Thanks for reaching out to us about joining our local pick up CSA Program! We are so grateful for neighbors like yourself who are interested in investing in local agriculture. Basically, you have a few options:

  • If you want to get food every week for the rest of the year, then you are well suited for our Annual Share, which would be prorated for your start date and you could pay down in monthly, or quarterly installments.
  • If you would like to receive shares most weeks, but need to take long breaks or want to avoid a cancellation fee, sign up as a Seasonal Member. Seasonal membership is higher than annual membership per week to offset the lack of financial support the farm would experience during your breaks. Seasonal memberships are purchased in share blocks of no fewer than 4 weeks.

Our memberships are all-you-need and free-choice, therefore shares are sold by household, not by individual. We cannot sell shares to only one adult if there is more than one living in the household.
