Welcome to the home page of our Abbott Farms CSA! We started our CSA in 2016 as a way to help our surplus garden vegetables find appreciative homes. The CSA has grown each year, and now we have about eight shareholders each summer.
Our 2021 CSA will run approximately 17 weeks, beginning in July and lasting through October. A full share costs $25 per week, or $425 for an 17-week season. A half share costs $15 per week, or $255 for an 17-week season. Our CSA baskets are larger than average: the full share will feed 4-6 people, and a half share will be plenty of veggies for 2-3 people. Each weekly basket will contain 8-14 different types of seasonal vegetables, including but not limited to kale, Swiss chard, lettuce, radishes, summer squash, turnips, green beans, cucumbers, many varieties of heirloom tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, beets, carrots, melons, celery, cabbage, celery, pumpkins, winter squash, and potatoes.
Shareholders will also get five or six kinds of freshly picked herbs and a bouquet of freshly picked flowers each week, along with a copy of the Abbott Farms CSA cookbook at the beginning of the season.
We have some openings available for the 2021 CSA season which will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please contact us before March 31st if you are interested.
