Priapi Gardens CSA
Welcome to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)! A CSA is a way for a local farmer to partner with consumers, and provide them with fresh local food. Watch a quick video explaining the basics of a CSA by clicking here. A member typically purchases a “share” in the farm and in return picks up their portion of the produce harvested that week. In this way the member shares in the bounty and the associated risk with the farmer. Some weeks the portion might be with many types of produce, others there may be few. It is different than buying produce in the store. A CSA is a concept that supports the local economy. It is not for those that want a “grocery store” selection of produce each week. CSA members pay for their share in the beginning of the year, thereby giving the farmer a means to purchase seed and plant the crops. This partnership between CSA members and farmers is becoming one of the best means to have a secure and safe food source. The large share has 8-10 items (good for family of 2-4) in it each week. The small share has half of the quantity of the same items (good for family of 1-2) as the large in it each week. We now offer 4 segments; Spring (10 weeks)/Summer (22 weeks)/Fall (10 weeks)/Winter. Sign up for any/all seasons in the coming year before December 1st and get a 10% discount!
CSA shares may be picked up in Cecilton at our farm market anytime after 12 noon on Wednesdays through Sunday. Shares not picked up by Monday morning will be donated to Deep Roots at Clairvaux Farm (our local shelter). Shares may also be picked up Wednesday evenings in either Elkton or Newark, each at a private residence. For those that find the Farmers’ Markets we attend more convenient, you may view the list of markets and market seasons/days/times by clicking here. Shares may picked up at any of them except the Sunday Anne Arundel County Farmers’ Market on Riva Rd..
While we would love to accommodate every organic produce-loving customer, we can only fulfill a limited number of CSA shares per season. So sign up for yours today! See seasonal/size shares for purchase below. A CSA season specific to the Anne Arundel Medical Center Energize Farmers’ Market may be purchased below as it runs from June through October.
Please specify in the PayPal “Instructions to merchant” field where you would like to pick up your share.
