CSA Frequently Asked Questions

All about Southgate Farm's CSA


Southgate Farm's CSA: Quick Facts!

Weekly box features the best of what is in season! Box is mainly vegetables, but sometimes features a local product from another farm, such as honey or fresh bread. 
Shares value $25-$30 each week.

Pickup is in the barn, next to the Farm Shop.

In 2024, we will be offering two different CSAs: 

Spring Share

  • 8 week subscription

  • Wednesday evening pick-up, 4-6pm

  • May 8th - June 26th

  • $200, paid pre-season

  • Spring is heavy on salad mixes and other products featured in our shop. We may have some carrots, beets and cucumbers by mid-June, but tomatoes and other "hot weather" crops won't be ready until the summer/fall CSA.​

Summer/Fall Share

  • 17 week subscription

  • July 10th - Nov 2nd

  • Wednesday evening pick-up, 4-6pm, OR Saturday morning pick-up, 10-12. (Saturday is limited availability. May require packing your own produce from a list in the farm shop.)

  • $425, paid pre-season

What is CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a way to encourage and support local food production and sustainable land management practices.

CSA members prepay for their food for the growing season. By making this commitment to the farm in advance, you help the farm's cash flow when things are tight with springtime investments in seeds, fertilizer and tools. Your membership also helps buffer some of the uncertainty of the season, as some crops inevitably perform better than others each year.

CSA can be a great tool to deepen your relationship with your plate, learning to eat with the seasons. If you enjoy cooking and trying new vegetables, it can be an exciting culinary adventure. Members rejoice in the bounties of the season alongside with the farmer.

Is your produce chemical free?

Yes, our produce is free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. We only use supplies that are approved under organic certification.

What do you grow?

We grow more than 50 types of vegetables & herbs. Availability changes over the course of the season. If it's a vegetable that grows in this climate, there is a good chance we grow it! CSA members can expect 4-6 different vegetables each week. Some of our specialties include lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, garlic, potatoes, and peppers.

*We do NOT regularly grow cabbage, cauliflower, corn, or fruits, though we do strive to offer them from other local growers on occasion.*

More Details & Membership Options

Our Spring CSA is $200 (approximately a $220 value). Our Summer/Fall CSA is $425 (approximately a $460 value). Shares generally include ~5-6 types of vegetables and a fresh herb of your choosing. We prioritize CSA first when we have a limited supply of a highly in demand product, such as sugar snap peas, lettuce or the season's first tomatoes. On weeks in which the produce options are a little thinner, or simply to mix it up, we feature another item from our partnered local producers. For example, in addition to your produce share, CSA members may be instructed to pick out a jam or bread of their choosing from the shop. 

When and where do members pick up?

Spring members must be able to commit to picking up Wednesdays between 4 and 6 PM.

Summer/Fall sharers may have the option at sign-up between Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings between 10 and noon.

We understand that occasionally, something comes up, and we have refrigeration space for a couple shares if that happens, but your share will be at its freshest if you can pick up during the designated window. 

Pickup location is in our barn, next to our Farm Shop. 

What about vacations?

We understand that summer is a busy time. Each member is allowed one planned skip if they choose. They must notify us at least 2 days in advance of pickup. Their skipped share can be redeemed post-season, the week of November 6th.
