WHEN CAN I BUY A CSA SHARE?

Ela CSA fruit shares are available for purchase in the spring from March through mid June. You can tell if a share is open for purchase by clicking to add a share to your cart on the website. If it works, the share is available!

WHY BUY A CSA SHARE?

We often sell out of prized fruit at our farmers 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 that our fruit will be delicious and that our members receive the full retail value of their share.

Weekly Fruit Share Predicted Schedules 

Early Season Fruit Share Ft. Collins CSA – $75  – not offered this year because the cherry crop got frozen
Approximately 20 pounds of organic fruit over 3 weeks

July 11 – Sweet cherries
July 18 – Sweet cherries and peaches
July 25 – Sweet cherries and peaches

includes our riskiest crop, cherries, which bloom in early spring. If the temperature drops too low while fruit trees are in bloom, the crop is reduced or lost…so Early season share sign up is tentative until we know the cherries’ fate. If we have a cherry crop, we open Early season share sign ups for a short time between June 2nd-June 15th.  All current CSA members will receive a personal notification via email if we have an Early season share.
