What We Do

The Hudson Valley CSA Coalition is a network of more than 120 farms in New York’s Hudson Valley region who use the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) economic model. Through a series of strategic initiatives, our mission is to recruit first-time CSA members; to expand the local CSA member base of participating farms; and to make CSA a familiar and accessible option for everyone in the Hudson Valley.


The Hudson Valley CSA Coalition is facilitated by the Glynwood Center for Regional Food and Farming in Cold Spring, NY, and takes inspiration from Wisconsin’s FairShare CSA Coalition.  


Core Initiatives 

  • Helping consumers find CSA farms near them

  • Increasing the accessibility of CSA shares for SNAP users through CSA is a SNAP

  • Providing educational resources to help CSA members use every last bit of their share

  • Working with regional publications and other partners to promote CSA every spring

  • Sharing resources with member farms and organizing an annual CSA Summit

  • Along with key partners, developing a national CSA network to provide robust resource-sharing, trainings and discussions for CSA practitioners and advocates

CSA Innovation Network

The CSA Innovation Network is a national community of practice comprised of farmers and farmer support organizations dedicated to unifying and strengthening the CSA movement. The CSA Innovation Network is led by a core planning and advising team (including the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition) and has expanded to include individuals and organizations who are passionate about supporting the advancement of CSA.


Community supported agriculture (CSA) has been rapidly evolving in recent years. With so many options for consumers to eat locally, many CSA farmers have been struggling to maintain and expand their market. In response, the CSA Innovation Network serves as a resource base of programs and tools that facilitate idea-sharing and support the national movement toward stronger local food systems.
