How Our CSA Works
White Barn Farm will offer 100 shares of the harvest for 2013. Shares cost $625 . Full payment at once provides the farm with the working capital it needs when it needs it most. We offer a payment plan if you are not able to pay at once. We do not have a work requirement for our CSA members. There are no pick-your-own crops in the share at this time.
The CSA begins in late May/early June and runs until late October, for a total of 22 weeks. We aim to provide a value of $20-35 with each share. We will pack your share into a box that can be quickly and conveniently toted away. This should be enough for a family of four or a couple of vegetarians. Do take note, however, that part of the CSA model is sharing the abundances and setbacks with the farmers. This means accepting that there may be more to offer at the height of the summer than in the first week of June and that some years are better for growing tomatoes than others. As growers, we will do our best to grow enough diversity to offset any perceived losses.
We have three pick-up days: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You choose which day to sign up for and then pick up at our roadside stand 2 pm - 7 pm on your day. The stand is right across the street from the farm, on 1A (South St.) between Wrentham center and Wampum corner.
