CSA BUCKET SHARE -~ 4 Week Subscription
4 WEEK BUCKET SHARE
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A flower CSA works the same way as popular vegetable CSAs. A customer/member typically joins in the winter/early spring before the growing season starts. Their payment helps our farm buy seeds and other supplies for the coming year.
In return for your "investment", members receive a weekly bucket of premium, organically-grown flowers at a far better price than if purchased at retail. When you join Love ‘n Fresh Flowers' CSA, you’ll be getting only blooms that have been grown without any synthetic chemicals in a field where nurturing nature through biodiversity and sustainable practices is top priority. We grow our flowers right here in Philly (in the Upper Roxborough neighborhood), and they are usually picked the same morning as members get their share! This is in stark contrast to the half-dead flowers at the supermarket that have been shipped in from South America or Africa and were picked several days, even weeks, earlier.
OUR FLOWER CSA WAS VOTED "BEST IN PHILLY" IN 2017 FOR A GIFT SUBSCRIPTION!
How It Works
Place your order here for the share type (bucket vs. bouquet) of your choice. Please look at all the choices in the store to make sure you are selecting the one you want. Once we receive your order, we will then get in touch with you via email (within 48 hours) to confirm the following information:
- Start Month: Typically you can choose to begin your 4 week share the first Tuesday of the month in either in May, June, July, August, or September. Months the CSA is available may change each season as we determine our other events and commitments.
- Pick Up Location: Members will pick up their share of flowers each week from one of two designated locations. You can choose to pick up your share from either Woodmere Art Museum in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia (zip 19118) or Palmer Distilling Co in the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia (zip 19128)
- Pick Up Day and Time: Pick up each week is on Tuesdays between 4:30 PM and 7:00 PM.
- Gift Card: If you are giving a CSA share as a gift, we can provide a lovely card explaining your thoughtful and unique gift. Let us know if you would prefer a paper or electronic card and where to send it.

Bucket shares are not pre-arranged, but rather an assortment of flowers and foliage that members use to create bouquets at home.
Bucket shares are stuffed to the brim and come in a 6 quart bucket that you return each week when you get your new batch of blooms. We clean the buckets and re-use them for the CSA throughout the season so there is no wasted packaging. The flowers in this share are loose stems, meaning they are not arranged in a bouquet. (With advance notice, members have the option to add a bouquet to their share any week if they need more flowers for a special occasion or gift.)
The bucket share is a great choice for members who love to create their own floral art and have multiple bouquets around the house. It is also great for local restaurants that want to fill bud vases on their table and have flowers on the hostess station.

You can share your share!! Since our flowers last so long, sometimes you don't need a new batch every week or you might be going on vacation during the summer. You can absolutely have someone else pick up your share whenever you like. Consider splitting it with a friend where you alternate weeks.
Buy more than one share for a longer season of blooms! If you'd like to have more than 4 weeks of flowers from our farm in your home or business, simply order more than one share here in the online shop and we will coordinate with you to receive your share throughout the summer. For example, order 2 shares and get 8 weeks of flowers!

As another perk, CSA Members receive 20% off any workshops at our farm throughout the season they are signed up as a member!
Past Members Said
"Would definitely do this again next year. I received many compliments for my flowers from family and friends. It was lovely having fresh flowers throughout the house. I just purchased a new kitchen table and could not wait until it was delivered to put my flowers on the table. Cannot wait until next year!"
"Each week there were a few flowers that took my breath away. This week it was apricot colored zinnias and a heavenly blue flower I don't know the name of. I put them together and the result was stunning! what I enjoyed most about my experience was the exposure to so many new flowers and realizing as the summer went on that I love flowers now even more than I did before!"
"I couldn't grow my own flowers this year, and I was so happy to get Jennie's buckets every week of great, fresh flowers. They are much more pleasant to work with than flowers from the store."
