Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

CUSTOMIZE YOUR CSA BOX

Oak Spring Farms is partnering with Harvie to customize CSA weekly shares based on your preferences. By rating the different vegetables available this season with a ranking of 0-5, we can customize weekly vegetable boxes based on your preferences.

  • Each week you will be emailed a list of the vegetables chosen for your upcoming CSA box.
  • Further customize your CSA share each week by swapping out items on the list online.
  • Extra items can be also added online to your CSA share each week.
  • Pay in full or use a payment plan (25% at signup, 25% first delivery week, 50% distributed into payments each delivery week).

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MEMBER OF A CSA

A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a local farming operation where the farmer and the consumers share the risks and benefits of food production. As a member of the Oak Spring Farm CSA…

~ You’ll be supporting a local farmer without the middleman which means making our community stronger.

~ Your fruits and vegetables couldn’t be any fresher which means they’re more delicious and more nutritious.  We literally just pulled them out of the earth.

~ Its inexpensive.  Vegetables from the farm are nutrient dense and last longer so they’ll make it to the end of the week without going bad before you can use them.

~ Your personal likes and dislikes (and any food allergies) are taken into consideration because with the Harvie CSA platform your share is fully customizable!

~We’ll send recipes each week to help you discover the delicious flavors of that week’s selections AND you will gain membership to our exclusive FB group where we discuss weekly recipes, talk storage tips and other great local items to pair with your weekly veg. There will be photo contests and all kinds of ‘just for members’ events.

~On vacation or traveling?  Gift your week’s share to a friend, double up on your share the week before or the week after or donate it to the food bank in your name.
