How to Use This CSA

Mid-Season Enrollment HERE!

The CSA will run for 21 weeks with deliveries every Friday from June 8 through October 26.

Deliveries to Chicago and Madison will take place every other week. Chicago starting June 15. Madison starting June 22.

TRADITIONAL CSA BOX

This option will operate as a traditional CSA delivery where every delivery I choose a wide variety of the available vegetables to fill your box. You will receive a newsletter on Wednesday informing you of the contents of your box and the box will be delivered on Friday!

This option is great for people who know they want the whole range of vegetables and don’t need to get in touch with me each week to place their order.

This is available in two sizes – $600 and $400.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN CSA BOX

This option allows for much greater flexibility. You will establish your account balance at the beginning of the year from which your purchases throughout the season will be deducted.

Each week, on Saturday morning I’ll post (here on this website) what is going to be available from the farm for that weeks deliveries. Your order must be placed by Monday night. Vegetables are delivered on Friday.

This options means you must place your order to receive vegetables that week! Therefore, this options takes a bit more involvement – visiting the site online to make your individualized purchase.

This is available in three sizes – $600, $400, and $200.

Please note – Although, this share option is super exciting to me for it’s flexibility, it is expected that you will be buying produce throughout the season and not all at once. Any unused balance will not be refunded at the end of the year as it will have already been spent to allow me to grow crops in the quantity predicted.
