Community Supported Agriculture

A CSA share provides you with a direct relationship to where your food is produced (here!) and who is growing it (I am!). With this model, you pay the full cost of the share at the beginning of the season*, which allows us farmers to purchase seed and equipment in the spring when costs are high. It allows you to eat seasonally, locally, and deliciously all summer long and know exactly where it's coming from.

 

When you sign up for our share you'll get a box of fresh veggies weekly from June to October. We harvest everything within a few days of pick-up to ensure your food is super fresh.

*Payment plan is also available.

2023 CSA OPENING SOON!

HOW IT'S GOING TO WORK IN 2023

  • Each week you'll get to order your very own selection of veggies representing your share of the harvest. When I send out the weekly farm newsletter, you'll also get an online ordering link to place your order.

  • Customizing your share each week gives you some flexibility. You don't need to order exactly the share's $ worth that you've prepaid for ($30/week for regular shares, $45/week for large shares), and if you go on vacation, just refrain from ordering that week and use of your credit during a week you are feeling hungrier, going on a canning spree or having a dinner party.

  • There will also be a "farmer's choice" option in case you prefer it when I recommend what you should eat every week!

  • When you place your weekly order, you'll also choose which day you are coming to the farm to grab your veggies (there will be two pick-up days per week to keep it convenient).

  • The season will run for 20 weeks from mid June to end of October.

  • Can't subscribe but want to support small farms and community health? Consider sponsoring a full or partial share, and it'll be distribute to local folks experiencing food insecurity with the help of the ever-inspiring charity Loving Spoonful.

  • Not sure if you can commit to weekly veggies or the farm pick up? Consider splitting a share with a friend, roommate, or coworkers and fighting over who gets what! I'm going to work on connecting CSA members who live near each other to facilitate pick-up duty sharing. I know the farm is a trek from towns like Kingston but I'm hoping to foster a community of CSA members who support each other as well as supporting their farmer!

SIZES

Our small share is suitable for a small family, couple, or one veggie-loving individual.

Our large share works well if you eat a lot of veggies. Good for a large household, someone who likes hosting dinner parties, or a pair of vegetarians/vegans.

Remember that you can always freeze or preserve extra veggies to munch on throughout the winter months.

WHAT YOU'LL BE ENJOYING

pick-up times

A regular share allows you to order about 7 or 8 different veggies each week and stay within prepaid budget. Larger shareholders will take home about a dozen items each week. Our crop plan revolves around keeping the options as diverse as possible so you aren't ordering the same old thing every week. You'll be able to choose from  a constant supply of staples such as carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, potatoes... and you can get fancy and order something more unusual that you can't find at the store, and even try something new! Unusual veggies I've come to love as a farmer are napa cabbage, fennel, celeriac, raddichio, rapini, lemongrass, and asian greens like mizuna and tatsoi.
