Autumn 2017 CSA Share

Price: 
$280.00

The CSA extension is born out of simply not wanting it all to end. We have designed a program that will invite new families to stay with our harvest through Thanksgiving. Together we will turn the "off season" back "on."  Though we will be growing at a smaller scale, we will continue to try to provide diverse, healthy, safe, and nutritious locally raised food to folks who choose to participate. We have winter hoophouses in production to protect tender greens through the first snowfalls and preserve food in our pantry and root cellar.  The share will include vegetables, some preserves, and flowers fresh from the farm. 
The shares will be available for pick up each Friday 2pm-7pm at our farm, in the CSA pick-up room. 


Our CSA Share. By purchasing this share, you are agreeing to our CSA-member's agreement below.

I commit to membership in The Hickories CSA for the harvest season. I commit to pick up my weekly share. I understand that if I do not pick up my share, it will be sold or donated and I can not pick it up outside the scheduled window of assigned time.
One aspect of CSA is that I will share in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, drought, disease, frost, and so on) and in the rewards (bumper crops, new flavors) of a local harvest. There is no refunding of my investment other than through vegetables I pick up.
By checking "I agree!" below, I am confirming that I understand this principle and agree that there is no guarantee on the exact amount or type of produce I will receive in my share. By participating in the CSA, I am supporting local farmers as well as more environmentally sustainable food production and distribution.
