CSA details

The summer 2020 CSA is sold out.

FFLC offers a unique CSA membership option: a 25-week CSA (from June to November, 2020) with pickup at various drop sites.

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.

We also have funding from Double Up Food Bucks for SNAP users – your cost will be $350 for a family share and $225 for a small share, divided over 5 months with a $50 deposit, all paid for with SNAP funds.

CSA members who pay with SNAP are eligible for up to $200 off the cost of their CSA. If you’d like to use your SNAP benefits to join our CSA, please contact us here.
