Agriberry Farm’s Annapolis-Area CSA
Agriberry Farm’s CSA membership costs $600 for the 20-week season, which can be pro-rated ($30/week) once the season has begun. The balance must be paid in full before the first pick-up of the season. CSA members pre-purchase a weekly share of our harvest. We do our best to provide you with the finest fruit available, but please remember that the forces of nature can be unpredictable, and our members share in that risk. You’ll also find Agriberry each Sunday at the Annapolis FRESHFARM Market from 8:30-Noon at City Dock in downtown Annapolis! It’s not a CSA pickup site, but we will have lots of beautiful berries for sale.
2014 CSA Start Date: Wednesday, May 7!

You will need to bring a check for the full amount to your pickup location at the time of your first pickup. If space is available, you can still join after the CSA has started. Please email me for more information.
Sister Susan Brings Agriberry to Annapolis.
Susan Frackelton Noyce, sister of Anne Frackelton Geyer (Agriberry’s founder), began Agriberry Farm’s Annapolis CSA in 2011. Susan has helped the Geyers with markets and on their farm for more than a decade, so sharing the family passion for farming and healthy eating with her neighbors in Eastport and Annapolis was a natural step. Susan’s connection is even stronger because she also works as a personal trainer at the Annapolis Athletic Club, where she is committed to fostering an active lifestyle for all ages. She understands the importance of nutrition, and its effect on overall well being, and she believes berries are among the very best super foods for all ages.
Agriberry Annapolis CSA Fast Facts
New members can join during the season (April-September) as space permits, and fees can be pro-rated ($30/week).
CSA members select a single weekly pickup location and time for the season; sites are listed below.
Members receive an e-mail each week during the season. E-mails include news and photos from the farm, updates on crop conditions, and details as to what will be in that week’s share.
A weekly share typically includes six “units” of fruit, often four units (pints, half-pints or quarts) of berries, and an additional two units of other fruits (or early spring veggies) to add variety (a minimum of 12 to 18 half-cup servings in each share).
Beautiful Berries Are Our Specialty
You may split your membership with another individual or family. We ask that you designate a “primary” member’s last name for our records, because our site lists are alphabetized by last name. The details of how your spit your share are up to you, and let us know how we can help.
Vacations and Missed Shares
During the season, you can take a week of vacation from the program. Just e-mail Susan two weeks before whether you plan to
Receive a double share the week before you leave,
Receive a double share the week after you return, or
Have a friend or family member pick up for you.
If you anticipate a conflict regarding a specific pickup date/time, please e-mail Susan at least two days before your pickup date, so we can try to help you make other arrangements. While we are glad to accommodate you in any manner we can, keep in mind that such special requests make things a bit more complicated, so we ask that you keep such requests to a minimum.
If your schedule changes or you find that your selected site just isn’t working for you, we will happily switch you. While we will do our best to help with last minute emergencies, cash refunds will not be offered for missed pickups, and unclaimed shares will be donated. We recommend that you keep the cell phone number of your site manage handy, just in case.
