How Honey Brook Organic Farm CSA Works

Celebrating our 29th Anniversary in 2019!

Our membership sign-up season begins in December for the upcoming season. The 2019 applications for pick-up at our Pennington farm, our Chesterfield farm and our delivered Boxed Share program are under the appropriate webpages found under our "Join Us" drop down menu, or click here for the Pennington page, here for the Chesterfield page and here for the Boxed Share page, which has links to our two Boxed Share applications. We have plenty of shares available for all of our pick-up locations.

Members receive an assortment of seasonal, fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers once a week during the harvest season in exchange for their membership fee. Our produce is grown on certified organic fields in Pennington and Chesterfield, NJ. Some of our fields have been certified organic for over 30 years!Photography by Cari Ellen

Our regular harvest season typically runs from mid-May to mid-November. We also offer an extended season in our Holiday Harvest program for an additional fee. We grow over 60 types of crops and 350 varieties (including many unusual and heirloom varieties), allowing us to provide you with the greatest possible diversity of crops in each week’s offering. For information regarding our crop offerings and availability, see our Harvest Calendar.  We also offer a Holiday Harvest program, where members may receive crops such as root vegetables, winter squash, pumpkins and fresh greens through the end of December for an additional membership fee. Remember, all shares include PYO privileges! Yay!

How to Become a Member

If you are not currently a member, but would like to be placed on our mailing list to receive occasional informational emails, please use the form located in the right column of this page.

To join our CSA program, you’ll need to decide what size and type of membership is right for you: the Premium, Basic or Personal "choice" share, or the Individual or Family share for pick up at the Pennington, NJ farm or the Chesterfield, NJ farm, or a Delivered Boxed Share membership for one of our convenient sites located throughout New Jersey and Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

For on-farm pick-up members, the Personal share is an option to consider for a comparatively small amount of weekly produce. Personal shares are sized for one person and is a "sampler" share of our produce. An Individual share, our most popular size, is often purchased by small families (two - three adults with one or two small children) as well as couples. Family shares are often purchased by families with two or more adults, or more than two children. We also know that several of our members split one Family share between two families. This seems to be the perfect option for families that do not cook fresh vegetables every day of our season.

In the Delivered Boxed Share program, we offer four share sizes sizes (these shares are described more fully here). The boxes are delivered to host sites in our refrigerator truck, and contain assorted produce that has only been grown on our farms. During the height of the season, there may be items such as watermelon and pumpkins located outside of your box, in separate crates or boxes.

Sharing a Share

If you are planning to share a share, you need to obtain your share partner’s information to adequately complete the appropriate application form. You are encouraged to complete and mail your application quickly in order to be assured of getting the pick-up day you prefer.

If you opt for paying by check(s), we ask that members splitting a share issue only one check per payment. The person issuing the check will be considered the designated “Share Member” (see the Application Form). For example, all Share Partners write a check for their portion to the Share Member, and then the Share Member writes a check to the farm for the total amount due. Please be diligent about communicating with your share partner(s) throughout the distribution season regarding pick-ups.

Be careful while filling out your application. This information will be used to create your Membership Badge, communicate with you during the harvest season and enter your name on the sign-in sheet.

How Much Does It Cost?

Membership fees can be found on our applications, during our membership sign-up season.
