Wanted: Apprentices for 2017 Season

The CSG is seeking apprentices for the 2017 season (April to mid-November). Our 300+ member CSA biodynamically manages more than 125 acres of farmland (under Farmland Preservation) in northwestern New Jersey near the Delaware Water Gap. There are 20 acres in vegetable production, 4 acres in grain, 3.5 acres of orchards and berries and the remainder in meadows. All produce is distributed through a community supported agriculture program.

Applicants should be seeking a hands-on learning experience on a production-oriented farm. We offer apprentices their own room, board, stipend, shared lunches, educational opportunities and involvement in garden festivals in exchange for up to 50 hours of work per week. Apprenticeship housing is in a farmhouse on the farm. It is recommended that applicants visit the farm to evaluate the suitability of the position.

Email a resume and a letter outlining goals and interests in agriculture to Judy von Handorf at csgardeninfo@gmail.com

When Saying ‘Thank You’ Is Simply Not Enough

After nearly three decades, Bill Gold has stepped down from the governing body of the Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm.

Dear Bill,

When we sat down to discuss your profound contributions to the Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm, it immediately became clear just how deep your connection is to this place and how much of yourself you have poured into it. You have been one of the true champions of the farm, of healthy eating, of caring for the earth, and of environmental activism. You have been a tireless cheerleader of our mission and a faithful and diligent chairman of the board. Your kindness, knowledge, enthusiasm, and humor will be sorely missed.  Read more . . .

The Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm is legendary and world-renowned.

True to the pure CSA model.

One of the first in the country.

Our community shares with the farmers the bounty AND the risk of producing our food.

Pure, clean, delicious, nutritious food grown with biodynamic principles and lots of love — and without chemicals.

You don’t just join a CSA when you join our farm; you join our family.

CSA since 1988: 28 Years and Still Growing . . .

Since 1988, the Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm has provided an opportunity for a community of people to take responsibility for supporting a farm. While sharing the abundance and the costs of cultivating our food in a healthy way, we are also increasing the fertility of the soil and enhancing the quality of our relationships to the land and to each other.
