Organic Fruit CSA
A box of mixed organic fruit delivered to your local hub each week for 22 weeks. Starting 30-Nov-19 and finishing 29-Apr-20
The weight of the box may vary (mostly in the early/late parts of the season) but will approximate 3kg. The included value should exceed $20/week. These figures are a guide, not a guarantee – please see our FAQ for more info about ‘risk sharing’.
This share is suitable for small families, couples, or individuals who like to preserve fruit. For those individuals who don’t cook or preserve fruit, you might want to think about sharing with a friend or neighbour! You can post on our fb page if you’d like to find a friend to share with.
‘Name your price’
Examples of those who might choose to pay below the suggested price:

By purchasing this share of organic fruit you are becoming a CSA member (hooray!), and therefore are agreeing to our ‘members’ agreement‘.
Please get in touch if you’d like to work out a payment plan or pay with a labour contribution to the farm (or other moneyless exchange).
Why is the price higher than last year?
This year I am extending the CSA season by four weeks. This means members will receive more fruit deliveries and will have access to our late variety apples (of which last year there was none). Further, I have increased the price slightly to better reflect the value of the CSA Share and to help cover increased costs for this season.
