Community Supported Agriculture at Land’s Sake

A CSA—Community Supported Agriculture—program connects you with your food. By buying a share in the winter or early spring, you're reserving weekly pick-ups of sustainably-grown produce right here on our farm, straight from our farmers. We plant, grow, and harvest vegetables knowing the faces of the shareholders who will take them home. It's like a weekly vegetable date: from June – November, we get to see you at the same time each week, and you get to watch the farm change through the seasons. This ritual becomes a small, back-to-basics escape that also creates fewer food miles, less waste, and more transparency between you and your food. It represents a commitment to growing and consuming food grown close to home without the use of synthetic chemicals that pollute our soils and waterways. Being a Land's Sake CSA Shareholder feels—and tastes—great!

Joining Our CSA

CSA registration begins each year in December with our Early Bird Registration. This special early registration is available only to CSA Members from years past, and includes a 5% discount on each share. We opened the 2016 Early Bird Registration on December 16, 2015. Regular Registration, which is open to all, began on January 4, 2016 and is now closed for the season.

Joining our CSA also means that you're joining the Land's Sake community. Membership is a requirement to join the program, and we have different levels to suit every individual or family. In addition to being able to join our CSA, you'll also receive special Membership benefits, in addition to supporting the farm. 

Land’s Sake Shareholders pick up their veggies at the CSA tent at 90 Wellesley Street each week on your designated pick-up day. Pick-up days and times include:

  • Tuesdays, 2pm to 7pm (changes to 6pm on September 27) 
  • Thursdays, 2pm to 7pm (changes to 6pm on September 27)
  • Saturdays, 11am to 4m

*PLEASE NOTE: Registration for regular season CSA shares has ended for 2016.
