How Does a CSA Work?
In essence the purchase of a farm "Share" gives the consumer fresh local produce all season long. By commiting to buy the vegetables, the consumer receives delicious, freshly picked, local produce at below the retail cost and the farmer reduces the time and money spent on marketing during the season and receives more of the actual food dollar. The consumer also caries some risk with the farmer, but also benefits. For example, if pollination is poor in the squash field, there will be few squash, but another crop will be more bountiful. A "Share" is basically like a subscription in that you pay up front (February) and then when the vegetables and strawberries are ripe, they are harvested, cleaned, and delivered/picked-up the same day, which guarantees the share members the finest quality available!
Berry Creek Farm's CSA
Pick-up of vegetables happens at Berry Creek Farm's farm Stand during regular farm stand hours (May-Oct.), or at Newport Natural Foods on Main Street in Newport, Vermont. Members who pick-up at Newport Natural receive a pre-packed box of vegetables (you have an option for choosing your vegetables for your box!) once a week in the afternoons from mid June through October. Those members who pick-up at the farm, shop at the farm stand and receive a 20% reduction on their tab. Members shopping at the farmstand may apply this discount towards all of our farmstand products including organic bread, yogurt, cheese, eggs, flowers, jams, honey, plants, salad dressings, seeds, and maple syrup. We plant our seeds according to our membership size. We have over 60 vegetable and fruit varieties offered! Included in the membership is the ability to pick-your-own green beans and wax beans at no extra cost (please see sign-up form). We also offer a newsletter and recipes. Berry Creek Farm CSA Members may sign-up for other options including chicken, beef, and pork, at an additional cost (please see sign-up form).
