CSA Registration

Welcome to the 2020 Community Supported Agriculture Season!

    Who's your farmer?

    Crown Point Ecology Center’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is now open! There's nothing like bringing home certified organic and sustainably grown vegetables, herbs, and berries! Even better, knowing exactly where your food comes from, who grew it and how it was grown. There are many positive benefits to being a CSA shareholder, including knowing your produce is chemical free, trying new and delicious foods as well as saving money and time at the grocery store. Not only does being a CSA shareholder have a positive impact on you and your family, but you directly support our farm and community.

    To join our CSA shareholders pay a flat fee at the beginning of the year that directly supports the cost of seeds, supplies and our farm internship program. Our season is 20 weeks and begins the week of May 31st and extends to the week of October 18th. There will be no pickups the week of June 31st. The early weeks of the CSA will include 5-7 vegetables and herbs each week. As the season progresses, the shares grow to 8-12 vegetables and herbs each week. We also occasionally partner with local organic farms to provide additional berries and unique produce to our shareholders. This is a great way to engage you with our local farming community!

    Members of Crown Point receive a 10% discount on CSA shares plus additional member benefits throughout the year including events, plant sale entry and our summer farm and science camp!

    Discounted prices will be visible after a membership option is selected. At least half your total is due with your application as a deposit.

    CSA Shareholders assume the risks of each growing season such as drought, too much rain, unanticipated insect pressure, etc. However, we carefully plan a diverse portfolio of crop varieties to ensure a plentiful harvest, even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. We're in this together!

    Optional Shares

    Egg Share - $60.00
    Fresh, certified organic eggs from Mud Run Farm delivered every other week. Ten dozen throughout the main season.

    Butter Share

    Hartzler's Milk

    All of Hartzler's milk products come in 1/2-gallon recyclable glass bottles.

    Harold Hartzler made the decision in 1964, over thirty years ago, to stop using chemical pesticides, herbicides, and artificial growth hormones on the family farm. He decided to farm in the most natural way possible, depending on earthworms, air, water and sunshine to nourish the soil.

    Every other week for a total of 10.

    White milk shares are $45* - this is $5 off the suggested retail price!

    *Please note those purchasing are not charged for the bottle deposits and are expected to return bottles to Crown Point.

    Whole Milk - 1/2 Gallon (10 pick-ups)
    If you’re looking for old-fashioned milk, this is it. The richest, creamiest product. Many people tell us this is the way it tasted many years ago when milk was delivered to their front door. On cold days, the frozen cream popped the tops off the milk bottles and siblings argued over who got to eat this “iced” cream.

    2% Milk - 1/2 Gallon (10 pick-ups)
    This is a good, flavorful choice for many families. You will see a small cream line inside the top of these red-labeled bottles. You will need to gently shake the bottle to spread the creaminess throughout the milk before serving it.

    1% Skim Milk - 1/2 Gallon (10 pick-ups)
    It tastes great without any of the fat.

    Chocolate Whole Milk - 1/2 Gallon (10 pick-ups)
    Every other week for a total of 10 - $50*

    *Please note those purchasing are not charged for the bottle deposits and are expected to return bottles to Crown Point.
