Savings through Dec. 31 make a CSA share a perfect gift
What says I love you more than giving the gift of good food and healthy eating? Give a share to everyone on your list, including yourself! Now is the time to get discounted pricing. Our payment plan option allows you to guarantee lower pricing without paying everything up front. The Save My Spot Discount involves making the first payment by Dec. 31 with full payment not due until April.

We do not have all of our pick-up locations and routes finalized yet. When ordering, you will select a regional option and we will follow up with you in the spring to finalize your location. The only exception to this is if you choose to pick up your share at the Miller Farm in Middlefield. If this is your preference, select "Farm" instead of a regional option. Click here to sign up now.

You will see these two options when you are ordering: 

Early sign-up - regional locations to be determined later
Early sign-up  - pick up at our farm
Sign up for Save My Spot level until Dec. 31. In the payment area, if you select to pay all at once (rather than with a payment plan) the extra discount for full payment will be applied. You have the option of paying with check or credit card; your check must be postmarked by Dec. 31 to take advantage of the discounted price. An additional savings of $50 is applied to those picking up at our farm location.

Pricing is as follows:

Early Bird Discount (pay in full by Dec. 31)
Small share - $290*
Medium share - $435*
Large share - $720*

Save My Spot Discount (Make first payment by Dec. 31 with full payment due by April)
Small share - $300*
Medium share - $450*
Large share - $750*

2016 Pricing
Small share - $310
Medium share - $465
Large share - $775

*Because our software calculates discounts based on a percentage, the total cost may include a few extra cents.
