By selling membership in advance of the growing season, CSA reduces the burden of up-front costs for the farmer. Your membership fees provide us with money to purchase seed and equipment before the season starts, and we appreciate your commitment. In order to extend the availability of purchasing a CSA share to more people, we offer a sliding fee scale. This means that you can pick your price. Our target prices are listed – this is what we need to run – but if you feel like you cannot make the price, feel free to pay the minimum. Conversely, if you have a little extra to give, we would appreciate it if you could give a little more, effectively subsidizing those who can’t afford the upfront cost.
