Boxed Shares

Delivered Box Shares
We bring the farm to your neighborhood

This page is for purchasing Community Supported Agriculture memberships for Honey Brook Organic Farm’s Group Boxed Share deliveries, home deliveries and customized box pick-up at our Pennington and Chesterfield farms. The 2020 Prorated Boxed Share application page is HERE! This is a link to our online partner, Harvie, so you will be leaving our website once you click the link. We still have shares for sale for pick-up or delivery for Sundays, Mondays and Saturdays (at our Chesterfield farm)!

If you would like to purchase a membership for pick-up at our Pennington or Chesterfield farms, that same Harvie webpage will allow you to purchase those shares as well.   

We deliver Boxed Shares weekly, for approximately 24 weeks, to several sites in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Members or business owners who have offered us the use of their garage, porch, etc. as a place to drop off pre-boxed shares of produce host these sites. Boxed Share members also enjoy pick-your-own privileges at one of our two farms (Pennington or Chesterfield, depending on which farm is closest to your pick-up site). We are looking to deliver to more communities!  If you have an interest in hosting and recruiting members for a new Boxed Share drop-off site for us for 2020 please contact our Boxed Share Coordinator at 609-737-8899, or email

We offer the following four Boxed Share sizes:  

Personal Box:  approximately 3-5 produce items (crops) per week, depending on how you set your preferences.  

Basic Box: approximately 6-8 produce items (crops) per week, depending on how you set your preferences

Premium Box:  approximately 9-12 produce items (crops) per week,  depending on how you set your preferences. This option has more variety and overall quantity than the Basic box.   

Deluxe Box: 9-12 produce items (crops) per week, depending on how you set your preferences.  Largest size delivered on our Boxed Share program. More variety and overall quantity than the Premium box (box is depicted below, with fall produce).  Image title

While the produce will be delivered in boxes, depending on share size, please know that at certain times of the season the boxes may not be completely full, and at other times of the season, there may be additional produce located outside the box, such as pumpkins, cabbage and watermelon. Please know that during the first three weeks of the season, the above-listed weights and crop diversity may be a little light, as less weighty crops, such as lettuce and kale, may be the only crops mature enough for harvest at that time.

New for this season is the ability for you to customize the produce contents of your box!  This will allow farm staff to grow more of what you want and reduce food waste. Read more about this from our partners at Harvie HERE. You also will be able to purchase extras from our farm, during times when you may be entertaining or "putting up" for the off-season, 

You will also be able to purchase "add-ons" from other farmers and vendors such as: 

OUR STANDARD DELIVERED BOXED SHARE PROGRAM

In this program, boxes of mixed produce are dropped off at various group drop off sites throughout New Jersey and Bucks County, PA.  This is the program we've been offering for over twenty years.

In this program, the boxes are pre-packed by farm staff, so no need to box your own at your pick-up site.  The boxes are delivered to host sites in our refrigerator truck, and contain assorted produce that has only been grown on our farms.  As always, all produce is 100% certified organic. The Deluxe Box is perfectly sized for about three to four adults with average vegetable eating habits; the Premium Box is appropriate for two to three adults; the Basic Box is suitable for two adults, or one small family; and the Personal Box is designed to accommodate an individual or couple who often eats out. Again, during the height of the season, there may be produce such as watermelon, cabbage and pumpkins located outside of the box, in separate crates or boxes.

What do the boxes look like?

From top to bottom, the Personal, the Basic, the Premium and the Deluxe box are shown below:

PICK YOUR OWN CROPS INCLUDED!!

Image title

Also included in your Delivered Boxed Share fee are weekly pick-your-own privileges to the pick-your-own crops at either the Pennington or Chesterfield farm (you will be assigned one of these PYO farms depending on which Boxed Share site you choose, download the PYO location chart HERE). The This Week’s Distribution and PYO page of our website lets you know what’s available for pick-your-own harvesting from week to week. We will occasionally harvest some of the pick-your-own crops for you, such as strawberries, hot peppers and green beans, and include them in your box. However, please try to set aside a few days each season to visit the farm to do you own pick-your-own harvesting, since nothing compares to the freshness of a fresh-picked strawberry or snap pea! Many of our members tell us that the CSA membership is still a good value even if they don’t harvest PYO crops.

Boxed Share members receive a weekly email that lists and describes the produce selection for the week, allowing members to plan their weekly meals and includes at least one recipe. It is essential that Boxed Share members read their weekly emails, in order to know if there are changes to procedures or if there are items outside their boxes for pick-up. Delivered Boxed Share members also enjoy reading our monthly online newsletter, The Local Harvest and participating in our events. 

Membership Confirmation and Members’ Handbooks

Wednesday Boxed Share Handbooks are HERE. Weekend Boxed Share Handbooks are HERE. The Handbook for Tuesday members is HERE.

Boxed Share members receive an email in May/early June with directions to their pick up location, and confirming their pick-up day. Members are encouraged to read it prior to your first pick-up day.

It is really important for members to read their Handbook. The Handbook is a member’s “owners manual” and answers commonly asked questions about the farm, i.e., how to store produce, what to do when you get to your pick-up site and pick-your-own harvesting rules, etc. Please keep in mind that if you have additional questions, you can always call the Veggie Hotline during office hours (during the delivery season, office hours are Monday through Thursday, 9am-5pm; & Friday, 9am-1pm).

First Pick-Up

The start date of the distribution season varies from year to year depending on the weather, but is usually sometime in early June. For the exact date of the first pick-up and the start of pick-your-own strawberries, please visit our website, Facebook page or look for an email from the farm starting May 15th. The first pick-up is sometime after May 23rd. Again, it is really important for members to read each email sent to them from the farm.
