Mustard Seed Microfarm CSA 2020

Mustard Seed Microfarm was founded on the basic principle that it is the right of all people to have an adequate, safe, nutritious, affordable and sustainable food supply.  As part of that principle, Mustard Seed Microfarm will be offering a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for the 2020 season.  CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  Subscribers are able to pay in advance for a share of the farms product.  It's good for the subscriber because it gives them access to fresh, healthy food and gives them the chance to know where their food is coming from.  It's good for the farmer because it helps them plan for The CSA will run for 16 weeks from June to September.  Each Saturday, subscribers will be able to come to our booth at the Southbridge Farmers Market  and will be able to choose what they would like in their share.  There are two subscription options available.  The half share for $250 (8 weeks) and the full share for $500 (16 weeks).  Payments can be made in full when signing up or can be spread out in 4 monthly payments. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How big are the shares?

Each share will contain at least 4 different products.  Subscribers will be able to choose from what is available each week to get exactly what they want.

What if I miss a week or can't pick it up on Saturday?

If you are not able to pick up your weekly share on the designated day, please give us at least a 24 hours notice and we can make other arrangements for pick up.  Everyone forgets stuff at times, so if you don't give 24 hours notice and don't pick up your share, the first time is excused.  If it happens again, you will forfeit the weeks share.
