RISE Farm Share

RISE Farm Share's mission is to bring fresh, locally grown organic produce at an affordable price directly from the farm to the Rockaway community.

Eat Fresh. Eat Affordable. Eat Healthy.

RISE Farm Share is the only mixed-income, community-supported agriculture (CSA) serving the Rockaway peninsula. Distribution takes place every Wednesday, from June 5  to November 13, 2024, 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at RISE, 58-03 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Far Rockaway, NY 11692.

What is it?
RISE Farm Share is a 24-week membership subscription to a "share" of locally grown vegetables. Members sign up ahead of time to receive fresh produce every Wednesday. Our farmer,  Sang Lee Farms, is family-owned and operated and certified organic and delivers produce directly to our door each week for Rockaway residents.

Share options are full season commitments (June to November).

- Standard Share is the same price we pay the farmer.
- Affordable Share is a 50 percent reduced price for low-income residents who are eligible for SNAP.
    $15 per week must be paid for using SNAP benefits at pickup.
  *$40 advance deposit is required to reserve Affordable Share.

What about options for fresh, locally grown fruit?
We offer a fruit share through Briermere Farms. For $180, you will get either one pint or one bag of berries, peaches, apples, and/or pears for eighteen weeks.
