Paisley Farm & Sweet Deliverance

Posted: May 24 2009

Living in NYC and still without a CSA?  And don't have time to cook?  This is a rad partnership between Severine's landlords, Paisley Farm, and Sweet Deliverance, a NYC-based company which transforms farm-fresh, organic ingredients into deliciously wholesome meals and then delivers them to your home.
Here's the skinny!
Paisley Farm is a 25-acre farm in Tivoli, NY where they have been growing organic specialty vegetables for 15 years. The farm is owned and operated by Michael Kokas and Jan Greer, and they farm with the help of their two children, Julian and Augusta. In addition to the great variety of vegetables they grow, Mike and Jan are known for the wild edibles they forage. In springtime, they gather ramps, fiddlehead ferns, and nettles.
Mike and Jan have been keeping the best chefs in Manhattan happy for two decades, and we are SO excited to work with them this year as they start up their new CSA!
Each week, on average, you will receive a variety of 7 - 10 items in your CSA and Sweet Deliverance will transform these veggies into delicious meals!
This spring our contract will begin with the 1st delivery on June 8th and end on November 16th 2009. You can choose to receive a delivery every week or every other week. Please read below for schedule and contract flexibility.
Preparation and delivery fees of $350, as well as the costs of any additions or dairy items purchased are due at the time of each delivery unless other arrangements have been made.
We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express & Discover as well as personal checks (payable to Sweet Deliverance) and cash. If paying by credit card we will charge your card the Sunday before delivery and provide you with a receipt.
Sweet Deliverance operates out of Brooklyn, New York and delivers to Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx!
