Swift River Farm CSA Options

Market Bucks    $400 minimum Are you just too busy during the summer months to commit to a weekly produce box?  Do you want the freedom to choose your favorite veggies at your own pace? Well, we have a great CSA choice just for you.... MARKET BUCKS! You create your own credit account with us for any market we attend during the season. You get to forget your wallet and still get fresh, local produce, flowers or canned items from our booth at the farmers market. We ask for a minimum $400 commitment (just like a CSA share), but feel free to add any amount in addition. Market bucks MUST be spent (or will be donated back to the farm) by the end of the season.

Small Summer Share   $300 A full summer share, only smaller.  It is enough food to feed 1-2 adults each week, depending on your usual weekly veggie consumption, how much you cook at home, if you're a vegetarian and all of the other variables that need to be considered.  This is a great "Starter Share" if this is your first time trying CSA or if you like to shop at the Farmer's Market to supplement with more of your personal favorites.

Stock Your Cellar Share   $175 This is a one-time delivery in October, of about 75 lbs of fall storage crops, so be sure you have a good place to keep these items through the fall and winter. We typically include garlic, winter squash, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, beets and onions for winter storage as well as some possible late fall greens and other items from the hoop houses.

What is a CSA share?

Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program helps create a closer relationship between local farmers (like us) and local eaters (like you).  This type of farming is a subscription based method, where members purchase a "share" of the upcoming harvest before the actual season begins. This allows the farm to purchase seeds and supplies, make needed farm improvements, and plan ahead for production. 

We offer a wide variety of CSA shares each season, allowing you to choose the best fit for your family and household depending on your vegetable needs, cooking style, family size, and home-garden access. From small share options to fully belly bliss, a Swift River CSA is a great way to explore your palette and discover the many different seasonal tastes of central Idaho. 

However, if you are not an adventurous cook or eater, our traditional CSA program might not be for you.   Instead, we would highly recommend you explore our new "Market Bucks" Program, which is more of a build-your-own CSA, allowing you to choose your own veggies at your own pace.  Either way.... space is limited each season and our memberships sell out fast. 

Since we are now settling into our off-season, our CSA program won't begin again until next year.  However, if you want to be sure to reserve your spot in advance, fill out the form below and we will contact you in March of 2018.
