2015 CSA Enrollment is Closed.

Please inquire about our 2016 Program in December 2015!

Our CSA provides you with a means of purchasing fresh food from your friendly farm family at Miller Plant Farm. Unfortunately, the economics of todays modern food system have evolved into quality-last models involving large "factory" style farms employing many poor practices such as forced ripening and shipping produce large distances to your family's table.

When purchasing produce locally, you can rest assured that your produce is being grown using acceptable techniques you are accustomed to, and being harvested at the optimum time of taste and nutritional value, by people you know and trust.

By making an effort to purchase food locally, you support local agriculture which preserves open space in your community, keeps local family farms viable, and keeps spending power in our local economy.

How it Works

An explanation of how our CSA program works

A CSA is unique in that you as the consumer choose to invest, or share in the farm experience. We offer three options with some additional add-on options in which to choose from. Find details regarding the options below. After selecting the plans that best suits you and your family, please print the registration form and fill out all fields and sign. Include a check to cover the cost of the option(s) and mail to the address given on the registration form. Once we receive payment, you are then enrolled in our CSA!

We will supply you with a re-usable bag with our logo at the time of the first pickup. You are given one bag with the purchase of a CSA option which we encourage you to use throughout the duration of the program for pickups. Pickups will occur on Wednesdays of each week throughout the range of dates for the option that you are enrolled in. Pickup can take place from 10a.m. - 6p.m. All CSA members will receive a share of produce harvested and packed as close to pickup as possible. The weekly shares will be pre-determined by Miller Plant Farm but will be diverisfied week to week to encourage members to sample a wide range of our fresh produce. We strongly encourage members to pickup produce during the specified pickup time. If you can not do so, we will gladly donate your week's share to a local needy family or organization. If you are on vacation, have a friend or family member pick it up to enjoy. If you can not make it on Wednesday one particular week we can arrange for a pickup on Thursday a.m, but you must contact us letting us know ahead of time and it will be the same share prepared the day before. At noon on Thursdays all unclaimed shares will be donated to needy individuals.
