Values Driven: 

At Astarte, all decisions are made with our three core values in mind: quality, relationships, and ecological sustainability. Read more about each of these on our about page.

Flexible Pick ups + Convenient Location:

Astarte's "box style" CSA allows us to offer shareholders maximum flexibility. Your box is freshest on pack day, but you're welcome to pick up anytime during the week, whenever is best for you. We are also conveniently located in the center of Hadley, MA, just off route 9

Highest Quality Produce: 

All of our CSA produce is washed to grocery store standards, and we never use any sprays, even organically approved ones. This means your produce is ready to take home, toss in the fridge, and eat whenever. No hassleFurthermore, we believe our no-till soil practices lend themselves to more nutrient dense, delicious tasting produce. Check out what our customers are saying below.

This land is for you and your community. Astarte is open for members to enjoy abundant pick-your-own with friends and family, from 8am-dusk, 7 days/week. We also offer several community events throughout the season, such as potlucks, cooking classes, and workshops, all open and free to CSA members.

How it works?

  • What's in a Box?- 8-12 items (not including pick-your-own produce) depending on the season. Items include a delicious array of what we have available. From our famous head lettuce to juicy heirloom tomatoes and squash, you can be sure to experience the best of what the valley has to offer through your Astarte share. 

  • Cost-$730 for a full 26 week season: 1 box per week from the first week of May until the end of October

  • Payment-CSA shares are paid either in full when members sign-up, or in two separate installments at the time of sign-up and by June 1st. We also happily accept SNAP benefits for payment. 

  • Pickup-You choose to sign up for either Tuesday or Friday packs, meaning each week you will have a box packed by 1pm on your chosen day. You can then come pick up your box anytime during farm hours, 8am-dusk, 7days/week, whenever is most convenient for you.
