CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares have become a popular way for farms to market their wares directly to local customers.

CSA members buy a “share” of the farm’s production for a season. Shareholders receive a portion of the harvest as the season progresses. It can be a great way to connect with and support local farms and farmers!

Check back soon for information about our 2021 CSA Season!

Share Options

Vegetable CSA

Vegetable CSA shareholders enjoy $26 worth of a delicious organic produce each week, from our famous “Wolfe It Down Salad Mix”, to heirloom tomatoes, summer squash, and so much more based on what’s in season.  All fruits and vegetables are grown right here in our production plot and in our greenhouses, and are harvested fresh each week.  Our production fields are managed by our Fruit & Vegetable Interns who are honing their skills training to become the next generation of organic farmers.  The fields provide educational opportunities for campers and day visitors, contributions to local food pantries, and a space to experiment with innovative growing techniques. This work is made possible through your support of our CSA program.

$475/share

Our Fruit & Vegetable CSA is now full.

In order to maintain the health and safety of you and our staff, we have made some changes to this season’s CSA pickup process.

Here’s How It Works:

Weekly share pickups will begin the week of June 24, 2020. Pickups are held on Wednesdays and Fridays weekly, from 1-6pm.

When you arrive, a Campground Office staff member will meet you at your car.  Please remain in your car at all times.  Please either roll your window down with the glass remaining above your nose and mouth, or be wearing a mask when speaking with the WNC staff member.  You will be asked your name, and whether you are there to pick up a Fruit & Veggie or a Meat CSA share (or both).  The staff member will retrieve your share, and place it into the trunk of your car. All CSA shares will be pre-packaged; please do not bring your own bag.

Meat CSA

Our diversified livestock and poultry are free-range, raised humanely on lush oceanfront pasture free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. They are an integral part of our regenerative farm plan to keep our grasses vegetative and productive, our soils healthy, and our farmland utilized to its fullest potential.  When purchasing a Meat CSA, you will receive 15 pounds of pre-packaged, frozen meat each month, with a rotating selection of chicken, pork, and beef.

$500/share

Our Meat CSA is now full.

Monthly Meat shares are available starting on the 10th of each month from June through October, beginning Wednesday, June 10th.  Please pick up your monthly share within one week, by the 17th of each month.

If you purchased both a Vegetable and Meat CSA, we recommend planning your monthly meat pickup to align with your scheduled Vegetable pickup day.

We are MOFGA-certified organic and 100% chemical-free.

Vegetables are grown with non-GMO and organic seeds, cultivated using sustainable practices and without any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides.

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm interested in more than one type of share. Can I buy multiple shares?

Yes, absolutely! You are welcome to purchase the Vegetable or Meat CSA, or both. If you would like eggs, you can purchase in our Farm Store during your share pickup.

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 the Campground Office at 134 Burnett Road, located adjacent to the Farm Café on the northern part of our campus.  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?

All CSA shares will be pre-packaged; please do not bring your own bag.

Can I substitute something in my share for something different?

No, we will not be making any substitutions to CSA shares. 

We will make exceptions for any religious needs for the Meat CSA.

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 must do so prior to your visit through our online system.  When you arrive at the Campground Office, you can then pick up your store order in addition to your CSA share.

What happens if I’m going to be out of town and can’t pick up my share?

No problem! Send us an email so we know which neighbor, family member or friend is picking up your share.

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 $26 worth of produce every week. For some members, $26 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 2 shares in order to feed a larger family.

What quantity of meat can I expect in my Meat CSA?

Each month you will receive a 15 lb. selection of meat (chicken, beef, and pork) based on our inventory.

Is the meat organic? How are the animals raised?

Our meat is raised organically, however it is not certified organic by the USDA.

The livestock at Wolfe’s Neck Center are raised in a low stress, organic manner. They are given the best treatment and closely monitored everyday to ensure everyone is healthy and happy.

During the late spring, summer, and early fall the livestock are intensively rotated through our pastures where they enjoy luscious green forage.  They are also given a high quality organic grain. During the winter the animals are fed high quality, organic hay and baleage bales along with the organic grain.

Where is the meat processed?

Our meat is processed at three local processors:

  • Weston’s Meat & Poultry in Gardiner
  • Bubier Meats in Greene
  • Common Wealth Poultry Co. in Gardiner
