What can I get with my CSA?
We carry a wide variety of locally grown, seasonal vegetables, greens, herbs, mushrooms, fruits, berries and even fresh flowers… all available for purchase with your CSA share.
$300 or $600 seems like a lot of produce. Will I really need that much?
It might seem like a lot at first glance, but if you purchase some produce every week from mid June through mid October (approximately 18 weeks), then it works out to about $16 or $33 per week. Not that much, when you consider all of the great healthy produce you get for you and your family over the season, while supporting local farms.
What if I don't use all of my share?
When you purchase a Smithy CSA share at the start of the growing season, you have eight months, May-December, to use it in full. To help you keep track, we will email you a current balance after Labor Day and again in November, to give you every opportunity to enjoy the full value of your share. Although we cannot issue refunds after December 31st, please rest assured that the value of any remaining balance will be donated to FOOD RESCUE U.S., an organization that picks up usable excess food from markets and restaurants and delivers to those in need.
How do I use my CSA share?
We store your CSA share card at The Smithy for your convenience. When you've got your produce selections and are ready to check out, just come up to the register and let the staff know you're a CSA Member and give them your name. We'll deduct the amount of your produce purchase from your share card and keep it handy for you the next time you come in. We can also check the balance on the card for you at any time, just ask!
Can I use my CSA share for other items at The Smithy?
The Smithy CSA is for produce only. This includes all vegetables, greens, herbs, fruits, mushrooms, edible plants and cut flowers available at The Smithy. It does not include milk, eggs, meat or any other items in the store at this time.
