COVID-19 Farm Update

Due to the spread of COVID - 19, we are currently in the process of making a few changes to our 2020 CSA. 

  • Our 2020 CSA will remain the same with new pick-up procedures. As we continue to monitor the situation, we will be in touch about new changes which will most likely include expanded hours and curbside pick-up, or even delivery to reduce social contact.
  • Our Beech Bucks application is still open. However, we are currently assessing how to operate the farmstand this season to ensure safety for our staff and customers.  We are reviewing our options, including an online ordering platform and pickup or delivery service. If we do switch over to an online platform, you will be able to use your Beech Bucks for on-line purchasing.

Beech Hill Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program

2020 CSA options
We are launching a new Free Choice, Debit Style CSA (Beech Bucks) option for the 2020 season. 

For all of you who love supporting the farm and getting weekly Beech Hill Farm fresh vegetables at a discounted rate, but wish you had more choice and flexibility, this option is for you!  With Beech Bucks you get to spend the amount you choose and select the produce you want while still helping the farm with important cash flow in the spring before the bulk of our crops are in. 

We will still offer our traditional pre-packed Box Style Share for those of you who like to make a quick, hassle-free stop at the farm (or at COA in the fall), or if you can’t make it to the farmstand while it’s open. 

Both share options offer a 10% discount* in the farmstand. 

Please note that for our Box Style Share we are reducing the discount in the farmstand this season. 

2020 Beech Bucks CSA option

How do Beech Bucks work?  

Sign up for a share. Select the amount you want to purchase in increments of $100.

Once we receive payment, we’ll send you your Beech Bucks card in the mail before the farmstand opens on June 9th. 

Use your Beech Bucks card in the farmstand and receive 10% off your entire purchase! Remember you can use your card for meat, dairy, preserves, gifts and baked goods in addition to farm produce. (Does not include our Share the Harvest merchandise).

Shop at the farmstand any time with your Beech Bucks. Summer Hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 9am - 4pm ; Fall Hours are Thursday - Saturday, 10am - 4pm. 

If you run out of funds, you can always re-up in the farmstand throughout the season.
