Our farm fresh produce is available to the public in a variety of ways:
We are currently planning out our crop details for 2020 and will post more details when we have them.
About our CSA
Here are general details about our CSA program from previous years:
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. At the same time, this provides a hands on opportunity for students to learn the growing and harvesting practices of many crops.
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 SRJC Shone Farm.
Each week’s produce will change, and everyone's eating habits are different. A CSA box share should feed 2 avid vegetable eaters, or a family of 4 "average" veggie eaters. Our scholar bag share is taylored to 1 - 2 people, or occasional veggie eaters.
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
Regular CSA box: This box is good for dedicated vegetable eaters or a family. It includes 8 - 10 items every week. You also receive a weekly newsletter with storage and preparation tips, plus lots of great recipes. The cost ranges from $24 - $27/ week, depending on the 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 4 - 5 items tailored to create a meal, with recipes included. The full season cost is $12/ week, and the monthly cost is $12.50/ week.
Length of membership:
Discounted full season membership – receive 1 box or bag every week for the full CSA season (28 weeks) at a discounted rate. Box cost is $700 for the 28 week membership, which equals $25/ box. Scholar bag cost is $336 for the 28 weeks, which equals $12/ bag.
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 6th, 2019. The fall season runs from September 14th through December 13th. Cost is $364 for the 14 week membership, which equals $26/ box. We do not offer a seasonal scholar bag option.
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. Box cost ranges from $108 - 135, depending on the month, which equals $27/ box. Scholar bag cost ranges from $50 - 62.50, which equals $12/ month.
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.

Seasonal Farm Stand
In previous years, students in the Direct Farm Marketing class helped run a farm stand on campus during the fall semester. We are still working out the details for 2020 and will post them when we have them.
