Please see the list of vegetables typically included in our Shares at the end of this post.
Before Signing up for 2016 CSA Share:
* Non-working Members enjoy the convenience of picking up their Share of vegetables each week at our Farm outside of Bath or at a pick-up site in Corning.
* Working Members appreciate cultivating their gardening skills in a beautiful environment with others who appreciate healthy living. The fresh air, exercise and community of kind hearts bring people back year after year to help plant, grow, weed, and harvest delicious veggies together.
* Working members must indicate when they'd like to work - either Monday evenings from 5-7pm or Thursday mornings from 11am-1pm (beginning third week of June and going through late October). We ask Working Members to commit to one of those time slots for the whole growing season. If you are out of town and miss your work time, you can simply forfeit your vegetables for that week. Or you can ask someone else to work for you and have them pick-up your veggies.
2. Pay for your Share ~ We have a limited amount of Shares; so, it's best to reserve one as soon as possible. Please pay 50% of your Share cost when you sign up and 50% by June 20. You could also pay in full for your Share at any time. Shares are non-refundable.
You can make your deposit and payments in one of three ways:
b. or send a check made out to the PeaceWeavers, at 8125 Crouse Road, Bath, NY 14810. Please indicate the Working or NonWorking Share in memo line.
c. or call us at 607-776-4060 to pay over the phone with a credit card (VISA, MC, AMX, DSC)
Belonging to our CSA is the easiest & least expensive way to get the freshest & most nutritious variety of organic vegetables during the growing season.
What is a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)? CSA's are an alternative way of connecting farmers and consumers that insures fresher, better quality, healthier food for the consumer and a guaranteed market for the farmer. Individuals, couples and families sign up in the winter to receive a weekly share of the vegetable harvest during the growing season.
Overall, belonging to a CSA is not simply about getting great vegetables. It's about being part of a movement that is boosting local economies as well as reclaiming healthy food, unspoiled land, air and water for ourselves and generations to come.
Please be in touch with us if you have any questions - 607-776-4060. We look forward to growing and harvesting with you this year!
~Best wishes for your wellness from all of us on the Farm
