The CSA season will be divided into 4 x 8 week periods as follows: October/November (Fall) , December/January (Winter Early), February/March (Winter Late), and April/May (Spring). CSA boxes may be pre-ordered from each period. Extra items, when available, may be added to boxes.

As for Kai-Kai Farm we have no work requirement. September 24, 2014 will be our first volunteer orientation and this will enable "work-for-produce".
With the inclusion of two great ecommerce service providers, Local Food Marketplace and Small Farm Central, Carl's "food hub" project has begun. We encourage other local food producers to join our hub and market their products through our CSA member network.
We offer two types of CSA memberships: Drop or Delivery. We can not serve large areas without your help and encourage the establishment of pickup locations to reduce wasting resources.
DELIVERY ZONE: Martin County, Northern Palm Beach County, and Singer Island.

Finally it should be said there are numerous distributors of produce masquerading as CSA's. These folks assemble produce but rarely (if ever) grow it. The logistics of this often mean the produce is not as fresh compared to KAI-KAI's. Also some distributors may not have a cold-chain produce storage and delivery system. Some produce is extremely temperature sensitive. Some distributors do not understand ethylene gas emissions and the damage caused by fruits and veggies in close proximity to each other. Wherever you purchase your produce compare its shelf life to KAI KAI's. We guarantee ours will outlast the competition. In the long run this saves you $ because less rotten produce goes in the trash.
