"My 7 year-old daughter is begging me to join your summer CSA again...I think that speaks volumes". - 2018 CSA Member
We offer spring, summer and fall vegetable shares with optional weekly portions of eggs, goat cheese, pork sausage, and pick-your-own flowers at an additional cost. Members buy their share(s) in the early spring, supporting the farm with much-needed early-season income, and then receive weekly distributions of veggies—usually worth 20% more than the original payment—from our seasonal bounty during a specified time period. Our CSA members are one of the pillars that hold our farm up and we aim to give them the best quality and diversity that we can grow.
Our spring share (8 weeks) started in April and ended Thursday June 13th. It was one size ($25/wk) and a pre-picked basket, due to our limited growing capabilities during the North Country “spring.”
This season, our summer and fall shares will be available in two sizes: a “full” share, perfect for a family or a vegetable-loving couple, and a “small” share, great for 1-2 people depending on diet. Summer and fall share members who pick up at the farm will also be able to choose most of their veggies (both amounts and type)! We hope this will get you exactly the veggies you are excited about each week, though we will always challenge you to try something new. What does this look like?
Here’s an example of a late summer share, when we’re swimming in tomatoes and lettuce mix. All the crops we are harvesting that week will be laid out on tables. Based on your share size you will pick a certain number of items. You may pick the same item multiple times, just once, or never—unless it’s one of the one or two mandatory items that week.
"Meadowstone Farm CSA baskets have been awesome, primarily because of the quality of the food - big flavor and deep colors speak for the food value!" - 2018 CSA Member
Pickup day for all three shares will be Thursdays from 3-7pm at the farm.
Pickups of a boxed share (full or small) will be available Wednesdays both in Lancaster (at the Root Seller 12-6) and Gorham (at Libby’s/SaAlt Pub). If you cannot pick up on that day, we most likely cannot accommodate you, but please contact us to check!
While we aim for members to receive 20% more value than their initial payment (along with a weekly newsletter, recipes, and additional goodies), farming is not always predictable and your share may be limited in size if there is a drastic weather event, bug infestation, etc—though this has never come to pass in previous seasons.
