In 2016 we will offer 19 weeks of vegetables from June through early October. We have Wednesday delivery sites are in Arlington (at the SRA building at 3434 Washington Boulevard) and in Lorton (at the Capital Area Food bank warehouse at 6833 Hill Park Drive), and Warrenton at Whiffletree Farm's farm store. We also serve the Rappahannock county area through CSA and an on-farm stand. On-farm shareholders pick up on the farm on Thursdays. We offer full shares for a family of 4 or 2 vegetarians, and half shares for one or 2 people. Shares include a biweekly newsletter with recipes and opportunities to visit the farm for special events.
Shares delivered to Arlington and Lorton are $560 for a full share; $330 for a half share. Shares picked up on the farm are $500 for a full share; $270 for a half share.
About CSAsCSA farms are funded by shareholders who purchase advance shares from the farm in exchange for a weekly supply of fresh produce during the growing season. Over 500 CSAs in the U.S., all created since the mid-1990s, now help establish partnerships between farmers and their customers.
Your Weekly ShareShareholders receive a weekly box of the produce we grow, from early June through sometime in October. A biweekly newsletter with recipes, farm notes, shareholder contributions, and pictures from the farm is included. Two shareholder events are hosted on the farm each year.
One share is appropriate for a family of four or two adults who eat a lot of vegetables. Shares start relatively small in June and increase in size and variety with the growing season, with peak amounts in August and September. Please see our crop list and estimated harvest schedule.
Please call us at 540-987-8567 for the most current prices for shares and half-shares.
