Our CSA program offers members

* 4 Share size options, either Standard or Premium (customizable)
* about 25 pickup locations
* Weekly or as needed Add-on items like eggs, shrimp, meats, etc
We include ONLY produce grown on our farm in your share but we offer the opportunity for you to purchase additional produce, fruits, meats, cheeses, prepared foods, shrimp, eggs, honey, gifts, etc that we carry in our Stono Market & Tomato Shed Cafe with your delivery. Our on-line store for CSA Members is extensive.
Pre-packed Standard- the farm crew picks and packs your share the day of delivery and your share will contain what is harvested that day. Simply put - a share of the day's harvest.
Pre-packed Premium- you order from the selected harvest list each week and the farm crew includes only those items. Each customizable share is limited to the value of your share, is labeled with your name and a copy of your order, and is delivered in Yellow bags. Premium Shares cost an additional $6/week
Delivered means, you choose a pickup location at sign-up that has an assigned day of the week and time of day that your share will be available. This schedule remains consistent throughout the season.
There is a $3.50 fee per week for pre-packed and delivered shares. This fee covers the driver, auto, fuel, and insurance costs associated with delivering but the convenience is well worth the minimal fee.
All members may choose Farm or Stono Market as their pick-up location. These shares are not pre-packed and there is no delivery fee.
Winter - January through March - 11 to 13 weeks
Spring- April through early July - 13 to 14 weeks
Fall- October through late December - 11 to 13 weeks
51 weeks for the cost of 49, giving yearly members the option to get veggies all 51 weeks or miss a week or 2 throughout the year without giving up something you've paid for
You may sign-up for any Seasonal Subscription several months before the season begins (preferred) or during the season. All costs for seasonal subscriptions are pro-rated. Yearly subscriptions begin the week of your 1st delivery and end one year later.
Payment plans are often available for pre-season sign ups and can be paid by e-check or Credit Card. Mid-season sign-ups must be paid in full before deliveries begin. Yearly Subscribers may make quarterly payments unless special arrangements are made in advance.
**CAREFULLY select your Yearly Subscription payment option at Sign Up. You may select to pay for all 51 deliveries at sign up or you may choose an Auto Payment every 13(quarterly) deliveries.
