Riverdale Press Features Hawthorne Valley CSA

The Riverdale Press in New York City takes a look at our Riverdale CSA, now in its 20th year of operation. One of Hawthorne Valley’s four CSA locations, Riverdale’s 63 members enjoy fresh produce from the farm from June to November.

Riverdale Press reporter Daniel Ynfante spoke with Annette Diiorio, who joined the Riverdale CSA as a member in winter 2014, but already had experienced the Inwood CSA last summer, the results of the organization are tangible. “I think that I’m eating a lot more fruits and vegetables,” she said. “I try a lot of things like kohlrabi, which I had no idea what to do with before and now I know all about it, and I love it.
