To sign up for the 2020 CSA shares, please visit our farm shop.

What is a CSA?

A CSA is a weekly share of produce. Any subscribers to the program receive a sampling of what Beckett Farms has to offer. 

Our program…

We offer weekly pick-ups for clients to swing by the farm and pick up their pre-filled reusable bag of fresh produce that is available to pick that week.  If what you’ve read from above sounds interesting to you, feel free to try it out.  We have:

  • The Traditional CSA – pre-packed weekly box of produce with a Wednesday pick up at the farm, or for delivery at your office
  • CSA Cash – a flexible, prepaid option that allows you to pay for your produce while still allowing you to pick what produce you want, when you want it

The Traditional CSA is designed where you prepay for a box of produce and pick that up each Wednesday on our farm. Our CSA boxes are repacked for you, but due to increasingly stringent food safety laws, we are no longer able to pack your food in a bag to grab and go. You will remove the produce from your bin each week and pack it in one of our reusable bags or use one of your own. Pick ups will be 3 – 6 each Wednesday during the season:

  • Early Season Share (June 17 – August 26), $400
  • Late Season Share (September 2 – October 28), $350
  • Bundled Share (June 17 – October 28), $700

For pictures of what the shares look like, see an album from an earlier season here.
