Why Small Businesses Matter: Stoneledge Farm CSA

Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

You're IT Stoneledge Farm CSA!

Three questions with Candice Kavakos, farm manager at Stoneledge Farm CSA.

Why did you start your business?

We started out growing food for our family and each year we added a little more and then started taking our products to the farmer's markets. We had great interest at the farmer's market in our organic vegetables. This then lead us to start three CSA locations one right here at the farm and two in NYC 27 years ago. We now grew to 26 pickup locations stretching from the Hudson Valley, NYC, and Connecticut.

What is your best-selling product/service?

Our best-selling product is our Certified Organic Produce.

How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?

Our policy from the very start was to donate 10% of our shares. At each CSA pick-up location, we have partnered with a food bank, soup kitchen, or community fridge to hand out produce once a week for the full growing season.

Stoneledge Farm CSA is located at 12 Crane Road in Stamford. Visit Stoneledge Farm CSA online here, and make sure to check out their Facebook page as well!
