HOW THE CSA WORKS
Springdale Farm CSA
As a member of Springdale Farm you will receive the freshest possible, certified organic produce harvested by us and delivered to you!
The CSA season starts in early June, and continues until early November, for a total of 22 weeks. Find info below about our share sizes, delivery options, and other add-ons for your share. The shares are delivered in reusable plastic totes to our 26 different pick-up locations.
If you are wondering what a 'CSA' is or have questions about our program please check out our CSA FAQ page,

We are using 'Harvie' to manage our CSA
Harvie is a software platform that helps CSA farmers meet their customers' needs through a customizable farm share program. Each week's share will be based on your preferences. For example: don't like beets? You will never get them in your tote! And with each weeks delivery you can further customize your share, as well as order extras if you like.
Harvie makes it easier for us to provide more choice and flexibility for you!

Each share size description is approximate and depends on your eating habits!
Designed to feed 1 adult (possibly 2), a typical Small Share will include 5-8 different vegetables, per delivery
Designed to feed 2 adults (possibly 3), a typical Medium Share includes 7-10 different vegetables, per delivery.
Designed to feed 3 adults (possibly 4), a typical Large Share will include 9-13 different vegetables. The Large Share is twice the amount of the Small Share.

Reduced Food Waste
Because you are getting what you want, you’ll see less food getting tossed or composted which is going to ensure you are getting the biggest bang for your buck.
Vacation planned? No problem. You can easily put a “hold” on your share and schedule two shares on a different week.
Payment can be made in full at time of registration, or by the following payment plan: 25% at sign-up, 25% when deliveries begin, and the remaining 50% divided up evenly over the rest of the season.
Purchase Farm Extras
Order “extra” items we have available to put right in your share with just a few clicks of a button which means less trips to the grocery store and more time in your day.
