Share Prices

Two Seasonal Options

FULL SEASON. Receive vegetables for the full 29 weeks, starting in mid May and ending in early December. With this option you may cancel up to three weeks during that time, and receive up to three weeks of (long-storing) vegetables on week 30.

20-WEEK SEASON For the same weekly price you get to choose which twenty weeks you want food delivered during the 29-week season.

Sliding Scale Pricing

Our share pricing strategy is based on an ideal that we hope promotes CSA participation by people of various income levels while at the same time, paying our farmers a living wage.

Vegetable farming is very low paying work because most commercial vegetables are priced below the cost of production. This makes it nearly impossible to make a living growing vegetables. We do not want to price our shares so that only the wealthy can afford them, and we want to make enough money to support ourselves. That is why we created the sliding scale.

We price our shares using a range of prices for each type of share. The lowest price for each share is designed to cover the farm’s bare bones budget for the year. All payments above the minimum provide additional money to increase farmer wages and to assist low income community members in joining the CSA. You choose the price that best fits your budget. Sliding scale pricing applies to vegetable shares only.

The sliding scale payment method was first introduced at Seven Springs in 2008. Since then, members have joined the CSA paying at a level they could afford. We believe the sliding scale method offers a greater degree of fairness, balance and opportunity so that a larger variety of individuals can join our CSA . All monies collected over the minimum on the sliding scale range have gone toward full or partial CSA scholarships to families who otherwise would not have been able to join and to boosting the wages of the farmers.

We encourage members to pay in full upon sign-up if they are able. Pre-payment provides the working capital needed to purchase seed, supplies, etc., and pay farmers’ salaries for work that begins in late winter. It also saves money on billing and administrative costs. All members who pay in full receive a $15 price reduction on the cost of their share.

Neighbors Help Neighbors

Through the generosity of CSA members, we have established a fund that allows us to give deep discounts to families on limited incomes who want to participate, but cannot pay the full price. If you would like to apply for a discount on your share, please check the Neighbors help neighbors box when you sign up.
