What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a partnership between local farmers and you, the hungry customer. Prior to the first harvest, you make a monetary commitment to New Roots, and in return, receive a weekly share of organically grown vegetables and fruits from July to October.

Your commitment enables New Roots Farmers to receive the support at the beginning of the season: allowing them to invest in their season’s crops, purchase seeds, materials and tools necessary for the year.

The New Roots Farm Box CSA will run for 14 weeks from July to October 2020 with weekly deliveries of produce right to your workplace.

Pricing & Size Options

The amount and type of items available in your share changes weekly based on what is seasonally available. Expect to receive at least 6-10 items in your share each week. We will always try to have a good balance of leafy greens, root vegetables and specialty crops (tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, peppers, etc).

Half Share | $280 - $20 per week | Good for 1 person who eats vegetables every day, or a couple who cooks at home most days of the week.

Full Share | $490 - $35 per week | Double the produce! Good for a family of 4-6 who frequently eat vegetables. OR split it between two households for the most bang for your buck!

We offer flexible monthly payment plans. You can spread your payments out between 3 months!
