Get fresh produce from university farm through its CSA; sign up now

CSAThe Farm Food Program at the Case Western Reserve University Farm is accepting shareholders for the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. In a CSA, community members purchase shares in a farm and, in turn, receive farm-fresh produce.

There are 20 shares remaining for the season, which begins June 18.

For 2014, the farm will offer a single, CSA share size valued at $30/week for 14 or 20 weeks, running either mid-June to mid-September, or continuing on through the end of October. For the 14-week session, the cost with bags is $440. For the 20-week session, the cost with bags is $590 (includes one week of free produce).

Bag pickups will be on Wednesdays from noon to 3 p.m. at the Biomedical Research Building Lobby, or Fridays from noon to 3 p.m. at the university farm in the main barn.

Unclaimed bags will be forfeited for the week, but friends can pick up for you if needed.

To sign up, call the university farm office at 216.368.0274. You can select your pickup location at that time.
