Member Information for 2018
Members choose which share size and season they want and then pick up their share of fresh seasonal produce weekly at one of our four pick up locations. We send out an email each week with updates on veggie availability, bulk buying opportunities, recipes and cooking suggestions.
Our CSA is free choice. This means members get to choose from our farm stand display of veggies, 4, 6, or 9 "items" per week, depending on which share size they choose. Quantities are specified at the distribution as to how much of each kind of produce equals an “item", for example, items available on any given week might be a bunch of kale, 2-3 tomatoes, a ½ lb of green beans, a bunch of carrots or beets, or a half dozen ears of sweet corn.
Small Share (4 items per week): for 1 Adult. This is a nice quantity of produce if you don’t have much time to cook. It’s also a great option for gardeners looking to supplement their diets with veggies they don’t have already growing in their gardens. We strongly recommend this share for no more than one person.
Medium Share (6 items per week): for 1-2 Adults. This is a good amount for a couple, small family or individual who is vegetarian or spends a fair amount of time cooking.
Large Share (9 items per week): for 1-3 Adults, or a family with kids. This share is great for a family that likes to cook. Members who choose this share take home the most variety of veggies each week.

If there are weeks when you are unable to pick up your share: Plan ahead and find a friend or neighbor who can pick it up for you. This is a great way to build community! If you can't find someone else to pick up your share, you can always arrange with us ahead of time to switch your pick–up day (just email us 24 hours in advance of your usual pick up time).
Due to the perishable nature of vegetables, we cannot hold or replace your share if you forget to pick it up, sorry!

Now if you pick up your CSA at the farm or at the Downtown Market you can pick up a bread share (CSB) from Bread from the Earth Community Supported Bakery at the same time! Signing up for both the CSA and the CSB is a great way to save money and time, as well as support two small natural food producers in your community, not to mention that Bread from the Earth's artisanal, wood fired bread is delicious!
