Community Supported Agriculture is a seasonal contract between the farmer and the member. You purchase a share of the season’s harvest in advance. Your investment plays a major roll in supporting farmers at the leaner time of the year. CSA’s help pay for the seeds, soil amendments, and tools at the beginning of the farming season, when a majority of the spending happens all at once. In return, we commit to providing you with healthy, locally grown food throughout the growing season. This helps to ensure the longevity of small farms, while also reconnecting people to the land that helps to sustain them.
Our Summer CSA starts mid-June and goes till late October. 20 weeks in total. The Winter CSA is soon to follow.
We do not offer half shares currently, but if we have enough people wanting that option, we would love to add it to our list for next year. If you are interested in half shares, please email us and let us know.
Our garden is on the smaller scale. Due to space being limited, our number of vegetable shares are limited as well. You may sign up for as many shares as your family needs as long as their are shares still available. Once the shares are sold out, that is it. unfortunately we only have so much garden space and time.
If you miss a week, please let us know as soon as you can. We can either bring your share to the next farm market pickup, or double your next weeks pickup.
Please let us know ahead of time so we can prepare. We can either double your next weeks pickup or refund you for that week. You are allowed up to three refunds per year.
Signups for CSA seasons only last a limited time. Once the season begins, or shares are sold out, signups are no longer accepted. Market Card CSAs may be purchased mid season, as long as shares are still available.
CSAs can be purchased during signup times. Payments are due upon signup. No payment plans are offered at this time but may be offered on a later season. If you are interested in having a payment plan option, please feel free to contact us.
