Imagine the tastiest, most nutritious, veggies and herbs fresh from the garden, washed and ready for you to enjoy.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system where the community shares the risks and rewards of small scale farming. Members buy in at the start of the season and receive weekly basket of farm-fresh produce. This gives members access to fresh, in-season veggies cheaper than buying the products individually. It gives the farmer security in knowing that there is a market for her product.
When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a "share" of vegetables from Moondance and enjoy eating seasonal produce available. Weekly, from July until October, you will pick up your veggies, herbs and cut flowers for the week.
At Moondance, we offer 2 sizes of baskets from July to October.
The foods will change with the season, with lots of cleansing salad greens in the spring, and pumpkins, squash and potatoes in the fall. It is important to understand that what is available totally depends on how the season goes. Each year some things produce really well and others don't, so availability and quantity vary with what the season brings!
Full Share (well suited to 2 veggie loving adults and 2-3 children)
Half Share (well suited to 2 adults or 1 veggie loving adult)
Convenient, Customizable and Best field to fork experience
Starting in July you get 15 weeks of the best out of the garden, prepared and ready for you

FAQ Moondance CSA Baskets
How do I sign up and pay?
Sign up form is online. To hold your spot for baskets half (or full payment) is due at signup. The balance is due at the first basket pick up.
How do I decide which share size to choose?
We suggest that the large share feeds a family of four or two people who eat a lot of vegetables. The small share provides half the amount of the large share and is suitable for a small family, two people who eat fewer vegetables or a single person who eats a lot of vegetables.
It is hard for us to know exactly how many vegetables each person and each family eats.
It varies greatly depending on how much you cook at home vs. eat out, if you make your lunches, if you entertain regularly, if you want to preserve some of the fresh produce for the winter and simply how you eat.
Can I change the size of the share or pick up day part way through the season?
It may be possible to change your share size part way through the season. Contact us to see if this is available at that time.
How do I communicate my feedback with the farmers?
We welcome feedback (both positive and constructive!) throughout the season by email, by phone, or in person at the market.
What can I expect at the share pick-up?
Come to the barn on your pick up day, let a staff member know that you are here. There will be a sign board with the items available and how many items to fill your basket. There will be a leave or exchange basket at the end. Enjoy a few minutes out in the gardens to pick a small bouquet of flowers and your choice of culinary herbs (if you wish).
What happens if I can't pick up my share, if something comes up, or I'm on vacation?
Please let us know as soon as possible and we can work out the best solution. It is possible for you to send someone (family member, friend, coworker) to pick up your share. Please give them all the information they need and remind them to bring bags or boxes and to leave the bin behind. If you do not pick up your basket or cancel it will be donated.
