CSA Share Options

The Summer Share runs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for 22 weeks, from the week of June 3, 2024 through the week of November 1, 2024. Pick-up sites include Athol, Barre, Gardner, Holden, Shrewsbury, Warwick and Worcester.

In 2024, we are offering 3 sizes for Summer CSA shares- Large, Medium, and Small.

We are offering shares on a sliding scale again this year.  You decide the share amount based on your ability to pay.  Prices induce pick-up fees.

  • Large Summer Produce Share: $775 – $875 for the full season.
    This share is perfect for a family or household with 3 or more people who
    love to eat vegetables or someone who likes to preserve food throughout the
    season. See photos of the large share throughout the season below – it
    fluctuates with the time of year, but it is always bountiful!

    • SNAP Large Summer Produce Share: $725

  • Medium Summer Produce Share: $575-$675 for the full season.
    We recommend this share size for a household of 2 or 3 people who cook at
    home throughout the week. A medium share is about 2/3 of a large share.

    • SNAP Medium Summer Produce Share: $525

  • Small Produce Share: $450-$550 for the full season. This share size will be perfect for an individual who might cook at home a few times per week.  A small share is about 1/2 of a large share.
    • SNAP Small Summer Produce Share: $425

Please note that early in the season there is less food available, with the heaviest times being mid-August – October.

If you order after the CSA season begins, prices will be pro-rated based on the week you order. See our order form for pro-rated options after harvest begins.

SNAP Participants

Special Payments for the CSA can be made using Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits. We are partners with HIP (Healthy Incentives Program), managed through the Department of Transitional Assistance. Program participants can pick up at all sites. HIP will partially match your CSA purchase with more dollars. Contact Julie: julie@mhof.net or 978-257-1192 (cell) to sign up.

If the payment plan listed on our order form creates a hardship, please contact us to create an individualized plan, understanding that we cannot provide food that has not yet been paid for.

Our cancellation policy

We encourage you to stick with the CSA for the season and learn what eating in season really entails. If you need to leave us before the season is done, you may request a refund for the value of your remaining shares and delivery fees, less a $50 handling fee.
