How does it work?
Customers sign up for a CSA Share at the beginning of the growing season and pay up front or on a payment plan. Sign-ups for these generally start in late winter or early spring. Food Roots will list information for partnering CSA farms to this webpage when that information is available from the farms.
The CSA shares are harvested on a weekly basis, providing customers with regular access to the freshest produce around. Farmers harvest whatever is in season, offering consumers a chance to try a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
In addition to bringing fresh produce to consumers, CSA Shares offer a commitment to farmers that provides them with income and steady customers, allowing them to offset some of their early-season costs and weather some of the risks inherent to farming.
Full-sized CSA Shares usually provide enough food for three to five people; most farms also offer half shares that feed one or two people, or other more flexible options. Details on participating farms can be found at the bottom of this page. Customers can choose to pick up their shares at our location in downtown Tillamook, or at another convenient pickup point determined by the farm!
SNAP/EBT payments for CSA Shares
We accept SNAP payments for CSA Shares on behalf of our partnering farms! In addition, we provide SNAP customers with Double Up Food Bucks to reduce the overall cost of the CSA share, further increasing the affordability of local food. There are flexible purchasing options so you don't have to commit to a full season, instead purchase a month to month option if that feels like a better option for you. Contact us to learn more.
Stay tuned for 2021 CSAs
