'Community Supported Agriculture - Weekly Veg Bag Scheme'

Membership

WE ARE NOW SIGNING NEW MEMBERS FOR 2014 SEASON!

Early bird prices are available for those signing up before March 31st. After this date membership fees are as stated below. These early payments are a great way to support the farm throughout the spring season when all the hard work is to be done!

Become a member

As a community supported agriculture scheme, members sign up annually for the full season (veg supplied from June to October). Rather than paying for individual items of veg, members sign up to receive a regular supply (weekly or fortnightly options) of veggies. Membership fees are paid in the spring and play a vital role in supporting the farm financially through the year. This money is used directly to buy seed, equipment and cover the running costs of the farm for the season ahead. The veg harvest is then shared out between members through summer and Autumn. The best thing is, the better the weather, the more veggies there are to share around!  For example, Membership fees averages out over the predicted harvest period as €15 per week, in 2013 members regularly received their share of veg to the value of over €20 per week!

Your veggies can be collected in two ways. You can sign up for a pre-packed bag of veg to be collected from An Grainán health store or you can pack your own veg from ‘the green stall’ at the farm, this leaves Aimi more time to get on with the important stuff….growing the veg! Farm collection is cheaper AND members are welcome to have a look round the farm on collection days.

What’s in a bag?
