Rogowski Farm Vegetable Share

We are pleased to be working with The Rogowski Farm is the first Certified Naturally Grown farm in the Town of Warwick located in the “black dirt region” of Pine Island, in Orange County, NY.
Black Dirt is the name given to the dark, extremely fertile soil left over from an ancient glacial lake bottom.
Our farmer, Cheryl Rogowski, will strive to deliver a share of 8 to 10 varieties of vegetables per week. The amount of produce follows a bell curve.
Here are the types of crops grown on a steady basis and most likely to be included in a CSA Share:
Salad Greens
— various lettuces and other leafy greens suggested for eating raw
Cooking Greens
— such as kale, swiss chard, bok choi, collards & mustard greens
Root Vegetables
— such as beets, carrots, kohlrabi, turnips & potatoes
Herbs

Onion Crops
— such as scallions, leeks, cippolini, globe onions & limited garlic crops
Short-Season Crops

You may be surprised to learn that our farmer, Cheryl Rogowski, is the first farmer ever to win a MacArthur Fellowship, an extremely prestigious award.
