Farm Membership – Open for 2019-2020!
Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct relationship between the community and the farmer, which involves an upfront commitment of the consumer to purchase goods and a commitment of the farmer to grow for that community. This upfront payment allows for a portion of the farm’s start-of-season operating costs to be shared by the CSA (i.e. seeds, compost, farm crew salaries, etc.). In return, members receive a discounted Farm Card and the complete flexibility to shop for whatever they want anytime during the 33 week harvest season.
CSA farm members will receive a Farm Card, loaded at the start of the season with your CSA funds plus an additional 10%-12% spending credit for your commitment. You can use the farm card at our weekly farmers market in St. Petersburg, the Saturday Morning Market, from October 2019 through May 2020 (a total of 33 market dates). Card is valid through the growing season only, and will not carry into the next season.
The Farm Card can be used on all goods at our farmer’s market – including all of our organic vegetables, flowers, and swag (bags, etc). The Farm Card membership costs $500 for the full season, and is loaded with $550 (including the spending credit bonus). You may choose to reload your card in increments of $100 at any time during the season, with a 10% bonus credit applied ($110 will be loaded).
We enroll a limited number of new Farm Members for the season. Enrollment for Farm Membership begins mid-April and ends September 1st, or when we sell out. No new members are accepted following that date, until the next season. Market season begins Saturday, October 5th, at which point you will pick up your farm card and begin (or anytime thereafter)!
By purchasing a Farm Card you agree to the terms.
