Each week you will receive roughly $30 worth of hand-picked produce, enough for 1-2 people. These items vary by season, and some weeks you'll receive more than others. While we can't predict exactly what you'll get each week, we do promise that everything you receive will be fresh, ripe, and delicious!
Over the course of our 20 week CSA, you can expect to see:
Arugula, Asian Greens (Mizuna, Baby Pac Choy & Tat Soi), Asparagus, Beans, Beets, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Chard, Cucumber, Eggplant, Fennel, French Shallots, Garlic, Ginger, Herbs, Hot Peppers, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce (Romaine & Leaf), Melons, Okra, Onions, Potatoes, Radish, Radicchio, Rhubarb, Salad Mix, Spinach, Strawberries, Summer Squash, Sweet Peppers, Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes, Turnips, Winter Squash.
We also offer an add-on egg share of one dozen eggs per week for $110.
Additional add-on items, such as chicken, will also periodically be available. We will announce these opportunities in the weekly newsletter.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) provides a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. When you purchase one of our CSA memberships, you support our farm through the risks and rewards of small-scale all natural farming. In return, you share in our harvest with a weekly share of the best our farm has to offer. You'll also receive a weekly newsletter filled with stories from the farm, delicious recipes, and tips and tricks for making the most of your share.
Our 2017 CSA costs $600 (additional fees apply for egg shares, and optional add-on items).
To reserve your 2017 share, we must receive a minimum $200 deposit by February 28, 2017.
The remaining balance must be paid in full by April 20, 2017.
Pay by Check:
Make checks payable to: Rainbow Hill Farm LLC
Mail check to: 1140 Cattail Run Rd, Charles Town, WV, 25414.
The 2017 season begins May 13 and ends October 7. You will receive 20 weeks of produce within the span of 22 weeks. We take two breaks during the season: the weeks of July 4th and Labor Day. These breaks coincide with times when many CSA members are traveling and thus unable to use their shares. This also gives everyone on the farm a moment to catch our breath: farming is hard work, and occasional breaks are key for long term sustainability.
2 Volunteer Shares available each week:

How does this work? All we ask is that you volunteer for 4 hrs one day and we give you a bag filled with freshly picked vegetables of your choice.
You can pick up your share on farm or at one of several local farmer's markets, or have it delivered conveniently to your home or office for a small fee.
