2021 CSA Season
Love Letter Farm packs weekly boxes of high-quality, fresh, seasonal veggies. Each box is a lovingly tended snapshot showcasing the amazing range of colors and flavors that vegetables bring. In addition to market staples, CSA members get to try out some of the experimental and unique items not always available at a supermarket. Love Letter CSA members also get the benefit of knowing exactly where their produce is coming from, as well as the knowledge that they are directly supporting regenerative, ecological agricultural practices. Shares are available for pick-up or delivered to your door.
Ways to get involved:
- Support the farm up-front and commit to receiving vegetables for the entire 25 weeks (save $50)
- Buy into one or more of the three seasonal shares described below (save $10/share)
- Pay by the week (set up a weekly payment plan, or watch for weekly availability)
- Donate to the scholarship program to provide fresh weekly vegetables to someone experiencing food insecurity

How to get your share:
This year we have three locations for picking up your CSA. Your share will be pre-packed in a reusable tote-bin, which you can either take with you and return the following week, or be prepared with your own produce bag/cooler to transfer the vegetables into.
- Sunday: Early pick-up from 10am-2pm at the Montavilla Farmer’s Market (https://www.montavillamarket.org)
- Tuesday: 5pm-7pm near SE 33rd and Ankney
- Tuesday: 5pm-7pm at 8316 N Dwight Ave, Portland OR
Deliveries go out on Tuesdays, generally between 11AM-4PM. Totes will be left on your porch or other convenient area. Home delivery is currently available for no charge in inner SE, NE, and N Portland. A $25 flat fee covers delivery to outside neighborhoods for pre-paid shares. Because of the complications with weekly share logistics, a $5 weekly delivery fee is added to each share in outside neighborhoods.
