The Whole CSA Package

  • 24 weeks of our fresh flavorful vegetables Spring 12 weeks (April-June) & Fall 12 weeks (September-November). This includes a weekly share with 2-3 choices plus access to the swap table
  • Certified Naturally Grown Produce: Just think organic practices without all of the paperworkIMG_0028
  • A wide variety of veggies each week-– You’ll get a healthy mix of staples and artisanal veggies in each box. We do that on purpose because we know that you would never choose watermelon radishes on your own. But we’ve seen countless IMG_0272people who have expanded their tastes because we “forced them” to try someone new. And since we’re about changing the way people eat, this feature is a non-negotiable for us.
  • You’re supporting a local business — You can know that 100% of your dollars are going right to our family to support us. I use your payment to support our family and farm expenses all year long.
  • Add-Ons: Eggs and amazing Local Honey
  • Access to the private Chickadee Farms Facebook group — A community of  members all eating the same food each week, and supporting each other in the process.
  • Training for how to eat our food — We believe this is a necessary piece of the puzzle in helping people learn how to eat our food. You’ll have access to tips and tricks on how to use up your share.
  • Access to farm events and workshops. Because we know this helps you build a relationship with us. And you HAVE to come out and meet the chickens and ducks!
  • Piece of mind that you are supporting your farmer, supporting a clean environment, putting your values into action and eating quality local seasonal produce!
