CSA Flyer 2009

 


 This is the flyer we sent out this year, inviting folks to sign up. If you are one of our friends and didn’t recieve a copy, please forgive the oversight! This version omits the sophisticated graphics of the original 🙂 but maybe later we’ll figure out how to get the whole thing posted. Anyway, the essential information is here:

 

 

 

 


A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a way of connecting people to the farmers who produce their food.  Members purchase a share of the farm at the beginning of the season and receive weekly boxes of fresh produce in exchange. 

         

This is our first year operating a CSA so we have decided to keep the season relatively short – 16 weeks.  The season will run from the week of  June 14 through the week of September 27.   The price of a share this year will be $320, which breaks down to $20 per week.  There will be two payment options: pay in full at the beginning of the season, or pay every four weeks ($80 each time).  If you choose the latter option we ask that you give us post-dated checks for the entire season.  This ensures that we maintain the support that we need to make it through the year. 

         

We have recently added a few new members to the family (15 to be eggxact!) and will be offering eggs for sale on harvest day.  They

will cost $2.25 for a half-dozen or $4.50 a dozen, and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

         

If you are a home gardener and want some healthy, locally raised starts, let us know!  We will be selling a variety of starts ready to be planted. 

         

We have decided to limit membership to 10 shares this year.  The deadline to sign up is Valentine’s Day (Saturday, February 14).  So the sooner you sign up, the better!  You don’t have to be a CSA member to purchase either eggs or starts, so tell your friends!
