Fresh Strawberries

About the Annapolis Summer Fruit CSA

Agriberry Annapolis offers a farm share membership program featuring weekly boxes of fresh, locally gown fruit from Agriberry Farm and other family-owned and operated farms in the region.

The Summer Fruit CSA program directly supports the farm’s mission to provide agriculture training and meaningful employment in the community and freshly harvested, field-ripened berries and other fruit directly to consumers. This is a type of “community supported agriculture” program or “CSA.” The shares are pre-made and the items are determined based on harvest availability.

  • Pickups are every Wednesday for 16 weeks!
  • Share pickups will begin on Wednesday, May 29, 2024.

Farm Share Costs

Members purchase a full season share of the upcoming 2024 harvest. Shares are delivered weekly on Wednesdays to the pickup location of your choice (see list).  The 2024 season is 16 weeks long, starting on May 29 through Wednesday, September 11.
 
A share consists of 6 “units” of produce and the fruit included will vary depending on what is being harvested that week. The size of the “units” will vary depending on the type of item, and a unit may be a pound, 1/2 pint, quart or a specific number of fruits.  Typically a share will provide 12-18 half-cup servings.
 
Registration opens on February 14 and the share price is $530 for the 16-week season. minimum deposit of $100 is required to join, and ALL BALANCES must be paid by check by the first pickup of the season.
 
When the CSA is full, we will create a waiting list. If you join after share deliveries have begun, fees are pro-rated based on the remaining number of weeks.

Annapolis Summer Farm Share members receive emails at the beginning of each delivery week. These emails include details about that week’s share and tips to help ensure you enjoy your fruit to the fullest. The emails also provide updates from the fields, member specials, and more.

A-Town Vacations and Make-Ups

We try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible, because we know just how hectic life can be, and we want you to receive all your fruit each season! With a little planning and communication, we can make things work.

  • Double Shares: If you want to skip a delivery, you can elect to receive a make up as an extra share (a.k.a. a double share) on another delivery week during the CSA season.
  • Have A Backup Plan:  Plan ahead of time to have a friend or two that you can call pick up for you in a pinch. I’m sure they’ll only eat a few…

Important Note:  All options require providing notice BEFORE YOUR PICKUP! If you are in transit when trouble arises, PLEASE REACH OUT FOR HELP! Unclaimed shares are not eligible for make-ups.
