Community Supported Agriculture

Our CSA program offers full season, summer, fall, and bouquet shares as well as Farmstand Dollar Cards. Sign up before March 1 to receive a discount when you pay in full or choose to pay in three installments.

Families and farms working together to support healthy food, land, and communities.

To join a CSA program, members invest in the spring, when farming output costs are high, in exchange for a weekly share of the season’s harvest at a reduced price. It’s like a subscription to fresh food!

2015 Full Season, Summer, Fall, Friday Night Dinner, and Bouquet Shares are now available

Signups for 2015 now open! Signup online now here. You can also download and complete our paper signup form and mail it to us along with your payment.

Early Bird Specials

Early Bird Specials are our way of saying thank you for supporting the farm when we need to buy seeds and equipment, but have limited income. If you sign up for a full season or a summer share before March 1 you have two early bird options to choose from:

  1. Early Bird Discount: pay in full and receive a 3% discount off your total. This will save you $15-$25 off your total!

  2. Early Bird Payment Plan: Choose to pay the full amount in three installments. If you choose to pay for your CSA in 3 installments, please send us 3 checks: one dated for today and two more, post-dated, for the first of the following two months. Each check should be in the amount of 1/3 of your total. We’ll keep them in a safe place and deposit them over the months.

Farmstand Dollar Cards

Fill out our sign up form and mail it to us with your payment or sign up in the Farmstand once we open in April.

Farmstand Dollar cards are a great way to support the farm while having the flexibility to shop at your convenience anytime the farmstand is open. Your Farmstand Dollar card works like a debit card and can be purchased in any multiple of $225. Farmstand Dollar cards have a built in 10% discount, which means that every $225 you pay buys you $250 of value for your card. Cards can be replenished at any time throughout the season, and while we do encourage you to use up your card this season, any balance left will roll over to the following season. Farmstand Dollar cards can be bought in multiples of $225.
