How much food is in my share?

The Sizes:

Choose from 4 share sizes! Pick the one most perfect for your family, from X-large to Small.  The Large Share is suited for a family of approximately 2 parents and 2-3 children or 2 vegetable loving adults. A Small Share is suited for a small family, couple or a vegetable loving adult. With this year’s addition of the Medium and X-large share, there is is just that much more selection.

The Points:

The CSA functions on a point system. All the vegetables have a point value for a specific amount. As a member you are free to determine which vegetables you take and the amounts you want determined by your share size!  The amount of points available (and therefore the amount of veggies available) every week usually remains the same all season long.

Share SizeOptions Investment
Small $460
Medium $600
Large $800
X-Large $940
Flour $80

Georgetown pick-up includes a $10 travel fee in addition to these prices.
