Over the last 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for people to buy local sustainable products directly from the farmer. In a typical organic vegetable CSA a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” of the farms harvest to the public. Shares are often sold months before the planting season begins. This arrangement creates rewards for both the farmer and the shareholder. The shareholder receives weekly or bi-weekly boxes of fresh locally grown vegetables and each share the farmer sells helps the farm with upfront costs such as inspection fees, compost, fertilizers and seed stock.
OUR CSA PROGRAM
We will be offering 30 shares for the 2017 season. Our CSA Program (not including pre-season) will run for 21 weeks with the first box being picked up at our 1st Harvest Farm Day on Sunday June 4th, 2017 where we will be giving a tour of the farm and serving lunch using ingredients from our farm. The last box of the season will be picked up at our CSA Appreciation Day Dinner on Saturday October 21, 2017. All other boxes will be delivered on a specific day each week (delivery schedule TBD). NOTE: If you are unable to attend either farm event we will make delivery arrangements.

WHAT IF I’M GOING ON VACATION OR CAN’T PICK UP MY BOX?
We suggest you have a friend or family member enjoy your box while you are out of town. Let us know at least 48 hours in advance so that we can make delivery/pick up arrangements. If you will not have someone else pick up your box we will give you a box credit to apply to next years CSA Membership or you may use your credit to gift a box to a friend or family member at anytime throughout the CSA Season the credit was given. Sorry, no cash refunds.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T PICK UP MY BOX?
If you do not pick up your box on the scheduled pickup day, your box will be donated or given to a family in need. Sorry, no box credits will be given under these circumstances.
CAN I SPLIT A CSA SHARE WITH A FRIEND?
Yes. We will arrange a pickup/delivery schedule that will suit both of your needs.
