First and most importantly, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for an incredible seventh CSA season. What you have done to support us, your local economy, and a better food system is truly amazing. We know you have enjoyed the veggies (and the newsletters and the recipe resources and the farm events and our partners’ add-on shares), but we also know they’re not the only reason you decided to sign up for a CSA share this past year.
You probably signed up because you want to see a change in this world for the better. A world where farmers and their employees enjoy a fair wage and standard of living. A world with thriving local economies and family-owned small businesses located in your own neighborhood. A world with more acres in organic, sustainable and regenerative styles of agriculture. And a world where you and your family cook real food and eat healthier.
Thank you for sharing our values and being a part of the solution to a better food system and for allowing us into your kitchens.

2020 Early Bird CSA Shares & Pricing
Weekly Large Share ($625): This share is best described as a paper grocery bag full of vegetables and herbs delivered weekly for the 18 week season. This “bag” of groceries is definitely enough for a family of four who loves to cook. Members can expect large quantities of 7-12 items in their box throughout the season.
Flex Large Share ($515): The same amount of produce as the Large Share listed above, but delivered just 14 times throughout the season. This share is ideal for people who love to cook but know they will be traveling for 4-5 weeks of summer. Flex Share members will be contacted in May to select their 14 delivery dates.
Every-Other-Week Large Share ($350): The same amount of produce as the Large Share listed above, but delivered every other week throughout the season. Members will receive 10 total boxes of produce. This is especially great for people who deal well with bulk produce and enjoy cooking (but not consistently) as well as folks who travel a lot throughout the summer.
Sampler Large Share ($160): The same amount of produce as the Large Share listed above, but delivered every four weeks starting in late June or early July. Members will receive 4 total boxes of produce. This is especially great for people who are trying CSA for the first time.
Weekly Small Share ($395): This share receives a little over half as much produce as the Large Share. In other words, a half grocery bag of vegetables and herbs delivered weekly for the 18 week season. It still includes great variety (7-10 items in the box each week) but members won't receive quite as many items as Large Share members. This box is designed for one or two individual-households who love to cook most nights of the week. It's also great for families who enjoy cooking but find themselves eating away from home a few nights each week.
Flex Small Share ($335): The same amount of produce as the Small Share listed above, but delivered just 14 times throughout the season. This share is ideal for people who enjoy cooking but know they will be traveling for 4-5 weeks of summer. Flex Share members will be contacted in May to select their 14 delivery dates.
Every-Other-Week Small Share ($235): This box contains the same amount of produce as the Small Share listed above, but is delivered every other week throughout the season. Members will receive 9 total boxes of produce. This is good for people who are brand new to CSA and nervous about getting overwhelmed, or those who enjoy also visiting the farmer's market regularly.
Sampler Small Share ($110): The same amount of produce as the Small Share listed above, but delivered every four weeks starting in late June or early July. Members will receive 4 total boxes of produce. This is a very small amount of produce and is especially great for people who are trying CSA for the first time or supplement with a lot of other local food purchasing options.
