Large Vegetable Share: Our large share is intended to feed a family who enjoys preparing and eating a diversity of produce. A large share entitles you to fresh, seasonal produce containing 9-12 items each week. A large share runs for 20 consecutive weeks, from June 11th through October 22nd.
Medium Vegetable Share: Our medium share size is suitable for a family who may not eat a large amount of produce in a week. A medium share entitles you to fresh, seasonal produce containing 5-7 items each week. A medium share runs for 20 consecutive weeks, from June 11th through October 22nd.
Bi-Weekly Vegetable Share: Our Bi-weekly share entitles you to a large share of fresh, seasonal produce every other week of the 20 week season.
Summer Vegetable Share: Our summer share gives our members the option to enjoy fresh produce during the heart of the growing season. A summer share is the same size as a large share each week, but only runs for 12 weeks. Starting from June 11th through August 27th, the summer share is a great option for families who enjoy fresh produce during the summer.
Farm Fresh Eggs: This year we will be offering Egg add-ons to your shares.
Fresh Fruit: Our seasonal fresh fruit add-on provides you an option to add locally grown fruit to your share. We grow blueberries, cantaloupe, strawberries, and watermelon on the farm and will bring in apples, peaches, pears, and plums from local farmers we know and trust. This add on can be added to ant of the above vegetable shares.
Payment: For the 2020 season, the price of a large share will be $700, a medium share will be $400, a summer share will be $425, and a bi-weekly share will be $350. We encourage our members to pay for their share in full upfront. In doing so, you will receive a 10% discount on your vegetable share if you sign up by March 15th or a 5% discount if you sign up by April 15th. Their are no discounts for egg and fruit shares. Paying upfront helps your farmer by allowing us to be able to purchase all supplies necessary before the season begins, so when the season starts, we are focusing solely on growing your veggies! We do not want the upfront payment to stop people from joining! If it is hard to make the payment upfront, we offer payment plans throughout the year. Credit card payments are accepted. We thank you for your upfront payment—it’s what makes Community Supported Agriculture work!
Pick-up: Your shares are picked up on Thursdays at out farm, 937 Mill Road, Lehighton, between 9am-10am or 4pm-6pm.
If these times are not able to be made, arrangements may be made with your farmer. If a pickup cannot be made for the week, it is the responsibility of the shareholder to make other arrangements to get their share for the week, either by having someone pick it up for them, or making prior arrangements with your farmer.
Member Agreement: I have read and understand the details of Foothill Farm’s 2020 CSA. I commit to support Foothill Farm’s growing season financially from early June -late October through the purchase of a CSA share. I realize that each season is unpredictable, and despite planning, dedication, and hard work, there are many naturally occurring variables (weather, pests, etc.) that could possibly affect my share. I agree to take part in the risks and (more often) rewards involved in chemical-free, sustainable farming.
I have read and understand it is my responsibility, or that of a friend or family member, to pick up my share at the designated location and time. If I am unable to do so, I will notify my farmer and my share will be donated to a food bank or other community food program. In return, Foothill Farm will provide me with 20 consecutive weeks of seasonal, high quality, fresh produce that is grown without synthetic fertilizers or chemicals. A weekly newsletter will be e-mailed to me with exciting recipes and variety descriptions, as well as ‘happenings at the farm’. My farmer will be available throughout the season to answer questions, receive feedback, and address concerns.
