CSA Produce Share

Community Supported Agriculture – CSA

Pear Tree Hill Farm Produce Shares

First off, what is a CSA?

A CSA is a collaboration between the farmer and the community through which an individual financially commits to purchasing produce ahead of the growing season. Buying a PTHF Produce Share enters members into a partnership with us, the farmers, to help further our farm’s mission to grow high quality vegetables without the use of chemicals. This partnership enhances the stewardship of our land and environment (so thanks)!

The Nitty Gritty – The Share

Our produce share season lasts 20 weeks: from May 21, 2019 to October 8, 2019. Share members will receive vegetables once a week. Each share will contain 5 or more different vegetables available at the time. An email will be sent to share members the Sunday before distribution day, listing available produce. Each share member replies with choices from the list as to what is wanted in that week’s share. This way you are in control of your share’s content and amounts!

The Distribution Discussion

Produce Shares will be distributed in three locations (other locations may be added):

  • Tuesdays – Pulaski Marketplace (4-7PM), Train Depot 20 S Washington Ave, Pulaski, VA 24301
  • TBD – Blacksburg, VA
  • Pickup at the farm is always available. Just call/text ahead so we can corral the dogs!

Produce Shares can be picked up by another person should you be away. Just shoot us an email (peartreehillfarm@icloud.com) and let us know 48 hours before your pick-up day that you’ll be gone and someone else is picking up.

Getting Down to the Dirt – The Cost

We offer multiple payment options: pay for the full 20 weeks (and receive a discount of 15+%), pay weekly, or pay by the month. Here’s the breakdown:

  • A weekly farm share is $20. Pay at the market for the following week.  For example, at the May 14th opening Pulaski market, you would pay $20 to buy a May 21st share.  On May 21, you would pickup your share at the Pulaski market and pay for the next week (May 28th) or be done.
  • The entire 20 week season is $350 (a 15+% discount). Paid-in-full members also receive first choice of limited crops (e.g. asparagus) and two holiday bonus distributions (Thanksgiving and Christmas).
