Community Supported Agriculture

What is a CSA?

Organic Produce Franklin, NCCommunity Supported Agriculture (called CSA by many folks) is a direct connection between the farmer and the consumers. In a CSA, you have the unique opportunity to buy a share of the harvest before the growing season begins.

You pay for your farm fresh food delivery before it is harvested; then relax and enjoy the food that is delivered to you during the growing season! Your pre-purchase helps us with the start up costs each crop season – like buying seeds and plants, materials and equipment. It also gives us the security of planning our upcoming plantings and rotations; while knowing crops are sold, so we can better focus on growing them for you. In return, you receive farm fresh vegetables, herbs and fruits that are grown locally by your farmer…so let’s shake hands and get started today!

 

How Our CSA Works:

Through a CSA subscription, you can have the ease and convenience of enjoying a variety of fresh picked, premium quality, local produce items delivered to your neighborhood.

We offer three produce box subscription choices:
• Full-Share: $600
• Half-Share: $380 
• Quarter-Share: $240

You can pay in full, or you can pay the deposit (Full-Share subscription: $300/ Half-Share subscription: $190/ Quarter-Share subscription: $120) at sign up, and the remainder on or before June 1, 2017. You can purchase online, cash or check written to: Deal Farms – CSA.

 

What Can I Expect?

Your twenty-four week subscription share will be hand picked and packed in a box every week from approximately May 9th to October 17th, 2017. Expect from five to ten different items in your produce box each week! New for 2017 is the ability to customize your box each week! Every Friday night our online store will be updated with the products that will be available for Tuesdays delivery.  You will have until Monday at noon to log in, and pick the items that you want to have in your box.  If you forget or are late, you will receive your box as scheduled with the standard items that you would normally receive. You do not have to customize your box, boxes not customized will be just like they have in the past.

For customized orders, you will receive an invoice in your box stating your balance each week.  If you deplete your CSA balance, you can simply pay each week when you place your order for the remainder of the season.
