Pick Your Own at the Farm

Did you know CSA shares come with free Pick Your Own in our fields? Picking includes peas, strawberries, beans, herbs, flowers, cherry tomatoes and more. When you get a CSA farm share, you get the full value of the share at the pickups of pre-harvested produce. Anything you gather in the PYO fields is a bonus. We'd love to see you on the farm this summer!

Our Pick Your Own fields are open only to CSA Members and Stand & Market Members after June. Picking is free for CSA members and pay-per-item for Stand & Market Members.
