FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • What does CSA stand for?

  • CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.

  • How does a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) work?

  • CSA is a method of purchasing fresh produce directly from a local farmer. A customer joins a CSA by purchasing a share of that farm’s produce in advance, prior to the start of the season. In return, the CSA members receive a weekly box of seasonal produce from the farm and an opportunity to know your farm and farmer through CSA newsletters. CSA members will receive their weekly box of produce at local pick up locations.

  • How much does a CSA share cost?

  • The cost of a CSA share is $550 if you pay by cash/check. $565 for debit/credit cards due to the payment processing fee.

  • How do I sign up for a CSA share?

  • Please fill out the form below to sign up for your share. To pay, you can either mail in cash or a check, or you can pay using a debit or credit card through our online ordering system.

  • What are the dates for the CSA?

  • Our CSA will offer weekly seasonal boxes every Tuesday, from June 18th - October 15th.

  • How many boxes will be given throughout the season?

  • Our CSA includes 18 boxes of local, seasonal produce.

  • How much produce will be included in a box?

  • Each CSA box includes between 8-12 diverse, seasonal vegetables.

  • What are some of the vegetable we will be receiving throughout the season?

  • Each CSA box includes vegetables that are in season during the week you receive them. Boxes may include: garlic, onions, beets, dill, carrots, squash, green beans, cilantro, eggplant, lettuce, leeks, rosemary, radishes, celeriac, kale, swiss chard, turnips, basil, bell peppers, kohlrabi, tomatoes, and more! Check out everything we grow here.

  • How will I eat all these vegetables?

  • If the idea of eating so many vegetables seems overwhelming, have no fear. Each week we will offer a newsletter with recipes and suggestions of what to do with your produce. We also offer a large recipe directory on our website, found here.

  • What if I cannot pick up my share?

  • We do not provide credits or refunds for shares that are not picked up. If you are not able to pick up your share, you must make special arrangements with the farm by the Sunday evening prior to your CSA pick up. There are several options available to you if you know you will be missing a pick up:

  1. You may have an alternative person pick up your share for you. The farm does not need to be notified of this arrangement, but you will be responsible for explaining how pick up works (CSA rules, sign-in sheet, etc.)

  2. You may contact the farm in advance and arrange to have your CSA share donated to a local food pantry in the Green Bay area.

  3. You can arrange to receive a make up box to your pick up site on a different week, giving you two boxes in one week. The make up box will not be the same as the box you missed, as produce availability changes seasonally.

  4. You may cancel your pick up for the week you are not available.

**Again, we do not provide credits or refunds for shares that are not picked up.**

  • Are there rules and responsibilities to being a CSA member?

  • Yes, all CSA members will receive a CSA email, prior to the start of the season, containing a member handbook that clearly explains all rules and responsibilities for both members and farmers. Here is our handbook for the 2019 season:
