What’s a CSA?

CSA stands for “community-supported agriculture.” Another name is “farm share.” You purchase a share in advance, which assures us a market for what we grow ahead of time. In return, we pack a beautiful box of our organic produce for you to enjoy each week during the summer and fall.

As a CSA member, you help us make a living and create local jobs while filling your own table with organic, nutritious food that is grown with love and care.

“Very flavorful, fresh produce. A CSA saves time, and introduced me to some veggies I had never eaten before. Wonderful people giving me a surprise package every week.”
— Rosemary P.

What will you get in our CSA?

SALAD: a selection of our head lettuces and ready-to-eat baby salad greens in every share so you can make delicious salads all week.

VEGGIES YOU KNOW AND LOVE: carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, scallions, peppers, zucchini, snap beans, herbs, and more

SEASONAL TREATS like strawberries, raspberries and sweet and tangy cherry tomatoes

RECIPES AND IDEAS for tasty but less-familiar veggies like bok choy, salad turnips, eggplant, and swiss chard

Read our archived weekly CSA newsletters for more details about what goes in the shares.

How many people will a share feed?

Our share is designed for two people who eat veggies regularly, a single person who eats lots of them, or a larger family that wants to try new veggies and might shop at the farmers’ market for more of what they like the best.

A typical share in early August might contain a mini head of lettuce, two pounds of carrots, 1/3 lb of lettuce mix. a bunch of basil, a head of bok choy, two cucumbers, a small eggplant, a sweet pepper, 3/4 lb of snap beans, and a zucchini.

A typical share in mid-September might include a large head of lettuce, a cucumber, a sweet pepper, 2 lb of tomatoes, a half-pint of cherry tomatoes, and a spaghetti squash.

Wise Acres produce was absolutely luscious. I loved picking up my box every week! I found the newsletter very helpful...the storage tips and especially the recipes...many of which I have incorporated into my menu of go-to dishes. I will see you next year for sure!

Is your share a good value?

Yes! For just $24 per week, you can enjoy a selection of premium organic veggies and fruit at their peak freshness, with the convenience of a quick pickup or delivery. CSA members share with us in the risk and reward of the season. In recognition of this, we aim to deliver a 5-10% bonus above and beyond the share's retail value over the course of the season, based on how our crops are doing.

How do I get my share every week?

Choose a pickup or delivery location that is right for you. All shares are delivered on Wednesday afternoons. Your box will be all packed up and ready to go, so pickup can be a quick and easy part of your day.

The first pickup day will be June 26 and the last one will be October 23 (18 weeks total).

If you will be away for a pickup day, you can have a friend or family member take your share, or, if you let us know before Wednesday, your share can be held at the farm for up to two days until you can come pick it up.

Click below to complete our online signup form. You have the option of paying online (3% fee applies) or mailing us a check.

Click here to sign up!

Payment in full or a $100 deposit will secure your share. If it is feasible for you, paying in full when you sign up helps cover our farm's early-season expenses and limits our peak-season administrative burden - thank you! If you make a deposit, your balance will be due one week before the first share delivery. You are welcome to make installments in the meantime.
