A member of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program purchases a share of a farmer's harvest at the beginning of the season. With that arrangement, the farmer can buy seeds and other supplies that they may need to start the growing season. In return, you receive a weekly basket of produce or bouquet of flowers. An accompanying newsletter includes cooking tips, suggested recipes, and updates about what's happening at the farm.
By purchasing a share of our CSA , you eat seasonally, support your local farmer (that's us!), and know exactly where your food and flowers come from. Send us a message or email if you have questions. You can purchase our 2021 CSAs here.
At Blue Berwyn Farm, we offer a box of seasonal produce each week that can picked up at the farm on Friday or at the farmer's market on Saturday. Each CSA is 9 weeks long and feeds 1 - 2 people.
Our Spring CSA runs from April 23rd through the weekend of June 18th.
Our Summer CSA begins June 25th and ends the weekend of August 20th.
Our Fall CSA starts August 27th and ends the weekend of October 22nd.
Pricing is $225 per share ($25 / week). Discounts are offered if you sign up for more than one 9-week period.
Examples of what you might see in a CSA share:

Note: We don't apply any herbicides and only spray organic pesticides when absolutely necessary. We mainly rely on insect netting to keep pests away from our produce. Let us know if you have any questions on the methods that we use to grow our produce.
As a member of our flower CSA, you receive 6 weeks of local fresh flower bouquets. They can be picked up at the farm on Fridays or at the farmers market on Saturday mornings.
We have an early summer (Early Bird) share that starts in the June 18th and runs through the weekend of July 23rd.
For the second half of the summer, we offer the Late Bloomer bouquets, a 6-week share that begins on August 6th and runs through the weekend of September 10th.
For both shares, you can choose to skip or postpone 1 week.
Pricing is $90 per share.
Note: We don't apply any herbicides or pesticides to our flowers, so you can feel safe bringing them into your home.
