2021 CSA

SPRING, SUMMER, FALL & WINTER

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture is a symbiotic relationship, based on trust and faith, between farmer and community. It is important to remember that us, the farmers, rely on the income of the CSA to operate our farm. We plan, seed, and tend to crops many months before they arrive in your share. We work diligently to follow through with attention to detail, quality of vegetables, and diversity of the harvest for these prepaid shares. As a member you receive top priority when crops become harvestable.

Where can I pick up my CSA? 

We offer three pick up locations for all of our share seasons: 

Tuesdays: Bear Roots Farm in Barre 4-6PM

Wednesdays: Barr Hill in Montpelier 4-6PM

Friday & Saturday: Roots Market in Middlesex 10AM-6PM

How do I sign up? 

If you'd like to set up a payment plan or sign up via check please email us! csa@bearrootsfarm.com
