Register NOW for Your Annapolis Summer Fruit CSA!
Agriberry Annapolis offers a farm share membership program featuring weekly boxes for fresh, locally raised fruit from Agriberry Farm and other family-owned farms in the region.
The Summer Fruit Share program directly supports the farm’s mission to provide early work experience for area teens through the Young Worker Program 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 included will vary weekly based on harvest availability.
Farm Share Costs
A minimum deposit of $100 is required to join, and ALL BALANCES must be paid by the first pickup of the season. You may pay by check, cash, and credit/debit cards. If you join after the deliveries have begun, fees are pro-rated based on the remaining number of weeks (applied at checkout.)
Here’s more about the Annapolis Summer Fruit Shares:
- Pickups are every Wednesday for 20 weeks, that’s nearly five months of fruit!
- Begins with the start of the strawberry harvest, which typically begin to ripen in this region in late April or early May.
- Provides weekly shares of nutritious berries and other seasonal fruits, grown by long-time partner farmers.

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. You’ll also receive automated pickup reminders the night before each pickup.

Members often wonder what will be in their shares each week….and so do we! We include what’s available from local harvest, which can vary widely from year to year.

Strawberries, Asparagus, Blueberries, Rhubarb, Raspberries, Cherries, Blackberries, Plums, Yellow and White Peaches, Yellow and White Nectarines, Pears, Asian Pears, Apples, and More!
A-Town Vacations and Make-Ups
We pride ourselves on being 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 just about anything work!
- Double Shares: If you want to skip a delivery, you can elect to receive an extra share (a.k.a. a double share) on any other delivery week(s) of the CSA season as a Make-Up.
- 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.
