What Is CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)?
In essence the purchase of a farm "Share" gives the consumer fresh local produce all season long. By commiting to buy the vegetables, the consumer receives delicious, freshly picked, local produce at below the retail cost and the farmer reduces the time and money spent on marketing during the season and receives more of the actual food dollar. The consumer also caries some risk with the farmer, but also benefits. For example, if pollination is poor in the squash field, there will be few squash, but another crop will be more bountiful. A "Share" is basically like a subscription in that you pay up front (February) and then when the vegetables and strawberries are ripe, they are harvested, cleaned, and delivered/picked-up the same day, which guarantees the share members the finest quality available!
Why Join A CSA?
Know where your food is grown! As a NOFA-VT farm we do not use any genetically engineered seeds, harmful pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides that damage your health and the environment.
Reduce packaging, distribution and transportation waste, and your carbon footprint!
Broaden your food horizons by sampling some unusual varieties with recipes which we gladly share, and increase your dinning enjoyment.
Live a healthier life Studies now show food that travels less is more nutritional than food that has traveled cross country or internationally.
Support a local family farm, that, in turn, supports other local businesses and labor, while practicing healthy land stewardship and ensuring clean green space in Vermont.
Learn about how your food is grown by visiting the farm and build a healthy new link to your community.

Our CSA Offerings
We offer two types of CSA share. You can choose to pick up a prepared box of produce each week at Newport Natural Foods (on Main Street in Newport, VT), or use your share to purchase items whenever you like at our farm stand during our regular hours of operation.
Members who pick-up at Newport Natural receive a pre-packed box of vegetables (you have an option for choosing your vegetables for your box!) on either Monday or Thursday afternoons from mid June through October. A delivery fee is added to the share cost to cover the expense of preparing and delivering boxes each Monday or Thursday. Those members who pick-up at the farm use their share to shop at the farm stand. These members also receive a 20% reduction on their tab!
Members shopping at the farmstand may apply their CSA share amount and their 20% discount towards all of our farmstand products. This includes all our own products (produce, eggs, flowers, jams, honey, plants) and the products we carry from other producers (organic yogurt, cheese, salad dressings, seeds, and maple syrup).
Other Perks For CSA Members
Included in your membership is the ability to pick your own green beans, yellow wax beans, and Edamame soy beans at no extra cost (please note your interest in the sign-up form). Berry Creek Farm CSA Members may also order our farm-raised, freezer-ready beef and pork, at an additional cost (please see sign-up form for more details). We also offer a regular email newsletter and recipes.
