There are 3 produce share sizes to choose from, add-on shares like eggs and milk, and several pickup locations in the Athens area. We harvest produce for your share during the CSA season and let you know on a weekly basis what items you can anticipate receiving. 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 for families and individuals to embrace seasonal eating
and to try new things this year!
Produce Share Sizes
The FULL SHARE is $33/week and typically includes 8 to 10 produce items. It is generally enough produce for a family or for a couple that cooks most of their meals from scratch. Big families who cook almost every meal from scratch may want to purchase an additional share.
The VALUE SHARE is $22/week and usually includes 5 to 7 produce items. The Value Share is best for singles who cook a lot and couples. It could be appropriate for small families who don't cook from scratch every night of the week.
The new MINI SHARE is $15.50/week and typically includes 3 to 5 produce items. It's a good option for singles, light vegetable eaters, or those who just want to dabble in the CSA lifestyle.
In addition to your produce share, you can also choose to add some of the following local items to your share for the season. Any add-on options you select will arrive at your pickup location with the rest of your produce share, and you will receive these items as scheduled throughout the CSA season (i.e. weekly, bi-weekly, etc.). If you do not opt for the seasonal share of these items, you will also have the opportunity to add these items on to your share when you customize your box each week; however, these items are of limited supply, and only those that have purchased seasonal shares will be guaranteed these products.
