With our Summer CSA, you’ll pick up a weekly haul of the best and brightest seasonal vegetables from June through October (example shares below by month). The biweekly option provides the same excellent array as the weekly share, but pickups are every-other week. Items such as beans, peas and cherry tomatoes will be available as optional u-pick items, only available for harvest during Tuesday pickup at the farm (3:30-6 PM).

Early-bird price is $500 until January 1; $525 until March 21 and $550 through May 21 ($300; $315; $330 for biweekly). Please read our Member Agreement below before signing up, and contact us before you select the working-share option!

Member Agreement

We are grateful for both the new and continued support we have received as farmers at Green Wagon. Community-Supported Agriculture is a transaction, but it is also a promise made with the understanding of our relationship as producers and consumers.

Concerning your share: each share you receive is a culmination of months of planning, seeding, planting, irrigating, weeding, harvesting, washing, and packing, and we strive to provide you with the finest, freshest produce. We also strive to treat you, our customers, with the highest respect, and we hope that you will return us the favor.

While we expect a plentiful harvest, we cannot guarantee the amount and varieties of produce members will receive. While we plan to continue planting a large variety of crops, there can be extreme variation in crop success from year to year.

If our service does not meet your expectations, please do not hesitate to call or email us (heather@greenwagonfarm.com). A phone call is the the quickest way to reach us (add us to your contacts: 616.283.2842).

As a part of our community, you share in our successes as well as our failures, and for this, we are immensely grateful. In exchange for your loyal support, we promise we will do everything to meet your expectations. If you are not completely satisfied, please let us know what we can do to improve our service. You have the option to withdraw your membership at any point in the year, but you will not receive a reimbursement for missed or dropped weeks.

As farmers, we are well aware that this world is wildly variable and beyond our control. We will try our best to extend grace and generosity as much as possible, but the following will keep us all well-fed and in good-humor:

Please make your payments on time. A half or full payment should be made upfront to hold your place. The other half of your payment will be due on June 1, the week before the CSA begins.

Please pick up your share on time. We promise your produce will be fresh at the time of pick-up. There is no guarantee it will stay fresh after this time.

Please check off your name on the sign-in sheet at time of pick-up. This is important for our records and signifies that our weekly agreement has been fulfilled.

Please arrange an early or late pick-up, by phone or email, ONE WEEK PRIOR to regular pick-up date. Pickup times available are Tuesdays from 3:30-6 PM at the farm and Wednesdays from 4-6:30 PM at Fulton St. Farmers Market. Please arrange for picking up at the alternate location no more than three times per season. Biweekly members cannot switch from week to week, only from day-to-day within the same week.

Friend or family members are always welcome to pick up a share in your place. Please be sure to let them know the name of our farm, our pick-up policies, and the name of the member to check-off upon sign-in—this will reduce confusion all around.

If you have a special, unexpected circumstances that prevent you from retrieving your share, contact us. We will review your request and determine if we can make an accommodation.

This contract commits members and farmers for a full harvest season, in its unpredictable beauty.

Please contact us with any questions.
