April News from Added Value Farms!

Registration is open for the Red Hook CSA, Added Value's community farm-share program. Buy a weekly share of produce grown right here on the farm! Last year we provided over 60 families with a plethora of kale, peppers, eggplant, root veggies, zukes, cukes, and more. We also contract with a local supplier to offer fruit, cheese, and eggs with your weekly share. Check our CSA page or email for more info. Cut your carbon footprint and support local farms!
How far did that tomato travel to get to your plate?
Let's take a moment to give thanks and celebrate the work of Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez, organizers of the United Farm Workers, on whose great shoulders we rest. March 31 marked Cesar Chavez Day, the late activist's birthday. We honor not only those who grow and harvest in the fields, but also those who fight for fair wages, safe working conditions, and dignity in employment for all who bring food to our tables! Pa'lante!
Dolores y Cesar, la lucha sigue!
Are you an artisanal chocolatier or a fermentation aficionado? Do you make a killer salsa or a smokin' hot sauce? We are currently seeking local vendors to join our weekly Saturday farmers market, June 18 to November 19. Test new products, expand your market, and get your goodies out there to the people! We also invite neighborhood organizations to table and promote their Red Hook programs and events. Contact for more info.

Step away from that desk and get some dirt under your nails! We are delighted to host volunteer groups from businesses across the city organizing service days to give back to the community. These eager groups of volunteers - as small as 8 and as large as 90 - bring much needed energy, sweat, and can-do spirit to help with major farm projects. Get in touch if you'd like to organize a volunteer day on the farm with your organization, spring through fall.
