Looking to save some “thyme” and still put healthy food on the table? Become a member of Stokes Farm’s Thyme Saver CSA program! Each week, we’ll prepare a specially selected box of fresh, seasonal, local produce just for you- all you need to do is pick it up! Have the kids in the back seat? Call us from the parking lot and we’ll bring the box to your car. Going to be out of town? Send a friend to pick up your box for you.
Each Thyme Saver Box is full of fresh Stokes Farm produce, along with locally sourced items like peaches, apples, and corn. Most items in your box will be grown on our farm. Other items will be from family farms within 75 miles of ours.

- Our 2018 Half-Season Program will begin on August 9th and run through October 12th (20 weeks)
- Each box will contain a variety of in-season produce, including vegetables, fruits, and herbs.

- Box pickup is on Thursdays or Fridays from 12 noon to 6:30pm ONLY at our Old Tappan farm stand. You must pick up your box on your assigned day. If you cannot pick up your box, you can send a friend to pick it up for you. All boxes that are not claimed on the appropriate day are donated to Old Tappan Social Services to assist a local family in need.

Interested in our CSA but can’t commit to the weekly pickup times? Is the small box too small or the large box too big? Then the Stokes Shareholder program is the one for you! The concept is easy – buy a $500 Stokes Farm gift card and we’ll tack on another $50- free!- to thank you for your commitment to our farm and for supporting local agriculture in Bergen County. Use the gift card throughout the season on fresh vegetables, fruit, eggs, pickles, baked goods, and more.
Join this program and get all of the “perks” of being a CSA member like our fabulous recipe compilations, access to CSA-member only events, and the option to buy that week’s CSA box.
