Community Supported Agriculture
A CSA has become a popular way for customers to buy seasonal, local produce directly from their farmer.
Customers pay at the beginning of the season for 22 weeks of seasonal produce! This upfront payment helps the farmer buy seeds and materials for the season and in return customers get a weekly share of fresh, local, seasonal produce.
Our CSA consists of nutritious produce grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides.
Our CSA runs for 22 weeks from June-October and consists of 5-7 Items plus an Herb per week.
Each pickup site will also have a trade box of produce, allowing members to trade out items
an example share: one bunch of carrots, one bunch kale, 1/2 pound of arugula, one pint of cherry tomatoes, one bunch of scallions, 3 summer squash, one bunch of basil and one bunch of beets
Members will also receive weekly share announcements the day before pickup, including recipes, preservation/storage techniques, farm events and more!
Our members are a valued part of our community and are always invited to our potlucks, volunteer days and events!
We also offer Weekly, monthly or quarterly payment plans available upon request
a single share is $450 = $20.45 per week
Whitelock Community Farm offers a reduced rate and weekly installment payment plan for those qualifying for federal food assistance such as SNAP (EBT) and WIC.
