CSA - Annual Membership Share
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! Most of our crops are pre-harvested and packed, and this year we are delighted to add on a pick-your-own garden for our members. This will be especially fun for the kiddos!

This 10 week share hangs on to the bounty of summer - think tomatoes & peppers - while gently moving us back towards our winter diet. Fall brings a resurgence of greens that thrive in slightly cooler conditions, and some specialty crops like popcorn, fruits & berries. This share culminates in a larger Thanksgiving share, intended to provide a larger portion of your Thanksgiving meal. Many of these final foods store well, and will last you until our Deep Winter share starts back up again.
Shares May Include: Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, & other late summer fruits, Winter squash, Cabbage, Parsnips, Beets, Carrots, Spinach, Kale, Popcorn, Fruits, Berries & more.
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.
