CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is an opportunity for customers to develop a close relationship with an individual farm while gaining a share in the farm’s harvest.


Farms offering CSA’s for Summer 2021 

Please contact farms directly for more information.  A complete list of all farms offering CSA shares is also available through Seacoast Harvest, including descriptions of each of their offerings and programs. If you have SNAP and would like to learn more about how to use your EBT card to purchase a CSA, contact our program coordinator, Morgan Morani, at [email protected] If you are a farm and are not listed and would like to be listed please contact Morgan. If you are listed and would like to add a photo email a photo to Morgan.

CSAs are organized by county and style below alphabetically. Traditional style CSAs are similar to a subscription box of fruits, vegetables, meats, etc. Debit-style CSAs are similar to receiving a store credit to the farm of your choosing that can be used for the season.

Governor Dale Farm

Description: Full Share-This is a full season commitment. You will receive (pick up at the farm) a share of fresh vegetables once a week, for 18 weeks, starting mid June until mid October. Each week the shares will differ and feature new, fresh items from the garden. It will be a diverse bounty to complement a few meals. You will have a chance to “eat with the seasons” and to try unique heirloom varieties you won’t find at the grocery store.  Payment is required IN FULL no later than May 1st, 2021. This helps the farm with operational costs at a lean time of year.

“Opt-in” Share-You are not required to give any upfront payment, nor are you locked in for the full season. This option gives folks the opportunity to opt-in week to week. Starting in June you will receive a weekly email detailing what the share will contain for the upcoming week. You will have the opportunity to OPT-IN. Simple. If you do not want a share do not reply. If you want a share, reply. The instructions will be in the email. Our correspondence will look something like, “Farmer Josh, I’m in for a share this week.” To which you will receive a response of, “Order received, thanks so much! Your share will be available to pick up at the barn. I’ve been eating cherry tomatoes like candy!”

Work Share-This is a full season commitment and a fun one. This opportunity is geared toward locals looking to eat well and get their hands dirty this summer. Helping hands are crucial during the summer to get big planting, weeding, and harvest projects done. Join the effort, reap the harvest, feel good! You will be required to average 4 hours/week of field work during the CSA schedule (mid June to mid October). You will receive a Full Share and be entitled to one pick-your-own bouquet from the flower garden each week. Additional perks like eating string beans, fresh cukes, and cherry tomatoes off the vine will most certainly exist as well, no doubt. I understand vacations and scheduling conflicts will occur so please do not stress. It’s an average of 4 hours a week. I am flexible. We will make this work. During the season I work in the field 7 days/week and am willing to plan around your schedule so you can fulfill your hours. Both independent tasks (hand weeding the flower garden while butterflies dance around you) as well as team projects (planting 750lbs of potatoes) will occur. We will make this a great growing season, together!

Choosing a CSA

 

Community Supported Agriculture or CSA is a partnership between consumers and farmers in which members buy shares of the farm’s harvest and enjoy regular allotments of food throughout the growing season. For farmers, this provides much needed cash flow for the beginning of the season, as well as a ready market and community of supporters. Shareholders join in the risks of the growing season but reap the benefits of the harvest. Each CSA farm has its own pricing structure, disbursement schedule, and some have work requirements.

Is a CSA right for you?

  • Do you like to eat lots of fresh vegetables?
  • Are you interested in trying new things?
  • Do you cook at home at least 4 times a week?

Questions to ask the farmers:

  • How much produce is in a share?
  • What vegetables (and fruits) are to be expected?
  • How many weeks is the share for?
  • When and where are shares picked up or delivered?
  • Are the shares pre-packed, or do members pack their own
  • What type of payment schedule is expected?
  • What happens if a pick-up is missed?
  • Does the CSA offer extra add-ons (eggs, dairy, meat, seafood, flowers)?
  • Is there a volunteer work requirement?
  • How long has the CSA been running?
