Payment & Deposits

The whole purpose of a CSA is to get $$ to farmers in these lean Winter months, therefore the bigger a deposit you put down now, the better it is for our farmers. In order to encourage people to pay in full, we offer reduced admin fee to those who pay in full at sign-up. It makes life easier for the farmers and the volunteer organizers. However, we also offer several types of  extended payment plans so that the CSA is open to all families despite income.

  • $30 – Early Bird – Payment in Full at sign up
  • $35 – Regular – 2 payments; Deposit at sign up + Pay in full by June 30.
  • $40 – 4 Payments – Deposit in May, June, July & Aug. Balance due by Aug 31
  • $45 – 5 payments – Deposit in May, June, July, Aug, & Sept. Balance due by Sept 31

Please note, there will be a $5 late fee for every late payment. There will also be a $30 fee for bouncing checks.
