Our 2019 Farm Share program (formerly known as Community Supported Agriculture or CSA) is now open. It’s a great way to access locally-grown, fresh produce throughout the growing season. And the best part is that you don’t have to do any of the work – we do it all for you.
Each week, beginning in May and ending in October, we’ll fill your Farm Share bag with a variety of fresh-picked, seasonal USDA Certified Organic vegetables, fruit and herbs harvested from our garden. We’ll then transport it to your choice of one of our four convenient pick-up locations. A share will feed a small family, or a couple of veggie-loving adults.
Choose what’s in your bag ahead of time or let us pick for you. You can also choose between a full share or a half share. And don’t forget your eggs!
Last season’s harvest included tomatoes, cabbages, cucumbers, beans, eggplants, peppers, lettuce mix, arugula, spinach, green onions, beets, potatoes, carrots, turnips, leeks, onions, sweet potatoes, squash, radishes, micro greens, kale, chard, fennel, garlic, an assortment of fresh herbs (parsley, basil cilantro, dill, oregano, thyme) and more.
You’ll also receive a weekly email from our garden manager, Candace, with information about what’s in your bag, delicious recipes, what’s happening on the farm and other useful information.
Options and Pricing
Are you a planner? Then the Member Choice option is for you! Each Friday you’ll receive an email with the number of items you can choose for your basket for the following week. Simply place your order of what you’d like and we’ll do the rest.

Are you adventurous? Select the Farmer Choice option and let us choose for you. All you do is show up each week and pick up your produce! But don’t worry. If you happen to get something you’d rather not have, you can easily change out an unwanted item for something from our Swap Box.
Full Share $550 for 20 weeks
Half Share $325 for 10 weeks
Enjoy a dozen eggs each week from our flock of happy, healthy hens! You can purchase as many shares of eggs as you wish (pending availability of shares). You do not need to be a CSA member to join the Egg Share. Additionally, the Egg Share runs continuously all year, and you are welcome to maintain your shares even once the CSA wraps up. Pick up is with the CSA at any of our pickup sites during CSA season and at the Farm Store at White Violet Center during the off-season (December through mid-May).
Full Share $70 for 20 weeks
Half Share $35 for 10 weeks

- White Violet Center gardens are USDA Certified Organic. Our veggies proudly sport the green & white organic label!
- We can’t predict what weather, pests, or disease will come our way, so keep in mind that these offerings may fluctuate. Our crop list is split into two groups: foundation crops — items we have in larger quantities for longer harvest periods, usually 4 weeks or more, and season-specific crops — items with a more limited harvest window and usually in lower quantities. These crops may make an appearance for 1-3 weeks at a time.
Reasons to support our Community Supported Agriculture program:
- Locally-grown foods are fresher and taste better
- Organic growing methods used in our garden are in the spirit of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods
- Establish a vital link between your food, the people who grew it and the land that nourished it
