2012 CSA Sign up form

Sparrow Arc Farm 2012 CSA Share Sign up Form

Thank you for considering Sparrow Arc Farm as your fruit and vegetable grower. We are a family farm cultivating 40 acres of vegetable crops and 8 acres of orchard. We grow entirely organically, using only certified organic materials for all our crops, but are not certified. We choose not to certify because we believe being accountable to your land and to your customers is far more important than being accountable to an agency from whom you want a stamp. Most of our business is with restaurants in Boston, NYC, and Portland Maine. For them we grow a large number of heirloom and artisan crops for which we’ve become well known. We offer these specialty crops as well as seasonal fruit as a standard part of our shares.

We currently have pickup sites in Boston, Cambridge, Kennebunk Me, and Wellesley Mass. If you’d like to have a site closer to you please call Matt at 207.323.4439 or email us at and we can tell you how easy it is to get started.

Sparrow Arc Farm shares are First Come, First Serve! Half the price of your share is due at sign up to hold your spot. Please don’t wait to sign up because we do sell out.
