2022 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 Full Share or a Half Share and the choice to pay upfront or as you go.
What Comes in a Share?
Each share will contain a combination of seasonal vegetables and herbs. A Half Share will typically contain four to six items and is great for veggie loving individuals or households of 2 to 3. A Full Share will contain 8 to 10 ten items and is great for veggie loving households of 2 to 3 or households of 4+. You can't customize your share but you will get to make choices throughout the season.
This year we will be growing a wider variety of vegetables, including: lettuce, beans, spinach and pak choi, rapini, fingerling potatoes, collard greens, peppers and cherry tomatoes and much more! Shares will also include herbs like basil, parsley, chives, sage, rosemary, oregano and cilantro.
Late August - Full Share: peppers, fingerling potatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, summer squash, broccolini, kale, carrots, and two of chives, oregano and cilantro.
Early July - Half Share : beans, green onions or green garlic, broccolini, turnips, spinach and basil.
