Blue Sky Ranch is special and unique in many ways. We have a lot of fun, but we also take our responsibility as growers of your food very seriously. If you sign up with the CSA, we strongly encourage you to attend one of the tours. We have found that connecting to your farmers and putting your feet on the ground here, adds a lot of value to the overall experience. Especially if it is your first time trying CSA. We keep it real simple here. We grow a wide variety of high energy, super nutritious food. We get all the food into boxes by Saturday morning with the help of some amazing volunteers. Every Friday night, we post recipes that are specifically for what is in the box that week. Boxes get picked up at the farm and at pick up locations all around San Diego on Saturday.

Our customers love the convenience of our self-serve pick up locations. Some members leave a check in the payment box on site. Many make their payments online; both are available. There is no commitment to join the CSA. You can sign up for 4 boxes and be part of the CSA for as little as 114 dollars. We certainly welcome volunteers, but it is not at all expected. We have quarterly volunteer work parties for members who want to get their hands dirty and connect to the land, other members, and the people who farm it.
We use a web-based software program called Farmigo to help manage the financial interactions between our customers and our farm. Farm At Blue Sky Ranch CSA members have online access to their own accounts from which members can view/edit their contact information, current subscription options, put their box on a vacation hold, view their current account balance and history, and view directions and instructions for their pick-up location. Members can also order extra items from our web store online. We accept payment via paper check, e-check or credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover). Payment creates an account balance from which we subtract boxes received weekly. Members can elect to sign up for automatic payments at any time during their CSA membership by selecting the Automatic Payment Service on the payment page.
