COMMUNITY  SUPPORTED  AGRICULTURE

It takes a farm to support a community...

And a community to support a farm.

WHAT IS CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture which is a program that connects eaters and farmers more intimately in a way that sees eaters subscribing to a portion of the farms harvest. When you become a member of a CSA program you are purchasing a "share" of the harvest from a local farmer. 

This program offers benefits to both farmers and eaters alike. In this shared benefit-risk model eaters are investing in their farm at a time of the year when expenses for farmers are very high and incoming revenue is very low. This allows the farmer to make better investments into their farm in the spring when they need to the most.

Eaters benefit from the program by "owning" a share of the fresh and nutritious crops from that years harvest. At our farm, we feed our CSA members first, before selling additional produce through other sales channels. CSA members get the best of the best!  Eaters also get to learn more in-depthly about where their food comes from, how it is produced and who is producing it. Eaters and farmers develop closer relationships that see everyone deepening their connections with the food they eat. It's a win-win for everyone!

Starting 2024 our CSA program is expanding to include pork + eggs, both also produced here at our farm. We are so excited for these additions! As you will see below, you can pick and choose between six different CSA shares!  Our CSA members also receive other perks - like our Happy Hills Farm digital recipe book that gets bigger every year, and our new in 2024 produce storage guide that helps you make the most of your veggie boxes, and helps to reduce food waste. 

OUR 2024 PROGRAM IS NOW OPEN FOR SIGN-UPS!

 

Welcome to our 7th year of our community supported agriculture program! This program is the backbone of our farm, and it enables us to continue producing food year after year. We are so grateful to everyone who supports us through our CSA!

2024 will look a little different for our CSA program. We have added new products, and have expanded the number of program options to choose from to best suit your needs. We do have membership guidelines which are pretty standard for any CSA program, and all CSA members receive a copy. Check out all of the different program options below, including prices, dates, products and sign-up links. 

If you are keen to join us in 2024, don't delay in getting registered! This year we have reduced our program in size, so each of the options you see below does have a member limit. Thank you so much for your interest in joining us for our 7th year of farming in the mountains! We can't wait to feed you!

2024 - 2026 FULL FARM INVESTMENT SHARE   $2500

The full farm investment CSA share is a two year long commitment, or whenever you use up your $2500 value - whichever comes first. This Share has been designed with our past members in mind who join us for all of our yearly CSA programs, who will be interested in vegetables, eggs, pork, fresh flower bouquets - everything we have to offer! This Share offers us the most value as farmers, and offers the most perks to you as a CSA member. We have a limited number of Investment Shares available each year. Check out the perks of becoming an Investment Member:

  • The best part about this share is the option for you to customize what you want. We will work with each Investment Member through a shared google document to accommodate your wants and needs for every product we offer. You can easily chime in and book time away, add extra products or double up your weekly order.

  • You get the best of the best of what we have to offer. Sometimes we don't have enough of a vegetable to offer our weekly veggie box members, so these items will be offered to our Investment Share Members instead (read: you can always get carrots if you want!)

  • Each Investment Share will automatically include our 18 week veggie box program (still customizable though!) and you can also add weekly eggs, a half pig (or just random pork cuts), fresh flower bouquets when available and our winter microgreen delivery program too! All of these options that you choose will be included in your $2500 share, if you want! 

  • We often have veggies available when our 18 week summer csa isn't running (early spring veggies, late fall veggies, bulk storage crops, etc) and our Investment Share Members will have access to our farm fresh food whenever its available, all year long. 

  • Added Perks you *may* experience as an Investment Share Member:  annual farm calendar available in December, fresh baked sourdough breads, whole pastured chickens, farm to table preserves we make from scratch.

  • Investment Share Members receive a 10% discount off all purchases made at the Rooted Table Collective throughout the duration of your program.

  • All CSA share members get our annual digital recipe book, and our new in 2024 produce storage and preservation guide.

The Full Farm Investment Share runs from April 2024 through until the end of March 2026 or until you use up your full $2500 value.

The cost for this share is $2500. As this is an investment into our farm meant to offer us the most benefit through early year investments, payment plans are unavailable for this share option.
