Q: What is a Workplace CSA?
A: Our Workplace CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is customized for companies looking to offer unique health & wellness benefits for their employees. Like a sponsored gym membership, companies cover the cost of a discounted CSA membership for their employees. This model helps to promote a company-wide healthy lifestyle and gives back to the local community.
Q: What seasons and shares are available for Workplace CSA members?
A: All of our CSA options are available, however, our core Workplace CSA provides participating employees with a box of veggies to bring home any 12 weeks of their choosing throughout our 24-week peak harvest season (June 8 – November 16). At a cost of $525 per share, this membership is comparable to our Peak-Season FLEX Share but offered at a 25% discount. That being said, Workplace CSA memberships are highly flexible and can be customized around your company’s needs.
Q: How many members are required for a workplace CSA?
A: Our goal is to have between 50-250 members per site.
Q: What are the perks of a Workplace CSA?
A: Other than offering special bulk-discount pricing and of course promoting overall health for your employees, our goal for our Workplace CSA is to build a lasting relationship between Siena Farms and your company through private farm tours, events, and more.
Q: How do I let my employees know about the CSA?
A: We’ll provide marketing materials, including a “tool-kit” with photos, flyers, logos, and more — anything that would be helpful for you to communicate the opportunity to your co-workers.
Q: Where do you deliver?
A: We will deliver directly to your office building. In collaboration with our courier service, we reach most addresses in the Greater Boston Area.
Q: When do you deliver?
A: Together, we’ll determine which day(s) work best for your site.
Q: How does weekly pick-up work?
A: Our driver drops off each week’s farm shares in advance of the published, member pickup time. Most sites use a “self-serve” model with farm share boxes stacked in a designated spot for members to pickup. We provide a weekly check-list (each member is responsible for checking off their name when they pick up their share). Members communicate directly with the farm about their individualized pickup schedule to work around travel and vacation dates, etc.
