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 and meat shares year-round during two main CSA share seasons: Summer & Winter. We have a free choice* CSA share at our Farm Store in Raynham, MA.

*Free Choice Shares – choose your certified organic produce from our weekly selection at the farm store.
Full – 10 items* per week
Half – 5 items* per week

2019 CSA CHANGES: Starting Summer 2019, we are no longer selling our weekly Egg & Meat CSA Shares. To better meet the needs of our members, customers and the farm we are changing to a debit-style CSA option for sourcing non-vegetable farm products.
Our meat share is a debit-style CSA. Members pay for a share in advance and get a customizable card to use throughout the CSA season. Meat share members can pick up weekly or stock up a few times a season and choose from our selection of certified organic, pasture-raised, heritage pork, grass-fed beef and grass-fed lamb.
Our pasture-raised bone broths, stock & cooking lard is also available for shares.

Note on Chicken & Eggs: During the 2019 season we are taking a break from raising chickens. Poulet Rouge Broiler chickens may be available in the beginning of the summer and our heritage hens / roosters will be available at the end of the summer for 2019 meat shares. However, chicken will not be available the entire season. Similarly, meat share members can take eggs as part of their share when seasonally available in the spring.
Meat shares start at $500 and members get a bonus depending on their share size.
$500 credit, members get $50 bonus
$1,000 credit, members get $100 bonus
What share size do I pick? We recommend the following:
$500 share for individuals / families that eat meat occasionally
$1,000 share for individuals / families that cook meat regularly
PYo Produce, Herbs & Flowers!
Each year we work to offer new things to CSA members. Our summer vegetable CSA members get free access to our pick-your-own (PYO) section on the farm which includes:
medicinal / tea herbs
PYO is in addition to the best of our produce and a discount on our products that come with buying a share.
