CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” It’s a simple arrangement where you purchase a ‘share’ of produce from a farm. In return, as a farm ‘member’ you receive seasonal produce on a regular basis.
Our CSA members pick up produce at the farm every other week on Sundays between 12 and 2 p.m. Each CSA member receives 8 “baskets” of produce over the course of the season. Our CSA generally runs from June through October. We’ll announce specific dates closer to the season.

The farm offers a wide variety of useful, flavorful vegetables and herbs lovingly grown with attention to soil health and biodiversity. Ecologically grown fruit from High Hill Orchard in Meriden will be included as part of this year’s share. Pick-your-own cutting flowers are available thoughout the season. Members are encouraged to harvest-their-own veggies that are still growing in the gardens at the end of the season.
A 15-hour work share costs $380. A 5-hour work share costs $420. A limited number of non-working shares are available — please inquire for more information. We also offer a small number of work-intensive shares by interview with the farmer. Payment in full is required at the time of registration.
An important aspect of our mission is to educate folks about sustainable agricultural practices, the natural environment and responsible uses of open space. We believe that asking members for a modest amount of work on the farm is one manifestation of this goal. We ask for a small number of hours to be completed over the course of the growing season.
We also request that you take a look at some helpful words of wisdom regarding the commitment to a share in a community supported agriculture farm.
