Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

2020 MAIN SEASON VEGETABLE SHARES

For a smaller household of 1-2 people or those that don’t cook at home every day.

Our standard share. For a household of 2 - 4 people that cook at home regularly.

For larger households of 5+ or those that are avid cooks and/or will freeze, can, preserve extras.

The CSA harvest season is 26 weeks from the end of May until the week prior to Thanksgiving. When you join, you’ll set your vegetable preferences and each week through the season, a customized share will be generated for you depending on those tastes and the farm’s harvest. Every week, you will get a preview of your share and have a chance to swap items in and out of your share from the harvest list…all before you pickup!

Each week your farmers aim to harvest 8 - 15 crops with at least one being: a fresh salad green (head lettuce, arugula, etc), a cooking green (kale, chard, etc), a root crop (beets, carrots, etc), an allium (onions, leeks, etc), and usually a few fruiting crops (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, squash, etc).

CSA
stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSAs are designed to provide a close connection between a farm, the farmers, and a community of members. The farm and farmers feed the members by providing a weekly share of produce. The members financially support the farm and become an integral part of small scale, local agriculture.

Why Join a CSA?

For our members
CSA members receive fresh, in season, locally grown food. All of our vegetables are grown on our farm without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Members have the satisfaction of taking an active role in preserving farmland and supporting local, family farmers.

For the farmers

A CSA is a farmer-friendly model. The farmer develops a stable, long-term relationship with reliable members. This makes it easier for us to plan each year's crops because we know what, and how much of each, crop we’ll need to grow. The CSA model provides the farmers with the foundation for a viable business, an essential element in sustainability and allows the farmers time to run a truly vibrant farm.

For the land

Healthy soil grows healthy plants, and healthy plants grow healthy people. Just as plants grown on rich soil have fewer diseases, pests and growth problems, people who eat this nutritious food experience radiant health.

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
Fresh, certified organic vegetables all grown on our farm.

Complimentary u-pick crops! U-pick crops typically include: strawberries, peas, hot peppers, culinary herbs, green beans, cherry tomatoes, and cutting flowers.

Discounts on bulk vegetables, like canning tomatoes, storage beets, or other bountiful crops.

A connection to the farm through weekly farm updates that include you in the process of growing your food. Members also get open door access to walk the farm, do u-pick, visit the animals, or just spend the time enjoying the land.

Pickup shares on the farm or at one of the delivery locations convenient to you or at no additional charge.
