Levesque's Organic Farm's C.S.A. Program
A quick update for our CSA customers. The application window to join our CSA program will begin March 1st and will run until June 15th. If you have questions you can check our website under the CSA page or send a message on our facebook page. As for our Farmshare customers, we have not yet received our vouchers from the government for the sign ups. We expect to receive them sometimes towards the end of March, we will contact everyone on our list once we get our paperwork!
Question: What is a C.S.A. Program?
Answer: C.S.A. stands for Community Supported Agriculture, it is a program run by the individual farm. It allows customers to put money down before the season starts towards a credit (referred to as a share) that can be used throughout the season.
Question: When can I use my C.S.A.?
Answer: Some farms limit customers to a pre-packed box or bag of produce that needs to be picked up each week within a certain time frame. However we allow our C.S.A. customers to come in during any time that we are open*.
Question: What can I buy with my C.S.A.?
Answer: Every farm is different, our C.S.A. customers will be able to use their credit towards anything in our farm stand. Available produce changes throughout the season, so its up to you on when to spend your share!
Question: How much does it cost to become a part of the C.S.A. Program?
Answer: Our minimum C.S.A. share is one hundred dollars ($100.00) and increases in fifty dollar ($50.00) increments, to as much as you would like to put down. As a thank you for your support, anyone who purchases a C.S.A. share will receive a free 10% share increase. So your $100 share will get you $110 worth of produce from the farm stand.
Question: When and how do I sign up for a C.S.A. Share?
Answer: Sign ups for our 2022 season will start March 1. To sign up for a C.S.A. share, you can either contact us via email at Levorgfarm@gmail.com or by phone at (207) 524-5535.
