C.S.A., or "Community Supported Agriculture," allows community members to know exactly where their food comes from and build a relationship with the farmers who grew it. Members can purchase shares of produce prior to the growing season to help cover the costs of farm operations. In exchange, shareholders receive an offering of fresh, seasonal vegetables.
Traditional Box C.S.A
Enroll in advance and pick up a box of freshly harvested produce every week - we have 2 or 3 options for day of the week depending on the season.
All Box CSA Memberships include an emailed weekly newsletter filled with farm updates, recipes, storage tips, and more!
Our 4-week program begins in early May and runs through late May. There is one share size available for a total of $60 (valued at over $15 per week). This is the perfect option for those who love a variety of greens. We expect to be harvesting crops like lettuce, salad mixes, kale, broccoli rabe, spinach, Asian greens, asparagus, radishes, and more.
Our 20-week summer Box C.S.A. will span from early June through late October. We are offering full shares of produce for $500 (you receive more than $25 of produce per week) or partial shares of produce for $320 (you receive more than $16 of produce per week). This main season share includes all of the classic summer vegetables, rotated on a frequent basis. Also experiment with new favorites like kohlrabi, hakurei salad turnips, bok choy, and more.
Our fall program runs for 8 weeks from late October to mid-December. Choose from a full share of produce for $200 (you receive more than $25 of produce per week) or a partial share of produce for $130 (you receive more than $16 of produce per week). Shares will include root crops like beets and carrots, winter squashes, greens, and brassicas (broccoli, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and more). Weather permitting, we may still have tons of summer favorites available, too.

Farm Credit C.S.A
Members make an upfront investment and receive a percentage to spend on our products. (For example, the member pays $90 to us and receives $100 in credit.) Members can stop into the stand or visit us at the market any time it is open to make purchases on items of their choosing. Credit must be spent during the 2019 season. This is the perfect option for members who want more flexibility to shop when they want and to choose their variety and quantity of produce!
