HOW IT WORKS
A CSA Share is a subscription service (like Netflix, or the newspaper - but for delicious food). You pay upfront (in full or in installments) and then once a week you come to one of our pickup locations and grab your box of farm goods. You can stop in to get your groceries on the go, or stay to chat with your farmers, meet your neighbors or snip some flowers from the you-pick garden.
In addition to knowing you're supporting our farm when we need it most, members enjoy:
PRICE DISCOUNT: The total retail value of each box ranges from $60-$70 dollars. Members are saving 10-25% on the goods they would otherwise purchase at retail value.
YOU-PICK ACCESS: Members and their families can stop in and help themselves from our herb and flower you-pick garden, from 8 to 5 any day of the week.
SPECIAL EVENTS: Members will receive first notice of farm events, receive discounts on ticketed events and will have periodic events and activities just for them.

We now offer installment payments! You can pay for your share upfront or in installments over the season. If you choose to pay in installments we ask you to stick to the following schedule:
Full Share Members: 4 payments of $260. The first payment is due at sign up to hold your share and the rest are due by the following dates: July 1st, August 1st and September 1st.
Half Share Members: 2 payments of $288, the first due at signup to hold your share. The second payment is due by August 1st.
Members can switch between Thursday and Saturday pickups any time as long as they let us know by Tuesday of that week. If you need to miss a week entirely, you can send a friend to pick up your share. You can choose to gift just your produce (and redeem your meat and eggs another week) or gift the whole thing. It's a wonderful way to "share your share" and bring newcomers in to the world of local food.
