New Life Farm’s 2017 CSA will begin on Tuesday, May 16th, and continue until Tuesday, September 26th, lasting a total of 20 weeks. Depending on seasonable availability, a different combination of vegetables will be provided each week, equaling $25 for full shares, and $15 for half shares. We will offer Fall shares starting in late summer, which will go from October to late November. Details on Fall shares are still in the works. Priority will be given to regular season CSA members before our Fall CSA is offered to anyone else.
As of right now, pickups will be from 4:30 pm to 5:15 PM each Tuesday in both Boone and Lenoir. Once we have received commitments from members, we will determine where the pick-up locations will be in both Boone and Lenoir, based on members input and locations. The option to pick-up your share directly from our farm is also an option, which can take place after 5 PM, at your convenience. Once all of the available shares are filled, an alternate location may be offered if it seems that farm pickup is too out of the way for the majority of the CSA members.
New Life Farm is excited to offer our local community fresh produce and meats from our farm in the form of weekly shares from May to October. Shares will be offered as full shares and half shares, with the option of adding pork and/or chicken to your vegetable shares from our farm.
By becoming a New Life Farm CSA Share Holder, you are becoming more than just a customer. You are choosing to be a partner that is actively participating in sustaining a farm dedicated to producing food that is good for you , and the environment where your food is grown. By pre-paying for a share of produce from our farm, you directly provide our farm with the financial means to purchase the various inputs that are required to start our growing season.
While there is certainly a shared risk in paying for food that has not even been grown yet, you can rest assure that we are doing everything in our power and control to provide the safest and healthiest food we can possibly produce. Our desire is to make our CSA model not just a system of food production and consumption, but a meaningful relationship between farmer and eater.
