Become a “shareholder” of Apple Street Farm. Take home the very best of Apple Street Farm’s heirloom vegetables, small fruits, herbs and flowers or enjoy a poultry share with Apple Street Farm's free-range chickens.

The Produce CSA includes a share of the farm’s harvest each week for 20 weeks from June through October, sized for a small family, as well as access to pick-your-own fields during those same months. Share pick up is on Thursdays from 2pm to 6pm in the barn at Apple Street Farm. Though we are not certified organic, we follow the organic standards and welcome any questions about our growing practices. We aim to provide both volume and variety in our vegetable share, which can include herbs, root vegetables, salad greens, cooking greens, tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, onions and other alliums, peas and beans, flowers, herbs, etc.

Registration is now OPEN for the 2014 Produce CSA. The rate is $600 for the season. Please complete the form here and submit payment by April 15, 2014 to confirm your share.

The Poultry CSA includes a pasture-raised, heritage-breed roasting chicken each week (or every other week for half-shares) for 20 weeks from June through October. The chickens are available for pick up on Wednesdays from 2pm to 6pm in the cottage at Apple Street Farm, and remain available in the cooler through Friday, at which time we place them in the freezer. Birds are bagged and labelled with the shareholder’s name for easy pick up. Since we choose to raise a slower-growing, and therefore much more flavorful, breed of chicken the weights of our birds are usually between 3 and 5 lbs. They live and grow on pasture, are moved to fresh grass daily, and fed organic grain.

Registration for the 2014 Poultry CSA is now OPEN. The rate is $550 for full shares, $275 for half shares. Please complete the form here and submit payment by April 15, 2014 to confirm your share.
