Clear Brook Farm has been conducting the Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) Program for 15 seasons. Our three, unique programs help support our efforts to continue providing healthy organic produce for our local community. While our Summer, Winter and Deep Winter CSA programs look very different, they are all great opportunities to help support our farm and your community.
Learn more about each unique program below!
While most CSA's give you a pre-selected box of produce once a week (similar to our Winter CSA), our Summer Share program is a "free choice" share which allows you the freedom and flexibility to visit our farm stand any time you choose, and purchase anything we sell at the farm stand during the season, be it plants, Clear Brook Farm organic produce, local cheese, baked goods, fruit, syrup, or anything else you choose. Plus you never need to worry about being away on vacation and missing a pick-up! We will have a "gift card" at the counter with your name and balance on it, and every time you make a purchase it will be deducted from your balance. By pre-purchasing a summer share you help Clear Brook Farm with spring startup costs including, seed, labor, fuel, and soils. In appreciation for your support of our farm by purchasing a CSA share the value of your purchase will be more than just the monetary value that you have paid. Depending on the size share you purchase and your signup date you will earn extra monetary credit on your card and also you will entitled to either 2 quarts(small share) or 4 quarts (large share) of free strawberries (Hopefully Pick-your-own if the Covid situation allows for safe picking)
All CSA members who sign up by April 1, will qualify for some free strawberries. Plus extra credit on your CSA card.
