How to buy our produce

CSA

Join our Farm-to-Table CSA and pick up your weekly box of fresh produce on our farm, at our Oak Park pickup site, or have it delivered to your home or office in Aurora, Brookfield, La Grange, La Grange Park, Manhattan, Morris, Naperville, Oak Park, Orland Park, Palos Hills, Palos Park, Plainfield, Riverside, and Shorewood, Illinois.

The food we produce is 100% natural, grown without man-made chemicals and completely GMO-free. We share a portion of everything we grow with local partner organizations that provide food to families in need.

We realize the concerns everyone is having about the safety of their food during these unprecedented times with COVID-19. Eating healthy fresh food is essential, so Bray Grove Farm is doing what we can to provide as much as we can in a safe manner. You can read our safe food protocols here.

Community Supported Agriculture

Our Farm-to-Table CSA consists of a group of individuals and families who pledge their support through membership in the Bray Grove Farm food community. Members, or "shareholders" of the CSA become partners with us so that they share in the risks and reap the rewards of responsible farming.

Typically, members of the CSA pledge in advance to cover the anticipated costs of the farm operation through the purchase of a "share" which, in exchange, offers them a weekly box of a wide variety of vegetables and herbs grown on the farm. In addition, members achieve the satisfaction of reconnecting to the land and being an active participant in the movement toward supporting locally-grown food. 

At its core, a CSA offers a shared commitment that is helping to build an ecologically sound agricultural system that focuses on good stewardship and helps protect the land for future generations. 

A single full share box (approximately 1-3/4 grocery bags) is usually enough to feed a family of 2-4. A partial share box (approximately 1 grocery bag) typically feeds 1-2. A full share generally has 40-50% more than a partial share and may have a larger variety. You can expect 6-10 different varieties of produce in each week's box.



Pick up of  CSA shares are on Tuesdays, beginning in mid June, from 2-7pm direct from our farm, south of the town of Morris in Grundy County, Illinois. Pick up of CSA shares at Compound Yellow in Oak Park are on Tuesday late afternoon - evening at 244 Lake Street.
