What’s a CSA?

CSA stands for “community-supported agriculture.” Some farms call it a “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 early fall.

Our CSA members help us grow our farm and create local jobs while filling their own tables with organic, nutritious food 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, snap beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, scallions, peppers, zucchini, 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 two pounds of carrots, a 1/3 pound bag of baby kale, a zucchini, a bunch of basil, a head of lettuce, a head of green garlic, a slicing cucumber,  1/2 pound of green beans, and a bunch of swiss chard.

A typical share in mid-September might include two pounds of tomatoes, a head of lettuce, a bunch of scallions, a 1/3 pound bag of baby arugula, a small melon, a sweet pepper, and a pint of cherry tomatoes.

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!
— Gerry G.

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 27, 2018, and the last one will be October 17, 2018. We will not be delivering shares on July 4th.

Flower Shares

We have been doing farmers' markets alongside Flywheel Flower's owner Carole for years and are excited to offer the beautiful organic/seasonal flowers she grows!  Our members that pick up at Tiller & Rye or get delivery in the Bangor area can sign up for a weekly bouquet to enjoy alongside our veggies. To select a flower share, complete our signup form and then follow the link to Flywheel Flower's CSA page.


How do I sign up & pay for my share?

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

Payment in full or a $100 deposit will secure your share. If it is feasible for you, your payment in full at signup helps with 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.
