What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture is a relationship that brings farmers and consumers together. By joining a CSA, people have the opportunity to enjoy seasonal eating and a close connection to their food source, while helping local sustainable agriculture flourish. Consumers who have become members of West Haven Farm CSA pay for a portion of the farm's expenses and receive a share of the harvest in return.

Your Share of the Harvest

We take great pride in offering the freshest, highest quality, well-washed produce available anywhere. We provide only those crops which are in season or store well. We plan very carefully to have a steady supply of staple vegetables as well as a variety of more unusual items, and always strive to grow the most flavorful varieties of vegetables available. Look at our Produce List for more details.

Recipes from shareholders and from us provide lots of cooking ideas. Weekly newsletters about the farm keep shareholders up-to-date on what's happening.

Each week's share includes a full selection of freshly picked farm-grown organic produce. Shareholders bag their own weekly portions from a farm-market-type display at either West Haven Farm or a location in Fall Creek. With advance notice, members may switch their preferred pickup site during the season. We are happy to specialize members' shares to meet their families' needs.

What's the Cost?

The cost for a Single Share in the CSA is $525 (sliding scale $425 to $625). We accept cash, checks and food stamps as well. Although we prefer that members pay in full at the beginning of the season, we are happy to work out individual payment plans. We also sponsor a few members every year through a small scholarship fund, composed of donations from other members. Finally, a few reliable, hardworking shareholders are eligible for a large discount in exchange for substantial help in the garden. Please contact us if you are interested in one of these options.

Shareholder Specifics

  • For approximately 24 weeks each year, from late May to early-November, a seasonally complete selection of 10 to 25 vegetables will be available to shareholders.
  • Share pickup will be each week at the farm on Tuesdays 3:30 to 9pm, and in Fall Creek on Wednesdays 3:30 to 6:30pm.
  • Each share provides enough produce for one to three people. Larger families and big vegetable fans can buy two shares at a discount.
  • At the Farm, U-pick flowers, herbs and other crops are available to all shareholders to pick at anytime.
  • We welcome shareholders to work with us in the garden or to just bring a picnic -- play in the sandbox and enjoy the view!
  • There are special shareholder events throughout the season -- kids are always welcome! We encourage all shareholders to spend at least one day each growing season working on the land.
