CSA programs provide a way for communities to connect food from local farms with local people. Families and individuals subscribe to a seasonal share of farm produce (and local fruit when available) from a local farm(s). Farms benefit by having a reliable demand, and customers have a reliable supply of healthy, fresh produce. CSA's can be seasonal or full season. We offer seasonal CSA memberships in the Spring, Summer, and Fall and possibly Winter. CSA members receive a weekly box of produce, usually 6-8 different items including local fruit when available.
Boxes vary with each season. We have four CSA sessions: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Each box has between 6-9 different items, valued at between $25-$29 each week. The box includes vegetables that we grow on our farm,. We will also include vegetables or fruits from other local farms as needed or available. Below are some sample boxes for the 2021 season:
Winter (every 2 weeks)
The idea of a CSA is that the customer pays in advance for a share of the farm produce (weekly "farm box" during season). Right now we charge the equivalent of $25/week and have several payment options for each CSA session: pay in full, or half at sign up and other half before CSA starts. Other payment plans are available upon request. Fall and Winter CSA prices are to be determined. Delivery is currently calculated at $2.50/week for CSA subscribers within our region.

2021 Pick up days and locations:
We recommend considering if there is anyone who would appreciate your box that week, and arrange for them to pick it up. Sometimes folks have house sitters or people who watch their dogs, or neighbors or family members who might put it to good use. You can also choose to "donate" your box that week and we will take it to a food donation facility such as "The Ark" or Tri-C in Elkin, or the Food Closet in Sparta. We can also credit customers accounts if needed or do custom invoices deducting the missed week(s) if we know in advance of payment.
