Surowiec Farm started a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in 2011. A CSA is very simple. A member signs up and pays for a share (15 or 20 weeks). Applications are available in January of each season. Each member then picks up their weekly share (15 or 20 times) during the 30 week CSA season (May through November). Pick up is limited to once per week and dependent on number of weeks chosen.
Why consider a CSA, when you can shop at our farm stand anytime or attend one of the farmer’s markets? Typically, the selection at farmer’s markets greatly decreases after the first hour and the weather can reduce customer participation. When you commit to a CSA, you can buy and eat local, fresh picked produce all season, without the hassle of long lines and poor weather conditions. When a farm has a committed membership it also helps with our effort to be more sustainable, during the spring, when finances are tight.
Your share will include a good mix of fruit and vegetables throughout the season. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application (January through April) and more information. Please note that weather and growing conditions are factors in the availability of all our crops.
We offer two share sizes. A half share, which is suitable for single/couple and a full share, which provides produce for a family of 4. Overall, you will be receiving a minimum of a 10% return on your investment.
Our CSA season is 30 weeks (May through November). You have a choice of signing up for 15 or 20 non consecutive weeks. Share pick up is at our farm stand Monday through Sunday from 9 to 5 pm, rain or shine. We are closed on Tuesdays. The flexible week choice (15 or 20) gives you the opportunity to “skip” weeks due to vacations/commitments/seasonal preference.
You will be able to chose your own vegetables and fruit from the farmstand displays. We provide a lot of flexibility and choices each week. Your share will always be quality produce, which is picked fresh daily. You are also welcome to shop for additional produce, our own beef/pork, or local cheese, eggs, and more.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have additional questions regarding the CSA program. Please note our program fills up rapidly and we have a set limit for each CSA program.
Applications for our CSA season are available January 15 through April 15th. The program for that season is then closed until the next season, thank you!
