CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) provides a great opportunity for you to establish a relationship with a local farmer by purchasing a subscription in advance and receiving a weekly bag of the best produce around during the spring, summer and fall. It’s about adding a real face and real lives to your daily meals. It’s about keeping your food dollars in your own community, county and state. It’s about money that multiplies through local stores, banks and schools.

When you become a CSA member, you are making a commitment to feeding yourself and your family better. You are making a commitment to paying a fair price for the labor of the farmers who feed you. Joining Pendleton’s Country Market CSA is about making a choice to live better, healthier and more sustainably.

We offer two types of Subscriptions:

Option 1.
Subscribers receive a bag each week of seasonal produce that is hand harvested and fresh. The bag will typically contain 6 -8 different items of a variety of vegetables, herbs, and sometimes small fruit, eggs, cheese or value added items. Bags will be picked up at the farm each Tuesday or Wednesday, or other designated day and location with at least 8 subscribers.

Option 2.
Subscribers receive a punch card that can be used at our farmstand or at the Saturday Lawrence Farmers Market. Each month’s card is good for the entire month — spend as little or as much as you’d like each week. This option allows you to stock up on seasonal items that you may want enough of to can or freeze, and it allows you to be gone for a week, and not have to find someone to pick up your share.
