What is a CSA?
A community supported agriculture program (CSA) is a simple idea. The “members” buy a “share” of the farmer’s harvest at the beginning of the growing season and then come to the farm each week to pick up a share of seasonally available vegetables. It is a vegetable subscription program and the best way to support your local farmer.
What will you get when you become a member?
In addition to the certified organic vegetables grown right here at Heart Beets Farm in Berkley, MA, we provide email newsletters, access to our members only facebook group and access to our weekly live unboxing videos. The facebook group is packed with recipes, storage tips and a community of like minded folks.
What about too much food?
Some members choose to split shares with another household. Many members choose our smaller CSA option, the Petite share. This is an every other week share that is perfect for smaller households or those new to local vegetables (it is our most popular share)!
Our Newest offering is the Flex share. Eight weeks of summer CSA, you choose the dates! This share is for those people who vacation or have demanding schedules but still want to support their local farmer and eat great. All we need is a weeks notice and you are set.
How much does it cost?
Most of our summer shares are less than $40/week for 8-14 certified Organic Vegetable items. Compared to our online store, our CSA is about 25% less expensive.
What sets us apart?
Aside from being Certified Organic, we at Heart Beets Farm only distribute vegetables that we grow ourselves. We never buy in vegetables or other products to fill out shares. Our CSA is the cornerstone of our small-farm. We look forward to growing you the best tasting vegetables Massachusetts can offer.
