Terra Firma’s CSA is pre-paid.  We require a minimum payment of $150 to begin your subscription. We use a web-based subscriber database that allows payment by electronic check (E-Check), Paypal or credit card.  After that, you will recieve a reminder email any time your balance drops below a minimum amount, depending on the size box you are receiving.

The cost of each box?  $16 for Small, $27 for Medium, and $36 for Large (As of July 1st, 2014).  We do not offer individual boxes for sale; only subscriptions. Each vacation week is billed at $4, $8, and $11 respectively.

We offer bonuses based on the size of your payment to encourage a longer commitment to our farm.  Payments of $300 or more receive a 3% bonus; $850 or more a 5% bonus; and $1400 or more a 7% discount.

Before committing to a subscription with Terra Firma, you will be asked to read and agree to the terms and conditions of the membership agreement.
