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,

or feel free to send us a message!

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!
