How it Works 

  • We offer 3 sessions: Spring, Summer, and Fall. Each session, we offer 2 pick-up days -- Wednesdays from 2-5 pm, and Saturdays from 9-12 am -- that enable you to choose what works best for you and your household.
  • Your weekly share includes 4-6 items of Certified Organic produce grown on our farm and seasonal access to the flower and herb Pick-Your-Own areas.
  • CSA members bring their compost to the farm each week, diverting fruit and vegetable waste away from landfills to become rich, nutritive fertilizer. Learn more about our compost program here.
  • Our CSA is a great way to get outdoors with your family each week, eat healthier, diversify your diet, get to know your community, and support your local non-profit farm.

Our CSA is about learning and community building. 

We have run a successful CSA in Montgomery County MD since 1996 and are the longest continuously running CSA in the county. Our CSA has grown from 12 members in 1996 to 120 members today. Many members return year after year. Our happiest customers live nearby (with 15 miles) and enjoy spending time in the Pick-Your-Own gardens. In general, if you enjoy cooking and tasting new things you will have a good experience. We encourage CSA members to treat their season as a continuing education experience. Try a few new veggies, use our weekly newsletter to learn new ways to prepare your favorites, get to know our Growers, and ask them how they like to prepare unique items like kohlrabi or hakurei turnips.

Our CSA is the backbone of our mission and core values. 

We create meaningful employment for adults with developmental disabilities. This is why we were formed and it is at the core of everything we do. The jobs created by the CSA enable our activities at Red Wiggler to thrive. Through our 3-part CSA Program, we provide produce to low-income households. Given the current needs of our community, we have shifted that goal from 30 percent to 50 percent. Please take a moment to look over our entire website. Our vision is to create fertile ground to nourish a healthy and inclusive community. The CSA is integral to our mission and our core values are embedded in our CSA program.
