2022 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, egg, maple, and grain 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 2022 season, work shifts remain optional, but are strongly encouraged! 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.

  • BOK CHOY Plan :  $700 for a full share, $350 for a half share ($32.64 / week w. box fee)
  • KOHLRABI Plan :  $590 for a full share, $295 for a half share ($27.64 / week w. box fee)
  • RADISH Plan :  $350 for a full share, $175 for a half share ($16.73 / week w. box fee)
  • ZUCCHINI Plan :  $170 for a full share, $85 for a half share ($7.73 / week) *
    * Plan ZUCCHINI is reserved for households using SNAP benefits to pay for their shares.

BOXES AND BAGS FEE: Due to the ongoing pandemic, Windflower Farm will pre-box shares again this season – one box per shareholder. To help the farm to defray the cost of boxes and bags, we are requesting a fee of $18 for full vegetable shares and $9 for half vegetable shares. The fee is waived for Zucchini plan shares.

Prospect Park CSA has a box reuse plan.  A table will be available on site for members to transfer their vegetable items from the box into their own bags. By implementing this reuse plan our site’s box fee is half that of sites where new boxes are required each week.

Pricing tiers are structured so that neighbors subsidize each others’ shares; RADISH and ZUCCHINI plans 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 picture includes optional flower (not available 2022) and egg shares; the right includes eggs and fruit.

2022 FRUIT, EGG  & EXTRA SHARES

To add fruit or egg shares you must purchase at least a half vegetable share. Your fruit and eggs shares must be picked up every week, even if you are a half-share (every-other-week) member. Maple and grain shares are delivered on designated even weeks throughout the season. Fruit shares have a shorter season.

Fruit share (20 weeks): $176 ($8 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.

Egg share (22 weeks): A half-dozen per week for $79 ($3.59 per week), a dozen for $149 ($6.77 per week), or two dozen for $298 ($13.54 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 (EVEN weeks in June, August & October): Maple syrup, maple cream, maple sugar and more from Davis Family Farm carefully managed sugarbush. Members can order a-la-carte via a link provided after vegetable share signup.

Grain share (EVEN weeks in June, August & October): Stone ground flours, oat groats, wheat berries and more from Kristoffer Ross of Hickory Wind Farm. Members can order a-la-carte via a link provided after vegetable share signup.

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!

Check out Lewis Waite’s offerings on their site and create a Lewis Waite account to be notified about their order deadlines so you don’t miss out on that YUM!
