What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Our CSA program will span 16 weeks starting in June and run through September.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between our farm and you as our customer. By selling memberships in advance of the growing season, CSAs reduce the burden of up-front costs for the farmer. Your membership fees provide a degree of cash flow to purchase seed and fertilizer, repair buildings and equipment and pay weekly labor bills before the season starts. This is a huge benefit to farmers, especially those growing produce, who otherwise have no cash flow and need to work on a budget dictated by the previous year’s harvest during the winter and spring months.
Seasonal farm grown produce planned for the 2021 growing season may include:
Dutch Variety Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, English Cucumbers, Mini Cucumbers, Basil & other Herbs, Beets, Kale, Arugula, Lettuce, String Beans, Sugar Snap Peas, Cherries, Strawberries, Summer Squashes, Blueberries, Blackberries, Peaches, Plums, Nectarines, Sweet Corn, Broccoli, Onions, Melons, Carrots, Peppers, Apples, Pumpkins, various Winter Squashes & more!
CSAs are something that many farms offer, but don’t always cater to the participants (i.e. – loading a weekly pickup with excess produce that would otherwise end up in the compost pile). We aim to change that by maximizing the diversity of our produce offerings each & every week!
How does the March Farm CSA work?
Members who have purchased a “share” will be required to visit the farm store or participating hospital location once per week starting in June to pick-up their box of freshly picked seasonal berries, fruits & vegetables.
Members who pick up at the farm store location can choose to do so on either Wednesday or Thursday. Please make this decision carefully as we request that you pick up on the same day each week. Members picking up at one of the participating hospital locations are required to pick-up on Thursdays ONLY.
Why Join the March Farm CSA?
- Guaranteed weekly fresh picked produce packages through the summer & into the fall.
- Members only specials & crop surplus privileges.
- Increased knowledge of how your food is grown & the development of a relationship with the farmers growing it.
- Extra incentive to plan & prepare healthy meals since you’ve already paid for the food with recipes and inspirational ideas shared weekly.
- Special privileges throughout the season reserved for CSA members only.
- Support local by keeping a portion of your food budget close to home, & ultimately contributing to the continuation of agriculture & a family run farm for generations to come.
$550.00 ~ ONLY 125 available.
Our CSA ‘Full Share’ option will provide a variety of produce to help feed 4 to 5 people on a weekly basis. Great effort will be taken to provide the maximum seasonally available diversity of berries, fruits & vegetables in each weeks share.
Members will always receive the full value of their share over the course of the season; likely quite a bit more as each weeks share will always be generously weighed/bunched & any crop surplus will be shared with members free of charge.
