Welcome! The 2024 CSA Season is Open for Sign-Ups. Please note that we offer TWO pick-up locations and ask that you select one to be your primary spot. Also, if you are new to the CSA and only want to sign up for the 2024 season you can choose the “One Season Membership” option. Spring and Winter Shares are only available to Sustaining Members and are currently sold out.
2024 Summer/Fall memberships are still available.
General Details Listed Below For The Summer/Fall CSA (Read Longer Description Here)
Sustaining Membership means that you are joining our CSA program for the long-haul. This will save you the trouble of signing up for future seasons and secures your spot in the CSA indefinitely. You are able to cancel your membership at any time of course (although please see our refund policy).
Full Season Membership is currently sold out. If you would like to be put on the waiting list for a Full Season Membership contact John.
Where and What Day? Pick-up will be held on Wednesdays at the Farm from 3pm-7pm (1012 Snake Hill Rd, N Scituate) and Thursdays from 2pm-7pm at Bell Street Chapel (5 Bell Street, Providence).
Please choose one day to be your assigned pickup day.
When? Pick-ups will begin in early June and run until late November for a total of 25 weeks.
What’s available? A wide assortment of vegetables are available (more than 40 crops and over 100 varieties). Eggs, Flowers, Mushrooms and Tea are also available upon purchase of a vegetable share.
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.
What’s the Price? A full share is available for $900 and is sufficient for 3-6 people. Half-shares are available for $450, adequate for 1-3 people. Three-Quarter Shares are also available for $675 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.
