It is different in that you get to use your payment as credit at our farm stands at the Wednesday and Saturday markets. This allows you to CHOOSE exactly when, what and how much you want! With the CSA market share, you are a part of the farm, get our wonderful vegetables and flowers and get the choose what you get.
The season is also runs longer, from the beginning of April when the North Asheville Tailgate Market opens until the second Saturday in December, a full 36 weeks!.
The CSA market shares are in the amount of $300, $400 or $500 for the season. The $300 share receives an additional 5% credit for a total of $315, the $400 share an addtional 7% for $428 and the $500 share an additional 10% for $550.
We will keep track of your credit and periodically, and upon request, update you on your balance. Credit left over at the end of the season does not roll over to the next season and remains with the farm.
The only drawbacks to this system, as we see it, are that, in general, the Regular CSA gets priority on our vegetables and fruit, and that our best selection of items is at the beginning of market each day, not the end. The markets are first come, first serve, so you’ll want to arrive early for things like blueberries, early squash and tomatoes etc.
