Turns out, the Boxcar Press staff loves food nearly as much as they love letterpress.
In 2008, we partnered with Grindstone Farm, a 240 acre organic farm located in Pulaski, NY. Boxcar Press now subsidizes the CSA Shares for all of their employees, and provides a pick up location for the community. Turns out, it was an easy way to make a positive impact for a cause we care about! According to Grindstone owner and farmer Dick de Graff, participating in a CSA is one of the best ways to support local farmers; by purchasing a “share” of the farmer’s crops at the beginning of the season, the buyer shares in the risk and reward of whatever the season brings.
Pictured here are some of the “rewards” of this year’s harvest season, which is about to come to an end.

We want to hear from you! We love how much letterpress community members pitch in to help others. What causes does your letterpress shop support?
