The CSA begins in mid-April. We have chosen not to assign a specific date at this time due to the unpredictability of the weather, but will let you know 2 weeks in advance of the first delivery. The number one determining factor will be the ripening of the strawberries! The CSA will go at least until Thanksgiving and possibly into December.

If you are unable to pick-up your produce one week, first please try to find a friend to pick it up for you. If you are unable to do so, we will credit a payment plan or reimburse a paid in full account. We will only be able to do this if we are notified well in advance.
Members are asked to find the box with their name, retireve the plastic bag with their share, and then break down the produce box so that it can be returned to the farm and reused. Click here for instructions on breaking down your CSA box.
An email will be sent the evening prior to
pick-up with a list of what you will be receiving, descriptions, happenings on the farm, and recipes.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much produce is in each week’s share?
A full weekly share contains 6 to 8 items, and a small share contains 4 to 6 items. In the spring and fall you will receive a bag of salad, a cooking green, and at least one root vegetable each week. Other vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and fresh herbs. In the spring, you will receive strawberries every week that they are available, sometimes multiple pints. In the fall, you will receive sweet potatoes or winter squash in alternating weeks. We try to distribute reasonable portion amounts (a bunch, pint, pound, etc.) The summer shares also contain 6 to 8 items and will vary from month to month. It will be a mix of tomatoes, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, melons, potatoes, eggplant, okra, peppers, basil, and more.
