What is a CSA?

Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a weekly produce subscription directly from our farm. It’s a convenient way for you to buy local, organically grown produce without having to dedicate your Saturday morning to shopping at a farmers’ market. Our CSA customers subscribe and prepay for a share of our farm’s harvest for a set number of weeks and in return we deliver a weekly bag of our produce to central pick-up locations.

The direct-to-consumer relationship allows for savings to both the customer and farmer.  By knowing that a certain percentage of our crops are already sold, it allows us to focus more on actual farming and worry less about marketing during the growing season. The weekly interaction also helps us have a more personal relationship with you! We are getting direct feedback on varieties, taste, and quantities and you are learning how your food is grown and where your food comes from while ensuring local, organic farms continue to grow in your community.

What are the benefits?
 

  • You receive 10% off our retail price - (you pay $18/week for a bag of produce that would cost $20 from us at the farmer's market).  Through early-bird discounts, you can receive as much as 20% off!
     

  • Each member receives two "Vacation Weeks" where they can skip a weeks' delivery without losing the value of the share. 
     

  • CSA members get priority on choice items - like strawberries, watermelons, and the best tomatoes! 
     

  • A weekday pick-up means even if you go out of town on the weekend you still get your fresh veggies!
     

  • A weekly email with news updates from the farm, storage tips, photos, and recipes!  
     

  • Easy way to make a healthy commitment for you and your family to eat more vegetables each week.  It will give you an opportunity to spend quality time with friends and family preparing and sharing nutritious meals.

What do I get each week?

Each week you pick-up a bag of our farm’s produce that we will have dropped at the pick-up location earlier that day. What is in the bag varies by season, but it will always be at least a $20 value. Since you only pay $18 per bag, you receive a 10% weekly discount!

You will also get an emailed newsletter with a list of the items in your bag, storage tips and recipes to help you get the most out of your items, and farm updates with photos.​

Full payment for your share is preferred and greatly helps us out with beginning of the season costs.

We strive to make our produce accessible to everyone.

Each member receives two "Vacation Weeks" where they can skip a weeks' delivery without losing the value of the share. If you do not use your "Vacation Weeks" your share will end at 30 weeks, or you can choose to pay for two additional weeks. 

We encourage you to ask any questions before committing and to enjoy your full season but we know circumstances change. If you have an unforeseen move or are unsatisfied with your CSA, please let us know and we will give you a pro-rated refund.
