Our small but mighty CSA (community supported agriculture) program supports us – financially, psychologically, and physically. Comprised mostly of family, friends, and neighbors, we welcome a few new folks each year. While the infusion of cash for supplies is helpful, we operate as a CSA because we love sharing the labor and fruits that brings.
We ask our members to lend a hand on the farm once a month for at least two hours. Most enjoy these opportunities to commune with one another and the land on which their food is growing. Many bring their children to get their hands dirty and to learn more about where their food comes from. We host weekly happy hours on Sundays from 4-6pm where we work, play, and share the natural beauty we’re building together. Alternate work times are also available on a week-by-week basis as time and tasks allow.
Membership for the 2017 season (16 weeks from May-September) is $350. A limited number of early spring and fall extension packages will also be available. Members pick up their shares Sunday or Thursdays afternoons.
Every share we distribute is customized. We never give anyone anything they don’t plan to use. Our goal is to grow as much produce as we can and to have that consumed as fresh as possible.
Here’s an idea of what we distribute throughout the season. I’m sure I’m forgetting something and bear in mind we are always trying new things.
