Share option (check one). Produce will be available for 24 weeks beginning Tuesday May 20, 2014. The program ends for 2014 on Tuesday October 28.  Cool Beans offers a winter CSA with limited memberships which are offered to current Beans before being made available to anyone else.
___ Full share, $500
___ Small share, $300

Additional egg option – check if desired:
___ One dozen free-range eggs per week added to order, $86 / 24 weeks
___ Half dozen free range eggs added to order each week, $50 / 24 weeks.

Total share cost ____________

All pickups are on TUESDAY – check your choice:
___ Stoney Creek Valley Farm 1170 Stoney Creek Rd Dauphin, after 3 pm
___ Harrisburg (Penbrook area, 304 N 30thSt), 3:30 – 8 pm
___ Camp Hill, 129 19th St, 4-8 pm
___ Mechanicsburg, 108 E. Locust St, 4:30-8 pm
___ New Cumberland (516 2nd St) after 7 pm (or at the NCTB rehearsal)

A $50 check is required to hold your spot. I do expect to sell out this year, so I recommend reserving your spot early. You may choose to pay in full at the time of registration or you can pay the remaining balance after your deposit in two payments, one at the end of February and one at the end of April. Please make checks out to Katie College, and mail them with this application to Katie College, 1170 Stoney Creek Road, Dauphin, PA, 17018.

I agree to pick up produce at the agreed upon place and time. If produce is not picked up within the stated time limits and prior arrangements have not been made, I understand that week’s share will be forfeit.

I will make prior arrangements for vacation dates at least one week in advance. I understand that I may also make arrangements for a friend to pick up my share in my absence.

If I opt for on-farm pickup, I agree to respect the property and livestock of the farmer.

I understand that variety of produce received depends on growing conditions that vary from season to season and that the risks and benefits of the harvest are shared.

Shareholder’s Signature ______________________________

Date _________________

Copies of this contract and a receipt for your payment will be mailed to you.

For information which wouldn’t fit on the contract, but which I’d really like you to know before you sign up, please visit the Cool Beans website at and read about the plans in more detail.

    Katie, I had emailed you about a month ago and asked if 1/2 shares were still available. You replied with a “yes” and said that you would send us infor and an Agreement. Haven’t seen anything yet and didn’t want to miss out on the share. Our address is 697 Old Limekiln Lane, Newport, PA 17074. Let me know. Thank so much, Trish.

    ack! I thought I mailed you a brochure, my apologies. One will be in tomorrow’s mail. Or you can print out the contract from the top of the home page of the website. We do still have spaces open for 2011.

    Hi Katie! I am too late for 2011 shares as I just heard about you today from one of my Kindergarten parents. Looking forward to next year, when is a good time to buy shares with you before it is sold out? Also, do you have any brochures and papers that I could read a little more about cool beans? Thanks!

    Christina, check back with us in December, that’s when we’ll get things rolling for the new year. The info on the website far more in depth than our brochures, which can pretty much be summed up as “please go to the website for detailed information”!


  8. Charity says:

    I am intereseted in becoming a member of the Cool Beans CSA but I am not sure how to go about this. Any help would be great. Also am I still able to get into the 2011 membership or do I have to wait until 2012? Thanks for the information!

    Unfortunately, we have no openings for this year. We will open the 2012 memberships just before Christmas of 2011 – hope to hear from you then!

  10. katie says:

    Too late for this year, but mark your calendar and check back in December of 2011, when we will open for 2012 memberships!

  11. Leigh Twiford says:

    We were Cool Beans and Meat people last year. I signed up for Cool Beans 2012, but did not hear anything from you. The first delivery is next week, do you have us on your list?


  12. katie says:

    Leigh! We’ve been wondering if you’d be signing up. Our records do not show that we’ve received anything from you, though. PLease email me at, and we’ll get this straightened out. I’m not seeing a full message from you; I’m assuming what comes after the “…” is that you did not hear from us. We’d love to have the Twifords back in the bean patch this year!

  13. Chris says:

    I haven’t seen any updates in awhile. Are we still a go for next Tuesday being our first pick-up day?

  14. katie says:

    Yep. Just swamped.

  15. Sally says:

    Are there any spots left for 2014? I’d love to get a full share plus a full egg share if it’s available.
