The RVA Full Season Fruitful Summer CSA includes 20 delivery weeks. It begins between mid-April and mid-May and continues into September. With the current Pre-Season Discount (ends April 10), a Full Share costs $28.50 per week (with registration for the 20-week season of $570), and a Half Share costs $15 per week (with registration for the 20-week season of $300) for registrations received by April 10.

You’ll have the option to pay by check/cash or by credit card via PayPal. It won’t take more than five minutes to complete.

RVA Vacations and Make-Ups

We pride ourselves on being as flexible and accommodating as possible, because we know just how hectic life can be. We also understand that even people who travel love great fruit! With just a little bit of planning and communication to us, we can make just about anything work, and we will to help ensure that you receive all your fruit each season!

  • A Make-Up Week at the end of the season: To add flexibility, we add a “Week 21/Make-up Week” at the end of the season and you can defer a share to that week, or even get a double share if needed.
  • Different Day: You may pick up on a different day of the week, if you let us know in advance.
  • Double Shares: In addition to the Make-up Week (Week 21) at the end of the season, you can elect to receive an additional share (a.k.a. a double share) on any other delivery week(s) of the CSA season. If you are a Half Share member and you are slated for an additional share as a make-up, you will receive that week’s Full Share.
  • Have A Backup Plan:  Plan ahead of time to have a friend or two on call pick up for you in a pinch. I’m sure they’ll only eat a few…
  • Donate Your Share to the family of one of our Young Workers, or other deserving area family. We will make it happen!

Important Note:  All options require providing Agriberry Farm with notice BEFORE YOUR PICKUP! If you are in transit when trouble arises, PLEASE REACH OUT FOR HELP!

RVA CSA Pickup Locations

Some CSA pickup locations are part of full-scale Farmers Markets, and some are “Pop-Ups,” meaning that we set up a solo market stand for the pickup, with additional farm items available for sale to all. Some locations are “Pick-Up Only,” meaning there is nothing extra available for sale, unless it has been pre-ordered.

Additional pickup sites and locations are always being considered.  Have one you’d like to recommend? Please let us know! Check back frequently for updates, but don’t wait too long and let the Pre-Registration Discount expire!

After you’ve chosen your preferred pickup location, click the button below to sign up for the Fruitful Summer CSA from Agriberry Farm.
