Shares 2017

VEGETABLE SHARES

Becoming a CSA member starts with signing up for a vegetable share. After that, members can add “extras” like fruit, flowers, and eggs.

Vegetable shares are available as full shares (pick-up every week) or half shares (pick-up every other week) and in four pricing plans, based on self-reported household income.

Plans A and B include a $6 administrative fee: $5 toward membership in Just Food, a non-profit dedicated to community food initiatives, and $1 toward supplies and events. The rest of your payment goes directly to the farmers who grow your food! Pricing tiers are structured so that neighbors subsidize each others’ shares; Plans C and D (for those at a lower income level than Plans A or B) are priced below net cost per share, making healthy and sustainably grown food more accessible to the wider community.

Vegetable Share Options (22 weeks)

Plan A:  $583 full share / $295 half share. (Works out to $26.50 / week.) For household incomes greater than $83,000 per year.

Plan B:  $515 full share / $261 half share. (Works out to $23.40 / week) For household incomes of $42,000–$83,000 per year.

Plan C:  $304 full share / $152 half share. (Works out to $13.82 / week.) For household incomes less than $42,000 per year.

Plan D:  $158 full share / $79 half share. (Works out to $7.18 / week.) For households using SNAP benefits to pay for their share.

A full share consists of about two pounds of vegetables, greens, and herbs each week for 22 weeks. A half share is the same amount, but picked up every other week (11 weeks total.) For an idea of the variety and quantity members receive each week, see a past season’s weekly share lists here.

Members who purchase a full or half share of vegetables can add “extras” like a fruit, flower, or egg share. To add extras, you must register for at least a half vegetable share.

FRUIT, FLOWER, & EGG SHARES

Fruit share (20 weeks, every week): $156. (Works out to $7.80 / week.)

A fruit share consists of organic berries and melons from Windflower Farms, plus other minimally treated (non-organic) fruits from partnering growers. This typically includes late-spring strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and raspberries; mid-summer peaches, plums, nectarines, and apricots; and autumn apples, pears, and cider.

Flower share (10 weeks, every week): $135. (Works out to $13.60 / week.)

Flowers are organic and packed in travel-ready floral sleeves. Bouquets or bunches have included sunflowers, campanula, lilies, lisianthus, daisies, asters, mums, cockscombs (“brain flowers” as one young CSA member calls them), and more.

Egg share (22 weeks, every week): 

Half-dozen: $65. (Works out to $2.95 / week.)
Dozen: $130. (Works out to $5.90 / week.)
Two dozen: $260. (Works out to $11.81 / week.)

Brown eggs from free-range chickens at Davis Family Farm. (Their shiny-feathered hens run around pecking in green grass, and their eggs are as good-for-you as can be. You’ll notice the difference in taste.)

MEAT, DAIRY, GRAINS, & MORE

PPkCSA members can also order items à la carte from Lewis Waite Farms in Greenwich, New York. Lewis Waite offers a wide variety of products sourced from New England farms, including meats, cheeses, grains, legumes, granola, chutneys, teas, mushrooms, spices, and more. Check out Lewis Waite’s offerings here.

Note: This is not a weekly share purchase—it’s an à la carte order you can pick up along with your share(s). To order from Lewis Waite as a PPkCSA member, create an account through their site; they’ll email you directly with info and deadlines for orders, which are delivered to our distro site every other week.
