2017 SUMMER CSA DETAILS

We are very excited about our new options for 2017! We are now offering 2 share sizes at our Farm and Farmers' Market Location, as well as MARKET STYLE pick-up. What does this mean? Read below for specifics of each location's share options.  

WHAT YOU GET:

Full Share: $30 of vegetables weekly. Depending on your daily veggie consumption, you’ll get enough produce to feed a couple, a small family, or one voracious veggie eater. Typically 8-10 seasonal items are included in each share. Available at all locations. 

"Half" Share: $18 of vegetables weekly, perfect for someone trying to supplement their weekly veggie routine. If you are unsure you or your family will consume $30 of produce a week, this option is a good start. (You can upgrade your share to a Full Size if you realize you need more veggie goodness, or purchase additional produce at our Farm or Farmers' Market location.) If you have always wanted to support CSA, but find the share price prohibitive, our Payment Plan only requires 2 payments of $240. Half shares are ONLY available at our Farm and Farmers' Market pick-up locations. 

WHAT IS MARKET STYLE PICK-UP?

Market style CSA pick-up is similar to shopping at a Farmers' Market or Farm Stand, and is offered at our Farm and Farmers' Market pick-up locations. Every week, a "suggested share" will be posted at pick-up for each share size (this is what the weekly newsletter recipes are based on). These items, as well as additional veggies harvested that week, will be displayed. You will have the option to 1. Stick to the suggested share, 2. Customize your entire share, or 3. Swap out a few veggies in the suggested share for items that you enjoy, or for something you're unfamiliar with. 

You are also welcome to purchase more than your share's worth. Members receive 10% discount for additional vegetable purchased at the Swarthmore Farmers' Market and our Farm Stand. However, share value does not transfer week to week. For example, if you have a half share and only want $10 of veggies one week, you will not receive a $26 value the following.

We find it difficult to satisfy everyone's individual preferences. Some members like being introduced to different foods and brainstorming new meals, and some are comfortable in their routines and preferences. We want to be able to cater to both sides when possible!

 24 consecutive weeks; June 7th through November 18th.

Muhlenberg College, Allentown - Wednesdays 2 pm - 5 pm.

South Mountain Cycle & Cafe, Emmaus - Wednesdays 3 pm - 6 pm

Total Cost: 

*Share cost depends on your location and share size:

Lehigh Valley FULL SIZE, Boxed Share: $795. Payment Plan: 3 equal payments of $265. If you are paying in FULL, the total amount is due upon submission of your Member Agreement & Sign-up Form, either by check or via online. If you are choosing the Payment Plan, $265 is due with the submission of your Member Agreement & Sign-up Form. The second installment will be deposited April 1st, and the third and final will be deposited June 1st. If you choose the Payment Plan and are paying by check, please send all three signed and appropriately dated checks so we do not have to send out reminder e-mails for each due date. These checks will not be deposited until the stated due dates. This will save us precious office time and make sure we have all payments before our CSA season begins. This share option is an additional $1.25 per week to cover delivery and packaging costs. Price does not include 3% + $.30 online processing fees, incurred if you choose to purchase from our website.

Unsure if you'll be able to eat all the veggies in your share? Spread the veggie love and split the cost with friends or family! This is a good alternative if you are looking to supplement your weekly veggie intake, but are hesitant about taking on the CSA alone.

If none these options work for you, we are committed to working out a payment plan that fits your financial situation. Please feel free to contact us.

Don’t forget to look into our weekly newsletter, which includes detailed descriptions of everything in your share, the inside scoop on farm happenings, and simple recipes to help you turn your delicious veggies into even more delicious meals. You will be automatically added to our list upon sign-up, but please look in your Spam or Promotions folder once the season starts, because they sometimes get misplaced.


We are excited to grow and share vegetables that we love with you, and pass on our passion for high quality produce.
