At Warner Farm, we offer a 20-week CSA from mid-June through October. There are 3 vegetable share sizes to choose from, and we deliver to 5 pick-up locations on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the greater Boston area as well as to the Millstone Farm Market in Sunderland, MA. We grow most of the produce for the CSA ourselves as well as partner with other local farms to supplement our shares and to offer fresh, local fruit, egg, mushroom, flower, and bread share add-ons.
Our shares are pre-boxed for quick and convenient pick-up during weekly 3-hour pick-up windows, making a Warner Farm CSA the easiest way to get healthy, farm fresh produce for your family – and better yet, at a reasonable price!
As of the 2020 season, our CSA features FULLY-CUSTOMIZABLE SHARES! As a CSA member with our farm you have the ability to edit and adjust your own shares, letting you receive everything you love and nothing you don’t! In addition to customizing shares, members also have the option to add in extras beyond their regular shares, buy bulk produce for canning and processing, and even reschedule share deliveries around vacations or other summer plans. For more information about our CSA program keep reading!
We offer three different vegetable share options to help you choose the right share for you!
A small share is prefect for a single person or a couple who cooks occasionally or may eat out often. (about 4-6 “items” per share)
A medium share is ideal for a vegetable loving couple or small family. (about 6-9 “items” per share)
A large share supplies the most variety and quantity and is ideal for an omnivorous family of 4 or 5 (or a vegetarian family of 2-3), or a smaller family that cooks frequently and/or would like to freeze or jar extra produce to enjoy through-out the year. (about 9-12 “items” per share)
Our add-ons are a great way to get more of the local, farm fresh produce you want for your family. You may purchase multiple add-ons, or choose to receive just add-ons without a vegetable share! Please note that add-ons, like fruit shares, are not customizable.
Our fruit share is a great way to get fresh seasonal fruit all season long. To increase the quantity of fruit in your share, you can purchase multiple shares. Members with multiple fruit shares will receive the same offering as single fruit shares, but with added quantity. Members may receive strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black raspberries, nectarines, peaches, grapes, apples, and pears over the course of the season.
An egg share will receive a dozen eggs each week. Members can purchase multiple egg shares to receive more eggs each week. We partner with Chip-In Farm in Bedford, MA to bring you these delicious, super-fresh eggs from happy, free-running, cage free hens, raised on their family farm. Chip-In Farm eggs are collected, washed, and graded daily, all by hand and made available for sale the day after being laid. These eggs are truly “farm fresh eggs” and are a great compliment to your fresh vegetables.
A mushroom share features organic, locally grown mushrooms. You’ll get to experience the health benefits of fungi and expand your culinary options! Varieties will include Shiitake, Oyster, and Lions Mane mushrooms, offered on a rotating basis, with the potential for some wild foraged treats if the pickings are good. We are delighted to partner with Mycoterra Farm in South Deerfield, MA to provide this add-on choice.
Our flower share members will receive a bouquet of handpicked, beautifully arranged flowers for 16 weeks of our CSA season. (Please note this is the ONLY add-on that is not for the full 20 weeks.) We partner with Old Friends Farm in Amherst, MA to bring these beautiful, organic, freshly cut flowers to you.
All bread share members will receive fresh bread each week, baked that very morning with love, from Rise Above Bakery, located in Greenfield, MA. Varieties will be offered on a rotating schedule, with offerings including bagels, croissants, and 5 unique loaves of bread: Pain de Campagne, Sprouted Rye, Miche, Black Currant Levain, and Leinsamenbrot. Rise Above’s bread is baked with 100% local grain milled in Hadley and Holyoke, MA.
*NEW!* Pork share members will receive a variety of heritage breed, pastured pork provided by Sage Farm in Bernardston, MA. Offerings include porkchops, pork shoulder/butt, bacon, ribs, and 8 unique types of sausage. All products come frozen and vacuum sealed. Sage Farm pigs are grazed using intensive rotational methods, ensuring maximum foraging and resulting in incredibly flavorful pork.
