The Food Project’s summer CSA farm shares are SOLD OUT.
We offer our deepest gratitude to all of the people who supported our North Shore and Greater Boston farms by signing up to become CSA members this year. With your help, we will distribute 75% of our harvest to food insecure families across Eastern Massachusetts this season. Thank you for participating in a sustainable, local food system.
The Food Project CSA Farm Shares
The Food Project provides locally grown, freshly picked produce for purchase through our 20-week CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share program. You can partner with us and support our farmers by purchasing a CSA share in advance of the harvest. Pickup options available in Lincoln, Lynn, and Wenham. All of The Food Project’s vegetables, herbs, berries, and flowers are grown using sustainable growing methods without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Much of this produce typically is grown and harvested by youth in our summer Seed Crew and Root Crew.
2020 Week-One Pickup Days
Lincoln: Tuesday, June 9, and Thursday, June 11
Lynn: Monday, June 15
Wenham: Thursday, June 18
Every day brings a new set of guidelines and restrictions to plan for as COVID-19 reshapes the world around us. We are actively brainstorming how best to get our produce to our customers safely and efficiently. What we can say definitively is that we will have a CSA; we plan to deliver on our promise to provide our customers with high quality, locally-grown produce. Our farmers are committed to providing you and your family with safe, clean, fresh food. We feel that the current state of the world only exaggerates the needs we already seek to fill, and we are more excited than ever about the opportunity to feed you in this chaotic, uncertain time. From our farm to your kitchen, you can count on us. We will send an email to all CSA members before each pickup day, which will include an update of protocols for each of our CSA sites.
We have instituted new food and worker safety procedures, in accordance with the most up-to-date recommendations from the CDC and public health authorities. Simultaneously, we are developing contingency plans for growing and distribution, in accordance with social distancing guidelines. Some options currently in consideration are setting up hand-washing stations, pre-bagging individual portions of produce, packing entire boxes, and/or asking customers to sign up for a specific pick-up time slot. We appreciate your patience as we navigate the latest recommendations for disease prevention. Rest assured that we are doing our best to keep you nourished, safe, and healthy. If you have any specific CSA pickup questions or requests, please contact [email protected].
