CSA Description and Benefits

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program in which consumers support a local farm by subscribing and paying a seasonal fee in exchange for receiving fresh local produce. In our CSA programs, subscribers pick up their portion of the harvest at one of several pickup points.

There are many CSA program benefits. As a subscriber, you will:

  1. Receive our produce, including a wide variety of traditional and specialty crops;
  2. Enjoy 100% USDA Certified Organic produce grown by us without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides;
  3. USDA Logo
  4. Experience fresh, nutritious produce that is pre-chilled and delivered to numerous pickup points;
  5. Know the source of the food you eat and support local organic farming;
  6. Support the protection of the environment;
  7. Have opportunities to visit the farm, where you can see your food grow and learn more about organic farming; and
  8. Receive weekly emails which include information such as the week's crop list, farm news, recipes, and cooking, handling, and storage tips.

Summer CSA (For 15 Weeks Beginning in late May)

Our Summer CSA is a 15 week program that begins in late May and ends in late August.

All of the produce for our Summer CSA is grown by us and is USDA certified organic. Thus, each week you will receive those crops that are in season locally. Typically your portion will include some combination of lettuce, broccoli, greens, root crops, leeks, onions and cabbages in May and early June. In late June and early July, you can expect to see the addition of tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, fennel, and basil and other herbs. In late July and August, your portion will include some combination of cucumbers, squash, peppers, herbs, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, melons, and zucchini. Throughout the season, your portion will also include many heirloom as well as specialty foods such as sweet Italian peppers, arugula, Chinese cabbages, red and blue potatoes, Asian cucumbers, and other unique varieties. A listing of most of our crops is on the "Our Crops" webpage.

For our Summer CSA, you have a choice between a Personal Subscription and a Family Subscription. Our Family size is the same size as the Standard Subscription we offered in previous years. Examples of Family size boxes are pictured below. The quantity of produce in a Personal Subscription is approximately 50% - 60% of that in a Family Subscription. The price for a Personal Subscription is $280.00 plus sales tax. The price of a Family Subscription is $420.00 plus sales tax.

Later in the season, your portion will include some combination of cool season crops such as lettuce, kale, bok choy, tatsoi, cabbage, chard, radishes, bunching onions, kohlrabi, arugula, collards, sweet potatoes, and turnips.

Winter CSA (7 Weeks Beginning in early December and ends in February 2016.)

We plan to have no deliveries for the two weeks that include Christmas and New Year's Day. Additionally, it is likely that there will be weeks that we do not deliver in the winter because of weather conditions. Our best estimate is that we will have 2 or 3 CSA weeks in December, 2 or 3 in January and 2 in February for a total of 7 weeks. Our plan is to send an email on Fridays or Saturdays that will inform you as to whether there will be a pickup the next week or not. Because cold temperatures can impact crop growth rates significantly, Winter CSA Subscribers need to be somewhat flexible.
