What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a commitment that straightens and strengthens the connection between eaters, producers, and the land. Your upfront payment provides capital for an entire season of growth. As farmers, we cannot overstate the power of this commitment. With gratitude as our guide, we reciprocate the trust of our members with bountiful, vibrant, beautiful food, all grown with a love. Through your support of CSA, we all become the culture in local, small-scale, diversified agri-culture.
The freshest certified organic food. More veggies in your diet. Supporting local businesses. Investing in restoration and biodiversity. Knowing the face, family, and land behind your food. Diversifying your diet. Exploration of new tastes and flavors. A sun-ripend tomato. Melons that slip right off the vine. Celebrating abundance. Living the season.
What’s in a share?
You choose! Customized boxes will allow you to select preferences at sign-up and then customize each week based on our harvest. The chart below outlines approximate seasonal vegetables availability. We strive to offer one Allium in every share (garlic, onion, leeks, shallot, scallion), one annual herb (cilantro, dill, parsley, or basil), one root vegetable, one bunched green (kale or chard), and lettuce. The share is rounded out with additional vegetables from the list below. Weather, pests, and other worldly forces inevitably influence production. Want to order ‘extra’ items from the farm? With just a few clicks you’ll be able to do that and say yourself a trip to the store or farmers market! In addition to produce, members receive a weekly email update with seasonal recipe ideas and other farm related news.

Diggin Roots Farm offers a customizable 22-week CSA, from mid-June through mid-November as well as a Market Share. You identify which pick-up location and share works best for you.
- Full Share
Full shares typically contain 8-12 varieties based on your preferences, equivalent to 1-2 grocery bags of produce. For reference, our goal with a full share is to provide a four-person family enough produce for a week, though this rate of use will ultimately depend on the culinary culture of each household. These are valued at $34/week. Weekly payment plans are available.
- Partial Share
A little more than half of the produce included in a full share (6-9 items)! This share could feed one or two adults, or a family that consistently dines out. These are valued at $26/week. Weekly payment plans are available.
CSA Pick Up
There are multiple options for pick-up location:
- On-farm (9997 S Wildcat Rd, Molalla) Tuesdays from 4-7pm.
- Silverton (141 Cherry St.) Tuesdays from 4-7pm
Vacation planned? Need to change your pick-up location? No problem. You can easily reschedule your share or change pick-up locations to accommodate your busy life. We don’t want you missing out on the veggies you paid for!
Are you a farmer’s market shopper?
Consider a market share! The market share costs $400 paid in full and gives you $420 (5% discount) to spend on produce at our regular season Silverton Farmer’s Market booth from late May to early October. You choose the produce you want from our booth at the market and we’ll subtract it from your total credit. Your balance cannot roll over to another year or be used for purchases outside of our market stand. Learn more here.
