By selling membership in advance of the growing season, CSA reduces the burden of up-front costs for the farmer. Your membership fees provide us with money to purchase seed and equipment before the season starts, and we appreciate your commitment. In order to extend the availability of purchasing a CSA share to more people, we offer a sliding fee scale. This means that you can pick your price. Our target prices are listed – this is what we need to run – but if you feel like you cannot make the price, feel free to pay the minimum. Conversely, if you have a little extra to give, we would appreciate it if you could give a little more, effectively subsidizing those who can’t afford the upfront cost.

If you chose to pay the membership fee up front, please enclose a check for your total amount due (made payable to Shepherd Moon Farm) with this signed agreement form by June 1, 2017 (or March 15 to qualify for bonus shares).

By submitting an agreement form you are agreeing to pay the membership fee for the share you indicated above.
All payments are non-refundable after June 15, 2017. Shares are sold on a first come, first served basis and generally are sold out by March. Please inquire in regards to share availability.
