OUR CSA PROGRAM

Community Supported Agriculture

What is a CSA program?

CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a program that allows members to purchase a share of our produce prior to the season starting.

What are the benefits of a CSA?

  1. Members get a wide variety of freshly picked, high-quality produce on a weekly basis.

  2. You get a great “bang for your buck”. Members get more produce than you would typically get buying piece by piece.

  3. You know where your food is coming from and are supporting local business!

  4. No hassle. You don’t have to wait in line at a grocery store, just stop by and pick up your box of goodies! Everything is packed up for you.

 

How does it work?

Each week, on a designated day, we will have a freshly picked box of produce waiting for you. From week to week you will receive a wide range of whatever is ready for harvest. One share is expected to be a week's worth of produce for 2-4 people. We grow about 85 varieties of produce, so check out what we grow below in the "Farm Fresh Produce" to see what to expect.

 

What are the CSA guidelines and important dates?

  1. This is a 14 week CSA running from June 25th – September 24th.

  2. We are offering pick up on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays. Produce not picked up will be forfeited and will not be made up.

  3. If you are going to have a problem picking up on a given week you can have a friend or family member pick up. Please call and let us know the name of the person picking up for you.

  4. Pick up time will be between 3-6 pm.

  5. To try and be as environmentally friendly as possible we ask that you bring a bag for your produce if possible. If not, no worries you can take the box. 

What are the risks?

CSA members support their farmers and share in the inherent risks of agriculture (bad weather, disease, drought, etc.), and rewards (the bounty of a good season). We plan for such contingencies and use growing techniques that protect the harvest and minimize the risk to members.

 

How much is it and how do I make payment?

  1. The cost for the season is $350, which works out to $25/week. You can expect a variety of produce such as tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, corn, eggplant, peppers, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, beans, herbs, melons, and more.

  2. You can pay by cash, check or credit card. To register and pay by cash or check please give us a call at 860-706-9429. CSA shares are non-refundable.
