What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Our CSA program allows you to access fresh, local produce throughout our 32-week harvest season (typically April-November). Similar to a share of stock, by investing in our farm through a CSA, you can pickup a certain amount of produce each week without going through the hassle of paying at the market stand. Our CSA program allows us to streamline our transactions at market while raising capital to fund our 32-week harvest season.
Through a CSA, you are not limited to what's available at the grocery store. As a local farm, we are able to experiment with what we grow, and we pride ourselves on bringing new and interesting produce to market while providing the stables that everyone loves.
For example, in 2020 our shareholders were able to choose from various Asian greens and salad mixes in late Spring, over 20 varieties of peppers in Summer, and an assortment of greens, cauliflower, and broccoli in Autumn.
When you become a CSA shareholder, you pay upfront and pick-up "shares" of produce each week throughout the season.
Yokna Bottoms Farm offers a CSA share during our growing season. Our typical season lasts 32 weeks. However, we offer 2 types of shares to suit the needs of anyone:
- 32 Week Full Share- $700
- 32 Week Half Share- $350
- 10 Week Half Share- $120
Our shares are based on a point system.
1 point= $1
Half Shares average 12-15 points each week, while full shares are 24-30 points.
When you pick up your share, you choose what produce you would like with those points at the market stand.
Our pickup locations include:
- OXCM on Tuesdays from 3-6:30pm
- Midtown Market on Saturdays from 7-11am
We are also currently offering a prepackaged option in order to keep everyone safe and healthy to the best of our ability. By choosing a prepackaged option, you will receive the same number of points each week, but the produce is predetermined.
