Summer CSA - How does it work?

In order for farmers to plan to grow the appropriate amount of vegetables for their share members, we need our members to Sign Up for our Summer CSA and pay their deposit (“seed money”, literally) for a share in the seasons veggies as soon as possible in the New Year.

After purchasing a share members receive a basket of fresh locally grown vegetables once a week during the growing season, and a real connection to their food and farmer.   The program season has averaged 18-21 weeks (nature allowing) from mid-June to late October.

Organic, Fresh and Locally Grown

Our Organic vegetables contain:

  • NO pesticides
  • NO herbicides
  • NO fungicides
  • NO synthetic fertilizers

And we provide you with great recipes to prepare your fresh vegetables.

We welcome your involvement in the garden, and invite our members to come out to the farm.

We also offer naturally raised meats including naturally raised pork, beef, chickens, and turkeys – free of growth hormones and government inspected. We custom cut to your specification. Please view the various products we offer.
