the haps about your farm membership
What’s in a share? We offer 8-10 veggies, fruits and/or herbs each week. For 2-5 of the items, you'll usually have a choice. See sample shares from our 2016 season here.
As a shareholder, you'll pick up your share each week at your pickup location. We set up farmer's market style, and provide instructions and choices about what to take. We don't pack boxes or bags for you.
Choose a full or half share: Full shares pick up a share once per week for $675; half shares pick up every other week for $340.
Our 2017 CSA season is 22 weeks, from late May through late October.

*Returning shareholders: Note that we're hosting the Brookland pickup on Tuesday (instead of Thursday) and shifting the hours: it'll be 5:30-7pm (instead of 5-6:30pm).
**Note that shareholders who pick up on-farm receive boxed shares, rather than the market-style pickup model, but we can still offer you the same produce choices as other shareholders: just reply to our weekly CSA email within 48 hours of pickup time to let us know which items you'd like in your box.
