Winter share distributions are every other week, (10 pickups in all) beginning in mid-late November and wrapping up by the end of April. Pickup times are flexible – you can come any time on any day during the pickup weeks as your schedule and driving conditions permit, though we suggest trying to set a schedule for yourself ahead of time. 

The share will be distributed out of the walk-in cooler attached to our CSA barn, which keeps storage veggies snug and cozy through the winter. The squash & sweet potatoes will come as a one-time initial distribution in November for you to store in your own home, and the rest will be available here.

The bi-weekly share includes: Winter Squash & Sweet Potatoes (30 lbs total for full shares, or 15 lbs. for half shares, distributed up front), plus 12 lbs per week for full shares and 6 lbs. per week for half shares of a mix of Cabbages, Carrots, Potatoes, Onions, Garlic, Beets, Celeriac, Kohlrabi, Parsnips, Turnips, Rutabaga, Daikon Radishes and Watermelon Radishes, plus an occasional bag of Popcorn. Greens will generally not be included, but are occasionally in late fall, and will sometimes be available in the retail cooler for sale.  

We are to committed to providing transparency to our members, and have our pricing reliably cover our costs each year. In considering ways to sustainably address our budget challenges, we’ve arrived at a new, tiered model of CSA share pricing. A initial $100 deposit is required to reserve a share (unless you plan to pay with SNAP/HIP) and payments in full are appreciated. 

Now, each share option has 3 different levels of financial commitment: 

Sustainer Pricing (The actual retail value of the CSA share). 

Standard Pricing (A 20-25% discount from the actual retail value of the CSA share)

Low Income Pricing (A 30-35% discount from retail value - Separate application is required, based on similar elegibility parameters for MA state assistance programs)

The Sustainer pricing option gives members with the means a chance to balance the farm’s income with those who pay at a reduced price. Beyond the Sustainer pricing level, members with the means are invited to pledge any denomination towards the farm that they feel inspired to offer.

Standard Pricing is the price we expect most members will choose to pay.

We do offer low income shares to those who are eligible - An additional application is required to determine eligibility. The cost of these low-income shares are eligible for Massachusetts’ SNAP / HIP program, making them more accessible than ever to low-income shareholders. They can also be paid for in installments for those who do not have SNAP funds. If you would like to apply for a low income share, please indicate this when you sign up, and we will provide you with the supplemental applicaton to apply for one!
