Share Obligations

PLG CSA is all volunteer and member run. The CSA cannot function without its members! Every household (regardless of share size or number of people in the household) is required to work three (3) distribution shifts (approximately 6 hours total). There are two shifts per distribution that set up, unload the truck, weigh and distribute vegetables during pick ups, break down and clean up. It’s a fun, community-building time and children are welcome. When you sign up, you’ll get detailed information on this requirement and instructions on signing up for shifts. If you do not work your shifts you will not be able to re-join the CSA for a year.

Other CSA Products

PLG CSA manages a monthly pasture-raised meat share from Herondale Farm which includes a mix of beef, lamb, pork and chicken. There is a 9 month chicken-only (also pasture-raised) share available as well. Click here for more information.
