CSA

2021

Our small but mighty CSA (community-supported agriculture) program supports us – financially, physically, and psychologically. Comprised mostly of family, friends, and neighbors, we welcome 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 during weekly happy hours when we work, play, and share the beauty we’re building together.  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 also host alternate work times as available on a week-by-week basis, as time and tasks allow.

Buy-In Options:
– Full membership for the 2021 season (16 weeks) is $350
.
That’s just a little over $20 a week for hyper-local, organically grown produce.
– Half shares are also available upon request with 8 bi-weekly pickups ($200).

Please note: 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.

Pick-ups are Thursdays OR Sundays.
On-the farm or from the porch.

We consider ourselves a “community kitchen garden” and, as such, we grow lots of the same range of things people would grow in their own gardens. Here’s an idea of what we distribute throughout the season past on our past 7 years.
(NOTE: I’m sure I’m forgetting somethings and bear in mind we are always trying new things.)
