CSA Shareholder Options
We provide three locations for picking up shares: Clagett Farm (Upper Marlboro), CBF's Philip Merrill Environmental Center (Annapolis), and Dupont Circle (D.C.). Installment payment plans are also available. Sign up here to be notified when shares open in 2021.
Regular shareholders can purchase a full, 26-week share or a 13-week share. With a 13-week share, you receive the same amount of vegetables per week, but you decide which weeks you want to pick up between May and November. All shareholders can choose from the pick-up locations listed above, make up missed weeks, and make changes without any prior notice. We’re flexible!
Reduced price shares are available to low-income households. A reduced-price share is the same size as the full-price 26-week share and includes the same "U-pick" privileges as full-price membership.
Anyone who qualifies for government assistance (WIC, EBT, disability) is welcome to purchase a CSA share at a reduced price. You are also eligible for a reduced-price share if your household income is equal to or below the amount indicated in the chart below (185% of the 2019 Federal Poverty Guideline). "Household" is defined as the persons living with you with whom you share your food budget.
If you are interested in purchasing a reduced-price share, please submit our request form during our open registration period and we will get back to you.

Instead of paying money for your vegetables, you can pay us with your time. In any given week between mid-May and mid-November, adults can work five hours or more in exchange for the same share of vegetables and u-pick privileges as our paying members. If you are interested in doing a workshare (or simply volunteering at the farm) please call 301-627-4662 to schedule a time. We prefer help from worksharers on Wednesdays 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. If you prefer to come Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, please contact us with your availability. To find us when you arrive, look for a note at the wash station or call 301-627-4662 to locate us in the fields.
Check our Volunteering page for more information.
Can I bring my children? While we welcome children to visit and experience the farm, if you bring children when you want to do a workshare please understand that time spent with the kids and not working does not count towards your share hours. Also, you will not receive extra shares for the children. Some families opt to bring two adults, which allows one to watch the children and one to do the workshare.
