The Turtle Bay CSA is a group of Manhattan-based consumers partnering with an upstate New York farm to bring fresh, organic produce and other farm products to our members at affordable prices while supporting local, sustainable farming practices.  All participants contribute their time in some way to support this farm-to-customer distribution channel.

Our farm partner, Free Bird Farm, is a diversified and certified organic farm located in Upstate NY’s Mohawk Valley.

The Turtle Bay CSA distributes on Tuesdays from 5-8PM at the Vanderbilt YMCA, located at 224 East 47th St. btwn 2nd and 3rd Aves. Our season is 22 weeks long and we expect our 2019 season to run from June 4th through November 5th (start date is dependent on spring weather) with the week of September 16th off due to the UN General Assembly.  Each shareholder is responsible for working one 2-hour shift at distribution over the course of the season.

Beware of “Fake CSA’s!”
