CSA & Buying Club Update
CSA membership is full for the year. If you are interested, we can put you on our 2015 Waiting List.
In the meantime, come visit our Buying Club/Farm Stand and see what we are about and what we have available. If you are interested in our Buying Club, an application is also available on the bottom of this page or visit us at the farm during our business hours. Buying Club membership is open for new members throughout the year.
Please feel free to contact us about our farm stand/buying club or to order garlic vinegar. We officially open our farm stand on Saturday, May 3 and Friday, May 2 and will be open every Friday and Saturday until December 20. We will then re-open after New Years. The farm stand/buying club is located at 6514 Cherry Valley Rd., Stroudsburg, PA .
Last year we diversified our farm operation to include a "Buying Club" at our on-site farm stand. The Josie Porter Farm is actively working with a number of other small family farms, who share our values, within our regional "foodshed" to insure the highest quality and widest variety of organically grown fruits and vegetables in our "Buying Club" and within the weekly CSA share. Variety and choice has been expanded through this collaboration and augments our notion of providing a local food hub for one-stop healthy, sustainable food shopping. We will be offering locally and regionally sourced: honey, maple syrup, meat, eggs, cheese, breads, wild caught Alaskan salmon and more! Click here for information about the Buying Club.
The foremost program of the Josie Porter Farm is the Cherry Valley CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) operation which provides a weekly share of produce to at least 125 families in the local community. Click herefor more information about the CSA.
If you are interested in our new Buying Club, applications are available on our website. Cherry Valley CSA and the JPF Buying Club are programs of the Josie Porter Farm.
We are located eight minutes south of Stroudsburg in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and offer families an opportunity to partake in fresh, locally grown and organically managed produce. Families who participate in the farm support the cost of raising these delicious vegetables, and help maintain the environmental and scenic quality of the beautiful Cherry Valley area of the Pocono Mountains. The local community of shareholders and members becomes connected with and mindful of the real needs of our Earth, the Valley, and this farm.
