By joining our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program you become a member and own a "share" of the year's harvest. CSA "shareholders" pay for their produce before the start of the growing season, which helps the farm with start-up funds to purchase seeds, and supplies. As a member of a CSA, you know get to know your farmer and exactly where and how your food has been grown!
What will I receive as part of my share?
--> Wheelbarrow Farm's CSA members receive a pre-packed basket of freshly harvested and washed vegetables. We aim for 10-12 seasonal items in each basket, which is packed the morning of delivery. Most items have been harvested that very morning, so you are receiving the freshest vegetables possible! We grow over 40 different types of vegetables, so you are guaranteed a wide variety throughout the season. Some baskets will also include fruit such as rhubarb, strawberries and raspberries.
Visit our instagram or facebook page to see what members received in their baskets this year!
--> Members will receive an email reminder a few days before each pick up, listing the items they can expect in their basket so they can start meal planning. They will also receive recipes and vegetable storage tips tailored for that week's basket.
How often and how many baskets will I receive in a season?
-->> Vegetables are provided bi-weekly (every other week) from late May until early November. You will receive 13 baskets in a season.
