2019 COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE PROGRAM
Over the past couple of years, Grande has partnered with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the area to promote to our Associates and their families. We are happy to announce we will again be partnering with a few different farms in WI!
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a powerful investment in your health, community, and local economy. It’s a partnership between farms and consumers that keeps independent businesses thriving, helps families eat seasonal, local produce, and charges farmers and consumers with the responsibility of building a strong, equitable food system. Members pay for their share of vegetables up front and receive a weekly or bi-weekly delivery of vegetables through the 20 week high growing season from June-October.
When you sign up for a CSA through Grande’s program, Grande will pay the total cost of the share upfront to help alleviate the large initial cost. Then during the CSA season (June –October) you will pay back the cost of the share through bi-weekly payroll deductions.
Check out the left hand column to find a partnering farm in your area, view share pricing and instructions for sign-up.

** CSA SHARE AVAILABILITY IS ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS! IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE, PLEASE SIGN-UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
**CSA PROGRAM RULES & CONDITIONS:
I understand that if I participate in the CSA program promoted by Grande that Grande will pay the entire cost of my share upfront to the participating farm. At the start of the season in June deductions will begin from my paychecks to pay back the cost of the share over 10 pay periods.
I understand that if for whatever reason I am no longer an Associate of Grande, the remaining amount of my CSA purchase will be deducted from my final paycheck and I will continue to be responsible for my CSA share. If my share is currently being delivered to a Grande facility, I understand I will need to make arrangements with the farm to have my share delivered to one of their other designated locations for pick-up.
I understand that when purchasing a CSA share that I am sharing the risk of farming with the farmer and my fellow CSA members. I acknowledge that I am not eligible for a refund once I sign up. I acknowledge that due to weather, nature, and/or other production factors, the variety and quantity of produce I receive may vary from what is expected. I also acknowledge that purchasing a CSA share is on a first come, first serve basis and that I am not guaranteed a share as farms have a limited number they can supply. If you do not receive a CSA share due to the farm being filled to capacity, you will not be required to pay for the share.
