ABOUT OUR CSA

We are proud to offer our Free-Choice CSA!

This kind of CSA provides the most flexibility for you.  Unlike traditional CSAs where you get a box of produce packed for you, with ours, you get to decide what certified organic produce you want, and how much!  All you have to do is shop for your share at the Farmer’s Market, at our farm stand, or order home delivery.  Like all CSAs, you support a local farm by paying in full for your share before the season starts–if you sign up for our CSA by April 1, we will add 10% to your share.  

Once the season starts, you will have through December 31 of that year to spend down your share.  

You decide how much or how little (or even if) you spend during any given week, but once we reach the end of the year, your share will not roll over.  

You can shop at any of our locations (the Champlain Islands Wednesday and Saturday markets, our farm stand, or order home delivery).  


Free-Choice CSA
–  Buy what you want, when you want.  We keep track of how much you have spent–all you have to do is pick out your favorite produce without the hassle of having to grab cash.

  • 10% early bird share bonus – sign up by April 1 with a share of $100 or more and make your share go further!
  • Available at:
    • Our Home Delivery service! Order Sundays for Monday delivery, estimated to go from mid-March through mid-November. (Minimum order for delivery: $15)
    • Our Farm Stand (2468 Main St. Isle La Motte)
      • Daily from dawn to dusk
      • Mid-April through Mid-November
    • The Summer Champlain Islands Farmers Market
    • The Winter Champlain Islands Farmers Market 
  • Full flexibility: shop as often as you like through December 31
  • Make one payment, then no need to worry about handling cash or incurring credit card fees
  • Choice: you decide what you want, and how much
    • Note: if you want to make a bulk purchase of produce, we can often accommodate requests like this, with advance notice.
      • We may have to limit purchases of bulk produce at the market, due to limited supply
  • No weekly spending limit or obligation: spend whatever makes sense for your meal plan for that week.  Go on vacation without having to worry about produce spoiling!
  • Support local agriculture: By paying in advance for your summer’s produce, you help your farm at a time when most of our expenses are incurred.  Thank you!

“Free choice CSA is an incredible way to order your organic produce. Order as much or as little as you need, and have Patrick deliver it to your door!” Aldona in ILM

“Sandy Bottom Farm never disappoints. The produce is by far the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. It’s consistently beautiful, fresh, and tasty. Patrick is such a wonderful person and is a delight to interact with.” Janet in Grand Isle

“We truly enjoy everything Sandy Bottom Farm grows – their spicy baby lettuce mix is amazing! We cannot wait until growing season starts <3” Erin in ILM
