A Single share is estimated to be plenty of produce for a couple or individual who eats a moderate amount of veggies, or a family who eats a small amount of veggies. It is half the amount of a Family share.
CSA Frequently Asked Questions
What does it cost?
Shares for 2019 are $920 for Family Shares, $550 for Single Shares. For Work Share prices and details please read the Work Share Info page.
Payment may be broken up into installments, with at least one payment due the first week of distribution (June 1). A minimum of $250 is required for a down payment if you opt for installments. We do not send invoices; members are responsible for their own payment. Currently we accept checks and cash with a commitment form. Checks can be mailed, while we request that cash be brought to the farm and paid in person.

How does it work?
Our CSA provides members with 25 weekly distributions of freshly harvested produce, beginning the first week of June and ending around Thanksgiving. The share includes a wide variety of vegetables, with some fruits, plus access to our pick-your-own garden for flowers, herbs, and cherry tomatoes, all of which is grown on-site at Asbury Village Farm.
CSA members come to the farm on their chosen pick-up day (Tuesday PM/Wednesday AM, or Friday PM/Saturday AM), sign in, and bag up their share from the bins of veggies in our distribution center. Some weeks, there is a free recipe sheet provided, with tips on how to store and cook that week's share. After bagging their share, members take a short walk around the barn into the field to gather their pick-your-own items, when in season.
