As a member of Springdale Farm you will receive the freshest possible, certified organic produce harvested by us and delivered to you!

We are now 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 share! And with each weeks delivery you can further customize your share, as well as order extras if you like.

​Harvie will make it easier for us to provide more choice and flexibility for you!

 Share benefits

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.

Delivery Flexibility

Vacation planned? No problem. You can easily put a “hold” on your share and schedule two shares on a different week, or sign-up for the Skipper Share and choose to skip 4 of the 22 boxes.

Payment Plans

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.
