Big River Farms CSA

2022 CSA shares are on sale now!

Joining a CSA (community supported agriculture) is one of the most meaningful ways you can support diverse, local farmers.

With a Big River Farms CSA membership, you receive a weekly delivery of fresh, organic produce grown by beginning farmers. Plus, you’re helping those farmers to access land and infrastructure, to use sustainable practices, and to learn about marketing and CSA logistics. Our farmers include immigrants and refugees, BIPOC and others who face discrimination in agriculture and systemic barriers to accessing land, capital, and markets.

How Does It Work?

This year, we’re offering veggie and fruit shares in various sizes. As a Big River Farms vegetable share member, you’ll receive 18 weeks of fresh, seasonal produce grown by emerging farmers in our education program! Multiple farmers grow a variety of veggies that are harvested for each week’s CSA box, and the fruit comes from nearby farm partners.*

Why Purchase a Big River Farms CSA?

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit. Your membership helps educate beginning farmers.

Our vegetable and fruit shares are all 100% USDA-certified organic and delivered direct to you.

Your share will include produce from several local farmers of diverse backgrounds.

We offer multiple payment options, including monthly billing and SNAP-EBT.

We drop shares at 13 different locations around the Twin Cities and Stillwater.

Your vegetable share comes with a seasonal herb pot — sage, oregano, parsley, or thyme from our greenhouses.

Plus, you get a weekly e-newsletter with farm stories and updates, information about your vegetables, tips for storage and preparation, and recommended recipes. You’ll also receive invitations to volunteer, attend workshops, and tour the farm.

*If you were a 2021 CSA member, please note that we’re no longer offering customizable shares. The complicated logistics did not align well with our education, empowerment, and support model for beginning farmers.

Help to Pay for Your CSA
Check out Partner Shares, a program that pays up to $350 toward the purchase of fresh produce. Don't forget we accept SNAP and EBT.

CSA Membership Agreement

As a Big River Farms CSA member, you agree to and understand that produce is not always perfect, and there may be flaws or imperfections, dirt, or pests. We do our absolute best to pick the highest-quality organic produce, but sometimes mistakes are made or products may be damaged or missing. You agree to work with Harvie and Big River Farms to report any such issues. At our discretion, credits may be issued on your Harvie account for missing items or shares.

By becoming a Big River Farms CSA member, you share in the risks and rewards of the growing season. You realize issues related to harvest and bounty may preclude produce from being delivered, such as pests, blights, weather, and other unforeseen circumstances.
