COVID-19 Update:

We are still taking orders for our Spring/Summer CSA, which is set to start the week of April 13. As we approach the beginning of the season, we will assess how we might need to adjust our pickup options and other practices. 

In the meantime, we are partnering with the Athens Farmers Market to offer weekly a la carte ordering through our Online  Farm Stand. Click here for more info.

How it works

We offer weekly produce boxes from local family farms... customized to your preferences! Choose a share that works for YOU. 

 

There are 3 produce share sizes to choose from, add-on shares like eggs and milk, and several pickup locations in the Athens area. You can choose what you like from our produce availability and we harvest it fresh... usually the day before you receive it! You'll also be able to add other locally produced goodies to your order every week and we'll bring it all to your pickup.

 

A CSA produce share is a wonderful way to embrace seasonal eating

and to try new things this year... all while supporting local family farms and producers!

Harvie

We use a web-based platform called Harvie to meet our members' needs through a customizable CSA program. With Harvie, each week's share will be based on your preferences, and you'll get an email the week before telling you what to expect. At that point you can makes swaps, add extra produce, and order products from our favorite local artisans.

Some other benefits of Harvie:

Weekly Payment Plans

​Tired of remembering to make payments or can’t pay in full? Choose the payment plan at check out and we'll break your total up into smaller payments... 25% down when you sign up, 25% the first week, and the remaining 50% will be divided evenly and charged to your card on file weekly. 

UPDATE: As of 3/17/20, anyone who signs up for a payment plan will be enrolled in an alternative "Pay as you go" payment plan. In this plan, your down payment will be equal to one week's delivery. After the initial payment, you will be charged on a per delivery basis once the initial down payment has been applied. In most cases, that means that there will be no charge the first week of the season unless you add items to your order, and following that your card on file will be charged weekly for that week's delivery.

Vacation Holds
Vacation planned? Need to change your dropsite? No problem. You can easily reschedule your box or change pick-pick up locations to accommodate your busy life, so you don't have to worry about missing out on those veggies you paid for.

Recipe Suggestions
