Registration for our Weekly Flower CSA is closed. We’ll begin accepting early registrations for next summer’s season on National CSA Sign Up Day in February 2019. If you’d like to be notified when registration opens, please complete this short form.
When will my membership begin and end?
The duration of your membership determines the start and end date for your flowers. Full season memberships span 16 weeks, beginning in June and concluding at the end of September.
When and where do I pick up my weekly flowers?
With the support of our amazing community partners, we offer pickup from several locations in downtown Lexington. Delivery is available to downtown Lexington location (inside New Circle Road) for an additional weekly fee.
What does CSA mean?
CSA is the abbreviation for community-supported agriculture. This term means the farmer and member share in the benefits and risks of agricultural production. We commit to keeping members informed about successes and challenges during the growing season with a monthly member newsletter. This publication will include information about the flowers in season, a story from a survivor who helped grow your flowers, and details about other happenings on our farm.
What if I can't pick up my flowers one week?
We understand that life events — illness, vacations, emergencies — happen. Unfortunately, given our production schedule, we are unable to reschedule your pickup day or location after your membership has begun. If you’re unable to pick up your flowers one week, please send a friend or family member to pick up the flowers in your place. We donate unclaimed weekly flowers to a local senior living facility for residents to enjoy.

Is my membership tax-deductible?
Probably not. The market value of your weekly flowers exceeds the cost being charged for membership, so it’s unlikely your membership will be tax-deductible; however, we recommend speaking with a tax professional to confirm. Should you require additional information for tax purposes, please contact us.
