The One Adult Household share is on a sliding scale from $435-$550. (The share per week is $19 per week). One Adult shares are limited due to limited space in the parking lot and the farm budget.

HEALTHY FOOD FOR ALL SHARES

We are proud to be part of the Healthy Food for All Program. Healthy Food for All is a farmer-driven initiative that partners local CSA farms with Cornell Cooperative Extension to make fresh, seasonal produce accessible to all community members regardless of income. We have a limited amount of subsidized shares. Check out the link for details.

WHAT'S THIS SLIDING SCALE ALL ABOUT?

First and foremost, If you made it to this page we want you to pull the trigger and buy a share. Please feel comfortable paying $580 for a Two Adult Household Share.

The Sliding scale option provides you an opportunity to pay more for the share if you feel you can afford the extra cost and you feel good about paying a bit more. Here is the reason why you may feel obliged to pay more. Primarily, we have a sliding scale for our members so you have the opportunity to contribute to assist in providing a living wage for our employees. We are dedicated to this effort and are happy to say that many of our members have contributed a little more over the past few years. The simple fact is that farming organically and with people is expensive. It seems that the sliding scale is a good way for us to pay a living wage for our employees and keep the base price of our CSA affordable for our community without jeopardizing the quality and care that go into our farming operation.

That being said. Here are your payment options!

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE TWO ADULT HOUSEHOLD SHARE?

  • Weekly distribution of richly grown produce of your choice in a Filled Sweet Land Farm bag. You pick and choose the vegetables each week that go into your bag.
  • Itemized vegetables including tomatoes and garlic.
  • Access to u-pick crops like strawberries, raspberries, peas, beans, flowers, kale, chard, etc. Most of the u-pick crops become unlimited! When we say unlimited we mean it!
  • Invitation to farm events
  • An invitation to come to the farm for family or personal recreation - walks, picnics, etc.
  • A Sweet Land Farm bag for new members
  • Access to recipes from CookWithWhatYouHave.com

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE SINGLE ADULT HOUSEHOLD SHARE? 

  • Weekly distribution of richly grown produce of your choice in a Half Filled Sweet Land Farm bag 
  • Itemized vegetables including tomatoes and garlic
  • Access to u-pick crops
  • Invitation to farm events
  • An invitation to come to the farm for family or personal recreation - walks, picnics, etc.
  • A Sweet Land Farm bag for new members
  • Access to recipes from CookWithWhatYouHave.com
  • Note: The only difference between the Single Adult Share and the Two Adult Share will be that the Single Adult Share receives a half a bag of vegetables every week. The itemized limits will be the same as the Two Adult Share ie. you will receive the same amount of tomatoes and garlic. The u-pick limits are the same as well as the invitation to farm events and access to the farm. 
  • Another Important note: The Single Adult Household Share is not a half share. It is not for two adults. If another adult is in your household and they 'do not eat vegetables' or have another source of vegetables this share is not for you. If you have two adults in your household I would hope you would purchase the two adult household share and help us cover the true cost of sustainable farming. We are in this together, the cost of the CSA share covers the expenses of the farm. That is how it is priced. We work hard to keep the share affordable and are committed to investing in soil fertility and paying our employees a living wage. We are happy to be involved in the Healthy Food For All program, which helps families who qualify receive financial assistance to purchase a CSA share.



DISTRIBUTION:

Shareholders come to the farm to pick up their share. PYO (pick your own) crops can be harvested anytime during the season any time between dawn and dusk, and as often as you wish. The Summer 2018 CSA season runs for 23 weeks (start date to be determined). Distributions will be held on the farm every Tuesday or Friday from 1-7p.m. Members may come to either distribution day, but only once per week. The distribution shed is also open from 8-noon on Saturdays for people who missed the main distribution, however we do not staff or restock the barn. Members may switch between distribution days as often as they wish – there is no need to let the farm know if you are coming Tuesday one week, and Friday the next. You will find the distribution barn and farm layout beautiful and easy to use.
