About Community Supported Agriculture
Full Belly Farm offers weekly produce boxes through our Community Supported Agriculture project or CSA. As a member, your family will have a direct connection to the farm and you will eat the freshest, most nutritional fruits and vegetables available, year-round. By belonging to the CSA, you support organic farming practices that are healthful for people and the environment.
Members receive boxes of fresh produce delivered to convenient neighborhood locations in the East Bay, North Bay, San Francisco, and the South Bay, as well as in Sacramento, Davis, Woodland, and Esparto.
Join Our CSA – 4-weeks for $72!
A weekly box of fruits and vegetables can feed a family of 2 to 3 – but it really depends 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.
Full Belly chooses what goes into the boxes. However, the farm offers a wide variety of produce to its members. CSA members find their favorite fruits and vegetables in their boxes, as well as new things to try. For a chart of our seasonal produce, go to our Crops Timeline.
When you join our CSA, you choose a delivery day and a neighborhood pickup place. When you place your orders, you specify the schedule that works for you. You can skip a week or cancel if you let us know five days in advance. (For example, notify us on Monday if you want to cancel a Friday box.) You can order for every other week, for example, or omit weeks when you will be away. For additional details about orders and pickup, go to Members’ Info.
The weekly box costs $18; or $16.50 per week if you pay for three months in advance ($214.50 for 13 weeks); or $16 per week if you pay for one year in advance ($768 for 48 consecutive weeks, but no skipping boxes for annual payers). Home or office delivery is available in selected East Bay and Sacramento locations for an extra charge of $7 per week (details here).
Home or Office Delivery
Home delivery of your box is available at the following locations for an additional $7 per week:
- Sacramento on Wednesday
- Emeryville, Oakland, Piedmont, Alameda, Berkeley, Kensington, Albany, El Cerrito on Tuesday or Wednesday
You do not have to be at your home or office for the delivery. Before ordering home or office delivery, please email us with your street address, including cross-street, so we can confirm that your location is on our delivery route.
You can also arrange for home or office deliveries with Pedal Express. Pedal Express can pick up your CSA box from Full Belly pick-up locations in North Oakland, Central Berkeley, or North Berkeley, and deliver the box to your door. It will be less expensive if you schedule regular deliveries. Call Pedal Express at 510-843-7339, or visit their website at www.pedalexpress.com/berkeley. Full Belly is not responsible for the home or office deliveries that you schedule with Pedal Express.
