What is a CSA? What does it mean to be a member, and is there a membership fee?
CSA stands for “community supported agriculture”. When you join a CSA, you subscribe to a weekly produce service. Each member receives a share of the harvest delivered to a designated drop location or your home/office. Foster Brady Farm does not charge a membership fee.
How much does a share cost? How do I pay?
Weekly membership rate is $30/week. Annual membership rate is $25/week. Don’t have the funds to pay for the year up front? You can set up a payment plan with a minimum $100 deposit. The deposit will be applied to your final four shares. We accept check or cash. Payment is accepted at time of pickup or checks may be mailed to or dropped off at 144 Hiawassee Ave, Athens, 30601.
Where do I pick up my CSA share?
We currently offer the following options: 1.) Athens on Wednesdays, 144 Hiawassee Ave, 30601. We offer flexible pick up at this location with shares available after 4:00p and can be picked up anytime before the following Tuesday. 2.) On-farm pickup Thursdays, 5:30 – 6:30p, 4290 Snows Mill Rd, Monroe, 30655. 3.) We offer home/office delivery to parts of the Athens – Monroe – Watkinsville areas. Delivery fees apply. Group delivery of multiple shares is free!
How many people does a share feed?
It’s specific to one’s lifestyle. Generally, one share provides a two person household with produce for a week. We suggest families order two shares. Some clients split shares with friends, but splitting shares may result in fatal games of rock-paper-scissors.
Can I pick what varieties I get each week? No. All CSA members receive equal portions of freshly harvested crops. But please reach out to us with suggestions!
What happens if I go out of town and can’t pick up my share?
If you notify us at time of payment, you can opt out during your absence. When paying for the year in advance and unsure of dates but know you’ll get out of town at some point, go ahead and subtract a couple weeks and have them as floaters throughout the year. We do not offer reimbursements so if your trip is spontaneous, we suggest having a friend pick up your share.
What is Certified Naturally Grown?
Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) is a sustainable farming certification program designed for small scale farmers. CNG farmers don’t use any synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. CNG standards for produce and livestock certification are similar to the standards of the U.S. National Organic Program. Learn more at http://www.cngfarming.org
