Purchase your membership by June 1st to save 15% on produce this season. 

Memberships purchased before June 1st will receive a 15% discount on produce.  Memberships purchased after June 1st, as well as money added to cards after this date, will receive a 10% discount on produce.

Our farm membership is designed to be flexible so that you get only the produce you want when you need it.  There are no weekly pick-up obligations; members shop at their convenience.  There are no pre-boxed shares; members choose all their own produce in the quantity they need.  Members enjoy a discount on their produce all season long.

Here’s how it works:  

Members pre-pay a minimum of $200.  We take that money and put it on a debit card for you to use in our farm retail store and at our farmer’s market locations.  Every time you buy produce we’ll discount your purchase and deduct the total from your debit account.  You can shop anytime during our store hours, which are Monday through Saturday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm, and you can buy whatever produce you want in the quantity you need.  Our season runs June through October.

How does this membership differ from a traditional CSA membership? How is it similar?

With most traditional CSA memberships, members are given a pre-selected variety and quantity of produce in each week’s share.  The members don’t get a lot of choice in what they get.  With our membership program, the members choose what they buy and how much.  There are no preset options, the member has total control over what they get.  Our members also have control over when they get their produce.  There are no designated pick-up times.  You can shop anytime during store hours for your produce.

Our program offers the same benefits to the farmer as traditional CSA’s because we are receiving money during the winter and spring months which we use to pay for the inputs we need at the start of the season.  Just like with a traditional CSA model, you, the member, invest money in us, the farm, before the start of the harvest season.  Then all season long you come to the farm or farmer’s market and get your share of the farm’s produce.

What are the benefits of being a member?

The first benefit is the money you’ll save with your 15% discount.   The second benefit is the produce itself.  Here at North Shore Farm, we strive to offer only the freshest, highest quality produce to our customers.  Also, when you become a member you commit to eating local, fresh produce.  This is a benefit not only to you but to the community as well because it supports local farms and builds the local economy.

Do I have to be a member to shop at the retail store?

No, you don’t need to be a member to shop with us, everyone’s welcome.  But if you love farm fresh produce and think you’ll be shopping often, it pays to be a member.

What if more than one shopper will be using the card?

If multiple people will be shopping under the same membership we will add each individuals name to the account; and we can keep your card on file for you in our store.  When someone comes into to shop with your membership, they just give us the name of the primary member as well as their own name.  We’ll find the right card, discount the purchase 15% and deduct the amount from the membership account.

What if I don’t spend all the money?

The money must be used by the end of the season.  The balance will not rollover.  There will be no refunds.

What if I spend all my money before the end of the season?

You can add more money to your balance at any time and in $100 dollar increments.
