WHEN CAN I BUY A CSA SHARE?

Ela CSA fruit shares are available for purchase in the spring from April  through mid-June or until the total available 300 shares are sold out. You can tell if a share is open for purchase by adding a share to your cart on the website. If it works, the share is available!

WHY BUY A CSA SHARE?

Farmers deal with a lot of unknowns. A great way to support local agriculture is by becoming a CSA member at Ela Family Farms so that we can rely on you to show up rain or shine to eat the fruit that is being harvested each week. We grow over 50 varieties of fruit that we pick at the peak of flavor, so your fruit will be as fresh as if you picked it yourself. 

Because ripening dates are dynamic, flexibility is required of our members. The contents of your fruit share will reflect the realities of our harvest, so the contents below may vary. After all, taking the twists and turns and bumps in the road with your farmer is part of the CSA commitment and adventure! In turn, we guarantee that our fruit will be delicious and that our members receive a portion of our harvest each week.
