Our CSA Program
At Hemingway Farms, we believe vibrant farms are a benefit to the whole community and that locally grown foods are essential for a healthy and safe food supply.
Purchasing CSA Shares
Purchasing a CSA share helps our farm with seasonal start-up costs such as labor, insurance, seed, greenhouse supplies, heating oil, etc. In return, shareholders receive a modest discount, the freshest and tastiest produce and locally grown plants. We offer two kinds of Community Supported (CSA) farm shares:
Our Farmstand CSA is the most flexible option and allows you to purchase a share in late winter/early spring at a modest discount and then use the full value of the share throughout our season at your convenience. The Farmstand share may be used to purchase any items we grow or sell at our farm (i.e. plants, vegetables, berries, baked goods, wreaths), and is set up much like a store credit.
The Farmstand share may be used anytime during the 2023 season. We will be open every day from April 13th until November 1st and then again from November 11th-26th.
we will have wreaths and kissing balls for sale the week of Thanksgiving.
Here are some examples of items you can purchase with your Farmstand share:
Our own vegetables from asparagus to zucchini
strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, apples,
hanging baskets and patio planters grown on our farm
annuals, vegetable plants, herbs, perennials, shrubs
jams, pickles, honey and maple syrup

“Fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Home made goods and local artisan foods. As a Senior citizen I appreciate the Farmstand CSA at 2 prices, allowing me to buy at my convenience and amounts at reasonable prices. The staff always have smiles on their faces and I love the way they ask how I prepare foods when they have never tried something. I have even dropped off a recipe or two when requested. (it would be nice for them to have name tags) I am proud to have this Farmstand as a part of my Community” -Gail F.
We also offer a more traditional Produce CSA, either a 12-week share (June 15 until August 31), an 18-week share (June 15 until October 12), or a 9-week bi-weekly share, which will begin on June 22 and end on October 12, with pick-up every other Thursday.
Here are some examples of items you can purchase with your Produce share:
The produce share will consist of an assortment of vegetables grown on our farm, harvested that morning, and will vary each week, depending upon what is in season. Strawberries, blueberries and/or raspberries will also be included when they are in season. The longer 18-week share will include more fall root vegetables and squash, items that we are normally just beginning to harvest when the 12-week share ends.
The weekly value of the produce share will be approximately $25.00. It is ideal for people who like a wide-variety of vegetables, enjoy what is locally in season, and who like to try new things. The produce share will be picked and packed by our farm crew; shareholders are responsible for picking up the delicious items each Thursday from 11 am to 6 pm at our farmstand.
