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 relationship with our farm, and food grown personally and with integrity. It is a commitment to 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 “swap basket” is available for additional flexibility. Plus, we send out quarterly Farm Updates with news from us, and lots of great recipes with your CSA veggies in mind!
We offer multiple market style shares, and pickup is always Tuesday between 3:30-6:30pm at the farm.
Sign up by March 1st for our Early Bird Special pricing! Full share, Full season receive $20 off your share.

* Your market style CSA memberships include 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 flex days: If you miss a pickup, we will automatically give you $26 in credit to use when the farmstand is open (Wednesday and Saturday), 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.
Farm Open Houses: We look forward to hosting our CSA members at our spring and fall events! These are special days on the farm where you have the opportunity to tour the farm with us, see how things are growing and changing, and enjoy time together on the farm. Since we couldn’t have these in 2020, we have our fingers crossed that these can resume this year!
Ready to sign up? Please email us with your intention to join and we will confirm that space is available and schedule payment. Our market style CSA fills up every year, so do sign up early if you wish to join us.
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. Farmstand CSA memberships may be purchased anytime in the year!
How it works: You pre-purchase the farmstand CSA value of your choice, and redeem your credit when our farmstand is open, Wednesdays 9am-5pm and Saturday 10am-2pm, all season long. (Spring- early Winter) 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 receive our weekly farmstand email, letting you know what we will be harvesting for the stand that week, and our quarterly Farm Updates with news from us and recipes to try!
We offer two Farmstand CSA values, each with a bonus:
$250 to $499 credit purchased receives additional 5% credit
$500 and up credit purchased receives additional 10% credit
*This option does not include u-pick flowers, but bouquets are often available in the stand for purchase with your credit.
*Your farmstand CSA membership includes the ability to request a custom packed box for pickup at the stand if you need it!
*Farmstand CSA members are invited to our Farm Open House events as well!
*Farmstand credit will expire at the end of the year, or if purchased mid season, one year from the date of purchase.
