What is a CSA?
A CSA, (Community Supported Agriculture) is a partnership between the farmer and the
consumer. It is a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from the farmer. It’s like having your own
little piece of farmland without the work.
How It Works
Our CSA operates as a market
CSA rather than a traditional CSA. What that means is that you decide what goes into your weekly share from the list of produce
that has been harvested for the week.
First step is to join and pay the membership share price. Next
step is the easy part. Each week during the season you come to the pick-up location and collect your produce. You customize
your weekly share to ensure that you get only what your family enjoys.
What Are The
There are several factors
that can interfere with the smooth operation of the farm. Weather, insect damage and disease are not always predictable. Although
we cannot guarantee that everything we grow will be available, we do our best to ensure that you will get a good variety of
produce to choose from. The safeguards
we have in place help to ensure our consistency in providing produce. In the event we do have a crop failure, we do not hesitate to work with other farms that share our
philosophy and beliefs to secure produce for our members.
What is in a Share?
the early season, much of your produce will include our specialty greens like lettuce, Asian greens, spinach, kale, Swiss
chard, endive, mustard greens and arugula.
In addition to our greens: radishes, onions, potatoes, beets, turnips,
kohlrabi, cabbage, peas, rhubarb.
Peak season shares will include many of those mentioned above,
as well as, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, peppers, sweet corn, edamame, squash, okra, & eggplant.
In the fall, specialty greens,
winter squash, potatoes, onions, leeks, carrots, parsnips, radishes top the list.
Fresh herbs (throughout the
season) include basil, rosemary, chives, sage, garlic chives, cilantro, French tarragon, mint.
Our winter shares are primarily
our specialty greens and storage crops, such as, winter squash, onions, cabbage, potatoes, beets, carrots, & leeks.
This year, we are hoping to offer some additional items
from local venders, such as, honey, jelly, salsa, seasonings and breads.
