2024 Community Supported Agriculture
2024 Membership - Final Season
Future Plans Starting 2025
We are grateful for the tremendous support we have received throughout the twenty-one seasons of our Community Supported Agriculture Program. At Creme de la Crop, we are undergoing significant changes, and we take immense pride in being able to provide you with produce through this share program for one last time this season. This season will be exceptional and a final tribute to the diverse range of produce we've harvested for you.
In 2025 we will be changing to u-pick organically grown fruit. The community will be invited to harvest organically grown berries and fruit from our orchard and future vineyard.
What is C.S.A.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system in which consumers purchase food directly from the farmers who produce it - bringing together community members, farmers, and agricultural land to create a more intimate and healthy relationship between people and the source of their food. You’ll know where your food came from and eat in harmony with the seasons, enjoying a balanced and varied diet of healthy natural foods.
Produce Share Plans
Creme de la Crop currently offers two distribution options. You can select to pick up every week throughout the program or decide to participate twice monthly. A share typically satisfies the needs of one vegetarian or two people with a mixed diet. Your weekly assortment will contain farm-fresh produce, including heirlooms and unique varieties known for their flavor and beauty. Throughout the season, we offer different selections from a few items we harvested so that you can pick your favorites. The newsletter is emailed to you describing the week’s harvest, current happenings at the farm, and kitchen-tested recipes, eliminating the need for menu planning.
Healthy Soil Means Healthy Food
Our produce is grown without chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides, or herbicides. We employ natural farming techniques that improve soil health and plant structure. Our plants produce more, are naturally resistant to common pests, and are more tolerant to adverse weather conditions. The result is healthier food that tastes better and is free of toxins. This farming method is sustainable, and it protects our water supply from contamination.
From the Fields:Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Green Beans, Greens (Salad & Cooking), Herbs, Leeks, Melons, Parsnips, Peppers (Sweet & Chili), Potatoes, Rutabaga, Squash (Summer & Winter), Tomatillos, Tomatoes, Turnips...
Pick-up Options (Wednesday or Friday)
Pick-up is from 2:00-6:00 PM. If you cannot make it to the farm during that time frame, we will keep your share in our walk-in cooler for you to pick up during our current store hours. We ask that you email us in advance if you know you can’t make it on your selected day, and we harvest your share fresh for you.
I want to be a shareholder in the Créme de la Crop Programs. I agree to follow the guidelines and understand circumstances (acts of nature) that the farmworkers and family farms have no control over. We will do our best to provide all the anticipated crops. Your payment is your commitment to this season's share plan, and we do not give refunds.
Payment Deposit Option:
- The first installment is paid through the website.
- A second payment is due in 30 days, and you will receive a reminder notification through email. A payment link will be in the email.
- The final payment will be due 60 days after the deposit was made. A fifteen-dollar installment charge will be applied to your statement. If you were a shareholder in the past, the installment fee will be waived.
