Becoming a CSA Host

How to Become a CSA Host

Just let us know that you would like to be a CSA host. If you are close to our existing route we’d like for you to have at least 5 members in addition to yourself. If you are outside of our area, please contact us anyway…we are always looking for opportunities to expand, whether through additional CSA areas, wholesaling to retailers in those areas, or supplying buying groups who have their own members.

Here's what works best:

Have a sheltered area, protected from weather and predators.

For residents, covered porches and garages are good choices.

For businesses, coolers, office lobbies or other areas inside the establishment..we will work with you to determine the most suitable situation.

The CSA boxes need to be accessible to the members through the evening of the delivery date. We ask that CSA hosts be willing to contact members that haven’t picked up that day to determine if there is a problem. Hosts should also be willing to work with the members, perhaps by bringing their box indoors overnight until they can come pick it up. 

Benefits

Residential hosts who help us recruit 10 or more members for their site will receive either a free or discounted membership (depending on the share you choose.)

Business hosts often experience increased traffic to their establishment, and some use our CSA program as a marketing tool. Current hosts include restaurants, natural food stores, schools, fitness and nutrition centers. Cross-promotion opportunities abound!

Businesses are encouraged to offer CSA shares to their employees as a benefit.

Schools and organizations can use our CSA program for fund-raising, receiving 5% of the membership fees as a donation to your beneficiary in an end of season rebate.                                 

Call Tim Austin at 719-338-4146 for more info, or to chat about your location ideas.
