About Our CSA
Community Supported Agriculture is a membership agreement between farmers and their customers. Most entail a year-long commitment for a total amount to be paid for a weekly amount of vegetables to be picked up by the customer. Ours is a nominal fee paid at the first visit which allows the customer to pick any available fruit throughout the season, when the crop is ripe and in sufficient quantity.
Due to a series of late spring overnight freezing temperatures during the blossoming period, we have a small crop of peaches this year and will have to limit CSA members to a maximum of one 8 qt. basket per week. Some weeks we will not have any PYO at all, but CSA members will have priority for picked fruit.
We may have to limit to “by appointment” if there is a rush of customers which some farms have reported, particularly in small areas like the berries or cherries. Please check our fb page or call before you make a trip to visit. Due to the pandemic, social distancing and hygienic requirements will be enforced.
Large groups will not be allowed this summer. Children must be supervised and stay with parents.
Masks are to be worn during the entire time of your visit while you may be near other persons.
Please stay at least six feet away from anyone not in your party.
There is a handwashing station set up, please use it before and after you pick. No tasting fruit due to state health department requirements. We never use dangerous chemicals on fruit ready to be picked so you do not have to wash your peaches. Peeling off the skin is always recommended.
Customers may pick only where directed, and in the interest of providing for as many of you as possible, for a limited time.
No pets allowed in the orchard. Bitsy and the other Collies are upset about this, too.
Please see payment details in the Farm stand section of this website. Cash or check only; sorry, we do not accept credit cards. We will be selling by the full level 8 qt. basket rather than weighing your purchase this year. If you want less, buy by one layer or two. “Rounding up” contributions will go to the Washington-Warren Food Bank, which is seeing a greatly increased need this year.
