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.
The 2017 CSA Sign Up Form will be available here March 2017!
Wright-Locke Farm offers three types of shares in 2017:
Regular Share: 20 weeks on-farm vegetable pick-ups on Thursdays from 2pm-6pm at Wright-Locke Farm (78 Ridge St) June 1st – October 12th at a cost of $575.
Alternate Share: 10 alternating weeks (A weeks or B weeks) on-farm vegetable pick-ups on Thursdays from 2pm-6pm at Wright-Locke Farm (78 Ridge St) over a 20-week period (June 1st – October 12th) at a cost of $325 for the 10 pick-up weeks.
Flower Share: 16 weeks of on-farm pickups of seasonal bouquets consisting of 20 stems on Thursdays from 2pm-6pm OR Tuesdays from 2pm-6pm at Wright-Locke Farm (78 Ridge St) June 27th – October 12th at a cost of $160.
PLEASE NOTE: Spots are limited! We have a total of 20 regular shares, 20 alternate week shares, 20 Thursday flower shares, and 10 Tuesday flower shares.
There are many variables that will ensure our farm’s success next year. While the vegetables that grew this past 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 2017. I hope you will join us as Wright-Locke Farm begins its newest iteration of growing fresh, local produce.
