What is a Garlic CSA and How can I join?

CSA stands for ‘community supported agriculture’, in which a member is a person or family who purchases an annual ‘share’ of a local farm before the growing season begins and then is assured of receiving an array of vegetables (in this case, a wide selection of our garlic varieties and garlic products and honey when available) throughout the season.

General info about the 2015 Garlic Friends CSA is below.

  • Cost for Level 1 is $100/year or Level 2 is $125/year. You may buy more than one share (yes, some members buy more than one share!)
  • Benefits for both Level 1 and 2 include $125 ‘credit’ at our market stands (we will use an old-fashioned ledger book to keep track of your purchases and remaining balance for future purchases)
  • Special Note: Level 1 members are requested to volunteer for 4 hours/share during the season.
  • You purchase what you wish from us, when you wish with your credit
  • Other benefits include CSA member pricing on our garlic scape U-pick day, CSA family potluck on our farm, CSA member-only time at our annual “Barn Sale”

Thank you for re-joining or considering becoming a member of our farm’s Garlic Friends CSA in 2015.

We love being your local garlic farmers AND your garlic friends!
