-Community Supported Agriculture-
We love CSA & we wouldn't be here without it!!!
* It is the best way to feel connected to a farm community through newsletters, tours/socials & u-picks.
*You get the freshest produce in a CSA from us, most items are harvested and washed within 24 hours of delivery, giving the most nutritious tasting produce.
*The produce provided is seasonal to our area. We lean on our 11 years of working the land to provide the best we can in diversity yet not an overwhelming mix of produce.
We offer three seasons along with Summer Add-ons like eggs, cheese, pasta and more!

CSA? Community Supported Agriculture. CSA is a food share agreement that connects you to your food and the farmers that raise it. Giving money directly to local farms helps build the local economy and small farm viability. This model gives you access to the freshest food possible!
Produce Shares are received (weekly or every-other-week) in a reusable produce box (roughly the size of a paper grocery bag) lighter packed in the early season and heavier as the season proceeds... and at times overflowing!
As a shareholder everyone will receive, along with your produce, a weekly newsletter “The Growing News” with recipes and cooking tips, U-picks, free Mushroom Workshop, farm socials/tours, and Harvest Party Pizza Night!
What if I get food I won't eat? Each site has a box for "exchange" we start the box off with commonly like items.
The CDC recommends that we eat 3-5 cups of vegetables/fruits each day. With this in mind, a Half Summer share is a good portion for 1-2people and a Full Summer share is a good portion for 3-4+ people. This varies depending on how often one cooks at home.
