Full Acre Members receive 18 weeks of fresh, seasonal and certified organic vegetables. Your weekly delivery includes 10-12 items and can feed 2-5 people depending on your love of vegetables!

Your first delivery comes with a full season herb pot and herb pocket guide to keep you stocked with fresh herbs and recipes all summer long!

 Half Acre Farmer Share

If a full box each week is too much for you, opt for the Half Acre Share: you receive the same great veggies, but only 5-7 items per week.

 Fall Harvest Share

 Instead of a weekly box delivery, we will be offering online ordering of fall storage crops that will be delivered between October and November. Due to feedback from CSA members we are exploring online ordering as a way for you to choose exactly what you want to buy for your household. 

More information will follow as we get into the 2018 season. Stay tuned as you wont want to miss out on your carrots, potatoes, onions, leeks, squash, brussel sprouts, garlic and pumpkins!
