Sang Lee Farms is a second generation family farm originally growing produce for the Asian markets in New York and along the east coast.

Over the last fifteen years the farm has shifted its focus to retail, farmers' markets and community supported agriculture. In doing so it has added many new specialty vegetable and herb products, including heirloom tomatoes, multicolored carrots, asparagus, potatoes and garlic.

To compliment all this wonderful produce the farm has developed its own full line of prepared foods. Dressings, dips, pestos, pickled products, jellies, and cooking sauces are now available, and are featured whenever Sang Lee Farms hosts special events and tastings.

CSA INFO

What is a CSA? What does a Sang LeeFarms CSA include?

What is a CSA?

CSA, short for Community Supported Agriculture, is an arrangement between members of a community and a farm.  It is a pre-paid share of fresh, organically grown vegetables that members receive on a prearranged schedule for their fees. Members agree to allow the farmer to select and provide the produce for the box, with an understanding that the farmer will offer the best available.  Members also understand there is some risk involved in farming and agree to accept that risk with the possibility that there may be variability in what can be given to them.  

What are the benefits to a CSA?

CSA programs are beneficial to both the farm and the CSA member.  Memberships help support the farm with its early revenues so that start up costs for purchases of fertilizer, seeds and other supplies can be made. Having a set membership number also allows the farmer to plan what he has to grow and to get the crops started early.  

For the members of the CSA, there are many benefits.  Share members help preserve open space, support the continuation of a viable, working farm, and reduce their individual carbon foot print by having less vegetables trucked in from distant areas.  Members come to know who grows their food, become more aware of how it is grown, and come to understand the seasonality of produce.  The best benefit is of course simply enjoying the fresh, delicious, local vegetables. 

What will I get as a Sang Lee Farms CSA member?  

Each week you will receive a box (
 1/2 to 1 Bu. box )  of fresh certified organic vegetables.  We have 2 size boxes, a FULL and a PARTIAL

Items may be the same in the full and partial boxes, and at other times items may be different.  We will always distribute the variety of produce we have available to both full and partial shares somewhere over the course of the season.  We grown over 100 different varieties of vegetables, so there is plenty of opportunity for variation.  

Our best efforts will always be to maximize the value of your weekly share.  Excluding any major inclement weather issue, our pledge is to provide you with an abundant weekly supply of delicious Certified Organic  "Fresh-Lee-Cut"@   vegetables in a mix and variety that will please you. We hope to continue to expand the variety of vegetables we offer.    

 Additional CSA Programs Once you are a vegetable share member you may join our other CSA programs.  We have joined with other local farmers to bring you additional products.  These include:  Fruit from Briermere Farms; Cheese from Catapano Dairy, Mecox Dairy and Harperfield Farm;  Eggs from North Fork Egg Farm and Young Widows Farm; and Peconic Pearl Oysters from the Noank Cooperative.When does this start?  When does it finish?

START DATE:  End of May

END DATE:  Just before Thanksgiving

The CSA is a 26 week program.  CSA memberships will be granted on a first come basis for the season.  We may also limit the numberof CSA shares depending on the number of memberships received.  The deadline for registration is May 1st.

Where do I pick up my weekly share?

FARM PICKUP  Pickup will be at the farm in our barn.  Members can go there directly to get their box.  Families on vacation or unable to pickup their share on a particular day can have others, such as a neighbor or friend,  pick up their share at the farm.  

FARMER MARKET PICKUP  Pickups can also be made at the Westhampton Beach Farmer's Market, the Northport Farmers Market or the East Hampton Farmer's Market only while those markets are operating.  Since the CSA share schedule extends ahead of and after the operation of some of the Farmer's Markets by a couple of weeks, the members normally picking their shares up from those markets will have to come to the farm to pick up their shares on those weeks that the market is not in operation.  This arrangement of picking up CSA shares at a picticular Farmer's market is by prior arrangement only.  Members can not switch back and forth for their pickup arrangements by week.

East Hampton Market - Fridays 9:00 - 1:00  2012 dates  TBD

West Hampton Beach Market - Saturdays  9:00 - 1:00  2012 dates TBD

Northport Market - Saturdays  9:00 - 1:00  2012 dates TBD

Jericho LIE Exit 41:  pickups are at the Jericho Kosher Deli located off exit 41 in the Whole Foods Supermarket Shopping Plaza  Tuesdays  2:00 - 6:00 

Pick up times are determined annually.

Possible New CSA Drop Sites

If groups of (50) members/families or more can designate a particular site away from the farm, delivery options can be considered.  We will look at the options to facilitate efficiencies in distributing the weekly shares to certain neighborhoods depending on the distances of those groups from our farm in Peconic.

What happens to my box if I don't pick it up?

Your box will be given away to a family of need or donated to a local Food Pantry.  During the past  CSA seasons, we made many donations to individuals and families, CAST of Greenport and North Fork Parish Outreach. 

 During the 2010 season we donated 115 FULL SHARES and 121 PARTIAL SHARES.
