Our 2020 Winter CSA is Sold Out. Thank you for your support. If you’re interested in signing up for the waitlist, please email melissa@sunlovefarm.com

How does it work?

  • The Winter CSA is 4 Weeks:
    • November 4
    • November 18
    • December 2
    • December 16
  • You have the option of delivery (available in Milwaukie, Gladstone, Jennings Lodge, Oak Grove, Oregon city, Sellwood, Clackamas, and Lents) or pickup at our farm in Oregon City, conveniently located less than 10 minutes off I-205.
  • CSA is a great option for people who love to cook creatively using a wide variety of produce.
  • Other Benefits:
    • Newsletters with farm updates and what’s available.
    • Access to Cook With What You Have’s CSA Recipe Collection to provide recipes for your weekly produce. You will have access to 900+ recipes, templates, storage and preserving tips, pantry stocking suggestions and vegetable prep videos, organized by vegetable and created using CSA Produce. We are hoping that this great resource will make it easier to find delicious and creative uses for your share!
    • Opportunities for adding on to CSA orders around the holidays.
    • SNAP recipients can use their benefits to pay for a CSA share.
    • Options for paying for the full share at one time or paying on a subscription basis.

What do you get?

Here is an example of what each share might include throughout the season:

Sample November Share

  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes
  • 1 bunch chard
  • 1 bunch collards
  • 1 giant kohrabi
  • 1 savoy cabbage
  • 2 lbs beets
  • 2 lbs carrots
  • 3-5 lbs winter squash
  • 2 lbs onions
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 head endive
  • 2 ct fennel

Sample December Share

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 head green cabbage
  • 2 lbs carrots
  • 2 lbs beets
  • 3 lbs potatoes
  • 2 lbs onions
  • 2 ct leeks
  • 3-5 lbs winter squash
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 head radicchio
  • 1 head escarole
  • ½ lb arugula

What does it cost?

Wednesday afternoon farm pick up – $200 for 4 weeks ($50/share)

Wednesday delivery – $220 for 4 weeks ($55/share)

You have the option of paying for the CSA with recurring payments. Basically you choose the recurring payment option in the shop and you will be charged on the weeks you receive your share. This is a great option for those who do not want to pay the whole cost of the CSA in one chunk.

Other helpful information

  • Produce will be delivered to your doorstep or picked up at our farm
  • FYI there will almost certainly be more opportunities for home delivery and farm pick up of winter vegetables during the remainder of the winter months, but we are not including it as part of the CSA, just to make sure we have enough food for each CSA share to be bountiful and diverse.
  • We are happy to be able to accept SNAP benefits for paying for our CSA shares! Please make note that you would like to use SNAP when you sign up! It’s more important than ever to find ways to make healthy food accessible for all during these unpredictable times.
  • Does this model not offer enough flexibility for you in terms of what kind and how much produce you get? Check out our Market Share program as a more flexible option.

A note from Farmer Melissa about why CSA matters- CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a huge support for farmers like me that make a living on vegetables, which are only in bounty for about 6-8 months of the year. When you sign up for a summer CSA during the winter or early spring, you are putting capital into the actual growing of the vegetables that will be ready later in the year. Even though most of the food is not ready to harvest in early spring, from February-May, I invest significant money into growing the food- buying seeds, potting soil, soil amendments, paying for labor and investing in infrastructure. Without the support of CSA members, I would have to go into debt each spring in order to make the necessary investments to grow summer and fall veggies. Thank you so much for considering making this investment in small-scale sustainable agriculture! It makes all the difference in keeping the farm alive and thriving.
