Community Supported Agriculture

 

Become a member of Calvert’s Gift Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture buying program.

Calvert’s Gift Farm offers members 24 weeks of our own locally grown, certified organic produce for $600 ($550 if paid by February 15th).  Weekly shares consist of 8 items with a value of $25-$30.

 

The Details

We begin the third week of May and run through the end of October, when our produce is at its most abundant and the farm is at its peak production.  Members choose to pick up their share boxes at the farm on either Tuesdays or Thursdays.  In addition to the weekly share of vegetables, surplus produce from the week’s harvest is frequently offered to our members.  A “trade box” is available each week so that members can exchange less appreciated produce for their particular favorites.  Of course, recipes and cooking tips are included with each week’s share boxes. 

Strawberries, blackberries and flowers are available as pick your own opportunities, and are free to our shareholders.  Bulk items will be offered as harvest permits at an additional cost.  Our members will also be eligible to participate in our off season buying program to extend their access to our fresh produce.

Egg Share

In addition to the fruit and vegetable CSA, fresh, cage free brown eggs can be purchased through the farm.  We have a small flock of laying hens, however they cannot meet the demand of the CSA.  The egg come from the Warns Farm in Freeland Maryland.  Eggs are available for $96 for the season ($4 per dozen for 24 weeks) and are picked up with your share box.  ½ shares (every other week) are also available.
