Wednesday Drop Sites  Members receive a box of pre-selected produce every week for 25 weeks from June 3 to November 18.

Prices

Membership in the CSA is on a sliding scale; we don’t ask for income verification, and trust that you will pay as high on the scale as you are able. We offer up to 2 weeks vacation credit at our produce stands if you let us know a week before. We accept SNAP/EBT for membership in our CSA. We also offer limited scholarships. We encourage all who can to contribute a tax-deductible donation to our limited-income fund to provide CSA boxes to households who cannot afford the sliding scale.
