CSA Box Program
How it works
As a member, you receive a CSA box containing 8-12 different types of organic vegetables that vary throughout the season. In the spring, the name of the game is greens, herbs, radishes, peas, and other quick-growing and cold hardy vegetables. In the summer, boxes will also be loaded with warm-season favorites like tomatoes, peppers, melons, zucchini, and sweet corn. In the fall, you'll be rich in root and tuber crops, such as carrots, beets, potatoes, and sweet potatoes, along with winter squash, onions, garlic, broccoli, kale, and more. All told, you're likely to see 40+ different organic vegetables in your kitchen! You'll also receive a weekly CSA membership newsletter with the CSA box contents, updates from the farm, and a recipe that uses some of the veggies in that week's box.
Types of CSA shares
The Summer season runs for 18 weeks, from June 4th through October 1.
Full share - $575 [$550 for renewing members]. This is a good choice for a family of 3-4 which eats moderate amounts of vegetables, or an ambitious couple of veggie lovers.
Half share - $340 [$325 for renewing members]. This size is well suited for 1-2 people, or a small family just looking to try out a CSA program for the first time but supplement with produce from the farmers' market or grocery store. The quantity of each item will be smaller than that found in the full share, and sometimes there will be fewer items.
The Fall Share runs for seven weeks, from the first full week of October through the week of Thanksgiving. The first few boxes will include freshly harvested crops like spinach, kale, and broccoli (tomatoes and peppers, too, in warm years!), along with hearty storage crops, such as winter squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, and cabbage.
For those seeking a smaller volume of vegetables, we now offer an every-other-week fall share, which spans the same period of time but is delivered every other week.
Weekly Fall share - $225 [7 boxes)
Every-other-week Fall share - $140 (4 boxes)
