What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between a local farm and their community of supporters. Supporters help cover a farm's yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season's harvest. In other words, when you purchase a share of our CSA, you become a member of the Snipes Farm team! It is only with the support of the community that we could accomplish our goal of sustainable and organic farming. With your support comes a bounty of fruits & vegetables. With their initial payment, CSA members help assume the costs, risks, and bounty of growing food.
How is this different from a grocery store?
Once you buy a share of our CSA, you have bought a share of the produce that is grown at the farm! Each week, you can come to Snipes Farm and pick up the produce that was selected by our farmers. Unlike a grocery store, our produce is as fresh as possible. It is only through a CSA that you can know exactly where, how, and by whom your fruits and vegetables are grown.
Shares are as follows:
2021 Season will be distributed on Thursdays 3-7pm June 10, 2021 to November 4, 2021 or Saturdays 9:30am-12pm June 12, 2021 to November 6, 2021
Traditional Full Share: $700 - Members pick up 8 to 12 items of produce weekly as selected by the farmer.
Traditional Half Share: $400 - Members pick up 8 to 12 items of produce every other week as selected by the farmer.

Fruit at Snipes Farm
If you purchase a Market Share then you can use your prepaid member card towards fruit, jams, Mighty Cider and other special items throughout the season. Keep this in mind when deciding which share level is right for you. If you purchase a Traditional Share then all of these items will be available to you for cash purchase.

Our apples are different. You won't find apples grown like ours on any other farm in Bucks County or the surrounding area. We do not use pesticides or chemical sprays in our orchard, therefore, our natural apples may have spots and not be grocery-store perfect. They are, however, the most delicious, healthy apples you'll find anywhere.
