What is A CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA is a unique partnership of mutual support and commitment between local farmers and community members. In a traditional CSA, members pay for a full seasons worth of 'shares' upfront to help cover initial farm costs and in turn receive a weekly share of the harvest during the growing season. We understand that this can be a large commitment for some of you, and that's why we offer a few different options:
1. CSA Farmer's Club (NEW!):
This is a great way to support the farm up front like with our traditional CSA, but you also get the flexibility of buying what you want, when you want. You purchase a Market Card up front and use it like cash at the market.
The CSA Farmer's Club Market Cards can be redeemed for any products at our Farmers Market stand, at any time. We keep track of your market card's balance for you, so the only thing you have to worry about is what veggies and other goodies to pick!
Flexibility at the market. Want a big order of salad mix? No problem! Cant make it to market this week? We'll see you next week!
Support your local farm and be a part of the club, by providing the farmers with income upfront to help us pay for early season farm costs (seeds, soil, and such aint cheap!).
Great for grocery budgeting - Don't need your wallet to buy veggies at the market.
Discounts are available on Market Cards above certain price points if purchased in advance.
The difference between the Farmer's Club and the Traditional CSA is that the Farmer's Club gets their produce on a first come, first serve basis at market prices; where the Traditional CSA receives a bounty of produce, hand packaged by the farm, and set aside for you to pick up during any market hour. Traditional CSA shares also get more bang for their buck, typically receiving a greater quantity of produce than what it would cost at market prices.
2. Traditional CSA:
Our traditional CSA is for those who love to support the farm, love to 'cook with the seasons', and love a great variety of different vegetables and fruits each and every week. We share our bounty with our CSA customers - each weekly "share" costs $20 and is one box/bag of fruits/vegetables that are selected by the farmers based on what is in season and available. When we have a bumper crop, you reap the rewards with more produce (note this also goes the other way, CSA shares do not guarantee any one particular type or variety of produce. We generally shoot for at least 7 different items worth at least $20). You can purchase Full Season (20 weeks), Spring Season (10 weeks), or Summer Season (10 weeks) shares.
