2015 CSA season
Our full season and summer seasons started the week of June 8th.
Our fall season begins the week of September 7th.


2015 CSA Shares Are Still Available
For the 2015 season, we have introduced several new options that we hope will better serve the needs of our CSA members and the community. We have switched our on farm pick-up to Saturday morning (8-10 am). We also added more CSA membership options including a flexible full season share and the option of choosing to participate during only the summer or fall season.

CSA Season
The full 2015 CSA season is 26 weeks long. The beginning and ending dates vary each year according to the weather, but the season generally begins at the end of May or early June and continues through mid- to late-November. Our Summer Season begins at the same time and continue for 13 weeks. The Fall Season begins when the Summer Season ends in early September. A couple of weeks before our season begins, we will let shareholders know the exact date of the first pick-up through email or by phone and also post it on our website.

Pick-up and Delivery Options
In 2015, we plan to have four locations where shareholders can select their share of produce in a farmers' market-like setting and four locations where pre-boxed shares will be delivered / dropped-off. We ask our CSA shareholders to choose one pick-up location which will remain constant throughout the season.

Purchase a Share as a Gift
Give a 2015 vegetable share to a loved one this holiday. It's a gift that will keep giving each week from May through November. Pay by check or credit card (see below). Let us know this is a gift, and we'll mail you a gift certificate on which you can fill in the recipient's name. Please share with us the recipient's name and email address so we can contact them in 2015 with regards to start date and other details.

Work Share Option
Instead of exchanging cash for a share of vegetables, you can contribute your labor to the farm operation in exchange for a share. The work share option may be right for you if you appreciate physical outdoor labor, would like to learn more about sustainable farming through doing, or if your budget cannot accommodate the cash payment for a share. Click here to view the 2015 work share agreement and sign-up form.

How much food will I get?
Each week, depending on share size you purchase, you will receive 5, 8 or 14 "units" of vegetables, plus bonus herbs, hot peppers, and other special items when available. Click here for more information on our "unit" system, examples of our share sizes, and a summary of the 2009 harvest.
