It's easy to forget that the CSA share you pick up every week in the city comes from a rural, grassy, no-taxis-in-sight farm. In some cases, it's just an hour or two away... Farms in upstate New York, Long Island, Connecticut, and New Jersey that deliver to New York City welcome visitors. You can show up and meet the farmers, help out for a day, pick your own produce, or take a tour. The photos above are from the Golden Earthworm Organic Farm in Jamesport, NY, which hosts a CSA tour day.
Talk to the site coordinators at your CSA pickup and ask about visiting the farm — or check out Just Food's CSA page for a listing of farms in the area.
