Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is the foundation of our Fruit & Vegetable program.
The CSA model allows community members to invest in our farmer training program, and in return, receive fresh local produce all season long. By selling CSA shares in the winter, the farmers get the upfront funds needed to purchase seeds, compost, tools, and other equipment to get set up for the growing season.
Registration for our 2023 CSA is closed.
CSA Share Information
The CSA runs for 18 weeks from June–October
Members receive a diverse assortment of just-harvested veggies, herbs, and other farm products each week
Members pickup their CSA on Wednesdays or Fridays at our Farm store located behind the campground office
Members enjoy a CSA newsletter every week that includes notes from the field, recipes, and produce storage tips
Vegetable CSA members enjoy $28 worth of organic produce each week. Expect salad and braising greens, heirloom tomatoes, an assortment of roots and alliums, fresh-cut flowers and so much more based on what is in season! All fruits, vegetables, and flowers are grown right here on our four-acre production plot and in our two greenhouses. Our production fields are managed by our Fruit & Vegetable apprentices, who are advancing their training to become the next generation of organic farmers. The fields provide educational opportunities for campers and day visitors, a space to experiment with innovative growing techniques, and opportunities to contribute to local food pantries. This work is made possible through your support of our CSA program!
Here’s How It Works:
Bring your own bags and “shop” in our Farm Store for your share! Each week our farmers will put a list in the store of the CSA produce for the week. You can select the produce from the display and pickup any additional items you may want to add! It is not possible to swap out any CSA items for other items, but if you would like to purchase additional produce you can add that on during your pickup.
We are MOFGA-certified organic.
Vegetables are grown with non-GMO and organic seeds and cultivated using reduced tillage and regenerative practices.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I pay by month?
The CSA model is meant to alleviate start-up costs for the farmer at the beginning of the growing season. Paying up front helps offset these costs for the farmers while providing you with the first selection of our quality products. Therefore, payments are received in full when signing up for your CSA share.
Where do I pick up my share?
134 Burnett Road, Freeport, ME 04032
CSA shares will be picked up at our new farm store behind the Campground Office at 134 Burnett Road. From downtown Freeport, turn on to Bow Street, across from LL Bean. Bow Street turns into Flying Point Road. After approximately five miles, turn right onto Lower Flying Point Road, and then another right onto Burnett Road, marked by a Wolfe’s Neck Center sign. You will pass the red Dairy Facility on your right before you approach the Campground Office. Please park in the two designated parking spaces marked “CSA Only”.
Do I need to bring my own bag to pick up my share?
Can I substitute something in my share for something different?
No, we will not be making any substitutions to CSA shares.
If I’m out of town for the week, can I pick up two shares the following week?
Sorry, this will not be possible. You are welcome to transfer your share to a neighbor, family member, or friend for the week that you are gone.
Should I be worried about produce running out before I get there?
Fear not! Any products in short supply will be set aside for CSA members only. Our farmers restock Farm Store produce daily.
What if I want to purchase additional items?
If there are additional items you’d like to purchase from the Farm Store, you may do so when you pick up your CSA!
Something’s come up and I can’t make my preferred pickup date this week. What do I do?
Please email us and we will coordinate your pick up.
What quantity of produce can I expect in my Vegetable CSA?
Members can expect to receive $28 worth of produce every week. For some members, $28 worth of produce a week is only enough to supplement the vegetables their family needs to eat on a weekly basis. Some of our members decide to buy two shares in order to feed a larger family.
