2015 Summer Season Sign-Ups Will Open Next Week!

The FFS Core group has been hard at work planning the 2015 summer season. Sign ups will be ready soon!  Last year’s summer and winter members, please look out for the sign up link in your inboxes next week. You will have a 3-day first dibs sign up period, and then the sign up form goes live.

We are still working out some details on new extra shares to be offered this season. But, all the basic season and share info (including pricing) is available here and below: FFS 2015 summer season info.

Some new features for the 2015 season:
Expanded Sliding Scale: Our CSA is able to offer a significant number of discounted vegetable shares for low-income households because our level 3 & 4 members pay a premium above the farmer’s price proportionate to their income and household size. This year we are adding a new premium-paying price level at the high end of our scale. The new level 5 will enable the CSA to provide a greater number of discounted shares than in the past. To learn more, see the charts below.
Sliding Scale for Fruit: We are very excited to be able to offer a two-tiered price scale for fruit this summer season! Extending the sliding scale to fruit has been a long-time goal for our CSA.
Early-Bird Discounts: Level 3, 4, and 5 members who sign up and pay half their share in the first 2 weeks of our membership drive will get a 3% refund off their veggie share price.

E-payments: We are trying person-to-person electronic payments this year. You can learn more about this option at Epayment Info_2015.

Finally, the 2015 season brings us many exciting extra share offerings! Details to be revealed soon. In the meantime, you can check out our farmer info here.

Check back with us soon!
