2015 Winter CSA is now open for registration
What is it?
A harvest-share program known as CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), or a community of people who support a local farm. CSA members make a payment at the onset of the growing season in exchange for a share of the anticipated harvest. This initial capital helps the farm fund necessary supplies, seed and labor when it needs it the most. Once harvesting begins, members receive weekly shares of the fruits and vegetables.
Why should I join?
Eckerton Hill Farm is known for our specialty and heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables, many of which cannot be found in your typical grocery store. Membership has many benefits: to enjoy locally raised foods; expand the variety of foods in your diet; support sustainable farming; and simplify your food sources through add-on shares that include breads, eggs, cheeses, and mushrooms, all from local artisans to be picked up with your weekly CSA share.
How does it work?
Register for our Summer or Winter CSA and pick up your share of vegetables every week. Two share sizes are available; regular and large. A regular share has 5-7 items and is suitable for a couple or small family. A large share has 8-10 items and is suitable for a large family or a few people who eat a lot of veggies. In addition to vegetables you have the option of adding on eggs, bread, cheese or mushrooms. You may pick up your share at one of three locations; the farm, West Reading or Bethlehem. A typical share may look like this:
