Farm Share

We’ll start taking sign-ups for the 2023 season in early January 2023. Check back then for details on how to register. We are thankful to say we always fill up fast! 

Are you interested in enjoying 100% organic-certified vegetables, learning how to cook with the seasons, and supporting local farmers?

Sign up for Deep Harvest’s Farm Share program (also known as Community Supported Agriculture or CSA) and receive weekly boxes of organic-certified vegetables, picked fresh the day you receive them. You’ll also get a weekly newsletter with creative recipes, farmy photos, and lots of info on local farm happenings and the inspiring world of sustainable agriculture.

We’re offering a 17-week summer program (June 6 through Sept 26) and 9-week fall share program (Oct 3 through Nov 28).

Share Sizes
Each season we provide two different share sizes to best fit your household’s needs.

Regular Shares  (8 items per week) are well suited to individuals or couples who enjoy cooking vegetables most meals or families who prepare veggies about four times a week. If you want to eat a healthier, more plant-based diet, go for a Regular Share. The two of us often use up a full CSA in just 2 or 3 meals, especially if we’re hosting dinner guests. Many customers tell us that having a plethora of produce in their fridge inspires them to cook and eat more healthfully than they would otherwise.

Petite Shares (5-6 items/week) are best for individuals, couples or small families who don’t have a super vegetable-centric diet, but still like having vegetables with a few weekly meals. If you’ve never been a CSA member before or are just getting back into cooking, a Petite share might be good place to start.

Trade options Each week you have the option of swapping 3 items in your share for different items of limited selection. This will allow us to address members’ dietary restrictions and personal tastes. We want everyone to leave pick-up excited about what they’re bringing home, minimizing the potential for wasted food.
