No Pesticides – No Herbicides – No Fungicides –
Unlike conventional farming, we are building up our soil so that it will be able to be used for years to come without chemicals & synthetic fertilizers. By using rich organic material in our gardens, rotational & successional plantings, row covers, & more, we work to keep bug & disease at a minimum and so produce quality food you can eat with confidence.

• Why do a CSA? This provides an opportunity to partner with a local farm. With your CSA membership, the farm receives ‘seed money’ at the start of the season in exchange for a share in the harvest during the length of the membership. Its a way to make a vested interest in local agriculture while enjoying the rewards of seasonal produce free from herbicides, pesticides, GMO’s, and synthetic fertilizers.
• Where will pickup be? All pickups will take place on Saturdays this year. CSA customers may pick up their weekly box of produce at the farm  or at one of our weekly farmers markets: Leesburg, Falls Church, Reston, Burke, or Stone Ridge.

• What to expect? 1 Share will typically feed 2-3 people who prepare meals about 4 times per week. There will be a weekly assortment of our best produce. Over the course of the season, veggies will include: spinach, head lettuce, radishes, kale, beets, zucchini, cucumbers, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, basil, & more. Approximately a 1/2 bushel of veggies. You can expect 7-10 items each week.

What do you mean by seasonal produce? Eating seasonally means you will receive veggies depending on the current growing season. Below is an example of what you might find in your seasonal basket throughout the three seasons. For example, you wouldn’t expect to find tomatoes before July.

SUMMER
Example One: 3 mini heads of lettuce or 1 bag of loose leaf lettuce mix, 1 bunch swiss chard,  2 lb zucchini/squash, 3 lbs tomatoes, 1 qrt. cherry tomatoes, 1 lb potatoes, 1/2 lb. bell pepper, 1 bunch basil

Example Two: 1 bag of spinach, 1 bunch kale,  2 lb zucchini/squash, 3 lbs tomatoes, 1 qrt. cherry tomatoes, 2 lb cucumbers, 1/2 lb. bell pepper

FALL
1 bag lettuce, 1 bunch kale, 1 head cabbage, 1 bunch carrots, 3 lbs. potatoes, 1 butternut squash, 2 pound sweet potatoes

• When will this begin and end?

Summer CSA for 2024 You will receive 18 weeks of vegetable, which are pre-paid at the beginning of the season, and are redeemable over 19  calendar weeks starting May 17th. You will collect your weekly share at your desired location once per week, with the option to skip 1 week when you need to, for example, if you are out of town. If you don’t skip any weeks, we are happy to offer a 19th add-on week at the end of the season for $35. The last possible pickup will be Saturday, September 21st.

• How much?

2024 summer veggie CSA: $630 (+tax) for the season.

CSA Agreement: By purchasing a share in the Honey Brook CSA program, I have accepted the terms of this membership agreement.   Members of the CSA will receive a weekly share of produce, varying in size depending on the time of season.  One aspect of CSA is that members support their farmer by sharing in the rewards (organic, exceptionally fresh vegetables, the bounty of a good season, etc.) and the risks of farming, including poor harvests due to unfavorable weather or pests, or the total loss of all crops due to a natural disaster such as flood, drought, tropical storm or hurricane.  CSA farmers purposely plan for such contingencies; the farmers use growing techniques that protect the harvest to minimize the risk and optimize the rewards. On the whole, members will get a wide variety of vegetables in plentiful amounts. I understand this principle and agree that there is no guarantee on the exact amount or type of produce I will receive in my share. By becoming a member, I agree to support the farm with timely payments. I commit to picking up my share(s) weekly and I understand that if I, or someone I designate, is unable to pick up my share(s), they cannot be saved. I understand that my contribution as a member is utilized as seed and spring start up funds for the farmers and therefore my CSA membership fee is nonrefundable.
