We welcome you to join our CSA ! We offer vegetable, fruit & flower shares!
By purchasing a share in our CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, we form a relationship with you and you get to know the people who grow your food. Becoming a member of the farm makes a statement for supporting local family farms that grow the highest quality food.
Your support is also a financial commitment. It enables us to prepare for the needs of the farm so that we can all enjoy the bounty for years to come. Depending on the Shares that you choose, from June until October members will receive a 5/9 bushel box, equivalent to a full grocery bag from the farm's bounty of fresh vegetables that are ripe and ready to be harvested that week.
We strive to provide a generous supply of incredibly fresh, seasonal vegetables each week, but since nature has no guarantees we cannot offer any either. CSA members experience the ebb and flow of seasonal vegetable farming. If a crop is plentiful and doing well we will be able to share plenty of this bounty. If a crop is not so abundant there will be less of it in the CSA share.
Each week members will receive a weekly email newsletter that will give insight as to what happened on the farm that week, what produce you will receive a few pictures and plenty of cooking and preparation methods. Your CSA share will include vegetables that you are familiar with and some that you may not be.
If at any time you won't be able to make your pickup, you can have a friend or neighbor pickup your share in your place. Otherwise, send us an email and we'll gladly hold your box for a few days in the farm stand fridge for that week.
We are unable to give any credit for missed shares.
