Clagett Farm's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program allows consumers to pre-purchase a "share" of the harvest directly from the farm. Each week, from mid-May to mid-November, CSA members pick up their fresh, organic vegetables at the farm or in the Dupont area of Washington, D.C.

How many distributions are in a share?

The full season consists of 26 weeks, from May 9-November 10 (there are no distributions made the week of July 4th). Shares are available in 26-week or 13-week options.

What does it cost?

26-week share, pickup at Clagett Farm: $640

  • Thank you to past Clagett Farm members--you get a $50 discount! Returning members pay only $590.

26-week share, pickup in Washington, D.C.: $700

  • Returning members pay only $650

13-week share, Clagett Farm pickup only: $350

Reduced-price shares are available for anyone who qualifies for government assistance (See qualification guidelines. This link will open in a new browser window.) If you qualify for reduced-price shares, please use this registration form.

How does it work?

A member who purchases a 26-week share may pick up every week of the season (except the week of July 4th). They may skip a week or double-up any weeks they like without advanced notice, as long as they take no more than 26 total shares, and a maximum of two shares per pick-up day.

In addition, they can come out to the farm at any time to visit, to help, or to harvest as much as they want from the items on the weekly "you-pick" list.

A member who purchases a 13-week share may pick up any 13 weeks over the course of the season. The weeks do not have to be consecutive. They may participate in "you-pick" only on the weeks they pick up their share.

Can I split my share with someone else?

Yes, you may. When you order you will be asked to provide the name(s) of anyone you are splitting your share with so that we know they have permission to pick up. You will need to handle any split payments among yourselves, however. We cannot process split payments.

Anyone may pick up the share on a given week, as long as, together, you take no more than two shares per pick-up day total. It works best for everyone if you alternate weeks, rather than trying to divide one share in half each week.

When and where do I pick up my shares?

Pick-up times are:

  • At Clagett Farm on Wednesdays from 3-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 1-4 p.m.
    11904 Old Marlboro Pike, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772
  • In the Dupont area of Washington, D.C. on Wednesdays from 6-7:30 p.m.
    1737 Fraser Ct, NW, Washinton, D.C. 20009

Can I pick up my share at another time slot or location?

Yes! If you sign up to collect your share at Clagett Farm, you may pick up on Wednesday or Saturday, without letting us know in advance. You may collect up to 6 shares from the Dupont pick-up over the course of the season.

If you sign up to collect your share in Dupont, you may pick up you share from the farm any Wednesday or Saturday that you like, without advanced notice.

Why Join Clagett Farm's CSA?

  • Because your food purchases should reflect what's important to you.
  • Fresh! Most of it is harvested the same day you receive it.
  • Delicious! We choose varieties for their flavor, not their ability to endure cross-country travel.
  • It's your farm! You can meet your farmers, see how we grow your food, and even lend a hand if you wish.
  • Local! We're just 15 miles from the U.S. Capitol building—purchasing a share keeps your food dollars in our local community and helps preserve farmland.
  • Good neighbors! We distribute almost half of our produce, free or at low cost, to low-income families that need it.
  • Healthy! Your share will encourage you to eat more fresh vegetables, and to eat them in season when they are most nutritious, flavorful, and environmentally friendly.
  • Organic and Bay-friendly! Our produce is free of petro-chemicals. We use only safe, natural techniques to fertilize our soil and manage pests and weeds. The health of our eco-system, our staff, and our community is our top priority. We do not use genetically modified seeds.
