What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program in which individuals buy into the farm by purchasing a share. In turn, they receive a bountiful selection of fresh produce every week throughout the season. Shares are purchased before the start of the growing season. This allows farmers to focus on growing and delivering the highest-quality, best-tasting fruits and vegetables for shareholders in the summer.
Buying a farm share is a great opportunity to eat seasonally and try different foods. You will receive the best of what a local harvest has to offer, and experience the fun of letting the season form your menu.
Most importantly, a CSA program establishes a relationship between a farm and the local community. In Japan, the name for CSA is “teikei”, meaning, in a sense, to put the farmer’s face on the food.
What can I expect
in my share?
The contents of your share will vary with the seasonality of the produce. Full and Half Shares receive the same amount as each other, Half Share members just pick up every other week instead of every week.
Your weekly share will typically include one or more of each of these:
•alliums (garlic, onion or leeks)
•bunched greens (chard, collard greens or kale)
•“fruits” of some kind (tomatoes, snap peas, summer squash etc)
•fresh herbs (basil, parsley, cilantro, dill, thyme, etc)
•roots (beets, turnips and carrots)
other additions like salad greens, strawberries, broccoli, melons, and sweet potatoes will fill out the share as they become seasonally available.
Check out our About page to see a complete list of the fruits and vegetables Blue Spring Farm grows.
When and where
do I pick up
The first CSA distribution typically occurs in the first or second week of June. We will contact everyone by e-mail as the day approaches. When registering for the CSA, you will have options for pick-up days.
Wednesdays 2pm - 6:30pm
What does a
On-Farm pick-up will be set up for you to easily gather your produce. Your produce will be pre-packed and brought out of the cooler upon your arrival; some weeks, you’ll also be able to select individualized items (heirloom tomatoes, melons, flower bouquets, etc). We will also have surplus with extras for sale on the farmstand sometimes.
What do I do if
I'm running late
or miss a pickup?
If you know that you will be out of town during your pick-up, please let us know the week prior. You can either:
1) ask a friend or family member to pick up your share while you're gone. OR
2) request to temporarily switch to the alternative pick up day that week
If something unexpected comes up, please call or text us and we will hold your share until the following day.
How do I pay
for my share?
There are sign-up and payment options of all kinds - from snail mail to Venmo. We recognize that a CSA share is a big commitment, and want to offer convenient and approachable payment options. We do ask for a $200 reservation fee, to be paid upfront with your registration, with the remaining balance paid by July 1st, 2021.
