CSA sign ups are live!


I have great news! It’s time to sign up for the Farm at St. Joe’s CSA program again! Both the Summer and Fall sign-ups are live! If you haven’t heard about our CSA program, see the bottom of the post.11218169_1092881110723814_2659495670044168339_n

Who St. Joseph Mercy Employees. We will take 45 participants

When

Summer June 29-Sept 14

Fall Sept 21-Dec 14

 How This is a self-serve CSA, meaning that you will be able to pick your shares (a bag of produce) up from a cooler at the Farm anytime from 11am on Wednesdays to 9pm Sundays. Here’s a kinda goofy tutorial video on how to pick up your share.

Cost The cost is $20/week. We ask that you pay in full at or before the first pick up.

Summer is $240 for a 12 week share

Fall is $260 for a 13 week share

To join the CSA:

  1. Sign up using these forms:
    1. Summer
    2. Fall
  2. Payment options include.
    1. Come to the Wednesday Farmer’s market (11-1) and pay with cash, check, credit card or payroll deduct.
    2. Bring cash or check (made out to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital) to the Farm.
    3. If you are a resident, please talk to Matt Malone.

*Definition: If you haven’t heard of them, CSA, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture, programs are a way for farms to connect directly with customers. Typically, farms offer a set number of “shares” which customers can purchase at the beginning of the season. Then customers come pick up their share each week for a set number of weeks. This is a great model for all involved, farmers get upfront capitol when they need it most and consumers get ultra-fresh, local produce.

Our program is collaborative! We partner with Green Things Farm and Seeley Farm to provide a wide diversity of crops.

Let me know if you have questions!
