From Our Customers

"Fox Briar’s CSA is the epitome of eating the seasons, and tasting the difference of a local, mindfully tended terroir. Each week is a treasure trove, with her fresh spring radishes, earthy summer beets, and sweet autumn carrots especially inspiring joy."

“This CSA delivery single-handedly pulled me out of a COVID despair spiral. Receiving beautiful, unusual, delicious vegetables each week has reinvigorated my cooking and helped me appreciate this extended time at home. It’s been a bright spot in my week, and a way to tap into creativity and inspiration.”

How does the CSA work?

Basically, you invest a bit of your money and in return we provide you with a weekly selection of our best produce.  Every week we curate a selection of vegetables for you based on what is best out in the field at the time, and giving you a chance to try a bit of everything.  We grow a wide variety of beautiful vegetables, and this is a great opportunity to develop a sense of truly seasonal eating. Each bag contains 6-9 items, and equates to a little more than $30 worth of produce a week.

In 2021 we will be partnering with the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy in Easton, MD to provide a safe pick up site for your shares.  

Pick ups will be Tuesday afternoons from 4-5:30, May 18 - September 7, with no pick up on August 3.  We take that week in August to get caught up on field work and make sure we have our plantings in for the fall.  

The cost is $500 for the season, with options to pay the total upfront or in installments.

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  When you join a CSA you are making a commitment to supporting a smaller scale, but local and resilient food system.  You invest upfront and in return receive a weekly supply of the freshest vegetables possible, harvested literally hours before you pick them up. CSA support is essential for many small farms because it gives us the capital and stability we need to start our season.

Is a CSA for me?

A CSA is a commitment not just to our farm, but to yourself and a lifestyle of preparing fresh, seasonal food almost every day.  This doesn't suit everyone's lifestyle.  If, however, you love to cook and experiment and learn some new things about your food, a CSA is a wonderful addition to your kitchen.

Is your produce chemical free?

YES!  We don't use any synthetic chemicals at the farm.  Feeding the soil food web is at the core of our growing practices, so we only use organic compost and methods.  We are always striving to bring the farm and the ecosystem into balance on our path toward abundance and quality.

What happens if I can't pick up a share?

If for some reason you can't make it to the pick up one week, this can be a great opportunity to share with your friends or neighbors!  Just send us a heads up.

 

Payment Options

The cost of the CSA share is $500 for the season.  Whether you choose to pay in full or in installments, you are making a commitment to the full season, just like we are!  We accept payment online through PayPal or Venmo, or are happy to take a check.  Just let us know your preference when you sign up.

Installments

You can choose to pay over time for your CSA share in monthly installments: An initial $100 payment confirms your spot in the CSA.  Then you take care of the remainder in four $100 payments during the season.

Full Season

When you pay the full $500 amount upfront you are helping us to start the season off right.  By January we are already starting to make big purchases, ordering seeds and plants, new equipment and supplies, and mountains of compost.  Your support early in the year is the foundation of a successful farming season.
