Silverbrook Farm is excited to offer a Community Supported Agriculture program during Summer and Fall of 2018.
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, fruits, jams and farm fresh eggs but also marmalades, mustards and local cheeses. A Full-share is $30/week and a Half-share is $15/week. You can purchase your CSA in our online store. If you are curious about what to expect in your Summer CSA, please view our past CSA guides.
Questions about CSA (Community Sustainable Agriculture)
When and where can I pick my Summer CSA?
We will have a local Summer CSA in Dartmouth, MA with the pickup at our farm stand (592 Chase Road, Dartmouth, MA). The Dartmouth Summer CSA will run for 14 weeks on Wednesdays from June 20th to September 26th (there will not be a pick-up on Wed., July 4th)
We also offer the CSA to our Summer market customers in Falmouth, MA on Thursdays and Provincetown, MA on Saturdays.
We will also be hosting Corporate CSA programs throughout Boston and Cape Cod. The Corporate CSA will run for 15 weeks on Tuesdays from June 19th - September 25th. Please Contact us if your office is interested in participating.
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. You can view examples of our Weekly CSA Guides HERE!
