Drumlin Farm Summer CSA
What You’ll Get
Enjoy the height of the growing season with our Summer CSA! Shareholders receive 10 distributions of high-quality, sustainably-grown vegetables from our farm and also have the opportunity to sign up for several optional add-ons.
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. Full shareholders receive additional volume as well as variety.
Our goal is to provide a 20% return on initial investment to our shareholders, and pass along the abundance when we experience bumper crops. All shareholders also receive weekly emails with cooking tips, recipes, and updates about our farm, farmers, and farming practices.
→ You must be a regular Summer CSA shareholder to sign up for any of these options. ←
PYO shareholders can harvest set amounts of cherry tomatoes, string beans, and more themselves. Depending on field conditions, strawberries, sugar snap peas, and shell peas may also be included.
As growing conditions vary every year, this add-on begins when the crops are plentiful enough to support harvesting, typically several weeks into the distribution. Must be a regular Summer CSA shareholder to sign up.
Pick-Your-Own Flowers Share ($210)
July 12-September 20
Create beautiful bouquets throughout the summer with our PYO flower shares! You will have access to a variety of seasonal flowers grown in Boyce Field where you'll cut 2 large bouquets each week, 30-40 stems each. Harvests take place on Wednesdays from 12–6 pm at Drumlin Farm (rain or shine). Must be a regular Summer CSA shareholder to sign up.
Fruit Share ($TBD)
We partner with Autumn Hills Orchard in Groton, MA, to offer you locally-grown fruit. Shares may include
peaches, nectarines, grapes, and berries, shifting to apples and pears as the season progresses. The Fruit Share runs for the last five weeks of the Summer CSA program. Must be a regular Summer CSA shareholder to sign up.
Help out in the fields or at the farmstand and get $60-500 off the price of a regular share with our Work Share option. Work shares are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
