In the winter/spring you purchase a share from the farm, and during the summer and fall you a receive a weekly selection of fresh vegetables. As a CSA member you support local farming by sharing in the ups and downs of farming: depending on the year, some crops might do better than others.
You can choose from 2 share sizes: The Full Share and the Half Share. On average the full share feeds 3-4 people and the half share feed 1-2 people.
You can also choose between 2 durations - 15 weeks and 18 weeks. Both options start at the beginning of June. The 15 week option ends in Mid September and the 18 week option ends 3 weeks later in October.

Once the last regular season pick up is finished in Oct, we offer an 2 additional week extension for $50 for the last 2 weeks of October. These 2 pick ups will be on Tuesday only but are available to both half share and full shares. There is separate sign up form for this and you can sign up anytime until Sept or until we are sold out.
WHAT TO EXPECT ?
The weekly selection varies depending on what’s in season, with 8-12 of the following vegetables offered each week for full share and 6 – 12 for half share:Arugula, Basil, Beans, Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Chard, Cilantro, Corn, Cucumbers, Dill, Eggplant, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Onions, Parsley, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Radish, Spinach, Squash, Tomatoes, Turnips, Zucchini.
REGULAR PICK UP AND PRE-PACKED PICK UP
For the Wolseley pick up there are 2 options for picking up your vegetables: regular or prepacked. For the regular pick up you go down a line and pack your own veggies. This allows you some choices. For example each week you will typically have the choice of: lettuce, spinach, chard or kale. For the Prepacked option the veggies are already packed so you just show up and pick them up without going through the line. For the pre-packed option we choose what goes into your box for you and there is an extra $25 charge for that for the summer.
For the farm pick up there is only the pre-packed option , but there is no extra charge.

CSA Pick-up Locations and Times
You can select one of two locations to pick up your CSA share:
At the farm, each share is packed for you (we choose the vegetables) and is left in a bin for you in our wash house
2020 CSA start and end dates
At the CSA pick up we have one person working at the CSA table and one at the market. The market table is set up to display the veggies we have that week whereas the CSA table is set up to be more convenient for CSA members to pick up.
There are sometimes differences in what you find each week at the market and in the CSA. For example, we will plan to bring a few cabbages to market each week, but not for CSA each week. Also because the amount of CSA customers is much larger than our market customers, when a new crop is just starting to produce and we have a small amount ready to harvest but not enough for the CSA we often bring it to the market and wait a week until there’s more to harvest for the CSA.
Although the selection at market and CSA is often different, providing vegetables for our CSA is our first priority and only bring to the market the surplus of vegetables that we don’t need for the CSA.
If you can’t make a pick up we ask that you send someone in your place to pick up for you. If you forget and want to make up a missed a pick up we ask that you come between 630-7 on another pick up day (either Tuesday or Thursday) and we’ll make sure you get plenty of veggies.
Because Half shares and Full shares are different harvest and we only harvest enough for the people picking up we can’t accommodate half shares picking up on Tuesday or Full shares picking up on Thursday. You can however come after 6:30 if it’s not your pick up day to collect veggies
