Thank you for choosing to participate in the Wright-Locke CSA as a sustainable way to bring fresh, local, organic vegetables into your household. Your participation is a vital component to making this farm a truly successful Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) endeavor. CSA is a partnership of mutual commitment between a farm and a community of supporters which provides a direct link between the production and consumption of local food.
Supporters cover an integral part of a farm’s yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season’s harvest. CSA members make a commitment to support the farm throughout the season, and assume the costs, risks and bounty of growing food along with the farmer or grower. Members payments help pay for seeds, water, equipment maintenance, labor, etc. In return, the farm provides, to the best of its ability, a healthy supply of seasonal fresh produce throughout the growing season. Becoming a member creates a responsible relationship between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown, and those who grow it.
There are many variables that will ensure our farm’s success this year. While the vegetables that grew last season thrived, there is always a chance that the shares may not meet your expectations in the future. However, we are confident in our farm operation and that our efforts will lead to another great harvest in 2020. I hope you will join us as we grow fresh, local produce for our community.
Adrienne Altstatt, Farm Manager
Our CSA Shares will open up March 2020.
Regular Share: 20 weeks on-farm vegetable pick-ups on Thursdays from 3pm-7pm at Wright-Locke Farm (78 Ridge St) June 4th – October 15th at a cost of $600.
Alternate Share: 10 alternating weeks (A weeks or B weeks) on-farm vegetable pick-ups on Thursdays from 3pm-7pm at Wright-Locke Farm (78 Ridge St) over a 20-week period (June 4th – October 15th) at a cost of $340 for the 10 pick-up weeks.
Flower Share: 12 weeks of on-farm pickups of seasonal bouquets consisting of approximately 20 stems; pickups are on Tuesdays, July 14th – September 29th from 3-7pm or Thursdays, July 16th – October 1st from 3-7pm at a cost of $180 per share.
Farm Stand & Market CSA Share (Carrot Card): Want to the support the farm, but you’ve got some picky eaters in your household? Our Carrot Card might be a good option for you. This is a flexible, convenient option that allows you to shop for what you need, when you want it, but still seasonally! Instead of getting a box every week (or every other week), you can shop at either of our Farmers Markets (Lexington-Tuesdays from 2-6:30 or Winchester-Saturdays from 9:30-1:30) or at our Farm Stand. It’s good for anything at our Farm Stand except alcohol. The card is only good for this calendar year and costs $340 (the equivalent of an “Alternate Share”).
*Our shares are limited and sell out fast, but you can get a share from our friends at Picadilly Farm in Winchester, NH! They have a share pickup in the area on Thursdays.
**If you are a SNAP recipient and are interested in a CSA Share with us, please email Adrienne at email@example.com.
