FARM SHARE (CSA) 

Farm Share Sign-ups for 2020 are now open! Sign up at Farmigo to choose your pickup time and location and pay your deposit online. 

Previously known as “CSA” (Community Supported Agriculture), our new “Farm Share” program allows customers to invest in our farm and farmers by paying  upfront or in monthly installments for several weeks of vegetables throughout the season. This gives the customer a chance to deepen their engagement with our program and learn about the seasonality of farming in Kansas City, while giving the farmers an expanded and reliable market for their produce.

This year, we are offering three distinct seasons:

  • Spring Greens Vegetable Share – April 9-May 16 – $16/week (+ tax)
  • Early Summer Vegetable Share – May 20-July 30  – $23/week (+ tax)
  • Late Summer Vegetable Share – Aug. 12-Oct. 22 – $23/week (+ tax)
      •  Late Summer Flower Share (optional) – bi-weekly, Aug. 9-Oct. 24
        $11/week (+ tax)

Buy both summer seasons and get one week free! Additionally, we are excited to open our online Farm Store where customers with an account can purchase seasonal “Add-On” items to their weekly shares.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team has decided that all vegetable shares will be pre-packaged and available for curbside pick-up at each of our public locations. Customers are encouraged not to get out of their car, while staff deliver their produce through their car windows or trunks. You can find us at each public location with a New Roots sign and outdoor tent/table. Staff will be masked and gloved while handling produce. For more information about our safety and procedures, please refer to the “COVID-19” tab on our webpage.

The produce for our Farm Share is aggregated from multiple farmers in the training program. By pooling produce from the 16 farmers growing at Juniper Gardens Training Farm, we can address issues of inconsistent produce quality, communication difficulties due to language barriers, irregular pick up times, and crop failure.
