Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Luna Bleu Farm is one of the oldest CSA farms in Vermont. We were drawn to this business model back in the late 80’s because it forges a unique bond between farmers and the local community. In a CSA, farmers and shareholders share in both the risks and the bounty of the season. By joining a CSA, you are choosing to support local agriculture and invest in the local economy.
Harvest Season Vegetable Share
20 pickups, weekly, June–October
Harvest Season shareholders enjoy a weekly share of fresh vegetables during the main growing season.
The mainstays in your shares will be the familiar lettuces, tomatoes, cukes, carrots, potatoes, squash, melons, and other favorites. We also like to introduce people to some less common crops like fennel, celeriac, garlic scapes, bok choy, kohlrabi, and to new varieties of familiar veggies.
Harvest Season Shares are available in small, medium, and large. See below for more information on sizing, pricing, and pickups.
Winter Season Vegetable Share
7 pickups, November–April
$520–$785 (see price chart) (LINK)
Winter Season shareholders will enjoy high quality storage vegetables and delicious greens throughout the winter and into the spring.
Winter-stored crops include carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, winter squash, cabbage, beets, turnips, and sweet potatoes. We also include greens from our solar-heated greenhouses: spinach with every winter share and other greens most months. Our members just love our winter greens…it’s like magic!

Pickup Times & Location:
All shares are available for pickup at our farm in South Royalton on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons after 3pm.
Vegetable Share Pricing:
We strive to make our organic produce accessible to our neighbors of all income levels and still pay us, the farmers, and our employees a living wage… a work in progress. To this end, we have this fancy-dancy chart with all these different prices.
• The Basic Price is what most people choose, and most closely reflects that balance we try to achieve between a thriving farm business and community access to local food. You will typically save 15-20% on our regular retail prices.
• The Sustaining Price helps us more easily attain that thriving point and makes it easier to offer discounted shares.
• The Discounted Price is intended for households that do not qualify for the NOFA Farm Share, but would have trouble paying the Basic price.
• NOFA Farm Share is a lower priced share for income eligible households. For us this means shares are half price or get a up to a $300 discount, depending on the total BASIC price. You may also donate to the farm share program and help your neighbors enjoy Luna Bleu farm fresh vegetables.
