Details, Details... Read below, but also know this: In 2018 all new 18-24 week members receive a free From Asparagus to Zucchini CSA Cook Book! :-D (And all who pay in full receive an beautiful, all-natural market bag as a hearty thank you!)

One of our small family shares.   

CSA members can Custom Build their perfect scenario in veggies, berries and proteins.  You choose what goes in your box, your weeks, your delivery spot and your proteins.  We even offer honey from the bees that live and play on our farm!

CSA members can put their share on hold, switch sizes and delivery points any time throughout the season.  We just need two days notice.

We pride ourselves on excellent customer service, answering questions and emails ASAP to ensure a seamless and excellent relationship.

CSA members are invited to farm events & classes.

We (farmers Ryan & Andrea) put our CSA members FIRST.  That means you get access to our best items even if that means we can't bring them to market or offer them to our wholesale accounts.          

Member Review:  "I Cannot say enough good about Providence Farm! We LOVE partaking in the CSA and getting our share each week is so exciting. We have been CSA members for years now.
