COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

CSA stands for “Community-Supported Agriculture” and is a convenient solution for providing your family with fresh produce each week while supporting your local farm. We offer two 12-week sessions including at spring/summer and a fall/winter session with a variety of fresh seasonal vegetables in your weekly share. Seasonal eating at its best. 

WE HAVE A NEW WAY TO VOLUNTEER!!! Please consider signing up for our new Work Share program.

 Work Share programs are the way CSAs were originally run in the early 90s whereby members that volunteered got their CSA membership at a discounted rate. We are specifically looking for work share members to help harvest and post-harvest on 1) Wednesday mornings for our CSA and restaurant sales and, 2) Friday mornings for our markets on Saturday mornings. The work period would be from 8:00-11:00 a.m. You would be expected to pick either Wednesday or Friday and stick to that day for the 12 week CSA period. Most harvesting is done by hand but sometimes we will use harvesting knives depending on the crop and your comfort level. Work Share members are expected to be able to listen and learn effectively, safely work at a "restaurant pace," adhere to farm standards of quality with respects to vegetable cleanliness and aesthetics and maintain high standards of workplace cleanliness. You must also be able to laugh, tell jokes, dance and/or sing. Quirks and weirdness are welcomed and encouraged. Farms are the most beautiful commercial work space you will ever get to enjoy,  but nevertheless, the farm is a commercial operating and we must be very intentional and precise with how we get things done.  At the same time, we want to enjoy our work and the beauty that surrounds us. 

 
In exchange for your commitment, we are offering a 50% discount on our CSA program. This reduces the cost of the CSA to $180 ($15/week). Work Share members who show high degrees of competence and work at least two 12 week sessions will qualify for a free CSA share if they sign up for a third session.   It's a great way to get learn while you work, save money and eat healthy!
