THE BOUNTY CSA BAG
The Bounty Bag program is a partnership between the local community and Petaluma Bounty. By joining our Bounty Bag program, you not only receive a weekly bag of our high- quality, fresh produce, but you are directly supporting our farm with a steady income that helps us grow healthy, delicious food for all.
HOW IT WORKS
Our harvest season runs 22 weeks, beginning in mid-May and lasting until the end of November (depending on the rains). A typical share feeds 2 to 4 people per week, depending on your cooking habits. Bags are available for pick-up weekly at the farm on Tuesdays. Payment is available through a variety of options including: CalFresh, WIC, cash, credit.
If you pay with CalFresh, the cost is $11 per box due to FINI funding that provides a dollar-for-dollar match. If you qualify as limited income (defined here as 200% FPL), you are eligible for the 30% reduced fee at $15.40 per box. If you’re not sure what price you qualify for, please click here for a handy flow chart! The full retail price is $22 per box. We ask people that are able to pay retail to consider making monthly payments or 2 payments per season. If you qualify for the reduced cost or CalFresh, we are happy to offer weekly payment options along with a one box deposit.
WHO IS THE BOUNTY BAG PROGRAM FOR?
Our community of course! We have a limited number of Bounty Bags available and first priority goes to low-income community members! But we often have a small number of retail level boxes available too! So if you’re looking for quality, sustainably grown produce, consider joining the Bounty Bag Program today by filling out the form below. If we don’t have Bounty Bags available, we’ll put you on a wait list or re-direct you to our farm stand or another amazing local CSA Program.
WHAT DO I GET?
Every week our members receive a box of 7–12 different vegetables, herbs, and fruit at their peak ripeness. Our orchard on the farm is bearing fruit and we also have strawberries and blueberries. Our downtown location and small scale operation make it possible for us to pick your produce at maximum ripeness and same-day freshness.You will also receive a weekly newsletter with recipes, nutrition information and a farm update.

Bounty Community Farm is a 3-acre, educational farm located in the heart of Petaluma. As part of our mission to make healthy, fresh food available to all, we are growing 40 different kinds of delicious vegetables, herbs, and fruits.
We are an educational farm that is designed to be a model of ecological health. Our diversity in crops is our greatest strength against pest and disease problems and we maintain a soil preservation practice through compost additions, cover cropping and rotations.
Our mantra is that we grow healthy soil that feeds healthy plants that nourish healthy people. We never use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, or materials not approved for Organic production.
