Ever wondered how Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) works? It’s simple yet incredibly rewarding! We have outlined the simple steps for how to access our CSA and others like it. If you have any questions, please reach out! CSA Infographic

Become a CSA member and embark on a journey of fresh, farm-to-table goodness. With each week’s harvest, you’ll receive a box packed with an exciting variety of seasonal vegetables, along with optional add-ons like eggs, flowers, or mushrooms. It’s a delicious way to support local agriculture while nourishing your body and soul.

CSA shares are weekly distributions of our farm products throughout the harvest season. Our main season is June – September.

Shares can be picked up at our farm in Berkley on Sundays 9-12, or at our booth at the Hingham Farmers Market on Saturdays 9-1.

If you need to skip a week and let us know in advance, that is fine, and please let us know if you’d like a double share the next week or want some other plan. If you don’t let us know in advance but don’t pick up your share, we will donate it.

Benefits of CSAs
For us: CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”. When you buy your share at the beginning of the growing season, we farmers are more able to predict sales and cash flow, which allows us to plan ahead on our seed and labor expenses. When we have unexpectedly successful or unsuccessful plantings of a certain crop, we have a community behind us taking on some of that risk (and the reward of unexpected October strawberries, if we have another fall like the last one!).

For you: CSAs allow you to eat great, local, healthy produce and support the agricultural and environmental practices that you want to see — you vote with your dollars! You also know where your food is coming from, and can often go check out the farm and basically watch your food be created! Our CSAs also include recipes that include not just the produce in your weekly share, but also other locally, seasonally available food; we source a minimum of 80% of our ingredients for the recipe of the week from our farm and the other vendors at our farmers markets.

    What is CSA Week?
    National CSA Week, observed from February 19th to 25th this year, is an opportunity to recognize and promote Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). CSAs are a unique model of food production and distribution where members of the community directly support local farms by purchasing shares of the harvest in advance. In return, they receive a weekly or bi-weekly supply of fresh, seasonal produce throughout the growing season.

    Our Commitment to Community and Sustainability
    At Stargazer Hollow Farm, we’re deeply committed to producing high-quality, heirloom produce using sustainable, earth-friendly methods. Our mission is to bring the community closer to the source of their food while fostering a deeper connection to the land.

    • Complimentary Week of Egg Share: Enjoy the richness and flavor of free-range duck eggs, sourced directly from our farm. As part of this promotion, new members will receive a free week of our Egg Share, adding an extra layer of freshness to their CSA experience.
    • Savory Week of Mushroom Add-On Share: Elevate your culinary creations with a savory week of our Mushroom Add-On Share, featuring gourmet culinary mushrooms sourced from McGuire’s Mushrooms a local gem renowned for their dedication to sustainable mushroom cultivation.

    👩🏻‍🌾 Exciting Partnership Announcement! 🍄

    Stargazer Hollow Farm is thrilled to unveil a new chapter for our new local, naturally-grown community supported agriculture shares with the introduction of a Mushroom Add-On Share in our 2024 CSA program, crafted in collaboration with McGuire’s Mushrooms!
    colorful fresh culinary mushrooms growing in blocks
    McGuire’s Mushrooms, a celebrated local gem in Hingham that has been featured in Edible Boston Magazine and beyond, is renowned for their dedication to growing high-quality, sustainable fungi. From lion’s mane to oyster and shiitake varieties, their offerings promise a culinary adventure that elevates your dining experience. For folks who have made, eaten, or been inspired by our recipes of the week or Meghan’s postings, nearly 100% of the mushrooms we’ve used in the last two seasons have come from our friends at McGuire’s!

    Up your locavore game this year with our produce plus other add-ons from our farm, including a fresh Egg Share featuring free-range eggs weekly (a full season egg share can expect to receive duck, chicken, turkey, and quail eggs, and if we can snag the eggs from the geese, perhaps those too – reaching under a broody goose is a little more death-defying than you may think!), and a vibrant Flower Share, curated with a weekly bouquet of about 12-15 stems plus greens. Additionally, don’t miss out on our new Friends of the Farm Share, where each week, you’ll receive a small gift from the farm – a token of our gratitude for your support. Check out this page for more details on how you can enrich your CSA experience with these delightful add-ons and savor the tastes of farm-fresh produce! 🥚 🍄🌷✨

    7. To assemble the lasagna: Add 1 cup of pumpkin sauce to the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan. Cover with 4-5 lasagna noodles.
    8. Spread 1/2 the ricotta mixture over noodles. Add 1/2 of sausage mixture on top of the ricotta. Cover with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Pour 1 cup pumpkin sauce over the mozzarella.
