WHEN CAN I BUY A CSA SHARE?

Ela CSA fruit shares are available to purchase in the spring from March through mid June. You can tell if a share is open if you are able to add a share to your cart on our 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.
