoint. Perhaps the same church would be abl to provide a space for you.

    Hope this helps!

    Buy a share in a pork CSA and enjoy pastured meat all season long.
    By Jessie Cacciola

    The past year’s glut of swine-worshipping eateries has proved that pork lust is a-okay. We long for the pink stuff: pit-roasted, pan-seared, braised or fried to a crisp. Those ready to commit to a summer of pig love, take note: A new CSA can keep you in meat all season long. Reserve a whole, half or quarter hog from the Piggery farm in Tompkins County, New York, where heritage breeding and long-season grazing on barley, field peas and walnut trees make for seriously marbled meat. From June 10 through November, a weekly delivery (or biweekly, your choice) will include three- to six-pound bundles—depending on share size—that come with a portion for dinner (sirloin, shoulder, sausages) and sliced meats (like bacon), plus homemade charcuterie such as pork-jowl confit. Up-front or monthly payments will lock in your order, with four pickup spots to choose from in Manhattan (Jimmy’s No. 43, Green Spaces) and Brooklyn (Bierkraft, d.b.a. Brooklyn). At an average of $36 a week it’s an investment—but cookout bragging rights don’t come cheap. To view delivery schedules and to sign up, visit thepiggery.net; quarter hog $336, half hog $672, whole hog $1,272.
