CSA Farm Share
what is csa?
Community Supported Agriculture is a unique agriculture system where community members pledge their support to a local farm by paying an upfront fee for a share of vegetables. This money allows the farmers to cover costs such as seeds, tools, compost and equipment before the season begins. In return, the farmers provide weekly shares of fresh produce throughout the growing season. In this mutually beneficial system consumers and producers share the risks and rewards associated with farming. We think it's a win-win!
A $100 deposit is required to reserve a CSA share. We encourage members to pay the remaining balance ASAP to help us cover early season start-up costs. Shares can be paid for in installments, please contact us to discuss a plan that will work for you.

What's in a share
Each week you'll receive a share filled with seasonal, organic vegetables, grown lovingly by us! For a full list of what we grow, visit our What We Produce page.
We know that choice is important to our members. At each CSA pickup we allow members to customize their shares by swapping out veggies they don't want for ones that they do.

The CSA program starts during the first week of June (if weather permits). The program runs for 20 weeks and ends in mid October.
