THE 2023 CSA is now in progress. If you are interested in purchasing a share for the remainder of the season, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there is any availability.
CSA stands for “community-supported agriculture”. At Gibbet Hill Farm we grow the highest quality seasonal produce for the Webber Restaurant Group restaurants, and we are pleased to offer the community an opportunity to join us as CSA members. We focus on growing beautiful, high quality produce, that is nutrient-dense and “beyond organic” (free of all conventional and organic pesticides/herbicides).
CSA SHARE OPTIONS
Pick-ups at the Gibbet Hill Farm bull barn on Thursdays from 2pm-6pm
Full Season Share (20 weeks) $750 June 8th-October 19th, 2023
Extended Season Share (24 weeks) $850 June 8th-November 16th, 2023
Amounts available for each crop will be predetermined by our farmer. Some crops may be limited, and others abundant, depending on the week and the weather. There will also be weeks in which shareholders can round out their weekly share with an array of pick your own herbs.
A CSA is entering into a deal with the farmer that they will weather the storm of the season, this means if the farm thrives the share will thrive, if certain crops fail then the shareholders might feel that as well.
PLEASE SEE FAQs below!
WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE WHAT’S IN MY SHARE?
Becoming a CSA member is an adventure! We won’t know exactly what will be in your share until the day we are harvesting.
Try our “OFFER BOX”:
If there are items in your CSA share that you cannot eat or do not particularly like, we will provide an “Offer Box” at the CSA pick-up location. You can add that item to the box for other members who might be interested in additional portions of that product. Please remember to peruse the Offer Box for tasty veggies to take, whether you have added some or not.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM LATE OR MISS PICKING UP MY SHAREIf you know you can’t come to pick up, we would be grateful if you could notify us. If you are late picking up, the share will stay in the distribution area overnight. If the farm team arrives the next morning, and there are any shares that haven’t been picked up, we will donate the share to a family in need.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PYO HERBS?
Pick your own herbs include dill, basil, cilantro, and parsley.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO PICK UP?
Each week your share will be in a box with your name on it. We will provide two boxes per member, so we ask that each week you return your box from the previous week when you pick up for the current week. Some members prefer to bring a reusable bag and take the contents of their box that way. That is fine too!
CAN SOMEONE ELSE PICK UP MY SHARE?
Yes. We don’t need to know that someone else will pick up your share! If they are not familiar with our CSA, please ask them to read these Frequently Asked Questions.
EXAMPLES OF HARVESTS BY MONTH
*Please note, this is not a menu of what will be in your share, but a guideline as to what we are forecasting to harvest these months and what you might see in your share in the corresponding months. As a reminder, our crops are dependent on the weather and soil conditions and your share will reflect that each week.
