CSA Program

Please sign up by May 15!

Welcome to the home of the Mapleville Farm CSA! CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and it is a food system that allows the consumer to invest directly into a local producer. It works like a subscription where the consumer pays an upfront fee and receives a box of fresh vegetables every week for the growing season. This farmer/consumer relationship removes the middleman and provides the farmer with the capital they need at the time of year when, traditionally, income from vegetable production is scarce. The consumer adopts the risks and rewards of growing food alongside their farmer, with the rewards being a plentiful harvest of the freshest, quality produce for their meals each week and the direct involvement in the livelihood of a local business.

So when does this happen?
The Mapleville Farm CSA season will begin Saturday, June 22 and run 18 weeks to October 19. Please sign up by May 15!
When do I pick up my veggies?
Pick-ups for the 2019 CSA will be at Mapleville Farm on Saturdays between the hours of 12:00 and 5:00pm.
How much does a share cost?
The cost for a share will be $500.00. This works out to paying $27.00 per week in vegetables and shares will be packed with at least $28.00 worth of produce at market value. Please note: if paying online there is a $14.90 transaction fee.
What kinds of vegetables do I get?
What about your growing methods? Are you organic?
We are not certified organic, but grow happy and healthy vegetables with good practices. Most of your produce will be coming out of the field, although a portion will be grown in the aquaponics greenhouse. Expect the same care and quality that we put into our baking to go into the ethics and growing techniques of our produce.
How do I sign up?
Payments can be made online via Paypal, or by mailing the signup agreement (available below) with a check or money order to: Mapleville Farm 544 Victory Hwy, Mapleville RI 02839. You are also welcome to sign up in person at the bake shoppe.
What if I miss a week?
What if I can't get someone to pick up for me?
If you miss your pick-up entirely, the vegetables will not be wasted! Unclaimed shares will be donated to a local food pantry.
