2020 CSA Shares Now Available!
If you are interested in a share, please sign up by filling out our 2020 CSA Registration page here.
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct, food-share partnership between you and the farmer. This model allows consumers to have an active stake in the farm and to help them know the where, who and how of their food!
The CSA model also allows farmers to have reliable income at an important time of the year when we are ordering seeds, building infrastructure, and improving our tools and production practices.
What’s in a share, exactly?
The share takes the form of a box of vegetables and culinary herbs provided every week running from late May through mid October. Shares vary weekly depending on what’s being harvested.
We offer the CSA share to give our neighbors the option to buy our produce at a wholesale price instead of the retail prices found at market.
Your share will be a reflection of our farm: we grow over 60 different crops and varieties, carefully chosen for taste, nutrition, and quality.
Everything that we grow is pesticide-free and local: right here in Fort Collins.
How much will this cost?
The share is $500 for the 2020 season.
This comes to about $22/week (a $25 – $30 retail value) and includes several convenient pickup options each week.
**NEW for 2020: All CSA members are welcome to attend any of our classes and workshops held seasonally at the farm. No ticket purchase necessary for our CSA members, this is complimentary as we value you being here with us at the farm! The workshop schedule can be viewed under the Workshops & Events tab.**
How do I get my share?
Shares can be picked up weekly at one of the following locations:
- At the Farm: Fridays between 4pm – 7pm at 2229 West Vine Drive, just west of the roundabout at Taft Hill & Vine.
- At the the Larimer County Farmers Market in Old Town: Saturday mornings between 9am & 1pm located at Mountain & Howes in Old Town, Fort Collins.
- At Maxline Brewing: Friday between 4:30PM – 7:00PM at 2724 McClelland Dr #190 off Drake & College. (When choosing Maxline pickup, that is where your share will be for pickup each week. It is not an interchangeable pickup option like the other two options!)
The Friday at the Farm and Saturday at Market pickup options are interchangeable. We will have your share either way at those locations for you to pickup on a given week! The Maxline option is NOT interchangeable.
I’m in! What do I do next?

We ask for a $50 deposit to reserve your space for the season.
Payment in full is required by May 1st, 2020. We limit our CSA membership to 75 shares, as we enjoy having a tight knit community and getting to know our share members throughout the season.

I want to do this, but affordability is an issue for me…
Great news! We are proud to accept SNAP/EBT benefits and have grant funding to match 50% of the total share cost for SNAP recipients. This brings the share price to $250 which can be paid with EBT benefits on a bi-monthly basis.
