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.

Optional Add-Ons

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

Pick-Your-Own Veggie Share ($110)

PYO shareholders harvest set amounts of cherry tomatoes, string beans, and more. 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! Must be a regular Summer CSA shareholder to sign up.

Pick-Your-Own Flowers Share ($200) sold out

Celebrate summer with 12 weeks of PYO flowers! You will have access to all flowers grown in Boyce Field throughout the three months. Shareholders will 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 ($65)

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.
