Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
The harvest season begins mid-June and runs
for 18 consecutive weeks.
Our on-farm CSA shares give you the full farm
experience. You’ll have interaction with the
farmers who grow your produce as well as other
CSA staff. You will be able to choose Mondays or
Thursdays as your pickup day; pickup takes place
from 4 to 7 p.m.
Advantage of the on-farm shares:
- A farmer’s market-style setup at pick-up
gives you choices among your produce
options. As an example, you may choose a
certain number of pounds from three
different kinds of potatoes – yellow, red or
Adirondack blue. You may take all of one or
some of each. You will usually have a choice
among your salad and cooking greens. Some
choices are based on the quantities of the
crops that are ready for harvest. If we have
a limited amount of broccoli and cantaloupe
available for distribution that week, for
example, you may have a choice of one or the
- The on-farm shares include u-pick bonus
vegetables, herbs and flowers at no extra
cost. See the
page for details.
- You get a greater quantity of produce
for the dollar because there’s less labor
involved on our end. This is an advantage if
you will be able to consume, can or freeze
that amount of produce.
We offer two on-farm CSA memberships:
- The Full Vegetable, Flower &
Herb Share ($635 for 18 weeks) is
geared toward families or vegetarian
couples. The share includes eight to 10 items early
in the season, and up to 15 items at the
peak of the season.
- The Biweekly Vegetable, Flower &
Herb Share ($435 for 9 weeks) is
the same format as our full share above, but
with pickup every other week. We make every
effort for biweekly members to get some of
every crop received by full members. There
may be a few exceptions in terms of crops
with a short harvest.

The Wickham Farms Grab & Go CSA share, our

customer feedback. During the first two years of
our CSA program, a significant number of CSA
members told us that they would prefer a smaller share, either because they had busy schedules or had a

The Grab & Go CSA share was designed for
people who are limited in time to prepare their
vegetables, or for singles/couples who will not
