Our Farm's CSA

Community Supported Agriculture or CSAs are a way for people to become more engaged with where their food comes from. It also helps farm sustainability. Payments made to the farm in the winter and spring help us pay for seeds, labor, and other costs during the beginning of the growing season. In return, CSA members are ensured a share of the harvest during the season at a reduced cost.

Our CSA gets first priority when we distribute our food. If we have a limited supply or harvest we always save it for the CSA!

We offer other benefits to joining the CSA too. Learn more about our CSA below!

 

How It works

We offer vegetable, egg and meat shares year-round during two main CSA share seasons (Summer & Winter) and one short fall season. We have two main types of shares (depending on pick up location):

Free Choice Shares – choose your produce from our weekly selection at the store or market.

  • Summer, Fall & Winter Pick Ups: Our Farm Store in Raynham, MA
  • Summer Pick Ups: Farmers' Markets we attend - our summer markets are posted here!
  • Winter Pick Ups: Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers’ Market & Somerville Winter Farmers' Market

Pre-Packed Shares – a varied selection of our seasonal produce delivered each week.

  • Summer & Fall Pick Ups: Somerville, MA
