How do I sign up?
While MOM’s volunteers our stores as pick-up spots, we have no hand in running the actual farming operations. The sign-up periods, seasons, pricing, and size of box shares are all determined by the farms themselves. Each store decides on the farm(s) they want to support. We make a space for pick-ups and keep the box shares safe. To sign up, contact your local MOM’s location.
We are a volunteer CSA pickup location. Learn more about how it works below.
What is a CSA?
Community-supported agriculture is a system that connects the producer and consumers within the food system more closely by allowing the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of a certain farm or group of farms. A farm will sell “memberships” or “shares” of the harvest. Members pay for their shares upfront, and the farm is able to buy seeds and supplies to support their farm for the season.
Why does MOM's host CSA pickup locations?
Small, local organic farms are doing a service to the environment. The more successful they are, the more the organic industry grows and the cleaner the local environment is.
Not all local farms are large enough to sell their produce at MOM’s, so instead, we allow them to offer their CSA shares for pickup at MOM’s stores.
We do not make any profit off of this system. Our goal is to support local organic farms and grow the organic industry.
How does it work?
The farm sells a share for $150 for the season. They will then provide a box of produce from their harvest every week or every other week to everyone who bought a share. The box usually contains a variety of seasonal fruits and or vegetables (it’s usually a surprise). Share holders come to MOM’s to pick up their box.
