2015 CSA Shares (Shares available now)

What is my share of the harvest?

The weekly harvest share includes an assortment of at least 5-6 different items in each share.

The share sizes and share variety will vary throughout the season due to growing conditions and the weather.

A full share is designed for a couple who eats fresh produce daily, or a larger family who incorporates vegetables into their diet several days a week.  It will be about twice the size of the small share.  A small share is designed for a couple, a couple with young children, or a family that is just beginning to incorporate fresh vegetables into their daily diet.  Below are some specific amounts that will be included in the small share when these items are in full season:

  1. •Tomatoes, 2 pounds
  2. •Beans, 1 pound
  3. •Greens, 1 bunch
  4. •Potatoes, 1 quart (about 2 pounds)
  5. •Lettuce, 1 head
  6. •Cucumber, 1
  7. •Squash & Zucchini, 2 each
  8. •Eggplant, 1
  9. •Cabbage, 1 small head
  10. •Beets, 4 roots and greens
  11. •Onions, 2
  12. •Winter squash, 1  (pumpkin, Hubbard, Red-Kuri)
  13. •Herbs, small bouquets of various herbs
  14. •Sweet Peppers, 2
  15. •Hot peppers, 2-3

Our previous members can tell you, each share consists of a very nice variety of produce not just a large amount of one or two items.

  1. What do the small shares cost? I’m very interested in what you have to offer. Also, I’m a culinary instructor and am always looking for places to take my students to learn about dirt to plate farming. Do you offer tours during the week?

      Thank you for contacting “3 Acre Farm”! The small shares are $200.00 for 12 shares. Our season has started but we do have a few openings so please send in your subscription form and we will get you started.
      In regards to your students, we love to have students! Contact us and we can make arrangements for a tour.

      Thank you,

  2. Hi Janelle,
    I just heard about CSA programs today on the radio. I looked up a local business and found you! Are there shares still available for this season? Also, anyway to test it out without committing to $200 for three months for a small share? Does or can it be based on a couple weeks at a time to try it out? I really want to get myself and my family eating healthier and eating more fresh vegetables but want to see if I can make this program work without spending the full $200. Im new to this! Thanks!

    • Jessica,
      Thank you for contacting us at “3 Acre Farm”. Of course you can test out the CSA shares, the minimum is 4 weeks. The 4 weeks will give you a good idea of how you will be able to manage and explore the new produce. We will have new memberships opening in spring of 2015. Just send in the subscription form and note that you want to try 4 weeks only. We also sell at the Turlock Farmers Market each Friday, come visit us there from 8am to 1pm.
      We are looking forward to meeting you. We also encourage you to make an appointment to visit us at the farm so you can see where your produce is growing and who is growing it.
      Thank you,
