CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, has been such an important part to Cider Hill Farm. This program allows us to offer fresh produce to our community members on a weekly basis. It also allows our neighbors to be an intricate part of our farm’s growth and success.
Members who join CSA’s love the commitment they have with their chosen farm and to their effort to eat local and healthy.
Our CSA Program will remain the same last year offering 3 different shares. The Full Share and a Half Share are made up of a weekly selection of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Our Fruit Only Share is a great option to help cure that sweet tooth brought on by our fresh strawberries, blueberries and other varieties of nature’s nectar.
CSA season will kick off on Wednesday June 14th and will run for 18 weeks until our final date on October 11th. Pick up day will be Wednesday with full service hours 11am to 6pm, and then self service from 6pm to 9pm. Shares can be picked up underneath our greenhouse.
Family, or Full shares, will have 10 to 15 items, while a half share will have fewer items. The shares will be boxed ahead of time to keep the produce extremely fresh no matter what time of day you come. We will have a swap table where you can exchange an item you may not want with one that may fit your menu better.
The full share costs $600, while the half share costs $375, and the fruit only share will be $350.00
