Pick Your Own CSA

Pick-Your-Own CSA

As part of our mission, we seek to try innovative new strategies to engage the public in supporting local agriculture. In 2019, we piloted a Pick Your Own CSA, a unique model to this region. Our program was well-received and we are now accepting new members for our 2020 season!

For 18 weeks, from July through October, at only $30/week, you'll enjoy harvesting your very own share of the freshest, nutrient-dense vegetables while getting outside, getting dirty, and getting involved in our community. We'll grow a selection of tried-and-true summer favorites like squash, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, and tomatoes, and you'll also pick unique varieties of veggies like peppers and eggplants. Included in your membership is a weekly bouquet of wildflowers that you select from the field. 

COVID-19 UPDATE: As we continue to monitor the CDC and Governor's guidance for producers, we have decided to offer both the Pick Your Own CSA model as well as a drive-up, pre-packaged model. We will adjust the Pick Your Own model if necessary depending on guidance at the end of June.

FAQ

  1. How is this different from other CSAs? Unlike other local CSAs where you pick up your share at a designated location, we are offering the opportunity to design your own weekly share based on what you most like to harvest and eat. While there is some work involved, we view it as a true benefit to have the ability to explore the Farm and learn to harvest your own food.
  2. I have no idea how to harvest vegetables! How would I even be able to do this? We will have a farmer or staff person at every designated harvest time to walk through the fields with you, show you where the vegetables you want are, and how exactly to harvest them. It will be fun and easy!
  3. What if I'm traveling out of town and will miss a week? Just let us know ahead of time and send a friend to pick up your share.

Dates

Our Pick-Your-Own CSA will run for 18 weeks this summer from July 1st to October 31st.
