UPDATE ABOUT 2015 CSA SEASON:

BOCA Farm's 2015 program is going to be a bit different from years past:
We are going to take a break from the weekly CSA pickup program- give our field a rest, focus on reestablishing our relationships with chefs, and expand and broaden the work with our educational partners. On a slightly smaller scale, we're going to grow the many items that we've ALL learned particularly thrive at our beautiful site, and choose new and experimental varieties to couple with our tried-and-true varietals. 
Throughout the season, we'll be hosting $20 POP-UPs!! Bring $20, leave with a basket full of fresh veggies, herbs and flowers.

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for "community supported agriculture." For a small farm like BOCA, community involvement is key to our success each season as well as the sustainability of our business.

For our version of the CSA model, individuals and families can become "shareholders" in our farm by committing to 20 weeks of delicious produce at the beginning of the season.

Starting in June, shareholders will visit the farm each week and fill a box with delicious, seasonal produce. They'll get to see the farm as it evolves throughout the season, get to know their farmers, and enjoy cooking with exactly what's seasonal at that moment.

An important component of our CSA is community involvement. We encourage our shareholders to attend scheduled work days, potlucks, and every week our shareholders get to harvest a few of their own items while they enjoy the beauty of the farm.

 

When do I pick up my box?

Our CSA runs for 20 weeks, from June to October.

Pick up time is Tuesday from 3:30 to 6:00, at BOCA Farm, located just south of Imola in southwest Napa.

Shareholders get to a have a hands-on experience at the farm, including picking a few items themselves and touring the farm each week.

 

How much does it cost?

Small Box (1-2 People): $450/season

Large Box (4-5 People): $525/season

 

Additional items to pick up at the farm on Tuesdays:

Egg Share from Terramaso Ranch in Napa: $60/10 weeks, $120 for the season

(each egg share is one dozen eggs)

 

Eight-Week Fruit Share from Frog's Leap in Rutherford (Limited):  $40/8 weeks

(about 2lbs of delicious tree fruit throughout the summer)

 

Checks can be made out to:

BOCA Farm

PO Box 5449

NAPA, CA 94581

 

Do I have to pay all at once?

Shareholders can break their payment up into three payments, which must be recieved in full by June.

 

What kinds of items will be in my box?

A wide array of deliciousness, including (but not limited to):

Spring:

Lettuces, Kale, Chard, Cabbage, Radishes, Carrots, Beets, Mustard Greens

Pick your own herbs, flowers, and peas


Summer:

Peppers, Tomatoes, Eggplant, Summer Squash, Lettuces, Carrots, Beets, Cucumbers,  Melons

Pick your own cherry tomatoes, flowers, herbs, beans and tomatillos


Fall:

Apples, Winter Squash, Beets, Lettuces, Kale, Chard, Cauliflower, Broccoli

Pick your own cherry tomatoes, flowers, herbs, and carving pumpkins

What if I can't pick up my box?

No problem. Just let us know ahead of time. Or, have a friend or neighbor pick up your box for you while you're gone. Share the bounty!

 

How much time does it take to collect my box?

Generally it takes folks about 20 minutes to pack their box and harvest the day's offerings from the field. Some people are faster, while others take their time and enjoy the farm for a long time. We're here to help you too!

 

Will these veggies cover all my produce needs for a whole week?

It depends on YOU! We have had some shareholders who couldn't use the entire box in a week, and others who supplemented by visiting the farmer's market. We always make sure that the retail value of what you're getting is at least the same as the share price/week, though generally the value of the box is greater than what you've paid up front.
