What is a Farm Share or CSA Program?

IMG_0241

Like a veggie subscription service, members of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Program get produce straight from their local farmers for a predetermined amount of time.

Where does the food come from?

The St Joe’s Farm Share is a collaborative effort. We work with 10 local farmers to aggregate a wide variety of responsibly grown, local fruits and vegetables. Working together allows us to:

  1. Increase variety
  2. Increase our number of available shares
  3. Support local, sustainable agriculture
    1. Our program will generate ~$130,000 in revenue this year for  farmers.

What will I get if I sign up?

You will pick up a box of fruits and vegetables from The Farm at St. Joes. The exact contents will change week-to-week and season-to-season.

Spring will feature a lot of greens (arugula, spinach, kale, etc).

Summer will include things like tomatoes, peaches, carrots, eggplant, and peppers.

Fall will have both greens as well as many of the storage crops such as potatoes, squash, and beets.

We offer whole and half shares

Whole shares: you pick up every week. This is designed for 2-3 adults or a family of 4.

Half shares: you pick up every other week. This is designed for 1-2 adults or people who are new to the program.

How will I get my veggies?

Typically we offer self-serve and in-person pick ups. This is on hold due to the corona virus situation.
