What is a CSA share?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and CSA shares are a great way to get local, affordable produce directly from a neighborhood farm. By signing up for a CSA share in the spring, you can provide a farm with up-front support and a partnership that will last all season. Once the payment is taken care of, all you have to do is show up every week during the harvest season and pick up your food!
The Student Farm offers Fall CSA shares to the campus community every year, enabling students, faculty, and staff to purchase a share in the farm and pick up over 25 pounds of fresh organic produce every week for ten weeks (September through November). The total retail value of the ten week share is $1455.
$360 for a full share for students and $400 for faculty and staff full share.
Or you may pay a $175 deposit with the balance due at first pick up on September 10th.
We will not be offering half shares this season.
