Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program gives you access to the freshest local produce around, and by purchasing a share, you directly support the farm and it’s students throughout the growing season!
*Any boxes remaining out at the sites at 7:30am on Thursday will be removed. If you are not able to pick-up your box while you are out of town, please let us know ahead of time so that we can keep the produce from going to waste!
Q: I need financial assistance, are there any options for me?
A: We offer need-based discounts! Please contact us at email@example.com to learn more. You may also pay in installments, but full payment for the whole season is due by the first pick-up on June 7th.
Q: What Happens If I go on vacation or miss a pick-up?
A: Due to health and safety regulations, any produce remaining at the sites at 8am Thursday will need to be composted. If you are not able to pick-up your box while you are out of town, have a friend pick it up or let us know ahead of time so we can keep the produce from going to waste. We have many students who would gladly eat this delicious produce rather than seeing it get tossed!
Q: What would be an example of a typical box?
A: August bounty; Heirloom tomatoes, salad greens, basil, hot and sweet peppers, melons, and kale.
“The benefits I experienced as a CSA member included a much greater variety of locally produced, organic vegetables and herbs than I had made a part of my diet in the past. It also provided an opportunity to share the bounty with family and neighbors. I became good friends with my neighbors and shared meals! The variety of vegetables led naturally to my cooking a greater variety of meals….and when tomatoes were plentiful, I learned to can them!”
“The UW Farm CSA was an incredible way to connect with the seasons and support urban farming! This is by far the best CSA we have ever participated in, and each box was like unwrapping a gift. There was a huge variety of delicious vegetables each week- we loved experimenting with new produce and recipes thanks to this CSA. We’re glad we could support the UW Farm, and look forward to the next season.”
