Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

When Joining a CSA, you, the member, are making a commitment with that farm. Your contribution helps the farm build and prosper in many ways that sometimes go unseen. The weekly mouthwatering taste we are able to provide to you through our produce is a direct reflection of your commitment and dedication to us. At Bridgewater Farm, our top priority is to provide you with high quality nutritious organically grown food delivered from our family farm to your family table. 
 
We participate in local Farmers Markets and also provide produce for local restaurants/wholesalers. Don't worry, at Bridgewater Farm our CSA members come first! We have a strong passion in not only making sure you get your "share basket" on a weekly or bi-weekly basis but also that you get the freshest and juiciest veggies around!
 
Full shares usually include many different types of fruits and vegetables, enough for a household of 2-5 people. Most CSAs also offer half shares for individuals or smaller households, 1-3 people. In addition to your share, you may purchase additional fruit, vegetables, eggs, and meat per availability.
 
Plants are started from seed as early as February. We begin planting outside in late March, early April. By mid to early May, depending on the weather, we will begin to harvest and the CSA will begin!

There are two CSA box options:

Traditional Box - A pre-made box with a wide variety of all fruits and vegetables that is often exceeding that of the weekly CSA dollar amount paid. 

Market Box -  You will be allowed to select your own produce from our market stand each week. You will have the prorated value of $27.50 (full share) and $16.25 (half share) to spend each week.
     *Restrictions may apply depending on the availability of certain goods. 

CSA Work Share - If you would like to earn a free box of produce each week, this is for you!

* To earn a half CSA share, we require you work 2 hours a week.
* To earn a full CSAshare, we require you work 3 hours a week.

We are open to various forms of work but most needed is work on the farm. For example, working 6 hours in one day would cover 2 CSA full share boxes or 10 hours in one day to cover 5 CSA half share boxes.
