2020 – CHOICE Details SIGN UP NOW
Choose a program that meets your needs and then come to your pick up site and pick out your own food. Plus, you get to talk to your farmer every week, so you and your kids can know where your food came from and how it was grown. Program foods are either grown on the farm or sourced locally. Our farm values and looks for small scale producers that use organic and/or sustainable methods.
COVID-19: With the world of COVID-19, our pickup protocol will likely change on our truck to help keep members and staff safe. Although, to start the season, you will not likely be coming onto the truck to get your food, we are committed to finding safe ways for you to choose what you will take home. An official update will come out closer to May when we know all of the current information.
OMNIVORE: Includes veggies, fruit, meat, eggs, cheese, and bread and seasonal bulk canning/freezing items (tomatoes, cukes, etc.). Includes access to a menu of items not included in the program that are available for a la carte purchase (honey, maple syrup, etc.)
VEGETARIAN: Includes veggies, fruit, eggs, cheese, and bread and seasonal bulk canning/freezing items (tomatoes, cukes, etc.). Includes access to a menu of items not included in the program that are available for a la carte purchase (meat, honey, maple syrup, etc.)
PRODUCE ONLY: Will include veggies and fruit and seasonal bulk canning/freezing items (tomatoes, cukes, etc.). Includes access to a menu of items not included in the program that are available for a la carte purchase (meat, honey, maple syrup, etc.)
Home Delivery: CHOICE Meatless and Full Spectrum CSA options can be home delivered on Tuesdays in our delivery area. We charge an additional $7.70/wk (i.e $200/year) for this convenience. Simply choose the home delivery option when you go through the sign up process. CURRENTLY OUR HOME DELIVERY ROUTES ARE FULL. PLEASE SIGN UP ANYWAY AND BE ADDED TO OUR WAITING LIST. DEPENDING ON YOUR LOCATION, WE MAY BE ABLE TO SNEAK YOU INTO THE ROUTE. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO ACCOMMODATE AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE CAN.
How Much: Price is based on how many people are in your family. The contract runs for the entire season, so members commit to paying for the full 26 weeks of service. Members can pay all at once, or put down a deposit and schedule automated monthly payments for the season.
Price Chart: Take a look at the program that you are interested in and use the chart to determine the full cost. Example: A family with 2 adults and one child between the ages of 5 and 10 that chose the Omnivore option would pay….$121/wk. OR $54+$54+$13=$121*26 = $3146 for the season.
Pay installments: Setting up a payment program is easy. Any membership option will ask for a deposit, due at the time of pick up, and then divide the remaining balance into 6 additional installments that will begin in May. Your payment program is set up with a credit/debit card to generate automated payments.
Food Equity Program: NEW this year as we continue to build community through local and sustainable food, we have started a food equity program that is designed to build and support a more diverse community and make food more accessible to everyone. Members that value this concept and want to contribute financially may do so. Members that need extra support may request it.

CSA Organic Disclaimer: The vast majority of what goes into CSA shares is grown in accordance of standards set for organic certification and is certified organic, but on occasion some crops come from other farms or fields that, while managed in a way consistent with certified organic crops, are not currently certified. Any uncertified items are always disclosed in our newsletters.
Our mission is to build deep and nourishing relationships with the families that support the farm while providing a realistic variety of local foods to them. We strive to provide our customers with access to food that supports their values; making food more than just a meal. We will produce the majority of the foods at the farm and rely on other local and sustainable producers to help increase selection, ultimately creating an experience that invites members to share in the celebrations and challenges that farming brings.

Winter choice program is a fantastic program. I am totally pleased.
Delicious food, tons of choices, and lots of flexibility. This program is a great way to get delicious healthy food and choose just what you need. I absolutely recommend this program!!
The flexibility is wonderful- I love being able to take just what I like and need, but still have the chance to try vegetables that are new to me. The vegetables are more tasty, ripe and fresh than any supermarket offers. And it’s really convenient to be able to get high-quality local meat, cheese and bread at the same stop. It’s excellent value for the price.
Great farm! Great food! The choice program is serving our family so well this summer! And both Tim and April are so kind and willing to help the community!
"LotFotL's CHOICE CSA exceeded our expectations last year. The selection each week was extensive, the quality and freshness were fantastic, we were in and out in 15 minutes most weeks so it was a huge time savings for us (not insignificant when you have small children), and honestly it saved us money in the long run. We spent a lot less time at the grocery store each week so there was fewer impulse buys. We also enjoyed how the CHOICE CSA program made us more creative in the kitchen. It really helped us hone our weekly meal planning so that we're eating simple, satisfying, local food each week. Can't wait for the next season to start!" -- Jennifer & Alex Deal
