The new CSA website is up – www.farmersfreshcsa.com. It has a lot of new information about how the CSA’s going to work this year.
The $100 membership fee is required to subscribe. It comes with these benefits.
But you can buy produce from the online store without being a member. This could be a good option for someone who wants to stick his or her toe in first.
Then there’s more flexibility in what you can add on, too. I’m considering adding muffins in the hopes of getting more Ezekiel muffins.
The standard length is 4 weeks instead of 12. You can set your account to be billed automatically. And you can suspend a delivery with 4 days notice and get credited a future week. That’ll be great for vacations and such.
For reference, last year I had a standard bag with premium additions from October through December. So that’s what you’re looking at in most of my posts. A standard bag is roughly equivalent to a Family Pack, and the premium additions are like the Gourmet + ½ dozen eggs in terms of the 2009 price structure. (Farmers, please tell me if I have this wrong.)
Here is a picture of a standard bag (~= Family Pack) from last July.
What do you all think of the new pricing structure? What packages are you considering?
