When you buy a CSA share from Stearns Farm, you’re helping to support a unique farming model: community members banding together to finance the up-front expenses of growing the produce you’ll enjoy during the summer. If you are planning to buy a summer share in 2017, doing it now will help to ensure we have our supplies and staff in place for the imminent growing season.
Until we sell all of our shares, we have to put off buying some seeds and supplies and hiring staff. And the supplies we need get harder to obtain as we get further into the spring. We need funds now to ensure we’re well stocked. What’s more, we need to begin hiring staff. The operational funds that your purchase provides ensure we’ll have the money to pay wages.
We’re excited to offer two share sizes this year—the Classic Harvest (the traditional full share) and the Farmer’s Choice (for smaller households and people who travel a lot). Based on your feedback we’ve extended our Friday pickup hours to 10 am-7 pm. Weekly pickups for both share sizes will mean that all sharers will enjoy the freshest possible produce.
Buy your share today! And please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to seeing you at work hours during spring planting and under the pickup tent in June.
