Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) 2019

"CSA" stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Think of it as a vegetable subscription--a promise to support this local farmer through the main growing season. In return, we take the commitment to growing for CSA very seriously and make every effort to have an interesting, tasty variety of produce every week during the season.

More about our 2019 CSA

What you receive:Each week's share will include 5-7 items. We aim for 2 types of "greens" (lettuce, kale, chard, arugula, spinach, pea shoots), 1-2 roots (turnips, radishes, carrots, beets, potatoes) and alliums (onions, garlic, leeks, chives, scallions, garlic scapes), 1 herb (basil, sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley, cilantro, oregano), and 1-2 of "everything else" (tomatoes, peppers, ground cherries, eggplant, peas, squash, rhubarb, asparagus, strawberries, etc.).

How it works: In 2018 we delivered all CSA shares to your door on Thursday afternoon/evening. In 2019 we are continuing to offer this option, but will also have a Tuesday afternoon pick-up option for those who want to pick up from the farm. We may also offer a second pick-up location elsewhere (to be determined based on interest).

Every week in addition to vegetables we also send out storage and cooking tips to help you make the most of your share. This year we are also offering classes and events at the farm, and CSA members receive at least 15% off on these offerings as well as discounted specialty items such as pesto and jam.

A sample week early in the season might include: mixed salad greens, carrots, beets, peas, and chives. Later on, we’ll have tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and much more!

We also partner with friend and neighbor Bearfoot Farm to bring additional variety to the share (2018's share members had a taste of Kyle's strawberries and tomatillos).

Growing Practices

The short story is that we mostly use organic compost and many different kinds of mulch to build up the soil and build healthy plants. We use physical barriers such as a thin fabric cloth (row cover) to deter insects, as necessary. We do not use chemicals--herbicides or pesticides--and we mostly use organic and/or open-pollinated seeds (no GMO's).
