Purchasing a CLASSIC 14-week CSA costs $30/week. When comparison shopping at local stores we total the average weekly price tag for what’s in your box at $39-$43 - and not all of it organically grown nor freshly harvested - like ours is!
On top of our delicious food, our memberships include access to a weekly "unpack your box" video, recipes, two wax boxes (that we use to deliver your products) and unlimited information on native plants, meadows and ecological landscaping!
