2019 CSA Options

What is CSA? 

Community Supported Agriculture is a direct connection between YOU and OUR FARM.

CSA members make a commitment to the farm by purchasing a “share” of the harvest in advance of the growing season.

This upfront commitment from you provides our farm with the capital we need early in the year – to buy seeds and supplies, and get our fields planted in the spring. In return, members receive a  “share” of the farm’s harvest — fresh, in-season, high quality, organic vegetables grown and harvested right here on our farm.

Design Your Own Share

Weekly Vegetable Share

csa shareStout Oak Farm offers Certified Organic Weekly Vegetable CSA shares for pick up at our Farm Store.  The CSA runs for 18 weeks, starting first week of June. Pick up days are Tuesdays from 2:00 – 6:00pm OR Saturdays from 9:00am – 12:00. Members pick up on the same day each week.

Each week, our popular pre-boxed CSA shares contain 8 to 10 different crops, reflecting what’s in season on the farm. Our CSA is known for its top quality, very clean, organic vegetables!  We grow over 40 different crops, including many heirloom varieties. The shares are designed for one household, and typically feed 2 – 4 people.  The cost is $555 for the 18-week season. See examples and photos of past CSA shares on our Farm Blog.

  • Weekly share boxed just for you:  A weekly supply of fresh, high quality, organic, in-season vegetables grown here at our farm! 8 to 10 items per week ($33+ average value per week)
  • CSA Swap Box: Swap any item in your share with any vegetable in the CSA Swap Box.
  • Weekly email with recipes, food storage tips, and menu planning ideas.
  • Face-to-face time with your farmers when you pick up your share each week.
  • Invitations to farm events including Spring Open House, Spring Plant Sale, CSA Potlucks, Farm Tours, Farm Happy Hours, Tomato Tasting, and Fall Harvest Weekend.
