How our CSA works?
It’s not your typical boxed share that we fill. YOU pick what you want each week.
Our CSA is divided into 4 sessions, each lasting five weeks, during the summer months. In addition to selecting a share size that works for you -- family or mini -- you can opt to participate in any number of sessions, from one to all four, AND you can mix sessions and sizes to fit your schedule and needs (i.e. sessions 1 and 3, 2 and 4; family share session 1 and mini-share session 3, etc.). Family shares are $100/session and mini-shares, $55/session. If you choose to participate in all 4 sessions, the total cost is $400 for a family share or $220 for a mini share.
If you go on vacation for a week or two, you do not need to order. As long as you spend your $100/$55 within that 5-week period you are good. The money acts like a credit. You need to spend that money within each 5-week session or you will lose it.
We offer a number of options for picking up your shares:
Penacook Farmers Market (95-97 Village Street) on Mondays 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Canterbury Farmers Market (9 Center Road) on Wednesdays 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Delivery to your home (see below) on Tuesdays 10:00 am - 1 :00 pm

Laconia Farmer’s Market (45 Beacon Street East) on Saturdays 8:00 am to 12:00 pm
Free CSA?!? How is that possible?
Did you know you can get your CSA session(s) free? What you need to do:
Organize a group of folks who want access to local, nutritious, chemical free food. The number of people depends upon the location but seven (7) is a minimum (including yourself). Provide a location for us to drop off – can be residential or business. Be available Tuesday mornings for order drop-offs. You will coordinate with the group to pick up their share at your location.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Do we deliver? YES!!
For an extra $35 per session and as long as the delivery radius is within 10 miles we can deliver to a single family. See above for the free CSA option. The delivery radius expands for group deliveries.
