Hawthorne Valley Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) site in Riverdale, NYC was recently featured in an article about New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson’s initiative to map Farm-to-City food locations.
According to the article in The Riverdale Press, the project’s goal is “to make it easier for those craving kale, squash, apples and grapes to bite into the freshest available..Johnson believes many don’t even know there are actually more than 300 locations citywide where they can stock up on food of this caliber, but his map allows users to learn more about each.”

Hawthorne Valley Farm has been sending fresh farm produce, meats, and artisan products to New York City since the 1970s as a founding member of GrowNYC’s greenmarket. The farm later expanded its offerings to include CSA pickup locations at three sites throughout the boroughs.
“We agree with Speaker Johnson that access to fresh and healthy food is a human right,” said Martin Ping, Hawthorne Valley executive director. “We are honored to be one of the many New York farms that have played a part in bringing such food to the city for the last several decades.”
