    About UsAbout UsAbout UsAbout Us

    Champlain Orchards is located in Shoreham, VT overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. We are a diversified farm employing over 50 staff members in our busiest season.

    round.

    Community Supported AgricultureCommunity Supported AgricultureCommunity Supported AgricultureCommunity Supported Agriculture, or CSACSACSACSA, is a way

    for community members to have a direct relationship

    with the people who grow their food. The benefits of

    your enrollment in our CSA program are numerous.

    With your membership, you are not only supporting

    our farm and helping to promote local agriculture,

    but you are also making a commitment to eating

    healthily and locally. As a member of our CSA, you

    are fostering a more direct relationship between

    yourself and the people producing your food. We

    welcome our CSA members to get involved in the

    program. We are always in need of volunteers to

    help coordinate drop-sites and advertise our CSA to

    new members. If you are interested in getting more

    involved, contact us at 802-897-2777 or e-mail

    Im recommending this CSA to all my friends.

    I love the fresh, organic food and the ability to

    assist a local farm. With your specialty items

    and informative newsletter, you made it fun!

    Our CSA Share is unique in that the total price includes

    products other than fresh fruits and vegetables from our farm.

    We augment your weekly share with our own farm-produced

    value-added items such as cider and apple butter and we also

    partner with other regional producers to include in your

    shares items such as bread, cheese and eggs.

  • We encourage you to sign up even if you've missed the

    starting date. We will deduct the cost of the week(s) you've

    missed.

    Our farm participates in the Vermont Farm Share Pro-

    gram. This program subsidizes CSA shares for our

    neighbors who otherwise could not afford to join our

    CSA. Through the program, NOFA-VT will match each

    dollar that our CSA raises to offer reduced rates to in-

    come eligible individuals and families. Your contribu-

    tions are tax-deductible if you make checks payable to

    NOFA-VT. Please e-mail

    elissa@champlainorchards.com if you wish to donate

    or want more information on the program. Thank you!
