NYC Apartment Buildings Receive Exclusive Farm-To-Table Deliveries

Community supported agriculture goes straight from the farm to your front door.

In an effort to promote healthier lifestyles among its residents, the Albanese Organization, a NYC Real Estate Development and Management company, is offering an exclusive farm-to-table delivery service at three of its buildings located in Battery Park City.  Buildings residents who sign up for the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) membership, receive weekly deliveries from Vermont-based Holton Farms, that range from seasonal fruit and vegetables to fresh dairy and meat, depending on commitment level. Unlike others CSAs where members receive items pre-selected by the farm, Holton provides their customers with the ability to customize their orders each week through an online portal with products from both their own and neighboring farms. In addition, the farm’s mobile truck sets up shop outside the buildings on weekends, offering a curbside farmer’s stand for the community.
