Member Information for 2017
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.
NEW! Bread from the Earth CSB Shares at Full Plate Farm
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! We are excited about this new partnership, and hope it will benefit our customers and our community. 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 amazing! They are offering a special deal to Full Plate farm CSA members, so don't miss out! Click here to find out more and sign up.
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.

You can pay in full at the beginning of the season, or pay in two installments, half at the beginning of the season, and half halfway through. Installment payment due dates are specified at checkout and on our printable sign up form.
The price of skipping one or two weeks of pick up is calculated into the price of your share, but If you plan to be away for more than two weeks or you join after the CSA start date, contact us and we can prorate your share price.
Work trade is available to those with farm experience on a limited basis. Contact us for more details.
If you are in need of financial assistance, please ask us about the Vermont Farm Share Program. You may be eligible for a partially subsidized share.
We are willing to accommodate your individual needs. Please contact us if you have any questions!
Fridays 4:00-6:00 pm, at Roselily Farm Stand, 236 Barrows Rd. (Pick-up in Marlboro will be a little different this year: we will not be setting up a manned table, but will drop off bags of veggies at Roselily. We unfortunately need to do this in order to allow one of us farmers to stay and work at the farm on Friday afternoons. You will still be able to choose your veggies though! You can pre-order via email with your choice of veggies from the newsletter list each week, or a standard selection of veggies can be supplied if you forget or prefer not to pre-order. Instructions and details of ordering will be sent out to members prior to the first week of CSA.)
Fridays 4:00-5:30 pm. Pick up at Folly restaurant, 33 West Main Street.
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!
