Summer Farm Shares
2016 was a crazy year for Full Moon Farm. In addition to farming, Farmer Dave spent the year campaigning for higher office while Farmer Rachel worked hard to keep the farm's head above water. Now that Farmer Dave is also Lieutenant Governor Dave, something had to give. Therefore, in 2017 we have decided to streamline our operation by eliminating our pick up at One Main St in Burlington. We are very sorry for any hardships this causes, especially to our members who have remained with us there over many years. We have come up with an alternative that will work for some but certainly not all of those members. In lieu of the One Main St Pick-up, Full Moon Farm will be offering an Absolute Free Choice CSA at the Burlington Farmers' Market. For more information and to register for that option Click here
Sign-up for our summer CSA by our Early-Bird Deadline, (post-marked by April 15, 2017) and qualify for a discount. Click on the registration form below for details.
If you need financial assistance in purchasing a share, you may qualify for a discount through the NOFAVT Farmshare program. Applications open March 9 through NOFAVT. For an application and more information Click here

With so many CSAs in Chittenden County, why choose Full Moon Farm as your CSA?
Full Moon Farm keeps the 'community' in Community Supported Agriculture. We chose to be CSA farmers, in part, because we want people to become, or stay, connected to their food source. So, unlike anonymous box-drop-off CSAs, Full Moon Farmers come to the pick-ups to be an active part of the farmer/consumer equation. You benefit because we are there to answer your questions, give recipe ideas, tell you what's coming up next. We benefit because we hear your stories, your suggestions, your dietary and culinary success stories.
The icing on the carrot cake is that because we attend every pick-up, Full Moon Farm can offer you choices. As a Full Moon Farm customer you choose the tomatoes ('black' or yellow, red or striped, medium or beefsteak, super ripe or slightly firm.) You choose the variety of lettuce you want (redleaf, greenleaf, buttercrunch or romaine,) or how you want to balance your choice (ie: Members get: 2 lbs total of red peppers, green peppers, eggplant and tomatilloes. Balance the weight as you wish.) Nobody likes waste, so we aim to provide you with options to allow you to take home the most food you will use for your money.
By the way, did I mention that we have SWEET CORN? Most local CSAs do not have enough land to grow sweet corn. Members of Full Moon Farm can expect sweet corn for 8-10 weeks of the summer!
Small Share The small share is small. Consider it a salad share with a few other vegetables thrown into the mix. Perfect for a single person or a small family that doesn't eat a lot of vegetables. Please note, 2017 smalls will be slightly smaller than in 2016. We gave out too much food in that category last year. Small share holders will not be able to get some of every vegetable offered each week. Sometimes you will have to choose between two popular items. You will have the option of choosing every item we offer over the course of the entire season but you won't be able to choose it every time it is within viewing distance at pick-up.($395)
Medium Share The medium share is our original share size that we started with back in 1999. Generally it feeds a family of four or two people who like vegetables with almost every meal.($575)
Large ShareThe large share works well for 4-5 adults sharing a household, two vegetarians who eat home most of the time or two families who go away on wknds and summer vacations who choose to split a share. ($745)
Confused which size to sign up for? Click hereto see what we gave to each size at three different weeks last summer. Keep in mind that the season starts off small and then expands as more crops come in.
