MEMBERSHIP OPEN FOR THE 2016 SESAON!

To become a member e-mail the farm at homeward bounty@gmail.com

CSA stand for community supported agriculture. With this model, people in the community can become members of the farm. They become members, by buying into the farm in the spring and throughout the season these members will get a freshly harvested box of vegetables weekly. This is a way for the community to invest in the farm and an excellent way for the farm to have a guaranteed market of dedicated members. With this model, the farm and it’s members have a special bond, where both parties feel deeply supported and nourished.

The Homeward Bounty Farm CSA runs for 20 weeks, usually from the beginning of June into October. CSA shares can be picked up at the farm or delivered to your door. Each member receives a weekly harvest of farm abundance. When harvesting, the CSA boxes have the first preference and priority, and are always filled with diversity. CSA members are honored each year at our annual CSA long-table harvest dinner out in the farm field. It’s a beautiful event where we give thanks to our community and the season’s bounty.

The cost for a CSA season, is $450 for on-farm pick up and $500 for home delivery (for 20 weeks). CSA membership has very little turnover, but each year I include a few more house holds. For 2015 membership is full, at 20 members.
