Sign Up for a CSA
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for consumers and farmers to share the risks and benefits of food production in a given growing season. By purchasing a CSA share before the growing season starts, you are supporting a local farmer in advance in exchange for receiving a weekly share of the harvest all season long.
CSA programs allow consumers to enjoy eating fresh food grown right in their community while learning what it means to eat seasonally. CSAs are the best possible way to eat the most nutrient dense organically grown food.
At Easy Bee Farm, loving workers harvest the CSA shares in exchange for produce. Harvest occurs the same morning as pickup – we believe in fresh!
Produce Per Season
As a CSA member, you will learn about what crops are available in Moab during different times of the year. Timing and availability will vary each year based on the weather and agricultural variables.

Can’t make it one week? Consider having a friend pickup your share for you. Please let us know ahead of time if this is the case.
Do You Offer Delivery for CSA Shares?
Easy Bee Farm offers a limited number of delivered shares each year. Delivery is an additional $5 per week, adding to $110 for the season for full shares and $55 for half shares. Please note, if you are interested in delivery, we will provide the service on a first-come, first-served basis. If you receive one of the delivery shares, we will contact you to work out a procedure for drop-off.
What Produce Will I Receive Weekly?
Vegetables vary throughout each season. See below for a week by week description of share contents from previous seasons.
How Much Food Comes in a Weekly Share?
A full share will feed a couple or small family and is on average $25 worth of produce each week. Some weeks may be worth much more during peak harvest times while others may not quite reach that mark. For example, there is usually a lull between Spring and Summer crops where you may not receive as much produce, but in August you will most likely receive an excess.
Most members find that it is a good amount of food for a couple or small family. Individuals who like to cook a lot can handle a share, but it can be a lot of produce for one person.
We also offer a biweekly share (every other week). This option is a great choice for one person or for folks who don’t cook the majority of their meals at home. Our produce keeps for 2+ weeks in the fridge.
How Do I Use Your Online Store?
Our online store, through a platform called Barn2Door, works like any other online store. You can place your order through the store’s website and we are immediately notified of your purchase. Each item will have pickup or delivery options. As always, reach out to us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org

If you are having someone else pick up your share, you are responsible for sharing the pickup procedure document and directions.
Shares that are not picked up by 7:00 p.m. on the evening of pickup will be donated to the food bank or otherwise distributed.
If you signed up for a delivery share, it is required to provide access to a refrigerator or cooler in the event you will not be home during the confirmed drop off day. Your share will not be left without access to one of these things.
We do not offer refunds for CSA memberships. Transfer of CSA memberships may be granted but are not guaranteed.
