Starting the first week of June, CSA members come to our farm to pick up their share of the harvest every week for 25 weeks, ending around Thanksgiving. The share provides a bounty of seasonal veggies, which changes from week to week as the seasons progress. We also have a 1-acre pick-your-own garden where members may help themselves to fresh flower bouquets, cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs, and (coming soon) berries.
Family Shares are recommended for families of about 4 or 5, or a couple who eats a plant-based diet. Single Shares are recommended for couples, or a single person eating a plant-based diet. We also offer a limited number of Work Shares, which involve hands-on farm work in exchange for a deep discount of the share price of a Family Share. We now also offer ten positions for Extreme Work Shares (for details please call or visit our main website).
We aim to keep the share costs as low as we can, because making fresh, local, naturally-grown food available at an affordable price is important to us. This year's share prices are $840 for a Famiy Share, $500 for a Single Share, and $315 plus 75 work hours for a Work Share. The Extreme Work Shares are $0 plus 125 work hours.
We allow payment plans for those who cannot pay fully up front, but we do encourage a full payment if possible, to help offset farming costs at the beginning of the season.
