How does the CUSTOMIZED CSA Box work?

Once you have purchased a subscription, a credit will be loaded into your member account. Every week during the CSA season, we will send a weekly newsletter when the order window opens and what will be available in our bundle box (Members get the first crack at new seasonal items!) You will go to our website during the ordering window, select the bundle, and add it to your shopping cart.  The Bundles will have the product options available and we assign a point value to each product (1 Bunch of Carrots = 2 points.) You can select items and quantities you want staying under the total of 30 points. Submit the order and credit will be deducted from your account. Members also have the option to select a Farmer's choice box if do not desire to select individual items for their box. We will harvest your items and have them ready for pick up at the delivery location that you choose on Wednesdays! Note that all account credit must be used by the end of the CSA season on April 13th.

Frequently Asked Questions for our CSA

Q: What is "CSA"?
A: CSA stands for "Community-Supported Agriculture." It's a partnership between a farm and its community. CSA members pay a subscription fee at the beginning of the growing season, which the farm then uses to buy seeds and supplies. In return, the farm harvests “the cream of the crop” for members and delivers it each week to a pick-up location. The CSA model creates a direct connection between farmers and eaters.
