Community Harvest is Tait Farm Foods’ CSA (Community Supported Agricultural) program. A CSA is a member supported agricultural program where folks pay for a share of fresh, organic produce that is grown on the farm. Members support local farmers and in return get local, fresh, organic produce. We offer both Full Year Memberships (January – December) and Half Year Memberships (May-November). Members come to the farm weekly (June-November) and/or bi-weekly (December-May) to pick up their seasonal share of vegetables & fruits. We also offer the choice of coming to the North Atherton Farmers Market on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm, June – early November, to pick up your vegetables. This has an additional cost of $75.
A share is defined as enough produce to feed two veggie lovers, or a small family on a weekly basis
