2014 CSA Season
Once again in 2014, we are providing locally-grown, fresh produce to our neighbors on the Eastern Shore for a 26-week long season. We are offering three share sizes and the same pick-up options as in 2013. For more details, please continue reading through this page.

Sign Up Now
You can either pay by check (which we prefer because then 100% your payment goes to the farm) or pay with credit card through PayPal.

To pay by check, please mail your payment to us with your completed Shareholder Agreement.

To pay by credit card, you can pay in full or in three installments

Purchase a Share as a Gift
Give a 2014 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 above). 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 2014 with regards to start date and other details.

2014 Share Sizes and Prices:

  • small share (5 units/week) for $365   (A cost of $14.04 per week.)
  • medium share (8 units/week) for $525    (A cost of $20.19 per week.)
  • large share (14 units/week) for $800    (A cost of $30.77 per week.)
    *The average weekly cost of a CSA share is typically lower than its retail value.

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.

Fresh vegetables will be available for pick-up once a week for 26 weeks, end of May or early June through mid-November at one of four farmers' market-style pick-up locations.
