“CSA” stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” Members of a CSA become partners with their farm, paying a deposit at the beginning of the season and receiving produce throughout the year. The farm uses the deposits to start the year’s production.
Update 2/03/14: Sign-ups are open. There are plenty of chicken shares. Egg deliveries will start late this year; current estimate is “June.” If you sign up for a chicken share you can also reserve an egg share. If you ONLY want egg shares please contact us as we have to add these from “behind the curtain.” Guaranteed Winter Pork shares for February/March are sold out, however additional shares may become available so please contact us to join the waiting list if you are interested.
This year there are also options to add your name to a reservation waiting list for a milk and/or a simple veggie box share… if we get enough sign-ups we will turn these into active shares and begin deliveries; there is no cost to be on the reservation list. Turkey sign-ups will begin later in the spring.
You can click here to sign up for shares. You will need to create an account with your email address and a password of your choosing. Then you will be prompted to select a pickup site, choose chicken and/or egg shares, and any options that you may want (such as giblets, a Thanksgiving turkey, etc).
**While signing up, remember to keep clicking “Next” until you get all the way through to the payment step, complete the payment step, and receive a confirmation email. You are not signed up until you complete the payment step!**
