CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. For over 25 years, this has become a popular way for consumers to receive seasonal, local food from farms. By purchasing a "share" of the seasons harvests in advance, it allows farmers the cash flow to purchase the items they need in the beginning of the season.
Last season we piloted our first CSA, and this year plan to expand and open up additional shares. We aim to bring you 20 weeks of bountiful fresh produce, herbs and cut flowers. Below you will find the details of our farm share for the 2017 season and you can learn more about our produce and growing practices here.
You can check out all of our share pictures from last year, here.
Projected 20 Week Season - June 3rd to October 21st - 2017
We say projected, because we never know what mother nature has planned. The dates provided are our best guess, but as the season approaches we will update you on if we think we can start our season earlier. We also strive for a 20 week season, weather conditions could dictate a longer (yay!) or shorter season. In last years drought (very extreme conditions) we still had a 17 week season.
Farmshare Pick-up - Saturdays 10AM - 12 PM
Agreeing to participate, means making a commitment to pick up your share every week. Other share customers may be able to pick up your share for you on a week you are busy. First thing in the morning is the optimal harvest time for keeping produce fresh. We have chairs and tables set up and we encourage people to walk the farm, bring a coffee and enjoy your time with us.
Payment & How to Sign Up
We require a 50% deposit to reserve a spot in our farm share. The remaining balance must be paid before June 3rd 2017. If you have a financial hardship, please let us know, we will never turn anyone away based on financial ability. WE ARE FULL FOR THE 2017 SEASON.
