HOW TO JOIN OUR CSA
ABOUT US AND CSA SHARES
House in the Woods CSA is a certified organic Community Supported Agriculture farm just south of Frederick, Maryland. We grow a wide variety of vegetables, mostly heirloom varieties, and also some herbs and flowers. Harvest pickup day is every Friday at the farm for 20 weeks from mid-May through September, with Half Shares picking up every-other-week. We have a list of vegetables we tend to grow (may vary from this list), listed at What We Grow.
The fee for 2011 is $600 for a full share (every Friday for 20 weeks) and $385 for a Half Share (10 every-other-week pickups)
We are a very small CSA that prioritizes the whole farm experience. We are looking for members who want to eat local vegetables seasonally during our growing season, and to participate in growing it. For this reason, we seek membership that will pick up their vegetable share at the farm, and are committed to helping out on the farm a couple times during the season (2-3 hours twice during the season). Some members come to social Farm Hands Days with potluck meals, others come at their convenience for more solo worktime. Members, including children, are involved in almost all aspects of the farm. All enjoy the experience and consider the participation a valuable membership perk. Some CSA's don't request participation and these will be a better fit for some people.
WORKING SHARES AND INTERNSHIPS
All members of our CSA help out on the farm a couple times each season, but we also offer a Working Share which is a more intensive responsibility, in exchange for a share of the harvest. A three-hour work day earns a veggie pickup--so that is 20 workdays (60 hours). Work must be done in advance of the veggie pickup, whether it is a previous day, packed into spring planting time, or the few hours of harvest time before the pickup. Inquire within!
