Special Announcement

The Schoharie River Center and Fox Creek Farm CSA in Gallupville are excited to announce a special partnership.  Your Schoharie River Center Membership entitles you to a 10% discount of a CSA share!  


Fox Creek Farm CSA in Gallupville grows high quality produce sing organic farming practices. For the last 13 years, Raymond and Sara Luhrman have been fine-tuning their farming skills and crop selection to address the needs of a broad community of farm supporters – growing from 10 CSA members in 2003, to well over 400 members right now. The farm is probably one of the better kept secrets in the town of Wright: located at the end of a half-mile private driveway, the woods give way to the open farm fields.

CSA members don’t only get to share in the abundant seasonal harvests, but also get to enjoy the vistas at the farm, the CSA member U-pick garden with culinary herbs, flowers, and a wide selection of cherry tomatoes. Joining the CSA is easy: just visit their website (www.foxcreekfarmcsa.com) for more information.
