Frequently Asked Questions

What does it cost to join the CSA and how long is the commitment?

If the membership tier you would like to join is currently full, you can sign up for the membership’s waitlist to be added to our Farm to Table CSA if a member from that membership tier cancels. Please contact with any questions regarding our Farm to Table CSA, or if you are currently a member and would like to change your membership type.

We currently offer 5 memberships:

  1. $30/box – Pay It Forward Membership*

  2. $15/box – Food for All – Very Low-Income Residents (LIMITED SHARES AVAILABLE)

Our start up fees include:

**$20 membership fee

Your initial membership payments will total:

  1. Pay It Forward Membership: $80

  2. Food For All Membership: $30

After your first two deliveries, you will be charged per box.

*If you can join at the Pay-it-Forward membership level of $30, $5 of each CSA payment will be a tax-deductible donation making it possible for a lower-income family to join the CSA and provide the fresh healthy food necessary for their family to thrive. You can also add a $5 tax-deductible donation to any of your CSA boxes to help fund our Food For All program.

**This $20 fee is waived for Food For All memberships

My box is arriving tomorrow and I still haven’t received my What’s In The Box email; what’s going on?

Sometimes we have delays in confirming what vegetables our partner farmers are sending to put in the box; we hold off on notifying you of What’s In The Box until we have a full count of all the fruits and veggies.

Thank you for being patient as we harvest & grow!

It is 5pm and my box still hasn’t come; what’s going on?
