How does the CSA Work?
We use a point system to let you choose your weekly CSA “box”. So how many points do you need for a week?
Think about 1 point as a pound of meat, or a pint of veggies, or a dozen eggs, or a gallon of milk. So how much does your family eat in a week? If you will eat 3 pounds of meat and 5 pints of veggies per week, just pick that on the order form!
You can also choose to use more points to get higher priced items like steak, or get more for your money with less expensive items like chicken.
Use your points to pick out what you want each week. You can order more or less each week, or even skip a week. Just use your total points as you need too throughout the season. You’re in control!
What happens if I buy too many points? Any unused points are given back to you as a FULL CREDIT towards the next season, so you’ll never loose them!
What happens if I buy too few points? You can buy more points at any time!
By purchasing a CSA, you get guaranteed food all season at a cheaper cost, and you get to pick what you want!
Still confused on how the point system works? Click HERE for the live order form our current members use. Go shopping for the week and see how many points you might need! Product availability changes with the seasons, so the options will change.
