Fazenda Boa Terra LLC

About Our CSA

What does Fazenda Boa Terra offer?

We are a more traditional vegetable CSA. We offer Farmers Market Shares, 20 and 10 week vegetable share and optional winter storage crop boxes. We grow over 50 different vegetable crops and over 150 varieties. Click here list of what we grow.

In addition to vegetables we also raise a limited number of pastured broiler chickens. The chickens are for sale on a first come first serve basis when they become available. As our farm grows over the next few years we will add more diversity such as fruit, eggs, beef and grains eventually culminating into a whole diet CSA hopefully in partnership with other local organic farmers.

Our Farmer's Market CSA has been a very popular option that we added in 2015. 'Compost guilt' is one of the primary reasons that people don't reenroll in a CSA. Our Market CSA is the perfect counter to this. When you become a Market CSA member you get to buy what you want when you want and eliminate a great deal of waste so you never have to feel guilty again about not using up your share. As an added bonus your membership allows you to save money relative to our Market Stand pricing as you receive an instant credit on your account as a reward for your prepayment.

What are my share options?

We offer three share options, a regular share, an every other week share and a work share and a winter share.

  • The Regular Share is a normal full share at the full price with 20 weekly deliveries.
  • The Every Other Week Share is a regular full share that you pickup every 2 weeks for 10 weeks.
  • The Winter Share has 3 deliveries, one in mid-November, one in mid-December and one in mid-January. Each share has ~55 pounds of produce such as beets, onions, garlic, rutabaga, winter squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, cabbage, kohlrabi and weather permitting: kale, brussels sprouts and collards.

 How much will it cost?

  • A Full Share is  $625 for the 2017 season.
  • An Every Other Week Share is $350 for the 2017 season.
  • The Winter Share is valued at $175 for 2017
  • Join by February 1st and receive a $20 discount at checkout. Discount does not apply to the Winter Share.
  • Returning members will receive a discount for continuing to support our farm. Unfortunately this does not apply to our Farmer's Market CSA as we will lose money if we discount this option overmuch.

What if I need a little help to cover the cost?

Never hesitate to ask for some assistance covering your share. We want everyone to have access to fresh delicious food. You can also download the food for all from the website, just fill it out and return it and we will do everything we can to help out.
