Free Choice & Market Style
Since 2015, our gardens in Pipers Glen have provided fresh, hand-tended vegetables to our wonderful customers at the Mabou Farmers’ Market. This spring, the realities of COVID-19 have made the opening of the farmers’ market uncertain. And this has presented us with an exciting new opportunity: our inaugural CSA!
About the Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) Model
One of the things that we have always loved the most about selling at the farmers’ market is the direct connection we have to our customers - and our new CSA will allow us to continue building those relationships.
CSA is an alternative model for food access and distribution where the customer is directly linked to the farm. The customer (or “CSA member”) purchases “shares” in the harvest, paying at the beginning of the season and receiving a portion of the harvest over the course of the season; thus sharing in both the risk and bounty of food production.
Many CSAs are presented in the form of a weekly basket, selected and packed by the farmer, and made up of a selection of seasonal vegetables. Membership in our CSA looks a little bit different, as you’ll see below.

Membership costs $300. For that investment, members receive a “farm tab” of $315 to spend with us as they like throughout our season.
