CSA Boxes
2022 Signups are Now Open!

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Our Growing A Future CSA Boxes are the supporting arm of the School Farm Program. Each week for 14 weeks CSA members will receive a bushel box of fresh, clean, local and seasonal produce grown and harvested by students right here at the School Farm. Boxes will be available for pickup on Thursdays from 12 noon to 6 pm and members will receive weekly farm updates on produce. 

A few testimonials from our 2021 members:

"I really enjoyed the variety of produce and the unique items such as the fennel. The produce tasted great and kept us well supplied."
J Sherle

"The CSA box provides a connection between our food and us. And I love how Growing a Future School Farm is so flexible on picking up/dropping off vegetable boxes and farm visiting. The variety and quantity of the CSA box are far better than my expectations. I am really enjoying the fresh vegetables, fruits and even eatable flowers treat whole summer long!"

Your CSA Questions, Answered

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for "Community-Supported Agriculture." It's a partnership between a farm and its community. CSA members pay a subscription fee at the beginning of the growing season, which the school farm then uses to buy seeds and supplies. In return, the school farm harvests “the cream of the crop” for members and delivers it each week to a pick-up location. The CSA model creates a direct connection between farmers and the community.

What kinds of vegetables will I receive?

Each of the 14 weeks, you’ll receive the freshest vegetables and fruit in season. We grow over 30 types of fruit and vegetables and strive to provide a wide variety from week-to-week, so there’s always something you love and never too much of something you’re tired of.

Are your vegetables organic?

Yes, except in one important sense: we're not certified organic by the USDA. In the future, we would consider becoming certified, but for now, the paperwork and costs don't make sense. We rigorously follow organic practices on the farm: we use no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, we use no GMOs, we plant habitat for pollinators, and we use lots of compost to nourish the soil. You're welcome to visit the farm to see for yourself!

How do I join the CSA?

We offer many different ways to sign up, visit the above CSA Membership selection for options.

Can I join the CSA late or mid-season?

To ensure the highest quality and quantity of produce within each share, we have limited the number of 14 week shares in 2022 to twenty-five (25). These 25 shares are on a first come basis, so be sure to purchase early. We will have a farm store program available every Saturday for folks that would like to support the school farm, but can’t join a full CSA season!

What if I go out of town and have to miss a box?

Let us know no later than the Wednesday before your Thursday delivery day, and we'll hold your box and add $38 to your balance. You can spend this balance over time by ordering extras, or you can email us to request a double box for a future date.

What if I don't use all my credits by the end of the season?

Credits do not carry over from one season to the next.

Do you offer a smaller share?

At this time, no. But if you know someone else who's interested in a box, we do have several members who split their box with a friend or coworker, or who alternate delivery weeks.

What if I need to cancel my share?

If you're moving out of town or are dissatisfied with your membership for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible. We will issue a refund on a pro-rated basis.

I'm worried the CSA isn't right for me.

It might not be! Our CSA is a good fit for those who want to eat well and make fresh, organic fruits and vegetables a regular part of their day. CSA members value being connected to the school farm and supporting beginning student farmers in their community. If you're not a big vegetable eater or only want a few types of vegetables, you can visit the school farm on Saturday and buy what you need.
