Community Supported Agriculture

Most farms that offer CSA’s have them for a period in the summer.  Since we grow in our greenhouses year-round, our boxes are offered year-round. 


We offer 3 options at the farm


  1. Our farmstand is open every day (unless it’s a hurricane or a blizzard). See our listed hours. We work off of an honor box and we live right here so we are usually always open.  You can shop at the stand whenever and select exactly what you want every time.
  2. Set up a prepaid account to shop at the farm at your convenience and not have to worry about having cash or a check.  The minimum to set up an account is $50.  All Prepay accounts are loaded with a 15% prepaid bonus.  Leave us a note in the book of what you bought and we will update your account balance sheet and send it out to you.  Restock your account as needed.
  3. Sign up for a veggie box.  Boxes start at $10 and go up in $5 increments.  They are a grower's choice box though you can customize it to some extent.  Box contents rotate weekly and are selected from whatever produce is available that week.  Special requests are filled in boxes if supplies are available.  Starting at the $15 box you also have the option of adding cheese (rotates weekly) or eggs or alternating cheese and eggs.  Veggie box payments are set up in 10-week increments to make payment easy to budget for both of us.  All prepaid box subscriptions receive a 20% bonus of produce weekly as our thank you for prepaying.  You can select the day of the week that works best for you for consistent pickup at the farm

Frequently Asked Questions

How much produce is in the box?

A $10 box is enough veggies for 1-2 people for 2-3 meals.

A $15 box is enough for 1-2 people for 3-4 meals or 2-3 people for 2-3 meals.

And so on and so forth.

What happens if I am away for a week?

 Three options – arrange for a friend to get your box, take a double box the week before or after your vacation or donate that weeks box to a family in need.  We keep a list of families through Exeter Public Welfare that we can send the box to.  I would just need to know at least a day in advance.

What happens if my delivery day falls on a holiday?

We will reschedule the delivery day for that week's box.  Usually delivery will be the day before or after.  The same holds true for winter boxes in the event of inclement weather.

What if I get something in my box that my family won’t eat?

Let us know at the farm and we will do our best to not include that item in your box again.  A list of favorites that we can substitute is helpful to us too.

How long can I continue with my CSA?

We grow produce year-round.  We set up payment in 10-week intervals to make it simpler on your budget and ours.  You will receive a note in your box at the end of your 10 weeks, if you want to continue – let us know and we can arrange further payment.

What if my box is too big or too small?

Too big – we will reduce the box size and apply credit towards the next 10-week cycle.

Too small – We can increase the box size at any time and just send a check for the balance due for the remainder of the 10-week cycle.

I’m having a summer cookout and want lots of tomatoes this week – can I do that?

Yes, so long as we have at least one day's notice and supplies are available.

I have a garden in the summer and would only like a box off season.  Is this possible?

Absolutely – We have many customers that are winter only and some that are summer only.  Keep in mind that we grow the majority of our produce in the greenhouses on the farm.  That said we are not as tied to outside weather conditions as in the field.  While our produce rotates seasonally, our “seasons” are often longer than the fields.  They start sooner and end later.  For example – last year we picked the last of our tomatoes just before Christmas.   

Is the produce organic?

We are not “certified” organic since hydroponic growing methods are currently not able to be certified by USDA rules.  The fertilizer we use when we grow is water-soluble and not labeled as organic.  While research is being done to create organic fertilizers for hydroponic growers, currently, no satisfactory ones are available.  We do use many organic practices in the greenhouses including the use of biological controls “predator bugs that eat pest bugs” and consequently do not spray insecticides on any of our plants/produce.
That said, not all of the produce in your box comes directly from our farm.  We source out other local produce to fill in the things that are not practical to grow hydroponically or that we do not have the space to grow enough to meet our customers’ needs.  Some of it is certified organic and some aren’t.  All of the farms that we source produce from are reputable growers whose growing methods we trust and support.  Sourced material includes mostly root (potatoes, carrots, beets, etc.) and fruit (apples, blueberries, cranberries, and melons) crops and a few other odds and ends like dried beans, winter squashes, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, an d mushrooms.
