Home Delivery CSA

Home Delivery CSA  2021

We do not intend for this program to replace our market share program.  We will be at our markets through the 2021 season.  We do hope to expand our home delivery CSA and offer pick up at our markets and farm.

Once a week we will deliver the selected shares to your door.

Due by March 31, 2021.  

There is limited space and membership may close quickly.

Shares start the week of June 15 and run for 22 weekly deliveries until the week of October 26.  We will have other seasons available after that.

  • We offer nonrefundable payment plans.  No deliveries will be made until accounts are paid in full.
  • You can also send us the sign up sheet and a check to:                        Plato Dale Farm, 6009 Curriers Rd, Arcade, NY 14009                            Link:

Delivery $330 or $165 ($15/delivery)

  • We are offering our shares on a delivery basis.  Locals may pick up at the farm drop point that will keep the box at roadside to eliminate cross contamination with farm staff.
  • We will offer pick up at our farmers market locations for no delivery fee.
  • Please make sure you are within our delivery areas before purchasing our products or shares.  We do cover most of WNY. Please Email or Text.
  • We feel strongly that the lowest/best environmental impact for us as a farm is to deliver many shares with one vehicle.  The other option of 100+ cars to drive 30+ miles makes very little sense environmentally.
  • If you need to drive more than 15 miles to pick up your share, the cost of delivery will be more than the charge of $15, not to mention the time involved in driving.

Drop off requirements:

  • You are required to have an easily accessible large cooler that will hold the share easily.  A bushel is fairly large. 50-60 qt. cube type cooler works well.

Please note that we are not responsible for losses after delivery.

Please familiarize yourself with CSA etiquette and understanding regarding variable share sizes across the season, crop losses and the non-refundable nature of CSA shares.

Kent will not always answer his phone or return a text during the work day, it may be the next morning.

We will always do our best, we will always own it when we make mistakes. You will always be respectful and kind to Plato Dale Farm staff and ownership.

We reserve the right to change or improve the program while we are on the fly.
