What is a CSA: CSA stands for community supported agriculture. Investing up-front in a seasons worth of produce helps our farm thrive and allows us to plan our crops and finances for the coming season.
When: from June7-October 4 (total of 18 weeks)
What time/Where: pick-ups will be Tuesday afternoons from 4-6pm at the farm
We aim to make our vegetables affordable and accessible while also bringing in enough money to keep this small farm business thriving. Our “pay what you can” approach is meant to keep fresh, organic, locally-grown vegetables on everyone’s table and allow our community to thrive together.
The Basic Price is what we would consider a “fair” price for our produce. This price reflects a 15%-20% discount off our retail prices at farmers’ market.
The Sustaining Price is here for those that are able to pay a little more to support our small farm business and our community. By subscribing as a sustainer you will help us continue to offer the discounted price and keep our vegetables accessible to everyone in our community.
The Discounted Price is here for those customers who would like to access locally-grown, organic vegetables but find the price of a CSA share cost prohibitive. We do not require any other information from you to access this price. We leave it up to the customer to choose the share price that best suits their financial needs.
