2019 CSA Options

At Barrett's Mill Farm, we offer four Vegetable CSA options: Main Season (20 weeks), Late Fall (4 weeks) and Extended Season (24 weeks), and Flex (20 pick-ups over the course of a 24 week season). We also offer a Pick-your-own Flower CSA. Pre-season investment in the farm is really important to the health of the business, so as a thank-you, members who sign up for our Vegetable CSA by March 15th will receive a discount!

We are planning to once again be able to offer discounted CSA memberships to SNAP recipients. We do not yet have sign-up forms available for the SNAP CSA, but if you would like more information on this program, email Lise at lise@barrettsmillfarm.com. If you are interested in contributing towards one of these reduced price shares or towards a gifted share for one of our community partners we have information on how to do so in our sign-up forms and our online store.


Main Season CSA

June 11th - October 26th, 2019
(20 weeks)

Pick-up days:

  • Tuesday 11am - 6pm

  • Thursday 11am - 6pm

  • Saturday 9am - 3pm

 

Barrett’s Mill Farm’s Main Season Vegetable CSA is a “market style” CSA. Over the course of the season, you will come to the farm once a week and choose from among a wide variety of vegetables in the CSA distribution area to fill your CSA bag. In addition to the vegetables that will be harvested for members, there will be a set amount of Pick-Your-Own crops (such as strawberries, peas, beans, cherry tomatoes and herbs) available most weeks of the Main Season.

All Main Season CSA members receive $25 Barrett's Bucks credit to spend in the Farm Store. New members will also receive a canvas CSA bag.

Cost: $695 ($725 after March 15th, 2019)

Extended Season CSA

June 11th - November 23rd, 2019
(24 weeks)

Pick-up days:

  • Tuesday 11am - 6pm until October 22nd (closed Tuesdays after October 22nd)

  • Thursday 11am - 6pm

  • Saturday 9am - 3pm

If you love to eat local organic veggies deeper into the fall, then our Extended Season CSA is for you. This extended 24-week CSA works the same as our Main Season CSA - it is "market style", so you will come to the farm once a week and choose from among a wide variety of vegetables in the CSA distribution area to fill your CSA bag. Pick-Your-Own crops will be available in addition to the CSA bag for most of the season, however due to colder temperatures in the later fall, PYO crops are usually unavailable by late October. As we get later into the season, we offer a few bulkier storage items (like winter squash or Brussels sprouts stalks) for you to take in addition to your CSA bag.

All Extended Season CSA members receive $25 Barrett's Bucks credit to spend in the Farm Store. New members will also receive a canvas CSA bag.

Cost: $830 ($860 after March 15th, 2019)

Flex CSA

June 11th - Nov 23rd, 2019
(20 pick-ups over the course of 24 weeks)

Pick-up days:

  • Tuesday 11am - 6pm until October 22nd (closed Tuesdays after October 22nd)

  • Thursday 11am - 6pm

  • Saturday 9am - 3pm

 

If you travel in the summer or are too busy to make it to the farm every week, the Flex CSA is a great new option. Flex CSA memberships include 20 weeks of CSA pick-ups over the course of a 24 week season. You choose which 4 weeks you would like to take off. The 20 weeks you choose to do your pick-ups will work the same as in the Main Season and Extended Season CSAs: you will fill your CSA bag with vegetables from the CSA distribution area, and during the summer and early fall there will also be Pick-your-own crops available in addition to the bag.

All Flex CSA members receive $25 Barrett's Bucks credit to spend in the Farm Store. New members will also receive a canvas CSA bag.

Cost: $735 ($765 after March 15th, 2019)

Late Fall CSA

October November 1st - 23rd, 2019
(4 weeks)

Pick-up days:

  • Thursday 11am - 6pm

  • Saturday 9am - 3pm

Much like in the Main Season, Late Fall Vegetable CSA members come to the farm stand once a week and choose from among a wide variety of vegetables to fill a CSA bag. Pick-Your-Own crops are usually unavailable later in the season due to colder temperatues, so in the late fall we instead offer several items for members to take in addition to what fits inside the CSA bag (for instance winter squash or Brussels sprouts stalks).

Cost: $175

PYO Flower CSA

We will contact members about the exact start date in early July, but peak flower season is usually mid-July to early September.

Picking days: Anytime during farmstand hours

  • Tuesday - Friday 11am - 6pm

  • Saturday 9am - 3pm

Come wander in our flower garden and choose your favorite blossoms to take home! Two mason quart jars will be provided for each PYO Flower Membership. You can choose when to pick anytime during farm stand hours, and you can pick as many bouquets as you like per visit until you reach the total number for your CSA (6 bouquets for a Small CSA and 12 bouquets for a Large CSA). 

All members pick bouquets into wide mouth quart jars. Depending on the type of flowers you pick and how many leaves you strip off the flowers, a wide-mouth mason jar can fit between 15 and 40 stems.

Cost: $100 for Large CSA (12 bouquets), $55 for Small CSA (6 bouquets)
