We thought this spring-like day was the perfect moment to open signups for the 2015 CSA season! Not long ago it might have been hard to imagine that our spring greens are already growing and that some of the summer seeds are already in their germination flats, but spring is happening fast. A season of delicious local food is on the way, and it will be here before you know it!Prices are the same again this year. If you’re wondering how our prices are set, our growers determine a fair price for their vegetables each year at our annual winter growers meeting. They weigh the price they charge at market against the value of the consistent customer base our CSA provides, and they set a price that reflects that relationship. There’s no haggling or negotiating, just a lot of mutual gratitude and respect. Someday I’m sure we’ll have to raise prices to keep up with cost of living (because it’s important to us not just that we sell vegetables, but that we help our local farms run a sustainable business), but for now, we’re excited to offer subscriptions at the same old price thanks to our growers who love us!
2015 CSA Prices:
Half share – $350
Full share – $550
**Returning members from the 2013 or 2014 season take $20 off of the price if you send your payment/deposit by Wednesday, April 1!** This discount still applies if you change the size of your share from last time. Click the Sign Up Here tab above to reserve your share! If you’d like the CSA newsletter to go to more than one member of your household, please include any additional emails we need. As always, remember that the CSA payment is nonrefundable, since our growers will have already invested in the seeds and labor required to feed you for a season long before we see the produce. If you move, take a long vacation, or for some reason need to stop picking up, you are welcome to sell the remainder of your share to a neighbor/friend or donate the remainder for a family in need. We’re happy to work with you on that, but please remember that signing up is a (wonderful, delicious, community-building) commitment!
We’re so looking forward to spring! We’ll be in touch in the next couple months with exact start-end dates for the 20-week season, once we’ve seen what the early spring weather has in store for us. See you soon!
