The Pound Ridge Organics Food CoOp model is simple. Every week throughout the year members are provided an order form which includes seasonally available organic food and products from local farms and artisans including: freshly harvested vegetables, herbs and fruit; pastured meat, free-range poultry and eggs; small batch cheeses; non-GMO grains and beans; preserves; baked goods; maple syrup; raw honey and locally produced gift items. The form allows members to check off their preferences and an estimated total is automatically calculated for them. Families can either pick up their order at Pound Ridge Organics or have it delivered to their door.
Through a strong alliance with local businesses; community groups; health and nutrition experts; farmers; beekeepers; and environmental leaders; Pound Ridge Organics offers skill-building, empowering workshops that not only address food and environment issues, but also provide an opportunity to meet and connect with other community members around these topics.
Autumn-Winter workshops include cooking classes using local ingredients and time-tested kitchen techniques to preserve seasonal foods so they can be enjoyed all year.
Pound Ridge Organics provides local seasonal organic produce, cheese, heritage eggs, meat, poultry, grains, preserves, maple syrup, raw honey and baked goods to The Hudson Valley, Westchester and Fairfield Counties every week of the year. Membership is free – ordering is free-choice. We are: Animal Welfare Approved; Certified by the A.S.P.C.A.; ServSafe Certified; and have taken the N.O.F.A. Farmer’s Pledge. Donna Simons, Chef, Educator and Founder, is also Chairman of Slow Food Metro North.
