Our 2019 Summer CSA Sign ups are open and we expect to sell out of spots quickly!
Thanks so much for your interest in Community supported agriculture!
What is a CSA?
Community-Supported Agriculture is a model in which consumers purchase a membership to a farm which entitles them to a weekly portion of that farm's harvest during the height of the growing season. The membership fee is generally paid before each growing season starts, providing the farm funds to start purchasing the inputs that they will need to start their season, such a seeds, soil, fertilizers, etc. This membership allows the producer and consumer to share the risks of farming, creating more stability and sustainability for the farm.
When does the CSA begin? How long is the CSA?
The Summer Veggie CSA is a 15 week share that starts mid to late June each summer. CSA members will be notified of the start date each season and will receive reminders as the first pick-up approaches.
The Sunflower Share CSA is a 6 week share that starts in late July or early August each summer. Each week, members receive a bouquet featuring the many varieties of sunflowers that we grow on the farm, receiving a different type of sunflower each week.
Are your products organic?
Yes, our farm is certified organic by MOFGA. Occasionally we purchase vegetables or fruit from farms in our area in order to offer special veggies or fruit to the CSA, and most of these farms are certified organic. There is a small chance that we will offer an item that is not certified organic. The vegetables that you receive in your CSA will be organic, unless announced ahead of time.
What happens if we can not make it to the pick up on the day we signed up for?
It is very important that you show up to collect your shares at your chosen location, during our pick-up hours. We can only provide your share on the day that you signed up for, and we cannot replace shares that are not picked up. You may send a friend to pick up your share for you, just have them give your name at pickup.
