Organic Farm Stand

Pick up your organic produce, grown locally at the YMCA's Cedar Glen farm!

Organic vegetables

YMCA Cedar Glen Organic Farm, located in Schomberg, grows over 60 kinds of crops including lettuce, onions, tomatoes, kale, beets, and basil. Every summer, we bring our fresh produce to your doorstep through our Farm Stands. Starting on August 12th and ending on October 7th, stop by the Cooper Koo YMCA on Saturdays between 9:00 am – 12:00 noon to peruse our selection and take home some fresh veggies! You can also sign up for our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.

What is Community Support Agriculture? 

Our CSA program members get first pick of the fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs grown locally at the YMCA Cedar Glen Organic Farm. Here's how it works:

  • Every week from August 12th – October 7th, we'll send you a list of produce available from our farm. You choose what you want to eat, we bring it downtown for you, and you stop by the Cooper Koo YMCA on Saturdays between 9:00 am – 12:00 noon to pick it up.
  • You'll get to choose from different options each week, including lettuce, kale, chard, spinach, arugula, beets, carrots, onions, radishes, turnips, tomatoes, beans, peppers, squash, peas, zucchini, pumpkin, parsley, dill, cilantro, basil, thyme, and sage.
  • Just by getting a CSA membership, you're supporting community agriculture and helping an organic, local farm flourish.
  • You're also helping educate youth about where their food comes from. In July and August, the YMCA Cedar Glen Organic Farm is home to our farm camp, where kids ages 9–12 learn how food grows, what happens to it after it's harvested, and what organic produce means for their health.

To sign up for your CSA membership, or get answers to any questions about it, e-mail Melisanne.
