CSA Membership Details

CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is based on a simple principle: connecting people to their local food source. When you join a CSA you are entering into a partnership that is dedicated to bringing fresh, organic produce directly from our fields to your table each week. Your membership helps to pay for seeds, water, equipment and labor in the early season when expenses are high and income is low. In return, the farm provides just picked seasonal produce each week beginning in June, for 20 weeks for our CSA members. CSA members make a commitment to support the farm through their annual membership. This commitment ensures the survival of local agriculture by sharing the risk and bounty of the farm. By joining you become an active part of the farm's success and community.

 

2020 Summer CSA Information

We are offering two CSA membership options this season; our Traditional CSA share and our CSA card.

Our Traditional 20 week Summer CSA will continue to offer 3 sizes, available for pick-up on Wednesdays at our farm in Boulder. Cure will continue to have extended pick-up hours of 11am-7pm on Wednesdays. Add-on shares of fruit, wine & cheese, Moxie bread, eggs, coffee and flowers will be available with the Traditional CSA (pick-up on Wednesdays at the farm).

One more big change this year is the ability to customize your Moxie Bread Co. share. You can choose bread, pastries, and Gluten-less bread individually. A new offering this year is Moxie's Gluten-Less Bread. While not celiac-friendly as it is baked in Moxie's bakery kitchen, all the ingredients are gluten-free.

We will continue to offer packing your share for Thursday-Sunday pick-up at the Farm Stand at the farm if you miss a Wednesday pick-up. Just be sure to email us so we can have your share packed and ready for you to pick-up.

New for 2020 we will be accepting the CSA Card at the Saturday Boulder Farmers Market, and at our Farm Stand. You will also be able to purchase any item that we sell at those locations with your CSA card. We will no longer be attending the Wednesday Boulder Farmers Market, or the Union Station Farmers Market in Denver.

How the CSA Card Share Works

Our CSA card option allows you to shop when you want, where you want, and to purchase what you need that week. Our goal in offering this option is to provide you with flexibility. So, if you travel often, have specific dietary needs or just want to supplement your own garden, this CSA card is perfect for you!

  • $500 (10% bonus is added to the card; there will be $550 on the card)
  • May be used to purchase any Cure Organic Farm product available at the Saturday Boulder Farmers Market, or the Farm Stand during normal business hours. You shop when it is convenient for you!
  • The balance can be used throughout the entire season, from when the Farm Stand opens on weekends in the spring, and through Thanksgiving. The balance must be used by Thanksgiving 2020, any unused balances will be donated.
  • Used up your balance before the end of the season? No problem, you can add additional money to your card in $100 increments, and maintain all of the same benefits

 

Pick-up Locations

Please choose your pick-up location for the CSA season 6/3/20-10/14/2020:

  • Wednesday 11am-7pm; Cure Organic Farm, 7416 Valmont Rd. Boulder, CO 80301
  • Saturday 8am-2pm; Boulder Farmer's Market 13th between Arapahoe Ave. and Canyon Ave.

Traditional CSA shares picked up at Cure Organic Farm store are distributed market style. What your share receives each week will be written on a large chalk board at pick-up. Members will choose and pack their own vegetables, fruit and flowers. Please bring your own bags. We will have bags available if you need them as well.

CSA Card shares picked up at Cure Organic Farm during farm stand hours, or at the Boulder Farmers Market will use a CSA Card to shop the market and choose their own share.

10% bonus is added; $550 value will be on the CSA card.

CSA card members may shop all of Cure Organic Farm's products available at the Saturday Boulder Farmers Market and our Farm Stand at the farm during regular business hours.
*CSA card balance must be used by Thanksgiving 2020.

If you, your business, school or group would like to help pay for a subscription for one of these households, please indicate this on the Registration Form. If you feel like you would qualify for Share the Bounty, please contact us.
