Sign up for the 2021 UCSC Farm & Garden CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program and receive a weekly box of organic produce while supporting our mission to advance agroecology and equitable food systems through education, research, extension and public service.

This year we will be offering a 23-week CSA season, from June 8 through November 19. CSA members can choose to pick up produce on either Tuesdays or Fridays, from noon to 6pm at the Cowell Ranch Hay Barn on the UC Santa Cruz campus. Weekly shares include an abundance and diversity of produce, with the goal of providing a balanced box each week including sweet berries, cutting and bunching greens, root crops, summer fruiting crops (tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant), alliums and more! 

This year we are excited to offer a free choice share, which gives members the opportunity pick out $25 worth of fruit and vegetables from our Farm Stand each week. For those who prefer the more traditional pre-packed produce box, farmer's choice shares are also available for an additional $2 per week. CSA members will also be able to purchase additional produce from the Farm Stand at a special 10% discount.

The CSA full season rate is $550 for free choice shares (includes one free share as a thank you for your ongoing support) or $594 for farmer's choice shares, with optional payment plans and limited-income shares available. Sign up for your share today!

Your support of the UCSC Farm's CSA program helps us to steward this piece of land and train the next generation of farmers, gardeners, and food system activists through the education programs of the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS).
