Our CSA card is just like a gift card so you can buy a lot one week and a little the next, whatever works for you. You can take weeks off, you can go on vacation and don't have to worry about missing your share for the week.

-Members enjoy priority on low stock crops and get access to our Online Store 1 day earlier than the general public.

-Exclusive farm tours, gardening tips, and other events.

Additional Info:

-Members are strongly encouraged to attend our "get to know you" farm tour in May. This tour will allow us to meet all our wonderful members and for you to see where your food comes from! 

-Members have the option of supplying us with 2 reusable bags (from home or purchase Deep Hollow Farm totes) to pack their online orders into throughout the season. If you don't supply us with bags we will pack your online orders in biodegradable shopping bags.

More Information:

In the beginning and end of the growing season the produce selection and quantity will be limited.

Our season starts slowly around May with limited vegetables such as radishes, salad greens, and spinach. By the summer we will have everything from beets and carrots, to kale and cucumbers, to peppers and tomatoes. Finally in November, the season will wind down and finish with more greens and root crops.

You will probably use less money from your CSA card in the beginning of the season and more in the peak season during summer and fall. As you might imagine, certain crops might not be available some weeks depending on the weather and other variables. In addition, please note that we don't grow some crops like corn, melons, winter squash and potatoes.

We hope to see you soon!

What is a CSA?

 

A model in which members pay for a season's worth of farm fresh produce up-front. Becoming a CSA member gives you, our friends, family, and community the opportunity to support a local, sustainable farm and small business while gaining direct access to fresh, nourishing produce. By supporting us early in the season, you are investing in the hard work that we (your farmers!) put in throughout the growing season.
