CSA

Community Supported Agriculture

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.

Registration for 2020 CSA shares will open to the public at the beginning of January 2020!

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 through October, 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!

We also partner with local baker Bread Obsession to provide 20-week or 8-week shares of fresh, locally baked bread. Bread Shares can be purchased separately or as an add-on to your CSA share.

Joining Our CSA

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, including the knowledge that you are supporting the farm.

Early Bird Registration: Every December, we offer CSA shareholders from the previous year the opportunity to participate in a special Early Bird Registration period from mid-December to early January. During this time, we offer a 5% discount on your CSA share.

Options & Pricing

We offer four types of vegetable shares, plus the option of adding a Winter Share onto a Small or Full Share at a $30 discount. We also offer a Bread Share.  All vegetable shares (excluding the Winter Share) include pick-your-own beans, cherry tomatoes, peas, some herbs, and flowers.

Here's a table outlining the different types of shares. For more details on each type of share, scroll down below the table. You can also download a PDF of this table by clicking here: CSA calendar 2020

When & Where

Land’s Sake Shareholders pick up their vegetables at the CSA tent and/or their bread at the Farmstand at 90 Wellesley Street, Weston, MA each week on their designated pick-up day. Rather than pre-boxed shares, we display our produce and we harvest fresh for each pick-up.

Full and Small CSA Vegetable pick-ups begin the week of June 9, 2020, and run through the week of October 20. Winter Share pick-ups are on three Saturdays, 10 am - 2 pm: 11/7, 11/21, and 12/5. Back to School Vegetable CSA pick-ups begin the week of September 1 and run through the week of October 20th, and also include the three Winter Share pickups. Back to School Bread Share pick-ups begin the week of September 1 and run through the week of October 20th. You can download our CSA calendar with the pickup details at the following link: CSA calendar 2020

Full, Small, Back to School, and Bread Share pickup times:

  • Tuesdays: 2 pm - 7 pm
  • Thursdays: 2 pm - 7 pm
  • Due to the earlier fall sunsets and loss of daylight, starting the week of September 10 and continuing through the week of October 15, the CSA tent will close at 6 pm instead of 7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • Saturdays: 11 am - 4 pm

Winter Share Pickup Dates and Times:

  • Saturdays, Nov 7 & 21, and Dec 5.
  • 10 am to 2 pm.
  • Please note that the December 7 pick-up will be at Land’s Sake’s Greenhouse at 27 Crescent St, Weston, MA.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE ON DIRECTIONS: The 27 Crescent St address tends to confuse GPS applications, so enter "25 Crescent St" into your GPS instead of “27 Crescent St.” Then, once you are on Crescent St, look for #27. There will be a mailbox and a “Land’s Sake” sign with our logo on it. Turn into the driveway for 27 Crescent St, which is long and narrow (please drive slowly, as it’s only one lane). Follow the driveway through the woods to a parking lot, a Farmhouse, and a Greenhouse. The share pickup is in the Greenhouse. If you are navigating the old-fashioned way, please know that Crescent St is off of Rt. 20/Boston Post Road, on the east side of Weston.

If this is your first CSA season with us, we ask that you attend one 30 min CSA orientation at the farm (90 Wellesley St in Weston). You may choose any one of the dates below:

  • Thursday, 5/14, 6-6:30 pm
  • Saturday, 5/16, 11-11:30 am
  • Tuesday, 5/19, 6-6:30 pm

After the orientation, you are welcome to stay later and walk around, picnic and enjoy the farm!
