Farm Fresh Produce
Our farm fresh produce is available to the public in a variety of ways:
We are not currently accepting new members for our 2019 CSA program. We are still planning our 2019 CSA details. Our CSA will begin on June 6th and runs 28 weeks, ending on December 13th. We should have the 2019 CSA details finalized by April 2019, so check back, or e-mail email@example.com to be notified when sign ups are available.
About our CSA
Each week, you will receive a share of whatever is ripe and ready to eat, grown by Sustainable Agriculture students. Our focus is to deliver a wide array of high quality produce, along with menu ideas planned for every box.
Everything is grown for you, our local community, using sustainable practices. Your CSA membership gets you fresh, tasty fruits and veggies while students receive the opportunity to learn how to run a sustainable farm and produce for a local direct market. Everything in our CSA is grown here at Shone Farm.
Each week’s produce will change, but a share should feed 2-3 people.
Here are a few typical items that you might see in the box each season:
Summer - Zucchini, cucumbers, lettuce and other greens, sweet corn, carrots, new potatoes, fresh herbs, berries, and apples
Fall - Tomatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers, lettuce and other greens, winter squash, broccoli, lemons, and apples
General CSA Details:
We select a wide variety of unique produce to tantalize your
taste buds, as well as some of the tried and true staples. We also strive to include a variety of unique items such as Shone Farm olive oil, dried beans, sweet potatoes and Sonora wheat.
Memberships: We offer a variety of CSA memberships. In the past years, we offered the following:
Discounted full season membership – receive 1 box or bag every week for the full CSA season (28 weeks) at a discounted rate. Cost will be $700 for the 28 week membership, which is $25/ week.
Single season membership (summer OR fall) - receive 1 box every week for the summer or fall season (14 weeks per season). The summer season runs from June 6th through September 5th, 2019. The fall season runs from September 14th through December 13th, 2018. Cost is $364 for the 14 week membership, which is $26/ week.
Monthly Membership - receive 1 box or bag every week for one month. The monthly option is available during the months of July, August, September, October, and November. The November monthly membership includes Thanksgiving week, with special items geared towards your feast. Cost ranges from $108 - 135, depending on the month, which will be around $27/ week.
Pick up locations will be at Shone Farm in Forestville, the Santa Rosa Junior College campus, and Steele & Hops. Members picking up at the farm receive a $1/ week discount on CSA boxes (price is automatically deducted at checkout, online). We are also determining an additional pick up location at the Petaluma SRJC campus.
Regular CSA box: This box is good for dedicated vegetable eaters or a family. It includes 8 - 10 items every week. The cost will probably range from $24 - $27/ week, depending on length of membership and pick up location. (Members picking up at Shone Farm receive $1 off each box).
Scholar Bag: If the quantity of vegetables in the CSA box is too much for your family to consume, you may want to consider the Scholar Bag. This option includes about 4 items tailored to create a meal, with a recipe included. The full season cost will be about $12/ week, and the monthly cost will be about $12.50/ week.

Pick and Sip Saturdays are a new family-oriented community event series at SRJC Shone Farm. The farm opens to the public for a special day of u-pick of our seasonal crops, food & music, wine & olive oil tasting and farm activities!
