Pick-up and Delivery Options
In 2016, we plan to have three locations where shareholders can select their share of produce in a farmers' market-like setting and two 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.

      (7121 Church Hill Road, Chestertown, MD 21620)
      Tuesday from 4pm - 6pm

Purchase a Share as a Gift
Give a 2016 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 2016 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 2016 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.
