Learn About Our CSA

Grown naturally. Picked at peak flavor. Nutrient dense. Healthier, fresher, crisper, sweeter than your grocery store. Eat out of our vegetable box every week and build a healthy base for your diet with a wonderful diversity of fresh vegetables and herbs. 

Earthlands Farm offers local weekly organic produce boxes to consumers and restaurants throughout the Greater Boston Area. When you join, you will have a direct connection to our farm and you will eat some of the freshest, most nutritious vegetables and herbs available. Please note that we will sell out and shares are limited. You will be waitlisted if we reach capacity for what our farm can produce, so sign up early. 

What is a CSA?

“CSA” stands for “community supported agriculture” though this definition is quite broad. There are many ways to support community agriculture i.e. shopping at farmer’s markets, local farm stands or directly with nearby farmers. But because we all lead busy lives and have become accustomed to our food conveniently being organized and delivered to us, a “CSA” has become synonymous with a once-a-week box full of local produce that is in season and prepared by your local trusted farmer. CSA's have become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.

 

How big is an Earthlands Farm vegetable box?

 

A weekly box of Earthlands vegetables can feed a family of 3-5, depending on how much you cook at home and how vegetable centric your diet is. The kinds of vegetables you receive depends on the season. Here’s an example of what you might see in a weekly box: 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch broccoli, 1 bunch kale, 1/2 lb salad mix, 1 green cabbage, 1 lb potatoes, 1 bunch beets, 1/2 pint gourmet mushrooms, and 1 bunch green onions. For the produce in this week’s box, see the list on our weekly recipes section and check our weekly newsletter.

The Earthlands team chooses what goes into the boxes from a wide variety of produce grown on the farm. You will get your favorite vegetables as well as new things to try. Every week our newsletter features a recipe using the produce in your box. For a chart of our seasonal produce, go to our Crop Timeline.

Cancellation Policy

 

We encourage you to stick with your CSA for the season and have fun integrating the variety of new food into your meals. If you have too much food, we recommend you try out some of our canning, freezing and preserving recipes here, and to also consider sharing your CSA costs with other families, roommates, or work colleagues. If you need to leave us before the season is done, you may request a refund for the value of your remaining share. For any week you want to skip, are on vacation for or cannot show up for pick up, you can donate your box to our Angel Box program to get your box of healthy food straight to a local family experiencing food insecurity.  

High quality, nutritious and delicious food is our passion, and your satisfaction is our priority. If you have any concerns or questions about your purchase at anytime please email us at earthlandsfarm@gmail.com
