Members receive seasonal, fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs, dried beans and nuts, when available, 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.

Our harvest season typically runs from mid-May to mid-November. 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. 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 Small, Medium, or Large shares for pickup 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.

In the Delivered Boxed Share program, we offer three share sizes sizes (these shares are described more fully here). The boxes are delivered to host sites in our refrigerator truck, and each box contains assorted produce. In addition, 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.

Packaging

We are always tweaking our packaging methods, in order to get closer to achieving the goal of delivering the highest quality produce in the most sustainable packaging available at a reasonable cost.  To that end, we currently use Placon Evolutions line of EcoStar® food-grade recycled PET containers, with up to 100% post-consumer content.  We also use compostable produce bags and strongly encourage on-farm pick-up members to reuse their bags and berry containers.  Boxed Share members are encouraged to return their produce boxes for reuse.

How Much Does It Cost?

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