Our  Fall/Winter CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm Shares in Richmond, VA and Washington, DC start the 1st week of October and run 24 weeks (6 months) through the last week of March. There is a two week break for the winter holidays.

Our CSA program is a versatile, flexible program that includes locally produced food options, payment plans, and open enrollment/pro-rated join-anytime membership. Bi-weekly/weekly frequency vary with location site and interest. Prices/member fee stays the same for the Fall/Winter 14/15 season. We offer installment payments of 3 payments for Produce, Meat and Dairy, and 4 payments for Full Share. The first payment is made upon joining, with subsequent payments every 30 days until your share is paid. There is a seasonal member fee that is charged separately from online food payment.
