Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
We welcome you to become part of the Earth Sky Time Community Farm! Our CSA program facilitates a beautiful and sincere partnership between you, your food, the people who grow it and the land where it’s grown.
Prepaying for 20 weeks of our organic produce provides the capital we need up front when our seeds and supplies must be purchased. You support the local food movement, inspire our hard work, and enjoy the harvest all season long.
We raise hundreds of vegetable varieties, old favorites and exotic crops too. We start seeds early in our wood heated greenhouses, do succession plantings to keep the crops coming, and use high-tunnel hoop-houses to extend the season. Each week you can count on a wide variety of produce always grown with love and never with chemicals. Here’s how membership works:
You choose your veggies! When you pick up your share, you’ll find bushels of organic vegetables fresh from the field. You take what you need for the upcoming week, if you don’t like kale, don’t take kale. Want extra spinach or tomatoes instead, no problem. Grab scissors, pick your own flowers and herbs. CSA shares also include our fresh eggs. We offer two share sizes, our regular share is perfect for a family or a couple with a healthy appetite. We also offer a limited number of smaller shares (approx 2/3 the size) ideal for a single person or a family that doesn’t eat a lot of vegetables. The cost of one share for the 20 week season is $460, just $23 per week. The smaller share is $300 or $15 per week. A CSA share is an investment in your health and our community (and costs less than you’d spend at the store).
Pick up days are Tuesdays from noon to 1PM or Fridays from 4-6PM. Packed shares and home deliveries are available for folks with special needs. Our weekly newsletter blog lets you know what’s happening on the farm and provides delicious seasonal recipe ideas for your veggies. Our wood-fired breads, Hoomoos Za’atar, Pesto, and VT Goldburgers are available at a 10% discount for shareholders.
And we are continuing to offer our bread share. For $75 upfront, shareholders will recieve a weekly loaf of naturally leavened artisan bread baked right here in our wood fired oven. Our breads are made with locally milled certified organic flour. Our bread is served at many of the finest local restaurants and has gained quite a following at the farmers markets. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to eat fresh local bread from Earth Sky Time Farm.
Our farm is small by any measure, but our productivity is high, relying on our community of friends, interns and volunteers. We are proud to work with local schools, getting young people into the garden. We feed others and help others learn to feed themselves. We enjoy the honest work, appreciate the good food and strive to live gently on the earth. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting you soon.
