OUR PROGRAM

The Bayard Cutting Arboretum CSA is made up of members who pay a membership fee at the beginning of the season and then come to the farm on Wednesday or Friday to pick up their vegetables, herbs, and flowers. This extends from Late May/ Early June through October.

 

We offer a plethora of organic varieties of vegetables and culinary herbs and flowers as a pick your own option. Members may purchase eggs on a first come, first served basis from our flock of 150 egg-laying hens. Members are encouraged to participate in seeding, planting, field maintenance, and harvesting in order to fully connect to the farm, the land and to each other.

 

Part of the Bayard Cutting Arboretum CSA’s mission is to grow high quality, organic produce for its members using sustainable practices that protect the soil and water. We strive to maintain the growing field to the high standards of the Arboretum and to make the farm a welcoming place for the many people who visit each day. We seek to build community among farm members who are encouraged to participate in a wide range of farm activities, workshops, and events. Finally, our goal is to educate the public through site visits and newsletters. We offer an education program to middle school-aged children who participate in a wide variety of hands-on activities including planting and harvesting, learning about compost, and the difference between good and bad bugs in the garden.

 

 

MEMBERSHIP 2022

Members must pay for the cost of their farm share in full before the season begins and although working on the farm is not required, members are encouraged to volunteer time for the benefit of the farm! The number of members depends on many factors. The best way to become a member is to contact us directly so we can put you on our mailing lists. You will receive our newsletters and you will be invited to participate in any farm workshops and social events we are hosting. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, we are uncertain as to whether we will be hosting any social events this year. If we are already full, you will be placed on our waiting list. As soon as an opening becomes available, you will be notified. The farm share price for 2022 is $800.00 for a full share and $400.00 for a half share.
