2017 CSA is sold out!

The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a 20 week partnership between shareholders and the farm.  CSA members commit to a season of produce from the farm by purchasing a share before the harvest season begins.  Once the season begins in late May or early June, you'll receive a variety of the fresh vegetables and herbs harvested each week!  CSA members share the rewards of a great season - and the risks that can come with extreme weather and pests.

Ways to Connect to the farm and other CSA members!

Facebook CSA Group

Open to CSA members only, this group has been created to help foster member to member support for our CSA this season. Post your own recipes, cooking tips, kitchen experiences, favorite CSA meal pics, ask for help picking up your share if you won't be able to make the pickup window or other experiences involving your CSA!  Remember, there are 61 other families getting the same ingredients as you each week so when it comes to food, we all have a lot in common!

Pinterest Recipe Boards

Organized by vegetable, the farm's Pinterest page compiles a vast catalog of recipes to keep you inspired through the season.  Whether you're looking for basic dishes, elaborate show-stoppers, quick dinners, classic preparations or something in between, you're sure to find something useful in just a few clicks!

If you find a recipe you'd like to add, post it in the Facebook CSA group above or email it to me and I'll add it to the Pinterest boards.

Follow the farm on Instagram to get the latest pictures from the field and all of the veggies coming out of it.  You can also get a sneak peak at the contents of each week's CSA share a couple of hours before pickup.

FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM!


Newsletter

The weekly email newsletter is the best way to stay up to date on all of the farm's offerings through the year.  From weekly online ordering opportunities, pop-up farmstand times, highlights from the field along with plenty of beautiful pictures, the newsletter is a great place to start.

If you're in the CSA and not receiving the newsletter, please check your spam folders to make sure that they're not getting directed away from your inbox.

SIGN UP FOR THE NEWSLETTER!

 

Each week, the farm is aiming to get at least one CSA member to post an entry in the email newsletter!  The subject for this content can be anything relating to the CSA including recipes, food stories, methods of organizing a CSA share once you get it home, supporting pictures, how you hide the vegetables in meals so your kids don’t know they’re eating them and so on. If you’d like to participate, just email me (orangecirclefarm@gmail.com) your entry with (or without) photos and I’ll include it in the next newsletter.

How does pickup work?

Your vegetables will be pre-packaged each week in a plastic bin.  You will need to bring your own bags to transfer your vegetables into and leave the bin with the farm.  An exchange bin* will be available with a variety of vegetables so that you may trade an item in your bin that you may not be comfortable with for an item that you favor.  This method allows you to customize your share each week. 

Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate pickups outside of the hours stated above.  If you are unable to pick up your share for any given week, we encourage you to find someone else to pick it up for you.  If you know that no one is coming, please contact the farm at least 24 hours ahead of time so your share doesn't go to waste.

*exchange bin will not be available at the Friday pickup at Maine Meat

Splitting a share.

Splitting a share among two households is an option, but we ask that shareholders take the entire weekly share in one visit. Please do not come to pick up your share and take a "partial" or "half" share. Keep in mind that our shares are designed for one household, and the contents can't always be divided equally.  If you decide to share a share, we suggest that you either alternate pick-up weeks (the most popular option), come to pick up your share together, or split the share at home.  Email me if you'd like to split a share and I'll try to put you in contact with others that are also interested in sharing. orangecirclefarm@gmail.com
