Is this a CSA? (Community Supported Agriculture)
Our farm program has evolved to suit our community's needs. Instead of receiving a standard box of produce, our members get exactly what they want. Members are a part of the farm's ecology. This farm isn't just supported by community — we operate as a collective. This is community agriculture.
The structure of our 2018 membership program is most akin to a "free choice" or"buy down" CSA. Members purchase credit at the start of the season, and choose exactly what they want to receive from the farm.
We farm in the Mohawk Valley, just north of Marcola.
Our farmstand is in the River Road area of Eugene.
What's a "free choice" or "buy-down" CSA?
A "buy-down" CSA operates like a credit account. Members purchase credit at the beginning of the season and then order exactly what they want each week. Members are not required to order every week, and the goal is to use all their credit by the end of the year.
Members can decide how much they want to add to their account and receive a 10% discount. For example:
Receive $300 of food credit for $270
Receive $500 of food credit for $450
Receive $1,000 of food credit for $900
Contributions must be made in $100 increments with a $300 minimum. Credit is used to purchase vegetables, ferments, and more throughout the season. Submit your payment by May 15, and receive a 10% off of your groceries!
How does ordering work?
Ordering will open from May 25 — October 27
Each week, we will send an availability list / order form to our members.
Select the produce you want (or choose to receive the farmer's choice box) using our ordering app or via email. Orders will be due by Wednesday morning.
Pick up your order at our Friday Farmstand or receive a delivery at your home. If you can't make it Friday, pick up your order on Monday.
What's in the Farmer's Choice box?
Members who appreciate a traditional CSA box can choose to receive a Farmer's Choice box. We will select 5-8 choice vegetable items or preserves that we think you will love! Order a box on a whim, or elect for a whole season of choice veggies. Choose a small box ($15 value) or large ($25).
How does delivery work?
We encourage members to pick up their shares at the Walnut Farmstand. If this isn't possible, we offer a delivery service! Delivery within two miles of our farmstand at 735 Walnut Ave. or within the Mohawk Valley (south of Mabel) is a $60 annual fee. Delivery within the greater Eugene/Springfield area is $110/year. Delivery minimum is $15. Let us know if you have questions.
Do you wish we had a drop site in your area?
Let us know if you are interested in hosting a pick-up site on your front porch or at your business!
At the farmstand, we throw barbecues and movie nights. We'll stay in touch with opportunities for you to connect at the farmstand as well as at our farm in the Mohawk Valley!
