Searching for New Site Hosts For Our Summer '13 CSA

While our produce has slowed down, we have been keeping busy working on plans for next season--and our top priority--the CSA.  We made a lot of changes and experienced a lot of growth last year, and we are hoping to do it again this year.  One of the biggest ways we were able to grow and reach more people, was adding lots of new site hosts--and right now we are reaching out to do it again.

While we might know a lot about produce, we don't always know enough about certain areas to know where the best site hosts might be--so we are asking for your help.  Below is a list of neighborhoods where we are hoping to send our farm-shares next season.  If you know of any place that could be a good host in any of these areas, please send an email to, we would love to hear from you!

In no particular order:
  • Erie
  • Edinboro
  • Butler
  • Slippery Rock
  • Grove City
  • Cranberry Twp
  • Mars/Seven Fields
  • Greenfield (Pittsburgh)
  • North Squirrel Hill (Pittsburgh)
  • Shadyside (Pittsburgh)
  • North Oakland (Pittsburgh)
  • Edgewood/Swissvale
  • Regent Square/Wilkinsburg
  • Monroeville
  • Oakmont
  • Fox Chapel
  • Allison Park
  • McCandless
  • North Hills
  • Ross
  • Shaler
  • Sewickley
We have site hosts that are people's front porches, churches, natural food stores, coffee shops, office buildings, farm markets, and even a chocolate shop and a wellness center--so almost anywhere can work--just let us know where you think would work best.

We are adding sites to 2 of our routes, changing another delivery route to end at our farms instead of in Pittsburgh, and freeing up a truck to add a whole new route to accomplish this.  We are still working out the details of these routes, and while we are interested in adding sites in all these neighborhoods, we will probably end up adding some extras and leaving some out.
