We are Wake County's first and only certified organic produce farm, starting our 15th year operating a CSA and we are now accepting new members for our 2014 season. We offer a 60 different fruits, herbs and vegetables, and a weekly option for free range beef from a neighboring farm. Members pick-up their shares weekly at one of seven drop site locations. On Mondays in Raleigh at the Unitarian Church, Thursdays in Cary at the St. Cyril Catholic Church, and at the farm on Tuesdays and Saturdays members choose what they want each week from a farmers market setting and load their own box within the guidelines set by the farm. We also offer a more traditional CSA option of a pre-packed box delivered to 3 other locations in Raleigh for more convenient neighborhood pick-ups. Members there will receive the same wide variety of produce each week chosen by the farm to insure a alternating selection. All locations will receive an average $22/week of produce for 19 weeks. The yearly subscription price is $475 for a Regular Share or $435 for a Working Share. A working share member receives the same amount of food in exchange for 6 hours work on the farm sometime during the season. The subscrition cost can be split into three payments with just a $175 deposit to get started. Call (919 618-5601) or email us at info@hilltopfarms.org to recieve the 2014 membership form or for more information.

The Summer season begins on April 19th and runs for 19 weeks up to August 30th, 2014. We take off for Memorial Day Weekend and July 4th week. We will also offer a 12 week Fall CSA starting Sept 27th through Dec. 13th at an additional cost.

Options for a missed dropsite are for members to pick up on Wednesdays at the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Markets where we sell or at the farm on Tuesdays or Saturdays. All CSA members can opt to pick up their weekly share at the farm or the farmers market on a given week with advance notice.

Wilkerson Farms of Willow Springs provides free-range beef for our CSA members. It is grass-fed, anti-biotic and growth hormone free and finished on grain. Members can buy from Wilkerson any week of the season by placing an order through us to be delivered to their dropsite.

Please see our website at www.hilltopfarms.org for a complete description of how our CSA program works or email us at info@hilltopfarms.org for the 2014 membership form. We can also send you our harvest schedule that shows what we are growing this year.
