At Fresh Earth Farms we strive to provide a flexible approach to CSA.  As such, we provide two different CSA programs.  Our On-farm pick-up program provides you the ability to choose your produce.  With drop-site pick-up you have a convenient place to receive your produce.  With either program you get the same delicious, locally-grown taste.

Drop-site Pick-up

Our drop-site program utilizes a 15”x14”x13” reusable plastic crate for FamilyShares or a 5/9ths bushel box for CoupleShares.  The FamilyShare contains three shares of produce and can feed three to four people.  The CoupleShare contains two shares and is good for a couple or family with small children.  To understand how much food this is please refer to the on-farm pick-up section below.

On-farm Pick-up

With on-farm pick-up there are no boxes.  You choose the produce you take home with you.  As with the delivery shares, our on-farm shares come in two sizes: CoupleShare and FamilyShare.  For single people we have a solution.  Please call the farm for details.

Each week you will have a variety of produce to choose from.  Generally there will be between 6 and 20 different items in four to eight categories.  A CoupleShare would choose two items from each category.  A FamilyShare would choose three items from each category.

Here are two examples to illustrate how this works:
