Farmers & Products
Brooklyn Beet CSA
Our successful 2016 season is underway, thanks to all those who are a part of it! Please read more below to learn about our farmers, bread baker, and Lewis Waite partnership!
Angel Family Farm - our vegetable farmer located in Orange County, New York.
Wilklow Orchards - our fruit farmer (new to Brooklyn Beet for 2016) located near Poughkeepsie.
Wild Mountain Bread - our local bread baker located right here in Brooklyn.
Our local bread baker Iris offers artisan bread from a sourdough starter. Baked each Tuesday morning, the loaves arrive at the distribution warm and fresh from the oven. Instead of using only white flour, she uses a mixture of many grains, which is as nutritious as it is tasty.
Lewis Waite Farms - partners with small, family-run farms to offer our members meat, eggs, dairy products, coffee, and more.
Lewis Waite Farm CSA Extras program strives to connect small farms and producers to consumers within their region. They offer a single platform for you to gain access to a wide variety of farm fresh, all natural, artisanal, and organic products. They partner with small, family run operations. If you have questions, they can ask the person who grew or made your food. Their producers take great pride in their products, and they take pride in offering them to you. Orders are placed via their online platform. You pay as you go, and order only what you want. Free delivery to Brooklyn Beet CSA members on A weeks alongside your vegetable distribution!
Lewis Waite Farm CSA Extras can offer you pasture raised meat and poultry (10 kinds of meat), fresh eggs and bread, grass fed butter, yogurt and ice cream, artisan cheese from sheep, goat or cows’ milk, including aged raw milk cheeses. They offer many pantry staples, too, all local and naturally made: granola, fresh stone-ground organic flour, dried organic beans and grains, natural jams and chutneys, natural sweeteners, locally roasted organic coffee, apple cider vinegar, and more. You can see a complete list on their website, www.csalewiswaitefarm.com.
