A Word from…..
Ellen Fackelton Geyer
Founder and Coordinator of Agriberry Farm’s Williamsburg Area CSA
Will, Ellen and Agri-Johnny
Greetings from the Williamsburg Agriberry CSA! I am Ellen Frackelton and have been involved with my family’s berry and fruit farm since I was in middle school. Starting in 2010, I began bringing Agriberry fruit to the Williamsburg Farmers Market. In 2011 I was excited to launch an Agriberry CSA here in Williamsburg.
As a teacher and a new mother, I am especially excited to be able to help provide my Williamsburg-area neighbors with the healthiest, easiest-to-use food in the world–fresh fruit!
On behalf of myself, my husband Will, our new son Johnny, and the rest of the Fackelton-Geyer gang, thank you for your interest in our family’s farm and CSA. I look forward to seeing you on Tuesdays and helping to provide you and your family with the best in locally grown produce. We deeply appreciate your support of local, family farming, good nutrition and educating area young people through your participation in our CSA.
Please contact me with any questions!
Information about the Williamsburg CSA
Agriberry Farm’s Williamsburg CSA membership costs $540 for the 18-week season, which can be pro-rated (less $30/week) once the season has begun. The balance must be paid in full before the first pick-up of the season. CSA members pre-purchase a weekly share of our 18-week harvest season. We do our best to provide you with the finest fruit available, but the forces of nature can be unpredictable. Our members share in that risk.
How to Join
Review the information on this page, click here to download and print our brief application form, then complete and submit the application along with your payment. Once we receive your application we will be back in touch to confirm your participation .
Williamsburg Pick-Up Time and Location
Tuesday, 4:30-6:30 pm, 113 Dogwood Drive, Williamsburg (off of Lake Powell Road)
Williamsburg CSA Fast Facts
New members can join during the season (April-September) as space permits, and fees can be pro-rated.
Members receive an e-mail each week during the season. E-mails include news and photos from the farm, updates on crop conditions, and details as to what will be in that week’s share.
A weekly share typically includes six “units” of fruit–often four units (pints, half-pints or quarts) of berries, and an additional two units of other fruits (or early spring veggies) to add variety and nutritional diversity.
You can expect a minimum of 12 to 18 half-cup servings in each share.
You may split your membership with another individual or family. We ask that you designate a “primary” member’s last name for our records, because our site lists are alphabetized by last name. The details of how your spit your share are up to you, and let us know how we can help.
Vacations and Missed Shares
During the season, you can take one week of vacation whenever you wish. Just email us two weeks ahead and let us know whether you want to receive a double share the week before you leave or the week after you return. If you are in town but know you can’t make your regular pick-up for a particular week, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org at least three days before to make alternate arrangements.
While we will do our best to accommodate you, cash refunds will not be offered for missed pickups, and unclaimed shares will be donated.
Another exciting aspect of the Williamsburg CSA is our partnership with J. Blaine Blayton Elementary School. Five percent of our Williamsburg CSA profits will go to the Blayton Garden Club to help with the amazing projects they have planned to help teach elementary students about agriculture and nutrition.
