New CSA: Giving Ground Farm 2014

Giving Ground Farm Family
Announcement from Giving Ground Farm:

My name is Betti Lambro. My husband, Joe, and I and our two young boys, Finnegan (5) and Oliver (20 months) have a small local farm, Giving Ground Farm, and we operate a small CSA.

We are located just four miles west of Trumansburg. 2014 will be our third farming season here (though we began farming over ten years ago). We will have on-farm CSA pick up on tuesdays from 3-7, and at the Ithaca East Hill farmers market on wednesdays from 4-7, one day a week (TBA) at Dragon Village in Trumansburg, and if we are able to get into the Trumansburg Farmers Market we would also offer pick up there on Wednesdays from 4-7.

Our 2014 season will run for 20 weeks from mid June to the end of October. We offer a half share for $275.00 (one full bag) and a whole share for $500.00 (two full bags).

Early in the season we usually have about six different veggies available at a time, and that increases to ten to twelve different veggies per week. At the market, members choose which items to take home rather than being given a pre-packed box.

Our 2014 egg share consists of one dozen eggs each week for the twenty weeks at $4.00 per dozen for a total of $80.00 per egg share. You can buy multiple egg shares to meet your needs.

In January we will have grass fed ground beef available from our rare, triple-breed cattle, American Milking Devons. We are selling it at $5.00 per pound and are taking bulk orders which need to be picked up the day (TBA) we get it frozen from the butcher.

In the fall of 2014 we will have beef available as cuts or by the whole, half or quarter. We might also have pork available but are not yet sure.

Our long term goal is to grow into more of a full-diet CSA and provide vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, and dairy.

Please email or call us with any questions. We anticipate being able to serve the equivalent of 40-50 whole shares.

Please let other folks know about us too! We don't yet have a web site, so the best way to reach us is by email: or phone : 607-279-9888.
