VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLAR 

CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture,” and is not only an amazing way to support your health with more nutrient dense produce, but is a wonderful way to vote with your dollar for local, sustainable, and environmentally considerate agriculture. CSA members are invited to share in the joys, and the risks of small scale agriculture, which allows them to connect deeply with their farmers and the earth where their food is grown.

FAQ

I can't afford to pay for the entire share up front. Can I still participate?

Further Up Farms deeply believes that good food should be accessible—to that end we are continually working to improve opportunities for all families and individuals—please contact us for our most current financial assistance programs.

What if I am not able to/forget to pickup my share?

You are responsible to pick up your CSA share at the designated location and agreed-upon schedule, or to arrange for a friend or family member to pick it up in your absence. In the event of non-collection, you will forfeit that week’s share, and instead it will be donated to a family in need. 

Can I change my Share Size part-way through the season?

If additional shares are available mid-season, you may be able to add to your share size at a pro-rated price. Any reduction in share size may incur a fee.
