Get Fresh Produce Weekly

Published May 23, 2019

Friends enjoying fresh, local produce.

Health Promotion has partnered with Becker Farms to bring fresh, seasonal produce directly to campus. Sign up today!

UB students, staff, and faculty can buy shares from the Becker Farms Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and receive boxes of locally-sourced produce delivered directly to campus. It’s an easy, convenient way to access fresh fruits and vegetables without driving to the store. Example share contents: greens, berries, corn, potatoes, squash, garlic, onions, tomatoes, apples, peaches and more; with the amount and diversity of produce increasing from early to late summer.

CSA Share Options
Share Size Price per Week # of Boxes
Small $25.00 1
Large $42.00 2
  • A small share could be split among 2-4 people each week; making it ideal for students living with small or shared kitchen facilities.
  • Membership levels: whole season (20 weeks); auto-renews (week-by-week); or 10 deliveries (half season). Auto-renewing and 10 delivery term participants can customize their delivery dates throughout the season.
  • Participants who pre-pay receive a discount, but there is no flexibility to hold or reschedule deliveries
  • All shares are half-off with SNAP benefits
  • Payment is managed through the Becker Farms website

Delivery Dates and Locations

  • South Campus: Wednesdays from June 19 to October 30
