2023 CSA Program
Community Supported Agriculture
Community Shared Agriculture or CSA is a common way for farmers to sell the produce we grow over the course of a season directly to our customers. Typically farmers are paid for the cost of a season early in the spring and in return we provide a "share" of the vegetables we produce throughout the growing season.
Lucky Bug Farm offers members the option of a Regular Share or a Large Share and the choice to pay for your shares upfront or as you go.
At a Glance
Each share will contain a combination of seasonal vegetables and herbs. A Small Share will contain exactly four items each week and is great for individuals and smaller households. A Regular Share will typically contain six to eight items each week and is great for veggie loving individuals or households with 2-4 people. A Large Share will contain nine to eleven items each week and is great for veggie loving households of 2-4 or households with 4 or more people. You can't customize your share each week but you will regularly get to choose between a variety of vegetables to pick the ones you eat most.
This year we will be focusing on growing leafy greens, onions, salad mix, root vegetables like turnips, carrots and beets and of course a good variety of tomatoes. There will also be more cucumbers and we have added summer leeks to our crop plan. Expect to see: heads of lettuce, pak choi, salad mix, fingerling potatoes, collard greens, peppers, cherry tomatoes, green onions, swiss chard, kale and more! Most weeks shares will also include herbs like basil, parsley, chives, sage, oregano and cilantro.
