What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct, food-share partnership between you and the farmer. The CSA share program gives our customers the option to buy our produce at a wholesale price. This model brings farmers income at an important time of the year when we are ordering seeds, building infrastructure, and improving our tools and production practices.
2021 CSA Program
*New* For the 2021 season we will be shifting to our CSA model from a traditional box to a free-choice CSA program. This means that you will be able to select your own produce each week from what we have available – in any amount and whichever crops and varieties are your favorite. If you miss a week, or are out of town, you can use your remaining credit on any week and pick up where you left off. The 2021 CSA runs from May – October.
The CSA share costs $500 and you will receive $550 to spend with us during the season. With this model you will still receive a discount on our produce, in the form of an additional 10% on your CSA member card. If you would like to have more to spend with us throughout the season you can choose to pay more up front than the standard $500, or reload your card at any time, and receive the same 10% in addition.
If you enjoyed our traditional CSA model of years past, we will still be offering seasonal farm boxes periodically throughout the season. You can use your CSA member card to purchase a seasonal farm box, if you like the contents of the box on any given week. Sign up for your 2021 CSA Share at this link.
The share costs $500 for the 2021 season, and you will receive $550 in credit to use throughout the season. A non-refundable $200 deposit is requested to hold your space. Payment in full is required by April 1st, 2021.
We accept SNAP/EBT benefits and can match 50% of the total share cost for SNAP recipients through the Double Up Food Bucks Program. This brings the share price for SNAP members to $250, which can be paid with EBT benefits on a monthly basis. Members paying with this method can pay in increments of your choosing throughout the season, and we do not need payment in full until later in the season depending on what payment plan works for you. The minimum deposit required for a EBT/SNAP customer is $50 on your EBT card, which we will match with Double Up Bucks to achieve a $100 deposit.
