How Does Our CSA Work?
At Moon River Ranch, we offer a 20-week CSA from mid-June through October. There are two vegetable share sizes to choose from, and we deliver to 5 pick-up locations in Bonner, Clinton, Deer Lodge, Philipsburg and Drummond.
We grow most of the produce for the CSA ourselves as well as partner with other local farms to supplement our shares and to offer fresh, local share add-ons such as honey, goats milk soap, jam, jellies and sauces made from farm fresh ingredients.
Our shares are pre-boxed for quick and convenient pick-up during weekly 2-hour pick-up windows, making a Moon River Ranch CSA the easiest way to get healthy, farm fresh produce for your family – and better yet, at a reasonable price!

We offer two different vegetable share options to help you choose the right share for you!
A large CSA share supplies the most variety and quantity and is ideal for a family of 4, or a smaller family that cooks frequently or would like to freeze or jar extra produce to enjoy through-out the year.
A small CSA share is ideal for a vegetable loving couple or small family. Some folks in the past have found this share is a great option to explore what a CSA is all about. It is a great learning experience for first time CSA members letting them eat healthy and support a small family farm.
Want more info about what to expect in your share? Here are examples of shares in both sizes as well as more info about what produce we grow.
Our add-ons are a great way to get more of the local, farm fresh produce you want for your family. You may purchase multiple add-ons, or choose to receive just add-ons without a vegetable share! Please note that add-ons, like fruit shares, are not customizable.
We offer two convenient options for payment:
1. Pay in Full at time of sign-up. With this option, you can pay with a card right through the website, or send a check in the mail, the good old fashioned way.
2. Payment Plan. Your share total will be broken up into two payments. You on our CSA page we have "First Payment" and "Last Payment" CSA Shares You will pay 50% at the time of signup, another 50% by May 1, 2021.
NEW for the 2021 season, we hope to offer the option to pay for shares using SNAP/EBT! If you would like to pay using this option, please reach out to us! If these options do not work for you, but you are interested in joining us for the season, we would be happy to discuss additional payment options. Please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
