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.
