Silverbrook Farm Summer CSA Sign-ups are OPEN.
We offer a Full Share which is portioned for the entire family and a Half Share which is best for couples or friends. The Full Share will not only contain sustainably locally grown vegetables and fruits, but also homemade jams and farm fresh free-range eggs. A Full-share is $30/week and a Half-share is $15/week. The Summer 2019 CSA program in Dartmouth and Boston MA will run on WEDNESDAYS for 15 weeks, June - September. There will be no CSA the week of July 4th. Exact dates TBD.
Questions about CSA (Community Sustainable Agriculture)
When and where can I pick my CSA?
CSA day is WEDNESDAY. Our local CSA in Dartmouth, MA will pickup at our farm stand (592 Chase Road, Dartmouth, MA) on Wednesdays. We also offer a Summer corporate CSA program in Boston, MA where you can get your share at your workplace! We are currently offering the Corporate CSA program at Bay Cove Human Services, Novartis, Vertex, Takeda, and VHB. Exact times TBD. If your office is interested in a corporate CSA pick-up location please send us an email.
What happens if I can’t pick up my CSA share?
Anyone can pick up your share, they just need to give your name. Best practice is to shoot us an email ahead of time letting us know who will be picking up your share that day.
A great deal of work and planning goes into preparing for pick up day, so we cannot let you pick up on a different day or time. You might also consider letting a charity pick up your share in your absence.
What happened to the Pick Your Own Share?
Even though we aren't offering a pre-sale option this year every share is a PICK YOUR OWN! You can swap items from what is available with the CSA driver at your pick up location or at the farmers' market that you pick up at.
May I get more than my share?
Yes you may. We usually have enough to sell you extra items. We will also have our own jams, jellies and honey for sale and occasionally may have some produce items that are not included in the share for sale.
May I split a share with someone?
Yes. However, for our record keeping purposes the share will only be listed under one persons name, so we ask that only one of you sign up, or we will think that we have sold 2 shares. We will not split the share for you. One person will have to pick up the share and you will have to split it between yourselves.
What can I expect in my CSA?
The contents of your CSA vary depending on what crops are prevalent and in season, the weather, crop yield, and many other factors. You can view examples of our Weekly CSA Guides HERE!
