INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR 2013 CSA MEMBERSHIP
What is CSA? It stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The foundation of CSA membership is participation in the Farm production, by purchasing a share of the farm's seasonal crop, thus providing the grower the necessary capital to produce it for you. In so doing you secure a weekly portion of fresh, local, organic & nutritious produce for the entire season.
There are many CSA farms in the US, each with its uniqueness both in crops and delivery methods. The majority of them offer seasonal 'box' that is identical for all its members. Dropsite / pick up is provided for a fee.
Our on-farm CSA program is flexible; it lets you choose among a variety of produce that is available, for $35 weekly, a 15% savings over your paid amount of $30 (full share only). Your Preferred Membership provides additional 15% savings for purchases over that amount.
CSA Delivered option (Minimum 5 members per drop-off location) offers Farmer's Choice Selection of produce, communicated in advance via email. Additional fee of $78 ($3 per week) for S&H is required.
Weekly Schedule: two days to choose from: Fri. 1-7 pm & Sat. 9-6
Other pick up days may be arranged with prior notice.
