We are Crooked Carrot, Ithaca's first Community Supported Kitchen (CSK).  We produce a variety of healthy, locally-sourced foods to help you transform seasonal produce into delicious, convenient meals.  Crooked Carrot works similarly to a CSA: CSK members receive a "share" of food every other week.
