CSA membership is a fun, engaging way to eat better, cook more, and connect to the world of organic farming.
Our goal is to provide you with a balanced assortment of seasonal vegetables over an 16 week summer share. We include baby salad greens or head lettuce every week, healthy dark green leafy items on a regular basis, fresh herbs like basil and cilantro, favorites such as broccoli, new potatoes, carrots and tomatoes. We also provide seasonal highlights like yellow watermelon, poblano peppers, lemon cucumbers and sweet potatoes. In 2014 our share provided over 150 pounds of fresh, organic produce to each member.
We will make your Farmshare experience the best and most convenient possible. Shares are designed to be balanced, varied and provide you with a great value. When appropriate we do provide a certain amount of choice a pick-up location. We are passionate about cooking and provide lots of approachable recipes in our weekly email newsletter. And we are always understanding if you occasionally miss a pick-up....we'll pack your share and hold it in our barn cooler until Tuesday when it is donated to the food pantry.
Price : Our share costs $350. Pay in full or in 3 monthly installments.
To make our vegetables more accessible to all, we are making several heavily discounted shares available this year and starting a scholarship fund to expand a sliding scale program. Email us for more info or fill out this financial aid form.
