picture goal is to provide a variety of items each week and to not
overwhelm members with too much of one thing. We are committed to
providing each share with a fair measurement of produce. We will track
every item in your share to ensure you are getting your money’s worth
according to fair market prices. No membership price adjustments can be
offered for weeks you cannot pick up, but a friend can pick up for you. To
help spread the membership cost, it is possible to pay in two
installments. Final CSA share prices will be set in the next week or so,
once we decide on the program length.
of vegetables you receive is also dependent on growing conditions that
vary from season to season. Our farm is a biological system that is
dependent on weather and other environmental factors, and as such there
is risk of crop failures. Because we plant a diversity of vegetable
crops, members can always expect wholesome food, even if there are
growing setbacks with particular crops.
provide our favorite recipes each week to inspire your creative use of
the vegetables in your share. We encourage members to share recipes with
other CSA members at pickups and through our weekly emails.
Somerset Farm CSA member you become a steward of local farmland and

you will show your support if it’s right for you!
