How does it work? CSA pick-up is a Farmer’s Market set-up. Members “shop” at the pick-up, taking what they want from the stand. Some required weekly items and restrictions apply on a weekly basis. The share is typically not pre-bagged although COVID-19 may require a more restricted pick-up experience.
What’s the Price? A full share is available for $775 and is sufficient for 3-6 people. Half-shares are available for $400, adequate for 1-3 people. Three-Quarter Shares are also available for $600 and feed 2-5 people. Work-shares are also available. EBT payments are accepted. If you consider yourself low income, please contact us and we can set-up a payment plan at a reduced rate.
