FFLC offers a CSA membership option to support our work at the Youth Farm and provide delicious and nutritious local produce: a 25-week CSA with pickup at various drop sites in Eugene and Springfield on Wednesdays (May 31 – Nov. 15) and Fridays (June 2 – Nov. 17).
We also offer Youth Farm Bucks, as an alternative to our CSA. Pay $90 to purchase a Youth Farm Bucks gift card worth $100 of produce available at our online and onsite produce stands with contact free pick-up, open Saturdays June through October 2023!
Sliding Scale Prices
We offer a sliding scale fee for the CSA membership to make our produce accessible to more people; we don’t ask for income verification, and trust that you will pay as high on the scale as you are able.
|Cost:||All drop sites (25 weeks)|
|Family (9-11 items)
||$575-750 sliding scale|
|Small (6-7 items)
||$450-575 sliding scale|
We accept SNAP/EBT. CSA members who pay with SNAP are eligible for up to half off the cost of their CSA through the PNW CSA Coalition’s Double Up Food Bucks Program. If you’d like to use your SNAP benefits to join our CSA, please contact us here
We offer limited first come, first served scholarships. Contact us to learn more. 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.
If you let us know by the week before, we offer up to 2 weeks’ vacation credit at our onsite produce stand, or the opportunity to pick up a make-up box.

Comments from past CSA members:
“We absolutely loved being a part of CSA and receiving delicious fruits and veggies every week. Our weekly box contributed to us eating healthier foods and experimenting with new recipes. We cannot say enough good things about this program. Thanks for all your hard work!”
“Just wanted to say, the produce has been AMAZING this year and I’ve been so pleased with the quality as well as variety while also somehow keeping my ‘staples’ like tomatoes, lettuce, and potatoes stocked. I could not be happier. I use or share with my neighbor, absolutely everything and nothing goes to waste. I definitely want to be on your list for next year and I’ve told a ton of people about your farm. A+++!”
“Thank you so much for all your hard work. It was delightful to receive garden fresh produce every week, and also to be introduced to some things I had never before eaten. I used several of your recipes, and loved them. It was obvious that some care was taken to provide variety, and not too much of any one thing.”
“I always enjoy my CSA baskets! I look forward to each week and planning my menus around the delicious, fresh produce. I am happy this is part of our community!”
“Thank you so much for a great year! With the horrible spring weather to start things out, you still managed to provide the very best top notch boxes for us, which was quite a feat! And through these COVID years, especially with all the kids involved, you hung in there and excelled.”
