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.

    Special Promotion for CSA Week
    To celebrate National CSA Week 2024, we’re excited to offer an exclusive promotion for all new sign-ups to our produce share program. From February 19th to 25th, anyone who signs up for a produce share with us will receive two incredible bonuses:

    • 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.

    colorful fresh culinary mushrooms growing in blocks

    👩🏻‍🌾 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! 🥚 🍄🌷✨

    Note: This is our Stargazer Hollow blog; for official news from HFM please always check the official Hingham Farmers Market website here.

    Starting this Saturday, August 15, the long-awaited return of a more typical walk-up Hingham Farmers Market will be back!

    The market takes place every Saturday in the Station Street Lot at 95 Station Street, Hingham, MA from 9AM to 1PM rain or shine.  See this article in the Hingham Anchor for more information on the overall market plan.

    Social Distancing Precautions

    Safety is of the utmost concern! Foot traffic will be one-way and capacity will be monitored to ensure appropriate distancing is possible.  Masks are required, and vendors will be wearing masks and gloves.

    Please keep in mind:

    • To ensure that produce is not touched, we will have our produce display set back from the front of our tent
      • I will be happy to show you the tomatoes and let you pick your favorite by pointing!
    • We will continue selling as many items as possible by the “each” or by the “bag” instead of weighing out items
    • Touchless card payments are preferred
      • We take Square, and have both a card “tap” and a card “swipe” reader which will be regularly wiped down


    Pre-Orders Are Still Available

    We, as well as most other vendors, are continuing to support pre-orders which can be picked up directly at our booth — we will have your order pre-bagged and labeled and set safely aside for you.

    Our pre-orders will be restocked every Sunday for the following week, and our pre-order site is: https://stargazerhollow.square.site/ 

    At current time of printing, all vendor pre-order information can be found on the HFM site here.


    SNAP is Available, with Matching Funds

    With the return of the walk-up market comes the return of SNAP tokens! There will be a tent for SNAP up ahead of the entrance, which will allow exchange of SNAP funds for tokens which can be redeemed to vendors for food items.  

    Please see this article in the Hingham Anchor for more info.

    Hello, friends! Please join us virtually for an online demo of the refrigerator pickling method on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at 2PM EST.

    This is the link to the online event registration page: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/refrigerator-pickling-demo-by-meghan-from-stargazer-hollow-farm-tickets-113926408956

    Last night there was a powerful and sudden storm that centered on our neighboring town of Westwood.

    Our farm had significant flooding, best noted by the 8″ piles of woodchips stacking up in some areas of our garden, having been washed out from between our raised rows.  

    The most damaged crops that we can tell so far are the corn, sunflowers, lilies, and snap peas — not surprising, as these are all plants that you would expect to be damaged by heavy winds, but sad nonetheless.

    We can’t yet tell what the impact to some of our other plants, like our tomatoes and cucumbers, will be.  They were displaced and sitting in standing water and the rain continues on today.  Potatoes seem to also have some damage that we’ll need to dive into to determine.

    Nature is such a powerful force in farming. 

    Just a few days ago, we were sharing with customers that we were having a hard time with some of our crops due to lack of rain, and our part of Massachusetts was officially in a moderate drought, as has recently happened year after year.  Then, with a single night of heavy rains, we have flooding so severe that local stores are still closed this morning trying to mop up, and our local hospital evacuated patients. 

    As the rain lightens up today, we’ll be out to evaluate and salvage things.  

    Thank you all for your support and well wishes, and I will communicate any changes to this week’s pre-orders if need be — so far, the main things that we have for sale all seem fine, it was mostly later-season crops that have severe damage.
