Why Choose CSAware

Brought to you by LocalHarvest: supporting family farmers since 1999.

Online Ordering

Your members will be able to join your CSA, purchase any add-on products you offer, manage their own account — even customize their box contents if you let them. All from their computers, tablets, or smart phones. Let them save their emails for love-notes about your food!

We support multiple payment methods, including credit cards, eCheck, PayPal, paper checks, and online EBT / SNAP.

Membership Management
Our administrative interface helps make subscription management straightforward and error-free. At a glance you’ll know who owes you money, which drop sites are full, or how many people ordered chickens this week.

With CSAware all your member, order, and delivery data is downloadable, so you can slice and dice and analize it to your heart’s content.

Delivery Scheduling

Could I get my eggs next week instead of this week?” Reschedule my box to a different day or drop? Place my subscription on hold for a couple of weeks? CSAware makes scheduling changes simple and accurate.

Get harvest numbers, plan your delivery routes, print box labels and sign-in sheets — all with one click.

Financial Reporting

Keeping an eye on the bottom line keeps you in business. We offer enough financial reports to keep most bookkeepers happy.

Your bean counter is going to love it.

Auto-Customized Subscriptions

You can offer fixed-selection subscriptions, or allow your subscribers to customize their deliveries in any of a few selection modes, including BoxBot, which builds individualized boxes factoring your weekly harvest counts, target goals, and each of your members’ preferences.

The CSAware Difference
