Community-Supported Agriculture: Vegetables

The Community-Supported Agriculture program (CSA) provides a model of farming directly linking consumers to farmers. With over 120 members, the vegetable CSA provides fresh organic produce to the campus and local community.

Buy a Share

By purchasing a share of the harvest, members are able to pick up fresh vegetables on a weekly basis and have unlimited access to pick-your-own heirloom tomatoes, fresh herbs, hot peppers, edamame, green beans, and an assortment of beautiful flowers.

Invest and Enjoy
This program allows community members the opportunity to invest in local agriculture and enjoy the benefits of fresh organic produce at the same time.

Hampshire College students are welcome to volunteer with the CSA Program, and a limited number of work-study positions are available.

Vegetable CSA Share Information

Produce pick-ups are once a week in the fall for 12 weeks. You choose your pick-up time between noon and 6 p.m. Tuesday or Friday. You must pick up on the same day each week, within pick-up hours, unless you notify us in advance.

Produce is picked up at the CSA barn at the Hampshire Farm.

To become a member, all you need to do is buy a share.

12 week fall share costs $360. For students living in mods, free shares are available. (One free share per mod)
