There will be no changes to our pricing or share structure for our 2014 CSA shares! Thanks to the support of our members and a good growing season in 2013, we are in a position to maintain the same pricing as last year, as well as offer an additional work share.
We will continue to offer 3 different CSA shares. All shares are sized for a 2-adult, or 2 adult + 1 child family, depending on your veggie consumption rate. If you have a larger family, have teenagers, or eat a large quantity of fruits and veggies, we suggest ordering additional shares. We’ll package them together for you, so you won’t have to deal with additional packaging materials.
- Spring Bookend Share- $40, begins as soon as the weather allows, ends May 17. Likely 3 to 7 weeks, but spring weather is fickle. Mostly salad greens, radishes, peas, and other cool-weather crops. Pickup will be at the farm Saturdays from 8:00-noon, or via other special arrangement until the Culver Farmer’s Market opens, when the location will change to the Farmers’ Market.
- Main Season Share – $275, a summer-only share, running 16 weeks, from May 24 through September 6 (Memorial Day weekend through the weekend after Labor Day). The share will consist of a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs designed to support all of your fresh, local, seasonal produce needs for each week. Pickup will be available at the Culver Farmer’s Market on Saturdays from 8:00-noon, or at our farm on Tuesday evenings from 5-7.
- Fall Bookend Share- $100, begins September 13, and runs until weather and supplies end the harvest, most likely around Thanksgiving. The fall bookend share will consist of more salad greens, radishes, kale, cabbage, any fall cool-season crops that we succeed with (tends to be iffy in northern Indiana), and late-season staples and storage crops like potatoes, rutabaga, turnips, pumpkins and winter squash, etc. All the things that make fall yummy. Pickup for will be on Saturdays, at the Culver farmers’ market until the end of the market season (usually the second Saturday in October), and on our farm after the market season.
- Work Shares- 2-3ish hours of help at the farm per week, running any week in which you work and there is a harvest available (ie, spring, main, or and fall). This year we are offering 2 work shares – one on Friday afternoons/evenings, and the other on Tuesday evenings. The work will mostly consist of weeding and harvest help, but exact tasks will be negotiable and depend on our needs in a given week. We’ll do our best to make the work varied and interesting. Availability will vary, and be offered only via interview. Share size will be the same as a regular purchased share.
Payment can be made via check, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover or PayPal (yes, you can use a credit card via PayPal). If you can pay in person, cash is also acceptable. A 10% discount is available for shares paid for before January 13. A 5% discount is available after January 13 for 2013 CSA members who are continuing in 2014.
