Want a FRESH take on produce in Harlem?

Corbin Hill Farms supplies fresh produce where it is needed most. As a shareholder, you support local NY farmers and gain access to affordable, high-quality fruits and vegetables.

How does it work?Every Tuesday, seasonal fruits and vegetables fresh from the farm are delivered to pick-up sites in Harlem and the Bronx, such as at churches, schools, and community organizations. This local food is cheaper, more nutritious, more environmentally-friendly than produce shipped from around the world, and is largely grown organically.

Who can join?The farm share is open to everyone! It is designed to meet the needs of its shareholders (or members) by offering affordable prices, flexible membership terms, and items that reflect the diverse cultures of Harlem and the Bronx.

Can I choose what’s in my share?You cannot pick what produce you get because the shares are based on what is available in season. There is a “Swap Box” at every pick-up location, so you can switch an item that you don’t want for another one. You also get to hand-pick each fruit or veggie from the selection, so you can choose the juiciest tomato, or the biggest cabbage. New recipes are given out at every pick-up, so don’t worry if you don’t already know how to make a delicious meal out of every item you get!

How can I join?You can sign-up online or fill out a paper membership form. Shareholders pay one week in advance and can decide each week whether or not they want to their share. You can pay with cash, check, SNAP/EBT, or credit card. Northern Manhattan Perinatal Partnership (NMPP) hosts a pick-up site in Room 307 of the Dempsey Center at 127 W 127TH ST (between Lenox Ave & Adam Clayton Powell Blvd), every Tuesday, 12-3pm. Feel free to stop by during this time to check out how it works before you sign-up!
