Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a partnership between farmers and families and a way to become a member of a food community.
A Waxwing CSA subscription is a commitment to supporting local growers, eating well, experiencing a farm first hand, learning what’s in season, and exploring with cooking. It will connect you and your family to small scale agriculture and your local food economy in a deep and meaningful way.
We love growing for the people in our community, and it is through your support that we are able to provide you such high quality, sustainably grown produce. In choosing one of our CSA options, you choose to connect with our farm and us, your farmers, and we deeply value the opportunity to know and grow for you and your families.
CSA option 1: “Market Style” on farm weekly pick up
This CSA option is great for people who feel able to consistently come to weekly pickup and who enjoy having the surprise of what we harvest for you each week. We are known for our awesome garden salad mix, a wide array of diverse crops, and offering you things that go well together.
How it works: Every Tuesday afternoon, your freshly harvested veggies are displayed in our stand and a list is posted with what to take that day. Each pick up typically includes six to eight vegetables, with specific options and mix and match to help suit varying tastes. Our “take one- leave one” swap basket is available as well, and while we can’t guarantee what is in it, this allows for some additional flexibility and surprise. Instead of a weekly email, we will be sending out quarterly Farm Updates with news from us, and lots of great recipes with your CSA veggies in mind!
* Your market style CSA membership includes access to our u-pick flower patch! Once the flowers are blooming, we welcome you to come into the patch each week and pick a beautiful bouquet to bring home.
* Missed pickup/vacation: If you miss a pickup, we will automatically give you $25 in credit to use when the farmstand is open on Wednesdays, up to three times.
We do not offer refunds, credits or late pick up otherwise, but you are always welcome to let a friend pick up your share, or have us donate it if you know you cannot make it.
We offer two market style shares:
Full share: $475 for 20 weeks beginning May 28. Pickup is every Tuesday between 3:30-6:30pm at the farm.
Bi weekly share: $250 for every other week pickup, includes 10 pickups. Start dates are May 28 or June 4.
Spring Open House: We invite all CSA members to our spring member event! This is a special day on the farm where you have the opportunity to tour the farm with us, see how things are growing, discuss any questions regarding the season, and enjoy time together on the farm!
Ready to sign up? Please email us with your intention to join and we will confirm that space is available and schedule payment. All payments for our Market Style option must be received by May 1st to ensure your spot. (Our Market Style CSA option is FULL for the 2019 season. Email us if you would like to be on the signup list for next year!)
CSA Option 2: Farmstand CSA
This membership is highly flexible and convenient, and a great option if you would like ultimate flexibility and choice, while still deepening your relationship to our farm.
How it works: You pre-purchase the farmstand CSA value of your choice, and redeem your credit when our farmstand is open, on Wednesdays 9am-6pm, all season long. You keep track of your purchases in our notebook, and once your credit runs out, you can always buy more. This CSA option allows you to commit to eating well and supporting our farm, while having the flexibility to choose from what veggies are available, and not worry about missing a “pickup” day. You will also receive our weekly farmstand email, letting you know what we will be harvesting for the stand that week, and our quarterly Farm Update email with news from us and recipes to try!
*This option does not include u-pick flowers, but bouquets will often be available in the stand for purchase.
*Farmstand CSA members are invited to our Spring Open House event as well!
We offer four farmstand CSA values, each with a bonus:
$250 for $262.50 credit (5% savings)
$250 for $275 credit (10% savings) if payment is received by April 1st
$500 for $550 credit (10% savings)
$500 for $575 credit (15% savings) if payment is received by April 1st
*Farmstand credit will expire at the end of the year, or if purchased mid season, one year from the date of purchase.
Ready to sign up? Please email us and we will facilitate payment.
In joining our CSA you become an integral part of our farm. We can’t wait to grow for you!
