About CSA Membership

your best way to support the farm

The purchase of Vibrant Farm CSA ("Community Supported Agriculture") Membership Balance is a convenient way to access fresh vegetables offered every week grown by Meghan, Curtis, and the talented Vibrant Farm crew. It is also the best way to support the farm.

Our 2021 CSA Members were a vital key to our farm’s success in our first season growing in Bantam, CT. This encouraging group of brave early adopters proved their commitment to local food resilience by purchasing their share of the harvest in advance of the season. As a startup and community-supported farm, this early commitment is a necessary component to our seasonal cash flow.

What’s New for 2022

There are no changes to how you purchase, receive, and use CSA Balance,
but here's what's new:
  • Minimum CSA Balance purchase is $200
  • While offered year-round, a flat-rate discount will be offered the first 3 weeks of each season - spring, summer, fall, winter
  • Next Discount Window June 1-21

        See CSA Pricing 

        Here’s How It Works

        Our CSA is a declining balance program that works like a gift card.

        CSA Balance can be redeemed for produce online or in person.

        We also offer curated “boxes” similar to the classic CSA model.

        Check our Homepage for current pickup, markets, and pop-up schedule.

        How is this the best way to support the farm?

        • Commitment - Member Balance purchase confirms your commitment to the harvest ahead! 
        • Financial Alignment - Purchasing your produce in advance better aligns with our farm’s necessary purchase of seed, fertilizer, supplies, and labor to grow the season ahead’s produce

        • You may find our products on the shelves of many fine grocers & farm stands around Litchfield County. However we do not currently offer purchasing or pickups using Member Balance at these locations.
