What is the difference between the standard CSA and the pick your own CSA?

  • The standard CSA allows the member to receive a full bag without ever having to go online and choose.  You will be getting the best of what we have to offer, a diversity!

  • The pick your own CSA allows you to choose weekly what you want and the quantities you prefer.

  • Both options offer a full season and a shortened season, for those who will be taking time off for vacations.

  • Pick your own CSA farm share must use their online credit during the farm share season’s 14-week window.

  • And, we offer weekly and bi-weekly add ons for both flowers and eggs!

Will a farm share CSA save me money?

Purchasing a full 14-week CSA costs about $27/week.  We do comparison shopping at a local store.  The average weekly price tag for what’s in your bag is $40.

What if there’s a crop failure? Do I get my
money back?

This is part of the risk of joining a CSA. You are investing in Mother Nature’s cooperation and in our expertise as farmers. There is no refund if there is a crop failure. Normally, though, conditions conspire for a bountiful harvest.
