We are now taking sign-ups for our 2019/2020 Winter CSA. This Winter we will be doing a 12 week box program that will start December 5th and will go through the first week of March 2020 (skipping Christmas Week). We sold out early last season so if you want to make sure you are part of the program, sign up now by filling out the form below. For more information, scroll down to read frequently asked questions, and also there are images of each box from last season so you can see what each box looked like!
What is a CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. This is an opportunity for the community to share, support, and connect directly to a farm. By signing up for a CSA you are subscribing to the harvest of a farm for the season and essentially buying a share of the harvest. There are roughly 9-12 items in the small boxes, and 11-14 items in the large boxes. However, depending on the harvest each week the number of items could change. You will pick-up your box each week directly from the farm on Thursdays from 3pm-6pm
We offer a weekly newsletter to all Winter CSA members that provides insight as to whats in the box, how to use unfamiliar items, and also a weekly recipe for inspiration on what to make out of your box. We collaborate with some local farms in the area which helps keep things fresh and while also allowing us to have a unique variety of Winter citrus that is feature in almost every box
How much does the Winter CSA cost?
We are offering 2 different box sizes, small and large. The small box the cost is an upfront cost of $300, which amounts to a $25 box per week. The large box is an upfront cost of $480, which amounts to a $40 box per week. We are offering split payment plan options, however if it is possible for you to pay upfront it is much appreciated.

What kind of items will be in the box and how many items per box?

How, when, and where do I pick up my Weekly CSA box?
The CSA pick-up window will be on Thursdays from 3pm until 6pm at the farmstand. During that window there will also be other, dry good items for sale if you wanted to purchase some extra goodies to your weekly grab (items such as cheese, eggs, beans, honey...etc.). These items can only be purchased by those who are a part of our CSA program.
Why do the CSA?
By signing up for the CSA you are ensuring that your household will be filled with local, seasonal produce all winter long. It's also a way for us to know that you are committed to our farm throughout the season and gives us an idea of how much we need to produce every week. The CSA helps us stay connected to our community throughout the seasons and make the most out of our land.

Below you can see what last year’s boxes looked like. Along with being able to offer and grow such diversity throughout the Winter, each week we offer a weekly newsletter and recipe for inspiration on how to use some of the more uncommon items found in your box.
Last year was our first time doing a Winter CSA, so we are very excited for this upcoming Winter season as we learned a lot from last year and cannot wait to improve this season!
