CSA Membership

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between our farm and people interested in receiving the freshest certified organic produce available. Rather than simply purchasing food, our customers become “members” of our farm who receive a portion of the farm’s harvest each week during our main harvest season.  

 

Our CSA runs for 20 weeks, from May to September. Members are responsible for showing up at their chosen pick-up site to pick up your share of freshly harvested, organic vegetables. Members receive one box each week with enough produce to

feed 1-2 people for the week.

Common questions

What can i expect in a csa box each week?

Your weekly box will be a reflection of what we're harvesting each week. Each box has about 10 different varieties of veggies and herbs, with staple items (i.e. lettuces, herbs, garlic, kale, etc) repeating often. We occasionally partner with other local growers (who are also committed to "beyond organic" practices) to provide our CSA members with unique items we don't grow. Each week's box feeds 1-2 people, depending on how much you love vegetables (and cook at home).   

 

Why Would i pay so far in advance for my veggies?

It might seem strange to purchase "your share" of veggies months ahead of the time they're even ready for harvest. Doing so ensures you a spot on our CSA, which has a tendency to fill up before the season begins, but it also plays an important role in supporting your local farmers. We make all of the big purchases for our season in the Winter in order to be able to bring you fresh deliciousness in the late Spring and Summer. That's why CSA stands for "community supported agriculture." Huge government
subsidies don't support small organic farms — people

in our community do.

 

Are half or split boxes available?

While half CSAs (or split boxes) aren't available, we encourage those interested in a smaller weekly harvest to find a person to split your CSA with each week. A neighbor, friend, or family member might be interested in some uber-fresh local produce

as much as you are.

READY TO JOIN OUR 2019 cSA?

Please Read these CSA Membership Terms ...
CSA Box Weekly Pick Up
All CSA members are responsible for picking up their CSA share from their chosen pick-up site during the times listed. If you cannot pick up your CSA share for any reason, you may send someone to pick it up for you instead. Going on vacation? Have a friend or neighbor experience the delicious vitality of truly farm-fresh food!
 
left-behind boxes
If a CSA member fails to pick up their weekly share, please know that left-behind boxes of produce will be donated to the Northern Nevada Food Bank.
pick-up location change
If you need to change your pick-up location, you must inform Prema Farm (at info@premafarm.com) at least 3 days before your scheduled pick-up day. This notice is necessary for us to reorganize where your CSA share is stored and delivered.
refund policy
If you need to cancel your CSA membership, we require notice via email (to info@premafarm.com) at least 2 weeks before your stop date. Members will only receive a refund of the remaining weeks and not for any of the weeks prior to their stop date.
CSA means shared Risks/rewards
All CSA members share in the risks and rewards of the farm. At Prema Farm, we promise to do our best to provide you with a bountiful share each week, but the quantity of produce can vary from week-to-week due to extreme weather, insects, or other production factors despite our best efforts. In the unlikely event of a crop failure, your CSA share will be supplemented with other crops grown on the farm that are ready for harvest at that time.

OUR 2019 CSA IS FULL!

NEW for 2019!

Our CSA is going ZERO-WASTE !

We're excited to announce that the time has come for us to do away with the endless cardboard boxes and plastic bags that each season's CSA demands. It's been a journey to find durable boxes and produce bags that can withstand the weekly back and forth, but we feel confident about the CSA package set we've secured. 

The cost of this year's CSA includes a $50 DEPOSIT for the package set (two black totes and one produce bag set). If the package set is returned in working condition at the end of the season, that $50 deposit will be returned to the CSA member.
