COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
Spade & Plow runs a unique year-round CSA program. Our CSA boxes are customizable, with complimentary home delivery and multiple pick up locations throughout Santa Clara County. We feature certified organic seasonal produce from our farm and other local growers, as well as fresh bread, pasture raised eggs, and coffee add-ons. Spade & Plow strives to create a high value and accessible organic local food program for all of the South Bay.
Select your own delivery location or pick up location! We offer complimentary home delivery as well as multiple pick up locations. Choose a small, standard, or large share, with the option to add-on bread, eggs, and coffee.
Spade & Plow sets a standard box each week, depending on the season, the quality and quantity on hand, and the most recently harvested. We send an email out 2 days before your delivery day with your box’s contents, as well a third-party link to our web store where you can log in and customize your box. Members have until noon the day before delivery day to make any changes to the box.
We drop your box off at the selected delivery location. You open, savor, and enjoy! Check our website for recipes, storage tips, and everything you need to know about how your produce was grown and harvested.
Give us feedback! We are always looking to improve how we grow, package, and deliver your food. Share your stories & recipes with us, too! YOU put the “community” in Community Supported Agriculture.
Empty, fold and leave your box at your pick up or delivery location. We prefer to reuse and reduce waste whenever possible. Most boxes can be reused up to 10 times!
