What You’ll Get

Enjoy the height of the growing season with our Summer CSA! Throughout the summer months, you’ll receive staple crops such as carrots, beets, potatoes, a variety of greens, and fragrant herbs, along with seasonal highlights like:

Heirloom Tomatoes • Sweet Corn • Broccoli • Cantaloupe • Cauliflower • Sweet Peppers • Eggplant • Celery • Summer Squash • Leeks • Onions • ...and more!

At each distribution we aim to provide our shareholders with 8-18 different crops, filling the weekly vegetable needs of a family of four (or two to four adults), depending on how often you cook and how central vegetables are to your diet.

We aim to provide a 20% return on initial investment to our shareholders, and pass along the abundance when we experience bumper crops.

Should I get a Full Share or a Half Share?

A Half Share is equal to half the volume of produce included in a Full Share. Please note that some items may differ between Full and Half Shares in any given week.

All shareholders also receive weekly emails with cooking tips, recipes, and updates about our farm, farmers, and farming practices. 

Optional Add-Ons

You must be a regular Summer CSA shareholder to sign up for any of these options.

Pick-Your-Own Veggie Share ($100) Sold Out

CSA harvesting baskets in the field

PYO shareholders harvest set amounts of cherry tomatoes, string beans, and huskcherries. Depending on field conditions, strawberries, sugar snap peas, and shell peas may also be included.

Due to the prohibitive amount of time it takes us to harvest them for all of our shareholders, these particular crops are are either excluded or offered in limited quantities to regular CSA shareholders. 

Gain access to greater volumes of these farm favorites by enrolling in a PYO Veggie Share! 

Pick-Your-Own Flower Share ($150)

PYO Flower shareholders in field

Water and scissors will be available in the fields.

Fruit Share ($TBD)

We partner with Autumn Hills Orchard in Groton, MA, to offer you a selection of peaches, apples, pears, plums and grapes. The Fruit Share runs for the last few weeks of the Summer CSA program, just before the start of the Fall CSA. Information and registration details will be sent to all shareholders via email at a later date.
