COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
WHAT IS A CSA HARVEST SHARE?
Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is an arrangement that provides a direct connection between community members and local farmers. CSA members become a part of Ivy Creek Family Farm by purchasing a share of the season’s harvest in advance. We provide CSA farm members with a weekly box of fresh vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers throughout the harvest season.

HOW LONG IS THE HARVEST SEASON?
With our traditional CSA boxes, we provide members with fresh vegetables, herbs, and flowers from late April to early September, totaling 20 weeks of produce, fruits and flowers for farm share members.  Members can choose to purchase a fall share as well, which runs for 8 weeks from early September to early November. 

HOW MUCH FOOD?
Our CSA farm share boxes contain 6-10 different vegetables each week, depending on the season.  We include  5-8 pounds of produce in the box, or approximately one large paper grocery bag full of vegetables.  One whole CSA farm share is suitable for two vegetable enthusiasts or a family of two adults and two children. If you are concerned a share is too much for you, we encourage you to split a share with a neighbor.

WHEN & WHERE DO I PICK UP MY SHARE?
Once a week, you will pick up your vegetables which will vary depending on the harvest. Farm share members choose one of the pick up locations below:
Wednesday, Weaverville Market at Lake Louise Hours: 2:30-6:30pm
Saturday, North Asheville Market: UNCA Campus Hours: 8:00am-121:00pm
Thursday, Farm Pick Up in Barnardsville Hours: 4:00pm-6:00pm
