Spring Veggie CSA
Our vegetable CSA is meant for families and people who love home-cooking and healthy meals. Shares include a diversity of vegetables, and are sized and filled to ensure that our members will be able to use every vegetable. The specific make-up of each weekly share is dependent on what's in season & what's happening with the weather -- but, they are always full of the freshest, healthiest foods!

What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture, CSA for short, is a way for farmers and their community to form a closer relationship around food. It is a model that allows community members to purchase a "share" of the coming season's harvest ahead of time. This gives farmers the financial support they need to invest in labor and seed at the beginning of the season, and helps distribute some of the risks that come along with farming. The CSA model also helps people learn how to eat more with the seasons, enjoying produce when it is truly at its peak deliciousness. One of our CSA members, Jen, creates meal plans and recipes to go along with each week's share, to help our members learn how to cook everything in their share. Our goal with our CSA is to eventually be able to provide for all of our member's food needs, always focusing on the highest quality foods and the best land stewardship practices we can.
Our CSA members have become many of the farm's closest friends, and we truly appreciate their continued support.
