What is a CSA and how does it work?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture (although most people just refer to it as the “veggie box program”). You sign up for a membership during the first couple of months of the year which in turn secures the income needed to cover the costs of certain preliminary tasks prior to the season. These initial costs include purchasing seeds, compost, etc…

How much does it cost?

$550.00 for 20 weeks which includes $500 for the fresh produce, $30 for delivery fee and $20 for deposit on the boxes.

How can I purchase my CSA membership?

When does the CSA start and end?

We aim to start early June and wrap up around the end of October,beginning of November, although it varies from year to year depending on the (crazy) weather patterns.

How does the CSA pick up work?

This year we are offering a delivery membership only. Which means we will deliver your box right to your door every Thursday between 4pm – 8pm.

What can I expect in my CSA box?

arugula, beets, broccoli, carrots, kale, basil, parsley, long English type cucumbers, zucchini, lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, a variety of winter squash, swiss chard, bell peppers, cabbage, rutabaga, garlic

Each box will contain slightly different items from week to week depending on what is ready for harvest. We aim to provide salad greens in each box throughout the season.

Are your vegetables organic?

ABSOLUTELY. We are organic certified.

How much can I expect to see in one box?

You will get $25.00 worth of vegetables in each box, enough to comfortably feed (for a week) a small family of four or a couple that love to eat vegetables.

What happens if I forget to pick up my box?

You will have the opportunity to pick up your box the following two days. If your box is not picked up by the third day, we will donate it to the Poor Clares or other establishments on your behalf.
