The 2014 Big Head Farm CSA program will be a multi-week program (*scheduled for 6/28/14 through 10/25/14, depending on weather) consisting of our organic vegetables and herbs. You also have the opportunity to obtain fruit and flowers! Each membership consists of one "Full", "Half" or "Solo" share of our vegetables and herbs. Or a full or half share of our organic blueberries or transitional apples!
We offer two ways to obtain your CSA share - pick up and delivery. Our Farmers Market schedule can be found here.
Full Veggie CSA Share ($550.00 per season) A full share will roughly be a bushel of veggies and herbs. It will vary in total weight from week to week based on what's ready.
Half Veggie CSA Share ($300.00 per season) A half share will roughly be one half bushel of veggies and herbs. It will vary in total weight from week to week based on what's ready.
Solo Veggie CSA Share ($175.00 per season) A solo share will roughly be one quarter bushel (a "peck") of veggies and herbs. It will vary in total weight from week to week based on what's ready.
Blueberry/Apple Shares - A Full Blueberry/Apple Share is $250.00 and a Half Blueberry/Apple Share is $125.00. Over the estimated 10 weeks of the fruit season we will bring you lots of blueberries (up to 5 lbs weekly) and apples (up to 10 lbs weekly).
Egg Shares (Full Egg Share is $110.00/season and a Half Egg Share is $55.00/season) - Egg shares are back!
You can get a half dozen eggs per week or a dozen eggs per week during the 18 weeks of our Veggie CSA.

* As with any CSA program, your "share" is a year-long investment in the local food movement and Big Head Farm - we share the risks (storms, disease, bugs, etc.) and the benefits (vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs, etc.). We will keep you apprised of the status of our crops as time passes. We will work hard to make your CSA experience the best it possibly can be. We will do our very best to strategically plant and harvest our crops so that you have a positively varied experience and that you enjoy the best vegetables, herbs and flowers we have to offer. Please remember that we need two somewhat unpredictable partners on our farm - nature and weather. Sometimes seeds don't germinate. Sometimes critters destroy crops (we have deer, turkeys, coyotes, rabbits, mice, moles, voles, raccoons, numerous birds, numerous insects, numerous plant diseases and fungi). Sometimes it rains too much/little. I'm sure you get the point.
In spite of these risks and the hard work, we still love what we do. Really!
