Winter CSA 2019-2020

Winter CSA Program Details

Boldly Grown Farm specializes in growing fall and winter crops. Our CSA is a chance for you to receive a biweekly supply of high-quality, locally grown, organic veggies during the typical off-season. (If you missed the primer on CSAs, check it out here!)

What's in a share?  

 

Our CSA share consists of 12 biweekly boxes, each containing approximately 8-10 different items. This includes both storage crops (carrots, beets, winter squash, potatoes, onions, shallots, garlic, cabbage, etc.) and freshly harvested items (kale, collards, Swiss Chard, broccoli, cauliflower, radicchio, purple sprouting broccoli, etc.). Value-added products like sauerkraut, pickled peppers, dried peppers and chili flakes brighten up the winter months.

 

We enjoy sharing our love of food and cooking with our members, and each box is accompanied by an e-newsletter with tips, recipes and produce information. We also provide members with a storage guide to maximize the life of your veggies.

Boxes aren't customizable, but each drop site has a swap box stocked with a few extra veggies so members can trade out items if they wish. 

Share size  

 

We offer one share size that's delivered every other week. We estimate this share works well for 2-4 people. We have satisfied members ranging from individuals to families depending on how many veggies they like to eat. Check out some of the photos and sample boxes on this page to get an idea of the quantity of veggies provided in each box. Visit our FAQ for more on share size.

Cost  

 

The winter CSA share is $528.

Financial Aid Fund

We believe that healthy, local, organic food should be available to everyone. We also realize this is a financial challenge for many people. We donate a full share each season to a local family, and we've also created a member-driven Financial Aid Fund to help make our program accessible to those who could not otherwise participate in our CSA.

 

We invite our members to contribute to the Financial Aid Fund as they are able. At our discretion, we will use it to offset some or all of share cost for members who express need for financial support. 

 

Your support makes a big difference in our community and helps increase access to fresh, local food. Look for the option to contribute to the fund during the registration process.

 

Registration, Payment and Refunds

We use an online software to manage our CSA. You will need to create an account to join and pay. We encourage you to sign up early to ensure there is space at the drop site of your choice.

 

The share cost can be pro-rated for up to two pre-planned absences that are communicated to us prior to registering. See the CSA Member Agreement for details. Depending on space at our drop sites, we'll accept registrations after the program has begun and will prorate the cost based on remaining dates. 

 

We accept e-checks (ACH transfer), credit cards, and paper checks. Payment for your share is required to secure your spot. We appreciate your payment for the full share cost up front—this helps us immensely with the season's production costs. If cost is a barrier, please contact us about arranging a payment plan or accessing the Financial Aid Fund.

Please see our CSA Member Agreement for our policies on absences, missed boxes and refunds/cancellations. We encourage you to review all of the CSA information on our website before you join to make sure it's a good fit. Your registration confirms you understand and accept the information on our website and the CSA Member Agreement
