CSA pick-ups are at our Barn farm store, located on Boutin Rd ……off of Shelburne-Hinesburg Rd (convenient to many commuters). The farm store opens mid-May and closes October 31st. We have coolers for produce and eggs, freezers for chicken, bins for vegetables, and cases for preserves, honey, and maple syrup.
Our CSA is run a little differently from traditional CSAs. Members buy a seasonal subscription and in return receive a set number of points/week. All produce at the farmstand will have a label with price (non- CSA members) and points (for CSA members). Members will have their choice of vegetables, fruits, eggs, chickens, preserves, and baked goods. Product points vary with availability. For example, in early July a pound of tomatoes may cost 2 points…… while in mid-August when tomatoes are plentiful- a pound of tomatoes may cost only 1 point. If brussel sprouts are not favored then you may avoid them… But if you LOVE brussel sprouts you can pick up a larger quantity! Included in the CSA is pick-your-own Herbs from cutting garden in front of the barn entrance. Each member must pick up during the specified week (example: July 3 – July 9th). Simply find your member Id, the date, and check-off the box!
CSA subscriptions may be prorated for member vacations with pre-season notice. Those weeks will be blacked out on the pick-up sheet. Our permissive pick-up schedule is especially advantageous for people with very full schedules. Our CSA is based on the honor system, please be courteous to your fellow members. Most days a family member will be present for assistance.
