Bridge the summer and fall seasons with this diverse share. Shareholders receive 11 distributions of high-quality, sustainably produced vegetables from our farm, including summer favorites like heirloom tomatoes, peppers, and carrots, as well as the best of fall: parsnips, winter squashes, onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and other root crops. A variety of fresh and cooking greens is also included weekly.
Half shares receive half the volume of the full shares and some items may differ between full and half shares in any given week.
Watch for a welcome e-mail and your first weekly newsletter from our growers with additional info and recipes. Please bring your own bags and/or boxes to pack your veggies.
Fall CSA share holders can also particpate in our Veggie Pick-your-own (PYO) where you will harvest set amounts of cherry tomatoes, string beans, and huskcherries. Due to limited quantities and to the prohibitive amount of time it takes us to harvest them for all of our shareholders, these particular crops are either excluded or offered in limited quantities to regular CSA shareholders. Gain access to greater volumes of these farm favorites by enrolling in PYO. Please note that PYO requires an additional 2-3 minute walk to our growing fields and happen rain, shine, or high heat.To register for this option add Fall CSA PYO Veggies to your cart.
We also expect to again 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 first few weeks of the share. Information and registration details will be sent to you via email.

Mass Audubon Membership - If you are not a current member, we ask that you join or renew your Mass Audubon Membership in order to participate in our CSA program. Learn more about the different levels of membership and their benefits at: www.massaudubon.org/membership.
Growing Practices- We believe that healthy food begins with healthy soil, and healthy soil depends on the vitality of surrounding ecosystems. We farm with the health of our adjacent woods, meadows, ponds, and vernal pools firmly in mind by actively stewarding these natural areas for birds and other wildlife. We follow all organic farming guidelines, and are committed to sustainable soil management by including rest periods in our crop rotation and by spreading our own compost over fields to promote soil fertility-compost made at Drumlin Farm from our humanely-raised livestock. We never use any chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Purchasing a CSA share at Drumlin Farm not only supports our farming program, but also Mass Audubon's overall mission to protect Massachusetts' biodiversity and ecosystems.
