Our summer 2022 CSA is sold out. We have many other ways to get involved and classes you can sign up for. You can also add your name to our CSA waitlist.

We are also at the Ambler Farmer’s Market every Saturday from May-early November from 9am – 12pm with lots of other local vendors. Come purchase our farm fresh veggies there!

Our Summer CSA runs for 24 weeks, beginning in late May/early June and runs continuously through the first weeks of November.  

We offer three pick-up days: Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 2:30 to 7:30 PM.

Each week, 10 – 15 choices of vegetables will be displayed and offered in our Harvest House share room, similar to what you’d expect at farmer’s market. Coming to the farm on their designated pick-up day, members select the vegetables to make up their share, depending on their share size.

Greeters, who are workshare members, facilitate pick-up, explain how our system works and answer any questions. They are also there to share recipes and explain how to use some of the lesser known vegetables. Members receive weekly newsletters with a farm update and the share list for that week. It is an interactive way to keep involved with your vegetables as they are being seeded, planted, and harvested!

2022 SHARE OPTIONS & PRICING

Mini Share

$480

4 units* per week. Ideal for a single person or couple

Regular Share

$630

6 units* per week. Feeds a couple or a small family that cooks a few times a week

Large Share

$936

9 units* per week. Definitely for veggie lovers and families that cook a lot!

*What is a unit? A “unit” is essentially one “item” you’d typically get at a farmer’s market or grocery store: a bunch of carrots, a bag of lettuce, or a head of cabbage. Value of the shares is approximately equivalent to the same local organic produce in grocery stores, but members receive significantly more value through You-Pick opportunities and bumper crops.

We also offer flexible Books of 10 units for $50. You can purchase these extra 10 units to use at any time throughout the season. This punch-card book allows you to take up to 5 extra units at any one pick-up. Greeters can answer any questions at time of use.

WHAT’S IN A SHARE?

YOU-PICK CROPS

Some crops are offered as a “You-Pick”, in which members have the option of going out in the fields and harvesting their own. All You-Picks are counted towards total number of picked-up weekly units.

Here’s a list of our You-Pick Crops:

Cherry tomatoes, strawberries, green beans, wax beans, roma beans, shishito peppers, hot peppers, tomatillos, snow peas, ground cherries, blackberries, edamame, and access to our culinary herb beds including basil, parsley, sage, dill, and more.

YOU-PICK FLOWERS

Flower Shares are being offered to CSA members in 2022 for $15.00 for the entire summer. This helps offset some of our seed costs for flowers. The flower you-pick season runs for 8 weeks, so it’s the equivalent of $1.88/bunch!

SHARE DUTY REQUIREMENT

All members/families are required to complete 4 hours of work on the farm over the course of the 24 week season. Think of share duty as a meet-and-greet involvement opportunity: it is a way for us to get to know you and your family better and for you to get to know the farm and its production better. Any share member who feels they cannot devote the 4 hours may optionally pay $75.

Since the beginning of agriculture, food has been about community participation. Share duty is a great way for our members to be involved again with the production of their own food and understand what goes into it. At some points during the season, we also rely on our amazing members to help us pull in big harvests that we couldn’t manage on our own, like potatoes and sweet potatoes. Share duty tasks often include tasks like big harvesting, weeding, and fall and spring clean-up. Share duty can also be working in our herb gardens, which are completely member run and supported.

For members who may not be able to complete share duty in the field, we also offer other ways to participate. As part of our mission as a non-profit, we aim to donate produce weekly to two local pantries. Members can complete their hours by driving our donations from the farm to the pantry one morning a week for a month. This helps us get our veggies to our neighbors in need even when we still need to be in the fields working.

There are also opportunities to volunteer during any events that we hold during the year.

We email share duty opportunities to members on a regular basis throughout the season so you can choose what you’d like to do to help the farm and complete your hours.
