Want to fed yourself and family healthy, local produce reliably? Our share may be for you. Our CSA is simply this: a subscription to the weekly bounty from our farms. Our CSA features a lot of the most loved vegetables, fruits and greens with which you already eat and cook. We also introduce you to great new veggies, and provide you with the support to use and cook all of your share each week.
2018 CSA Share Program
Purchase your share by January 15th and receive a complementary two week membership in the spring.
Shares will start mid June and continue until mid October.
Pick up at St. Ann's from 4:15 to 5:30PM. Or Saturdays at New Mercies Farm from 10AM to 1PM.
We can also bring your share to the Chester Sunday Farmers Market.

Your share will have 7-9 different vegetables and fruits each week, with cooking ideas and nutrition information. As part of your share you will have access to our farm extras and seconds, you can take as much as you can use. Your share is transferable, so if you cannot pick up, you can gift your share to someone else. Sunday afternoon unclaimed perishables in your share will be donated to Free Store Connecticut or the Shoreline Soup Kitchen.
