What's a CSA?

CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a model of food production that connects farmers directly with the people who eat the food they grow. Members purchase a share in the harvest & are treated to the fresh, locally-grown vegetables in season each week.

Why Join?

Freshness: Produce picked within a day of delivery.

Choice: Take home produce you’ll actually eat! Our market-style set-up and Choice Table help you tailor your share.

Community: Develop a farm-centric community through weekly pick-ups and participation in farm events

Broaden your vegetable horizons: Be introduced to some new vegetables and discover tasty, new varieties of familiar ones - lots of exciting options beyond what you find at the grocery store.

Membership Agreement

When you submit your registration form, you agree to the following:

  • Members share in the ups and downs of the season. What you receive will depend on what grows well each week and over the course of the season. If there is a really difficult growing season, some weeks may be smaller than anticipated. By signing up you help share the inherent risk of farming. THANK YOU!
  • If you can’t make your pick-up window, you're welcome to send someone else or ask for it to be packed for a later pick-up at the farm . Otherwise, your share will be donated to a local food program. It's not possible to switch back & forth between Tuesday & Friday pick-up groups.
  • You can downsize your share at any point in the season with 2 weeks notice. Sizing up is dependent on availability.
  • Although members are encouraged to commit for a full season, it is possible to cancel a membership with 2 weeks notice and obtain a full refund for the remaining weeks.
