2013 Vegetable CSA
We are currently accepting members for our 2013 CSA season and we’d love to have you join. The CSA will be 20 weeks starting mid May and going through mid September. The base price for a full share is $500 and the base price for a half share is $275. You can make these payments via the paypal buttons above or an order form can be printed out from this website and mailed to us with a check.
Standard payment plans are designed as follows. A full share includes a registration payment of $65 and three installments of $150 each month, for three months, from the time of registration. A half share includes a registration fee of $35 and two installments of $125 each month for two months. Note that you are paying a little extra if you pay on the installment plan.
We do offer a flexible payment program if meeting any of these options would be burdensome. We do this regularly and ask you not to hesitate contacting us about designing a custom payment plan that works for you.
We are pleased to be offering Paypal options for signing up this season in addition to print and mail order forms. For Paypal orders there is a non-refundable convenience fee of $15 for full shares paid in full, $8.50 for half shares paid in full, $2.15 for full shares with the standard payment plan, and $1.35 for half shares with a standard payment plan.
**Please add your phone number to the notes section on paypal orders because all we get is your mailing address and e-mail through paypal. This has been helpful in the past for us to be able to contact you when you forget to pick up your box on your way home from work Wednesday evening You know who you are!
