Community Supported Agriculture: CSA

A CSA is essentially a relationship between a community and a farm. By paying a one-time subscription fee, members will enjoy a weekly box of vegetables for the duration of the growing season (25 weeks). This system benefits members and farmers alike. Members will relish the experience of eating new, unique veggies within their corresponding season, having a deeper understanding of Central Illinois agriculture, and learning about and supporting local food in a community environment. 

Our CSA will be changing slightly this upcoming year, we are now making it 20 weeks long for our Peoria Riverfront Market members. We are also increasing our prices in order to account for inflation, increased prices for our supplies, and paying our employees a living wage. Additionally, we will no longer offer a West Peoria pickup.

East Peoria Full CSA Share: $550 for 25 weeks of delicious vegetables that can feed from 3-4 people a week depending on how much you cook. We also have a payment plan that allows you to pay $275 now and $275 at the first pick-up.

East Peoria Half CSA Share: $330 for 13 weeks of vegetables. Pick up full CSA share biweekly. This option is good for folks who don't cook as much, are experimenting with the CSA, or don't have time to pick up every week but also want local food. 

Peoria Riverfront Full CSA Share: $450 for 19 weeks of delicious vegetables that can feed from 3-4 people a week depending on how much you cook.

PLEASE NOTE: Prices through our online store include online fees. If you wish to surpass these fees, please send a check to the farm for the prices above. Checks can be made payable to Down River Farm and sent to 3404 Springfield Road, East Peoria.
