We proudly announce our Whitewood CSA Subscription. As most of you all know CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Over the years Heather and I have been jokingly calling this concept "Community Supported Cider" making it CSC. The more recognizable CSA wins out, and I suppose CSA could also stand for Community Supported Artisan.
Sign ups for our 2014-2015 Community Supported Cider has begun.
Whitewood Cider Company proudly announce our third season of Community Supported Cider Subscriptions.
From vegetables to chickens, eggs, beef, pork, turkey, you name it; we have been chronic CSA subscribers and small producer supporters ourselves over the years. We've invested pay it forward style for near a decade and we love that it provides an opportunity to smaller producers with sometimes limited resources. To be truthful, we know we get the better of the deal when it comes to product quality. Our CSA has also been a terrific and fun way to involve friends, new and old, family, neighbors, and our extended Puget Sound community during our formative years.
What started as a grand project as a way to help ease some of our first year's fruit expenses continues to do just that helping us develop strong ties to a handful of select Northwest orchards. It is difficult to imagine just what we would have done without this support. Our CSC club is 3 years strong and over the years our member’s have made a positive contribution each year to our ability to produce some of the Northwest’s finest ciders.
Members receive a 15% discount off of any direct sales cider all year round. 20% off our merchandise. A 2014 Holiday delivery/shipment. Shipping costs may apply depending on location. Current members always have first right of refusal at next year's CSC club spots.

2013-2014 CSC "Community Supported Cider" Program
We are currently working on our 2014-2015 CSC delivery/shipment schedule. We are making plans for a Fall (2014), Winter (Late 2014), Spring (2015) and Summer (2015) which will include our flagship ciders, and some seasonal releases mixed in. Our third year should be our most exciting yet.
We base our subscriptions off a full case of 12 750ml bottles. We will also operate this program much like a wine club and CSA members receive special member discounts on future purchases.
Half share subscriptions are $95 and will be the equivalent value of 6 750ml bottles or more. Full share subsciptions are $185 and the equivalent of 12 750ml bottles or more. We plan our blends very carefully but we also like to let the ciders speak. Sometimes certain fermentations will take on a life of their own and become a single varietal and/or limited release. It's what we enjoy about making traditional ciders seasonally but that also makes it hard to know what we will release and not release longterm. Actually quantity of cider will depend on bottle volume and value of future cider releases.
Thanks! We appreciate your interest in our cider and helping make our 2014-2015 season of ciders the best yet.
