An organic farm about 130 miles north of New York City is taking registrations for a workplace community supported agriculture program that delivers to offices in the Big Apple.

Katchkie Farm, a 60-acre organic operation in Kinderhook, N.Y. delivers boxes of seasonal organic vegetables each week to companies that have a minimum of 20 employees enrolled in the program, according to a news release.

Farm owner Liz Neumark is chief executive officer of Great Performances, a New York City catering business. The caterer uses food from the Katchkie Farm, and clients include Sotheby’s and a club at Lincoln Center.

For the farm-to-cubicle program, Neumark offers a 22-week season of vegetable boxes for $580. Eleven-week half-shares in the CSA program are available for $290.

Vegetables this season include peas, asparagus, tomatoes, sweet corn, squash and kale. Additional details and registration information is available online at http://katchkiefarm.com.
