Registration is open for our 2021 season, which runs from June 8 to November 2. Sign ups close May 22nd.
Meanwhile, here’s an overview of our shares and pricing.
2021 VEGETABLE SHARE PRICING
Becoming a CSA member starts with signing up for a full or half vegetable share. Members can also sign up for optional fruit, flower, and egg shares (see below).
- Full share members pick up every week and work two shifts per season.
- Half share members pick up every other week and work one shift per season.
NOTE: For the 2021 season, work shifts are optional. But we would still appreciate your help if you’re able! More info here.
We offer four share plans, based on household size and self-reported income. See this chart to find your plan! “Per week” figures below are a way to think about the cost. Membership can be paid up-front or or in 3-5 payments; details are on the sign-up form.
- Plan A: $700 for a full share, $350 for a half share ($31.82 per week)
- Plan B: $564 for a full share, $282 for a half share ($25.64 per week)
- Plan C: $396 for a full share, $198 for a half share ($18 per week)
- Plan D: $170 for a full share, $85 for a half share ($7.73 per week) *
* Plan D is reserved for households using SNAP benefits to pay for their shares.
Plans A and B include a $7 administrative fee for supplies, events or emergencies, and our membership in Just Food, a nonprofit dedicated to food justice initiatives. The rest of your payment goes directly to the farmers who grow your food!
BOXES AND BAGS FEE: This year, Plans A, B, and C include a boxes and bags fee of $34.00 for full vegetable shares and $17.00 for half vegetable shares. The boxes and bags fee is waived for Plan D shares. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Windflower Farm will pre-box shares all season long – one box per shareholder. We will happily accept all box returns as long as they are clean and undamaged. Our goal is to return to our normal plastic tote delivery system in the 2022 season.
Pricing tiers are structured so that neighbors subsidize each others’ shares; Plans C and D (for those at lower income levels than Plans A or B) are priced below actual net cost, making healthy and sustainably grown food more accessible to the wider community.
Each weekly share is around two pounds of vegetables, greens, and herbs that vary as the season progresses. Below are snapshots of two weekly shares—the left image from early summer (as our first tomatoes begin to arrive but before we have a glut of them!) and the right from early fall (when we start to see more root veggies, squashes, and apples). Note that the left pic includes optional flower and egg shares; the right includes eggs and fruit.
2021 FRUIT, FLOWER, & EGG “EXTRA” SHARES
To add fruit, flower, or egg shares, you must purchase at least a half vegetable share. Your “extra” shares must be picked up every week, even if you are a half-share (every-other-week) member. Fruit and flower shares have a shorter season.
Fruit share (20 weeks): $164 ($8.20 per week). Organic berries and melons from Windflower Farms, plus other minimally treated (non-organic) fruits from partnering growers. The fruit share typically includes late-spring strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and raspberries; mid-summer peaches, plums, nectarines, and apricots; and autumn apples, pears, and cider.
Flower share (6 weeks): Not available for the 2021 season – Jan is taking a break from flowers this year. Organic bouquets and bunches, packed in travel-ready floral sleeves. Past shares 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): A half-dozen per week for $74 ($3 per week), a dozen for $139 ($6.31 per week), or two dozen for $278 ($12.63 per week). Gorgeous brown eggs from free-range chickens that strut around pecking the green grass at Davis Family Farm. You’ll notice the difference in the taste of the eggs!
Maple share (June 22, August 24, October 19): Maple syrup, maple cream, maple sugar and more from Davis Family Farm carefully managed sugarbush. Members can order for one date or all three. Sign up here.
MEAT, DAIRY, GRAINS, & MORE
PPkCSA members can also order à la carte from Lewis Waite Farms in Greenwich, NY. Lewis Waite offers products sourced from New England farms—meats, cheeses, grains, legumes, granola, chutneys, teas, mushrooms, spices, jams, and more—delivered to your CSA distribution site twice a month to pick up alongside your share!
