There will be opportunities throughout the season for members to purchase fresh baked goods, organic chicken and olive oil. 

Members of the Millburn-Short Hills CSA will once again be supporting Starbrite Farms in Andover,  Breezy Hill Orchard in Staatsburg, N.Y. and  Knoll Krest Farm, Clinton Corners, N.Y.  

Millburn-Short Hills CSA members can purchase vegetable and fruit shares and add on egg and pasta shares - each with a different price.
