2017 CSA Shares

Our pricing scheme is a bit unique. Usually, farmers will charge their CSA members around $25 a week for a share that contains about $30 worth of produce, with discounts for purchasing the whole season in advance. We are experimenting a bit with our CSA this year, and invite you to join the data. Our CSA will have 30 shares for sale, 30 shares for redistribution, and some work trade shares. We are asking the members of our CSA to pay $40 a week for about $30 worth of produce, including mushrooms. We will take that $15 and distribute an equal amount of produce through community partnerships with those already working in resource redistribution. Also, we ask that those members who are able to pay one lump sum for the season actually contribute a bit more, so we can offer bigger discounts for those with less.
This is what it looks like:

Each CSA season is 15 weeks long
Whole share delivery is every week
Half share delivery is every other week

Summer Share
May 8, 2017 – August 15, 2017
whole share: $600
half share: $320

Fall/Winter Share
September 11, 2017 – December 18, 2017
whole share: $600
half share: $320

Whole Season
whole share: $1250
half share: $650

Work Trade Share
We are looking for a consistent team of 4 to 6 people for a harvesting crew.
Right now we think that will look like one 5 hour morning shift a week.
In exchange for your time we offer a share of produce, including mushrooms, that week.
