Community Supported Agriculture or CSA programs form a mutual partnership between a community and farm. Members purchase a ‘share’ of the harvest and make a payment at the beginning of the season. You help share the risk of farming with us, as well as the rewards. Some seasons, crops don’t fare well due to weather, pests, or general crop failure, but on the flip side, your share isn’t restricted by a dollar value. It’s not just a bag of produce, but a direct connection to your food.
2015 marked our 4th year offering a CSA and is our favorite part of farming; connecting with our supporters and their families! Our produce is always grown organically, as we believe true sustainability can only be reached through a community type approach to growing.
Below is a selection of the fruits and vegetables we will be growing for our members.
Apples, Asparagus, Beans, Bok Choi, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Collards, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Garlic, Garlic Scapes, Green Onions, Herbs, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Melons, Variety of greens, Okra, Onions, Peaches, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Radishes, Spinach, Squash, Sweet Corn, Sweet Potatoes, Swiss Chard, Tomatoes, Turnips, Zucchini.
As CSA share add-ons, we are offering a meat share this year, which includes a variety of cuts from all our pasture raised animals including: chicken, pork, beef, lamb, duck, guinea, and turkey. All of our animals are raised outdoors without added hormones or antibiotics. Also, we are offering an Egg share, which includes one dozen eggs per week from our free range chickens.
Our season generally begins in early May, but that is weather dependent. Our summer season will be 15 deliveries over 16 weeks, allowing for one missed delivery for vacation. By mid-August, we usually wrap-up our summer program. Our fall season will be 10 weeks, running from mid-September until the week of Thanksgiving.
We are offering Tuesday and Thursday home delivery for the Salisbury and surrounding areas. Alternative options can be made including pick up at the farm or Salisbury Farmers market.
Summer share only – $325.00
Fall share only – $200.00
Full season share (summer & fall) – $500.00
Egg share – $4.00/wk for a total of $60.00 for summer only, $40 for fall only, $100 for full season.
Meat share – $150.00 for summer only, $100.00 for fall only, $250.00 for full season.
An important part of the CSA model is for the farm to be able to be funded at the beginning of the season so loans aren’t necessary. While we ask to have payment by April 1, we do offer payment installments if you need them. We want to share our produce and our farm with you so we are flexible!
