The start of the CSA season is just around the corner! We anticipate first pick-up dates to begin between Tuesday, June 12th- Monday, June 18th. If we need to change first pick-up dates due to produce availability, we will be in touch with all CSA members. We are so excited to share the 2018 harvests with you!
How It Works:
CSA members sign up before the start of the season and receive a share of the farm's bounty every week. CSA members are an essential component of your farmers' businesses and provide a secure and consistent source of support.
1) Choose your share season:
- Full Season: 18 weeks, mid-June to mid-October (2018 dates TBA)
- Summer Season: 12 weeks, mid-June to end of August (2018 dates TBA)
- Autumn Season: 6 weeks, end of August to mid-October (2018 dates TBA)
2) Choose your share size:
- Single Share: Feeds 1-2 people (depending on individual eating habits) per week, approximately a half-bushel of produce, 8-10 items per week
- Family Share: Feeds about a family of 4 per week (depending on individual eating habits), approximately a full bushel of produce, 11-13 items per week and bulkier quantities
3) Choose Pre-Packed or Select-Your-Own:
- Pre-packed (Standard): Receive a pre-packed tote bag of freshly harvested produce selected by your farmer. Items will vary depending on seasonality and availability. We always strive to include the greatest variety and quality of items for you to enjoy. CSA members are welcome to swap out items if they desire.
- Select-your-own ("Market Share"): This option still provides your farmer with that important security of weekly support. However, customers get to pack their CSA bags with items they choose from the farmer's table. This option is available at all farmers market and farm stand pick-up sites.
