What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Our Farmers' Market Share CSA at Wildstone Farm
Our Farmers' Market Share CSA uses a debit-style system. As a member you can purchase a share, the size that is convenient for you, which is redeemable for whatever we sell at the Bennington Farmers' Market. Your account is updated with each purchase. We ask that shares be fully redeemed by year's end; we will not carry balances over into the next calendar year.
Farm and Northern Berkshire CSA Shares
Receive our on farm CSA shares for 20 weeks, June thru October. Shares will be available for pick up at the farm Tuesdays 3-6pm and Fridays 3-6pm. In addition there will be shares delivered to drop off sites in Williamstown and North Adams between 3-6pm Wednesdays (if we get enough interest).
We are exploring ways to build in choice using the internet. The concept is we will publish the coming week's share along with alternatives. If you wish to make substitutions you would respond to us by a certain time prior to pick up. This way we will be able to pick to order allowing you to customize your share if you choose. If you forgot to or choose not to customize your share you will receive that week's farmer's choice share. We are really excited to be able to offer this new feature!
