What You Get

Our Promise

Although Tinicum CSA is not certified organic, all our produce is grown in accord with organic principles and methods.  We do not use any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or fertilizers.  Everything we grow is GMO-free.

If you have any questions about our practices, you are welcome to stop by, ask questions, and see our fields for yourself! We believe that this direct, person-to-person trust and transparency is more meaningful and sustainable than paying a third-party certification corporation to vouch for our growing practices.

Season

The pick-up season is 24 weeks long. The first pick-up for 2021 will be Saturday, May 29th and the last pick-up will be Tuesday, November 9th. Following the final regular pickup, we offer a Thanksgiving Bonus Pick-Up for members who renew their membership for the next season. For more information about Pick-Up times, please refer to our Picking Up Your Shares page.

Sliding Scale

We use a sliding price scale in an effort to help the farm cover its costs while still making membership available to the widest variety of people. Those who can afford to pay near the upper end of the scale will help the farm invest in appropriate equipment and infrastructure, while keeping membership affordable to those with greater financial constraints. In this way, members commit not only to supporting the farm, but also to supporting each other.

Share Options

Tinicum CSA grows a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and herbs — over forty crops, from carrots and tomatoes to watermelons and lettuce.

The size and composition of our shares will shift with the seasons. 

Spring shares kick off with cool-weather crops like spinach, radishes, lettuce, baby kale, and scallions. As the weather warms, we move into late spring with broccoli, cabbage, carrots, and cauliflower. At the height of summer’s glory, we indulge in juicy watermelons, cantaloupe, tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and peppers. Autumn’s bounty brings us butternut squash, potatoes, beets, garlic, and sweet potatoes — as well as the reappearance of many cool-weather spring vegetables.

Along the way, we offer a cut-your-own flower patch, a perennial herb patch, and the chance to pick your own cherry tomatoes & raspberries.

“You truly are the best – I still cannot get over how clean all the produce is and how well organized you are. I cannot imagine life without a CSA in it!” — Maria, Perkasie, PA
