Frequently Asked Questions
What is CSA?
CSA stands for community supported agriculture and refers to programs in which customers partner directly with farms to receive food throughout the year. Usually, customers pay for a share of produce at the beginning of the year, providing capital to a local farm during the part if the season when it is most needed. In exchange, the farm provides its members produce throughout the season.
Why Choose CSA?
There are so many benefits to joining a CSA program! Here are just a few:
- Getting to know your farmer and how your veggies are being grown
- Freshness - usually we harvest the day before or the day of delivery
- Discount from farmers market prices
- Delivery to your door
- Learn to eat seasonally and try new vegetables
- Recipes will be provided in our weekly email newsletter
Can I join the CSA program late?
If we still have spots available, we are happy to prorate share prices. Contact us for more information!
Can you deliver to me? I do not live in Hyde Park or Morrisville.
Unfortunately we cannot deliver CSA shares to customers outside of our delivery area at this time. However, we do provide a limited number of shares for pickup at the Morrisville Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
What do I do if I'm out of town for a week?
If possible, we recommend making accommodations to have a friend or family member receive your share while you are out of town. Please contact us with any questions!
Is my home in your delivery area?
We deliver to Morrisville and Hyde Park. We also share a delivery route with Fat Chance Farm, so if you are not sure if you are in our area, check out this map. We deliver CSA shares to Route A, shaded in orange.
Can I make substitutions to my weekly share?
One of the benefits of joining a CSA is learning to eat seasonally. Therefore you may receive vegetables you haven’t tried before or do not prefer. We are a very small farm, so we can’t guarantee that we will have substitutions available, but we do try to include recipes for unfamiliar vegetables in our weekly email newsletter! Feel free to contact us if you don’t know what to do with a specific vegetable and we will do our best to provide recipes!
