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 the previous year, and includes a 5% discount on each share. Early Bird Registration opens in mid-December. Regular Registration, which is open to all, is open now until shares sell out.

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.

Land’s Sake Shareholders pick up their vegetables at the CSA tent at 90 Wellesley Street each week on their designated pick-up day. CSA Pickups will began the week of June 6, 2017. Pick-up days and times include:

  • Tuesdays, 2pm to 7pm (changes to 6pm the week of September 12)
  • Thursdays, 2pm to 7pm (changes to 6pm the week of September 12)
  • Saturdays, 11am to 4m
  • Winter Share pickups are on Saturdays only, 10 am - 2 pm, on 11/4, 11/18, and 12/2. (The 12/2 Winter Share pickup is at 27 Crescent Street).

Rather than pre-boxed shares, we display our produce and we harvest fresh for each pick-up. All shares (excluding the Winter Share) include pick-your-own beans, cherry tomatoes, peas, some herbs, and flowers.  We offer four types of shares, plus the option of adding a Winter Share onto a Small or Full Share at a $25 discount  (total cost $605 or $855, respectively).
