2013 CSA Prices
I’m super excited for CSA season to start back up here in Northern Nevada. The prices and season options for my CSA, Great Basin Basket CSA, are now available and I thought I would put them out to the blogosphere for some feedback. The dollar amount of the box is about the same as last year but the seasons have been shortened by several weeks in the beginning and at the end. Also, the prices do not include a fruit subscription. The fruit subscription will be separate and has not been priced as of yet.
What do you think? If you are a subscriber somewhere else, how do these prices compare to yours?
Here’s the details:
Spring 8/4 weeks (May 7-June 27) Weekly- $216 Bi-weekly- $120
Summer 12/6 weeks (July 9-Sept 26) Weekly- $348 Bi-weekly- $192
Autumn 6/3 weeks (Oct 1-Nov 7) Weekly- $162 Bi-weekly- $90
All three seasons! 26 weeks Weekly- $726 Bi-weekly- $402
Basket shares feed 3-4. Bi-weekly shares are delivered as follows: Last name begins with A-K: delivery begins on
first & odd weeks. Last name begins with L-Z: delivery begins on second and even weeks. No exceptions, please.
Bi-weekly memberships will be notified of your delivery dates.
Weekly subscription prices: Spring-$27 per week; Summer-$29 per week; Autumn-$27 per week. Bi-weekly subscriptions have an additional $3 per week surcharge.
Payment plan option: Send $50 deposit to reserve your seasons, and the balance for each season will be due
one week before the season begins.* Final payment for Spring is due April 30; Summer is due July 2; Autumn is
due Sept. 24. The deposit is applied to your subscription.

To be fair, I loved my CSA subscription last year and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it. But, I do have to admit the price is a little spendy and I’m not sure if I want to do it again this year. Give me some feedback! I’m waffling on the veggies here!
