CSA in Chicago and Suburbs or Home Delivery

Nichols Farm Fruit and Vegetable CSA 

Becoming a CSA member is the most convenient way to receive the very best of the farmers markets, delivered to over 40 Chicaoland locations or directly to your home. Every week you will receive a bountiful share of the finest seasonal fruits and vegetables we grow.  A standard share will contain around 10 different items in usable amounts each week.  Shares are harvested and packed fresh the day before.  Every item in your share is grown by us on our farm.  We offer several different share sizes to accomodate your household.  Every week contains different items and by the end of a season you will have tried at least 150 different varieties of produce.  


We have been growing the finest produce for Chicagolands best chefs and farmers markets for over 38 years.  CSA shareholders are our best customers and always recieve shares full of the best crops we grow.  Everything we produce is grown using certified sustainable growing practices, so you know it is safe, clean, and grown with respect for our environment.

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it means that you become a shareholder in what is being done on the farm. By purchasing a CSA, you are buying a share of the crops that we grow. Purchasing a CSA share is a great way to get the highest quality, locally grown produce at an affordable price. It is also a wonderful way to support a successful, small family farm that adheres to practices that have the health of our land and our customers in mind. The respectful approach to farming that’s practiced means that our land and environment will be safe for many generations to come.
