Payments

2021 Share Price: sliding scale, $432, $576, or $720 for 24 weeks of fresh, local produce. This works out to be about $18, $24, or $30 per week. All members receive the same share, whichever point on the sliding scale is contributed.

By selling shares in advance of the growing season, a CSA reduces the burden of up-front costs for your local farmer. Your share fees provide us with money to purchase seed and supplies before the season starts, and ensures that our capital expenses are met up front so we don’t have to pass on the cost of financing. We appreciate your commitment to local, sustainable food sources and a living wage for its producers.

We believe that healthy, local produce should not be out of financial reach. We offer a sliding scale to try and keep access to locally grown, chemical-free produce economically inclusive. We ask our members to actively participate by deciding what they can contribute to our farm based on their financial situation. This includes household income (combined household incomes for those who split a share), and also considerations like home ownership, student loan or medical debt, retirement accounts/inheritance/investments, job security, etc. Ideally, all our CSA members would be contributing equivalent percentages of their income–we know we aren’t there yet. This is something we are still learning about and exploring, and we think that donating as much produce as we are able plays a large role in our farm’s ability to address food injustice in our region.

We encourage members who are able to pay their entire share cost at sign up to do so. As you know, we use payments from CSA members to cover the expenses of the coming season. A large portion of our expenses come as we order supplies in November and December.

We do not want the expense of a share with our farm to prevent anyone from signing up right away. This season we are offering a standardized payment plan. We ask that members contribute at least 20% of the cost of their share when they sign up. That’s $86, $115, or $144. Starting in January, you will receive email notification to send another 20% payment until the remainder of the share is paid (5 total payments, including initial payment at sign up). We are still happy to work with members who would like to arrange an alternative payment plan–just contact us! All payments are non-refundable beyond the second week of the season.

For the 2021 season, we are accepting cash and checks only. It’s okay with us if that means it’ll take a little longer for your payments to reach us. Sorry for the inconvenience.
