Submit A PayPal Payment

Submitting Payment For Your CSA

Thanks so much for joining our CSA program and stopping by to submit payment on your shares! As a four-season farm, it’s crucial for our members to stay up to date with their deposits and payment plans. Purchasing seeds, planning labor budgets, planting, harvesting, and maintaining daily operations is an expansive (and expensive) endeavor, and we greatly appreciate your cooperation in helping to make it all happen!

Below, you’ll find information on types of payment we accept and payment plan options you have as a CSA member. Not sure what your balance is? Send us an email at thefarmers@redfirefarm.com or give us a call at (413) 467-7645 and we’ll be happy to help!

Types of Accepted Payment

  • Checks: This is our preferred method of payment for most CSA shares, as it contributes funds directly to the farm. For convenience’s sake, we ask that checks include a note specifying the name on the CSA account for which it should be applied. Please do not bring check payments to your CSA pickup! Instead, they should be mailed to: 184 Meadow Road in Montague, MA 01351.
  • PayPal: While we cannot process credit/debit card payments directly, we do offer online payment via PayPal. You do not have to be a registered PayPal member to submit a payment, as you will be prompted to check out as a guest and manually input your card information if you do not log in. Please keep in mind, however, that PayPal charges the farm a 3% fee with each transaction (which equates to almost $25 on an $800 share), so we strongly prefer to receive mailed checks, when possible. Thanks!
  • SNAP/HIP: We warmly welcome CSA payment via SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and have partnered with the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) to ensure those receiving monthly benefits are able to join our CSA program. Via the program, funds are automatically deducted from members’ accounts and applied to their CSA balance. SNAP forms can be found at the top of our CSA signup page here.

Payment Plan Options

While many members elect to pay their CSA balance in full at time of signup (and thanks so much to those who do!), we understand that this is not a viable option for all. To this end, we offer a few payment plan options to make the cost of CSA membership a little more manageable.

  • Option 1:  $100 deposit due at time of signup with remaining balance paid by June 1st before the start of the CSA season.
  • Option 2:  $100 deposit due at time of signup with remaining balance paid in equal installments on the first of each month through the end of the CSA season (we’ll send out reminder emails).

Still not sure if you can make paying for a CSA membership work for you? Please don’t hesitate to reach out to thefarmers@redfirefarm.com so we can try to work out a custom plan with you. Our goal to provide fresh, organic vegetables for everyone!
