Fresh veggies delivered to your neighborhood!
The traditional way to connect CSA customers to their fresh produce is through weekly deliveries. Every Saturday morning, for a total of 18 weeks, we bring produce boxes to Meadville, Titusville, and West Millcreek. We meet you at these drop-off sites, or you pick up your box at a time convenient to you that day. Each box contains a variety of produce and our weekly newsletter, which gives an update on the farm and includes recipe ideas to help you use your produce.
CSA SHare Options
Full Share - $360
Our full share is designed for a family of 2 to 4 people who cook at home regularly and eat vegetables frequently throughout the week. Each week, will bring approximately $20 worth of produce, made up from 6 to 10 different vegetables and herbs.
Half Share - $200
Our half share is designed for 1 to 2 people who regularly cook at home and eat vegetables frequently throughout the week. You will receive 5 to 8 different vegetables and herbs each week, with an average value of around $10 a week.
Do you have a family larger than four people? Or maybe you cook almost every meal at home and use lots of veggies? Or maybe your family only cooks meals at home on the weekends or a few times each week? If you're not sure what share size is best for your situation, let us know, and we will be happy to help.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up?
You can sign up by providing at least a $75 down payment to reserve your share. The remaining balance on your account will be due by June 1. We appreciate those members who pay for their share in full, upfront, as it helps us cover early season expenses.
What payment types do you accept?
If you would like to pay for your share using your credit or debit card you can sign up right on our website, using our online store. Click here to be taken to the online store.
In the meantime, we are happy to accommodate those who wish to pay by check. Click here to read our instructions for paying by check.
When are CSA boxes ready?
All of our CSA boxes go out for delivery on Saturday morning. The exception to this is Oil City. We deliver Oil City’s boxes on Friday.
What time will my box be at my pick-up site?
Delivery times are set at the beginning of the season when we have a better idea of how many shares we will have at each site. During the off-season we can only guess at a delivery time for your preferred site. If you'd like to know what that guess is, send us an email or give us a call and we can let you know.
Is there an exact time I need to be at my pick-up site?
At the beginning of the season, we set all of our pick-up location arrival times. Short of circumstances beyond our control (accidents, etc.), we will be at your pick-up site by that time. If you can't be there at that exact moment, that's fine. We stay at each site for about half an hour, waiting for our members. At that point, if we still have boxes that have not been picked up, we will leave them behind for members to pick-up later.
So I can pick up my box at any time on Saturday?
Not exactly. We leave each pick-up location after about 30 minutes. If you haven't come by then, we will leave your box for you to pick up later, but there are a few things to consider.
First, our pick-up locations are generally at people's homes and we need to be respectful of them. If you can't pick your box up by dark, your site host will get to keep your box.
Second, fresh-picked veggies are perishable. We go through a lot of work to make sure your box contains veggies at the peak of freshness. We harvest fast and then quickly get them out of the field and back to the pack shed, where we can remove any field heat. All that work can be undone by a few hours out in the sun (or inside a hot car). We cannot guarantee the freshness of any vegetables that are left at the drop-off site past the scheduled pick-up time.
What if I will be out-of-town on a pick-up day?
If you can't make your pick-up, there are a few options.
First, you could have a friend or family member pick up for you.
Second, we would be glad to donate your share to a local food pantry on your behalf.
Third, if you will just be gone over the weekend, we may be able to store your share in our walk-in cooler until you get back on Monday. If you don't mind making the trip out to the farm to pick up your share, this may be an option for you. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.
Finally, please let us know if you will be out of town. If we know ahead of time, we may be able to work something out, but we need to know in advance.
