FARMER APPLICATION TIMELINE
The following is the general timeline for working with our CSA in NYC and Fresh Food for All Programs. The dates below are very flexible. We will work with farmers to accommodate their schedules.
Winter/Early Spring – Fill out our application [ Word document or PDF ] for the following farming season. Return the application to Jessica Cortes by email at farmeroutreach[at]justfood[dot]org, by fax 212.645.9881 or by mail at Just Food, 1155 Avenue of the Americas, Ste. 311, New York, NY 10036
Spring/Early Summer – Just Food staff will review the applications. We will call each farmer to give an overview of Just Food’s role and to answer any questions.
Summer – Applications are sent to two members of our Farmer Advisory Committee (FAC) for review. The FAC is made up of Just Food CSA farmers, Fresh Food for All farmers, and Cornell Cooperative extension agents.
Late Summer/Early Fall – Just Food staff plus two FAC members will briefly visit your farm to meet in person, answer any more questions, and ask any questions we have about how to best work together.
Winter – Just Food will match farms with CSA groups and Emergency Food Providers (Fresh Food for All). Farmers will meet with either their CSA groups or Emergency Food Providers to discuss the upcoming season.
