What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to directly support a farmer and in turn, receive a share of the year's harvest. You invest early in the year and then we deliver the freshest, most delicious produce straight to you thoughout the season. It's that easy! By joining a CSA, you share in the risks and rewards of farming and support local farmers through the vagaries of the weather. By planting a wide variety of crops that thrive in different conditions, CSA farms can mitigate this risk. That ensures that something is always thriving, even if the weather is less than ideal.
Our CSA runs 18 weeks (mid-June through mid-October). We pack 3/4 bushel boxes-- enough to feed a family of four or a vegetable-loving couple. Each week we pack 9-12 different vegetables in your box. We grow over 40 different crops and more than 200 varieties.
We focus on growing staple vegetables. However, we like to grow lots of varieties as well as some unique vegetables to keep things interesting. Here are some examples of vegetables you might see in your box:
Spring: Salad mix, lettuce, spinach, carrots , beets, radishes, snap peas, shelling peas, broccoli, kohlrabi, kale, swiss chard, scallions, turnips, dill, cilantro, celery.
Summer: Cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, sweet onions, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, tomatillos, melons, new potatoes, sweet corn, basil, cilantro, beets, cabbage, leeks.
Fall: Tomatoes, peppers, parsnips, carrots, beets, celery, celeriac, storage potatoes, storage onions, winter squash, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, swiss chard, lettuce, spinach, mustard greens, salad mix, leeks, turnips, radishes, pie pumpkins, pumpkins.
