Anchor Run Farm's CSA Style
We're a traditional CSA-only farm so 100% of our produce and effort is devoted to our members.
CSA Members can choose which size share best satisfies their needs from the options below. We offer on-farm pick up on 3 separate days each week. Members may switch pick up days or weeks if they miss or are on vacation. Included with each share size is the option to participate in minimal farm work to receive a discount.
On pick up days produce is displayed in bins in the pick up room in our converted barn for you to select from. Options and amounts are specified on harvest boards directly behind the produce. Universally loved items like tomatoes, onions, carrots, lettuce, peppers, cucumbers, etc. are typically given to all members. More unique items like celeriac, kohlrabi, dandelion greens, herbs, etc. are given as choices so you can select what you want. Ultimately we strive to give you as much choice as possible.
Included with each share is a portion of the harvest that the farmers freshly harvest and wash on your pick up day. The other portion of the share is u-pick: items that you yourself can collect from the field. These items are intentionally planted together in fields closest to the pick up room and parking lot. These items include strawberries, peas, raspberries, blackberries, beans, edamame, flowers, perennial herbs, etc.
2018 Membership Costs and Pick Up Schedules
Our share prices have remained unchanged since 2008.
(Wrightstown Township residents receive a 5% discount on Anchor Run CSA shares because a portion of their local taxes helps preserve and maintain the 100-acre open space we're a part of.)

Organically Grown Food at an Affordable Price
  • We believe in fairness, quality, taste, and value. As a CSA member, you receive a share of the farm harvest each week. All of the produce we grow is for our CSA members. We have a predetermined, finite number of CSA members and we design our crop plan to meet the produce needs of our membership with a built in margin for error. In 2017 we had a total of 42 weeks of produce pick up for our members. 250 members came each week for the Main Season, 100 members for the Late Fall, and 75 members for the Winter. Membership is intentionally limited at these numbers; we've been fortunate to sell out each year. CSA prices have remained the same since 2008.
  • Members receive a satisfyingly diverse array of produce each week including crowd pleasing staples as well as unique crops and varieties. On average, Full Shares receive 10-14 pounds of produce weekly, Medium Shares receive 7-10 pounds of produce weekly, and Half Shares receive 10-14 pounds of produce every other week. When there are bumper yields of items you'll receive the benefit. For example, you might receive 10 pounds of tomatoes for a week or two during the peak, watermelon for a month and a half, or 20 pounds of sweet potatoes over a month or so. Our goal is to provide you with more than what you're paying for, to give you as much choice in the pick up room as possible, and to provide you with kitchen staples.
  • The CSA model is meant to be mutually beneficial for members and farmers. Because all of our members pick up at the farm, do u-pick at the farm, and work with us in the fields each season, we have a direct relationship with our members and community. We'll send you a survey at season's end for your feedback. You can come to our monthly potlucks and classes. We work for and with you!
More About How CSA Works
We encourage members to bring their families to the farm when they pick up their vegetables. Stay awhile and talk to your friends; stroll around the fields; pick flowers!
Produce Pick-up & U-pick
  • During the Main Season CSA the farm is open for vegetable pick-up on Monday or Thursday from 1-8pm and Saturday 10am-12noon. U-pick is available 8am-8pm Monday through Sunday of your pick up week. In anticipation of the harvest we ask that you choose a designated pick-up day for the duration of the season. You may temporarily switch your pick up day by notifying us by 5pm Sunday of the week you need to adjust and if you miss your pick up, we are happy to reschedule with you.
  • HALF Share members will be assigned "Week A" or "Week B" and pick up and do u-pick every other week. FULL Share and Medium Share members will pick up and do u-pick every week.
  • On pick up days the produce is displayed and labeled in bins on the pick up room tables. Allotments for the produce are written on boards directly behind those tables. U-pick locations and quantities are designated in the pick up room as well.
More Than Just Great Produce
  • Along with your produce, each week you will receive an e-mail newsletter. The newsletter will keep you informed about what's happening at Anchor Run CSA. The newsletter includes information on the week’s expected harvest, notes from the field, potluck dinners, recipes, and vegetable storage and freezing tips.
  • We encourage you to attend farm potluck dinners that we host throughout the main season. Deepen your connection to your farm and community and enjoy some good food!
  • Longtime members host free educational workshops to enhance membership experience. Workshop subjects include: how to use your share, how to make your own fermented veggies and drinks, herb garden walks, and more.
  • Each spring we host a New Member Orientation Day in late April or early May to go over CSA pick up details, meet the farmers, walk through the u-pick fields, and answer any questions members may have.
