We often sell out of prized fruit at our markets. Therefore a CSA membership is a great way to ensure your share of our fruit crop. Because ripening dates are dynamic, flexibility is required of our members. If we are short of one fruit, we will substitute the full retail value with another fruit or artisan fruit product. After all, taking the twists and turns and bumps in the road with your farmer is part of the agricultural adventure! We guarantee our fruit and that members receive the full retail value of their share.

While we have more acreage and diversity of peak season fruit, the early season fruit is more risky. Therefore, we divide our weekly share into two parts, the early season share and the peak season share. Members may purchase the peak season share and/or the canning share between March 1-June 15. We sell the early season shares from June 1-15 if the cherry crop makes it through frost season. We welcome your membership in one or all of the available shares: peak season, early season, and canning!

Our Golden weekly CSA share runs for 13 weeks with a break on Buffalo Bill Days on July 28th. The share suits a family of 2-5 people. The peak season share totals nearly 90 lbs of fruit over 10 weeks. If you miss a week, we are happy to make the fruit up to you in the event you go out of town. We strive to provide you the best tasting fruit you will eat all year! Join us!

Eat organic fruit for less than conventional prices with our Canning Share!

Our 120 lb. Canning Share is great for those who want to savor Colorado fruit season year round by processing fruit while it is in season. Members receive a 20 lb. box of our “imperfect” fruit every couple of weeks or so. Can it, freeze it, jam it, dry it….or just gobble it up at a bargain price. Though not cosmetically perfect, our seconds are just as delicious and are easy on your local organic food budget.

To become a CSA member, proceed to the CSA purchase page of our online store and choose Golden market as your pick up site. If you have further questions or would like to pay with a check, contact jeni@elafamilyfarms.com and request CSA information for Golden.
