About Community Supported Agriculture
Full Belly Farm offers weekly organic produce boxes to families throughout the Bay Area and Sacramento regions. When you join, your family will have a direct connection to the farm and you will eat the freshest, most nutritional fruits and vegetables available.
A weekly box of fruits and vegetables can feed a family of 2 to 3, depending on how much you cook at home and how many fruits and vegetables you eat. The kinds of vegetables you receive depends on the season. For example, a Spring box might contain: 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch broccoli, 1 bunch red kale, 1/2 lb salad mix, 1 green cabbage, 1 lb potatoes, 1 bunch beets, and 1 bunch green garlic. For the produce in this week’s box, check out the list on our home page, or our online newsletter.
Full Belly chooses what goes into the boxes from a wide variety of produce grown on the farm. You will get your favorite fruits and vegetables as well as new things to try. Every week we feature a recipe that helps you to use some of the less common items. For a chart of our seasonal produce, go to our Crops Timeline.
When you join this Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA), you choose a delivery day and a neighborhood pickup location, or request home delivery. Full Belly currently has pick-up locations in the East Bay, North Bay, San Francisco, and the South Bay, as well as in Sacramento, Davis, Woodland, and Esparto. We can also deliver your box direct to your home or office in some areas
Scheduling and Prices
When you place your order, you will specify a schedule that works for you. You can skip a week, cancel, or donate your box to our Good Food Community Fund. You can order for every other week, for example, or omit weeks when you will be away.
The price of the box is $18 (minimum of 4 boxes is $72). If you pay in advance for 12 or more boxes, the price is discounted to $16.50 per box ($214.50 for 13 weeks). An additional discount is given if you pay for a whole year at one time. Annual payment is $16 per box for 48 weeks (total of $768.)
Home or Office Delivery
Home delivery of your box is available at certain locations for an additional $7 per week. You do not have to be at your home or office for the delivery. To start getting a home delivery, you will need to submit a request so that we can map your location. Home delivery is limited in some locations.
Picking up Your Produce
When you pick up your veggies, please bring a bag or basket. Do not take the green plastic boxes home. Please leave them at your pick-up site.
Check that your name is on the delivery list before you take your vegetables. If your name is not there, we did not harvest vegetables for you. Please do not take a box if your name is not on the list. Contact us to straighten things out.
We cannot guarantee that your box will be at the pick-up location beyond the scheduled times (left over boxes are distributed to various non-profit organizations). Out of courtesy to our neighborhood hosts, please only pick up within the designated times.
