csa share details
The CSA harvest season is 26 weeks from the end of May until the week prior to Thanksgiving.
Each week your farmers aim to harvest 8 - 15 crops with at least one being: a fresh salad green (head lettuce, arugula, etc), a cooking green (kale, chard, etc), a root crop (beets, carrots, etc), an allium (onions, leeks, etc), and usually a few fruiting crops (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, squash, etc).
When you join, you’ll set your vegetable preferences and each week through the season, a customized share will be generated for you depending on those tastes and the farm’s harvest. Every week, you will get a preview of your share and have a chance to swap items in and out of your share from the harvest list…all before you pickup!
Fresh, certified organic vegetables all grown on our farm.
Complimentary u-pick crops! U-pick crops typically include: strawberries, peas, hot peppers, culinary herbs, green beans, cherry tomatoes, and cutting flowers.
Discounts on bulk vegetables, like canning tomatoes, storage beets, or other bountiful crops.
A connection to the farm through weekly farm updates that include you in the process of growing your food. Members also get open door access to walk the farm, do u-pick, visit the animals, or just spend the time enjoying the land.
Pickup shares on the farm or at one of the delivery locations convenient to you or at no additional charge. The list continues to grow, so please check back often for the newest additions!
