Farm shares offer a way for consumers to buy produce directly from local farmers.
Also known as Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), this model provides customers with weekly boxes of fresh, seasonal produce, while supporting farmers with income early in their growing season.
How does it work?
Customers sign up for a farm share at the beginning of the growing season and pay up front or on a payment plan. This share is then 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, farm shares offer a commitment to farmers that provides them with income and steady clientele, allowing them to offset some of their early-season costs and weather some of the risks inherent to farming.
Farm shares usually provide enough food for three to five people; some farms also offer half shares that feed one or two people, or other more flexible options. Customers can choose to pick up their shares at our location in downtown Tillamook, or at another convenient pickup point. Farm share size and delivery day varies depending on the farm; you can find out more about the farms we work with below.
Farm shares are currently at capacity; please contact us to find out about possible late-season opportunities, or to sign up for next year.
SNAP benefits for farm shares
We are now able to accept SNAP benefits for farm shares at our partnering farms! Customers with SNAP benefits who sign up for a farm share can use their EBT cards to make payments when they pick up their produce.
