What is a Plant Start CSA?
Gooseberry Bridge Farm grows all of our annual plants and garden starts from seed each year. CSA stands for community supported agriculture. Farmers often have the costs and many hours of work in their products before they are ever ready for market. Farmers establish CSAs to link communities to farms by asking their communities to provide financial support in exchange for goods in advance of the season. In exchange for making an early investment before the season starts, the member typically receives more than fair market value in goods during the growing season.
In this Plant CSA you will will receive all of your plants in one pick up - and you'll benefit from knowing where your plants are coming from and that you’ve reserved your garden early - just as if you were starting the seeds at home yourself!
We will have pick up times posted the first week in May. Limited CSA shares are available and some plant selections may be limited. All orders must be placed and paid in full by March 1st to receive the discount listed below. If the CSA slots fill up, we may not have space to grow extra plants for a plant sale as we have done in previous years, so get your orders in now!
Several packages are available. We specialize in heirloom tomato and pepper starts. Our starts are grown using organic practices and are quite large when it is time to plant them in the ground, giving your garden a head start! We will also have a variety of other heat loving summer plants available.
How it works:
When you order (by March 1st) you may choose from the types of plants I am growing (tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, sauce/roma tomatoes, cucumbers, squash etc) and I will do my best to fill your tray with your selections but in the event of seed/crop failure I may need to make substitutions (and/or give you extra plants!). See our entire variety list here, or let us customize your garden based on your general preferences! No refunds will be issued as long as substitutions are available (if there are choices I will message you about them and you may also switch out any of my selections with other options available upon pick up!). Plants that are not picked up by the TBA deadline (likely around Mother's Day) will be considered abandoned and will be rehomed.
All tomato plants will be grown in 3” pots (some smaller plants may be in 2” pots)
