Value-Added, 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 65 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 interesting, less well known crops and varieties. On average, Full Shares receive 9-12 pounds of produce weekly, Medium Shares receive 6-8 pounds of produce weekly, and Half Shares receive 9-12 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 the 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!
Since 2004 our farm has been CSA focused and all of those hard worked, hard earned hours has given us the true benefit of experience, which we hope to pass on to you in the form of quality produce.
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 some flowers!
Produce Pick-up
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, however you may temporarily switch your pick up day by notifying us by 5pm Sunday of the week you need to adjust.
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 arrayed in bins on tables in the pick up room. 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.
Membership in Anchor Run CSA will not only enrich your table, but also deepen your sense of community and connection with the land. We host potluck dinners with a social as well as an occasional educational component. These help us meet and greet one another as we enjoy nature's bounty transformed into delectable dishes.
Involvement in the CSA, beyond the cost of membership, is vital to sustain our community farm. It is also lots of fun working with the farmers and your neighbors and getting to know them better!
To be completed over the course of the growing season, each membership household for the main season can reduce their share cost by committing to perform a minimum of (8) eight hours of work/Full Share, (6) six hours of work/Medium Share, and (4) four hours of work/Half Share. Jobs range from planting, harvesting, and weeding to helping with social events, and delivering donations. Your help is most appreciated early in the season (May and June). You will reap the benefit of your time and talents later in the year! Workshifts are organized by the farmers with postings and signups on the website. Workshifts are announced in the weekly newsletter. Instructions for signing up are here.
Essentially, as an Anchor Run CSA member you will not only eat healthier, but you will learn about farming, cooking, preservation, and community.
Each spring we host an orientation day at the farm for new and returning members to go over protocol, meet the farmers, walk through the u-pick fields, and answer any questions.
