Hamden County's first and only USDA Certified Organic Farm & CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, Yellow Stonehouse Farm is a historic 79 acre property located in both Westfield & Southampton MA surrounded by a Natural Heritage & Endangered Species Landscape. From April to December, YSF cultivates over 17 acres of certified organic vegetables and flowers for their CSA shareholders - using season extending techniques in their high tunnels as well as organic farming practices. Distributed in a market style CSA pick-up area, members chose their own share from the freshly harvested vegetables and field fruits. There are several different types of shares to accommodate different family sizes and needs, and all memberships include Pick-Your-Own vegetables, flowers and herbs. Every share provides recipes, culinary herbs and aromatics such as garlic, ginger, horseradish, and turmeric, plus a diverse selection of vegetables and field fruits including native varieties such as husk cherries and sun-chokes, sized to feed a family of four. CSA membership is limited to no more than 200 for three seasonal shares: Spring/Summer, Harvest & Winter. Prices vary from $295 to $760 depending on share type and season. YSF also has an on-farm market that is open to the public during the growing season and offers a variety of seasonal produce as well as a curated selection of organic and local products such honey, maple syrup, mustards and pickles. The farm also offers a "Freshness and Wellness in the Workplace" for interested companies.
