We offer FOUR different share options:

Please make sure you read and agree to our CSA Membership Agreement, and also review our CSA Member Handbook if you decide to sign up for a CSA Share with us. The member handbook is also helpful for anyone visiting the farm to read, as it contains important safety information.

A initial $100 deposit is required to reserve a share (unless you plan to pay with SNAP/HIP) and payments in full are appreciated. 2022 sign-ups will open in the fall.

Low-income shares are offered at a discounted rate in an effort to keep our produce accessible to everyone in the community, and are subsizied by community donations to our Farm Share Fund. They can be paid for via SNAP/HIP, or by installments. Low income shares require a separate application.

P1020312 Regular share - $595 / Low-income - $475

A regular share usually feeds a small family, couple or the lone vegetable enthusiast. The photo to the left represents a sample of what you might fit into a regular size bag plus one "out-of-the-bag" winter squash. The photo was taken during a late-September distribution. We typically have at least one out-of-the-bag item (meaning you don't have to fit that item in your bag) for much of season, depending on our vegetable supply.



P1020313Large shares - $775 / Low-income - $620

A large share is suitable for larger families or those who eat a lot of vegetables and/or want to preserve a portion for the winter. The photo to the left represents a sample of what you might fit into a large bag plus one "out-of-the-bag" winter squash. 


Part-time Shares - $335 / Low-income - $270

These are intended for folks who are might be away for part of the season or have a hard time making it to the farm every week, but otherwise enjoy the amount of food they get per week in a Regular Share. This option allows you to come fill a regular share bag for any ten weeks of the 22 week season.


Natural Roots Gift Card Option

These are intended for folks who find that a regular share is just too much food for their needs, but still want to be a commited member of the farm. This option gives you the most flexibility, but you pay our full retail price for each item. This option does not guaruntee that all produce will be avaialble for purchase every week. During lean times, in the event of poor crop yields, times of bad weather etc. we will prioritize shareholders first, so if you are looking for consistent veggies, please sign up for a share!

You-pick opportunities

You may also enjoy our you-pick crops, which include some perennial herbs right up near the CSA barn, plus peas, beans, flowers, raspberries and blueberries down in the main field. You may pick these once a week when they are in season, and you can come to pick whenever it suits you.

Connection to the community

Each distribution offers a great opportunity for connecting with friends and neighbors. Many families come and stay for hours. Kids love to climb the pine tree near the distribution barn, splash in the shallows of the river, watch the horses at work, and race to the berry patch together. Our occasional festivals and gatherings are joyful celebrations that are a delight for all ages.

Connection with the land

Our farm is truly a beautiful place. A wooden footbridge leads over the South River to the rolling pastures, lush fields, and the light-dappled forest beyond. The farm is a haven for wildlife, farm life, and human life as well. By becoming a shareholder you can help to preserve and enrich this treasured resource of our community.

Bountiful Harvests

We are blessed with the opportunity to cultivate some of the finest cropland in West County. On our rich bottomland we grow a plethora of delicious, nourishing vegetables. Tender salad greens, herbs, and spicy radishes whet our appetites in June for the bounty that soon follows, so that before long your bag will be heavy with beautiful, vital food for you and your family each week until well past the first autumn frost. Some crops make brief or periodic appearances during the season, and others are steady performers throughout.
