WHY JOIN OUR CSA? 
CSA is a mutually beneficial relationship between us. By making an investment in our farm with a CSA share, you become a seasonal farm member who shares the rewards and risks of the harvest season with us, your farmers. This makes you a co-producer. Your investment allows us to afford annual start-up costs, to pay ourselves fair wages, and to share the risks of growing food. In return, we provide you and your family with fresh, healthy, local vegetables, fruits and eggs. Our food not only tastes better and keeps longer, it also helps us all nourish local agriculture, economy and environment.  Taste the difference!
Members Receive:
  • About two grocery bags of 7-10 seasonal sustainably grown vegetables and herbs (more for large shares)
  • A weekly email with produce information, cooking and storage tips, recipes and segments about life on and off the farm. 
  • Access to an online recipe sharing site. 

Members Also Enjoy: 
  • Convenient pick up locations and times throughout the week. 
  • Access to our farm for volunteering, exploring and relaxing. 
  • Invitations to on-farm events, such as our annual OktoberFEAST and Spring planting parties. 
  • Making new friends who share your interest in good food and good farming.     
HOW IT WORKS

Join In Good Heart’s CSA by purchasing a share at the beginning of the season. You then visit the weekly pickup site to pack your own vegetables from the harvest table. We will post a guide at the stand explaining what each share contains that week. You will bring your own bags and pick out the produce for yourself “market-style”. The Spring CSA harvest season runs for 16 weeks from April through July.

  
Pickup Sites & Times: We have three weekly CSA pickup sites.

  •  Raleigh pickup is Tuesday evenings from 4:30pm to 6;30pm at the Five Points CSA site, 1911 Bernard St., Raleigh 27608.
