Community Supported Agriculture
What exactly IS community supported agriculture? You and family partner your local farmer in return for a diverse array of fresh vegetables, which you pick up right from the farm each week, June through October. Scroll down to sign up!
How long will the CSA last?
22 Weeks, from June through October. Our distribution will begin around Memorial Day and run through the end of October.

"HALF" and "FUlL" SHARES AVAILABLE!
Each week you'll take home a good volume of produce according to your share size! Half shares will receive apprx 1 peck, and Full shares receive apprx 1/2 bushel of produce each week. We harvest the veggies that are ripe in the field, and we let YOU choose what you'd like to take home, using our "mix-and-match" system.
our "U-pick" fields
In addition to your weekly share, you'll have the option to pick some of your own vegetables & fruits right from the field. We will let you know each week what's available (peas, beans, cherry tomatoes, herbs. etc....) and you have the freedom to pick. IF you're physically unable to participate in our "U-Pick," we'll gladly pick those veggies for you too.
What kinds of vegetables can I expect?
The produce varies by season! We'll have new crop varieties nearly every week to keep your dinner plates new and fresh. Below are some examples of the vegetables you'll see for your CSA distribution. Please note that the samples lbs below are for FULL shares.
Spring [~10 lbs]: lettuce, spinach, bok choy, radishes, carrots, beets, zucchini, scallions, snow peas, dill
Summer [~15 lbs]: plum & slicing tomatoes, spaghetti squash, green bell peppers, tomatillos, hot peppers, onion, okra, eggplant, cantaloupe, basil
Fall [~18 lbs]: potatoes, broccoli, kale, Swiss chard, potatoes, broccoli, rutabaga, butternut squash, sweet potatoes
How many people does 1 CSA share feed?
One Half share feeds 1-2 people, and a Full share feeds up to a family of 4 - though that all depends on your veggie consumption, and food storage habits.
Half Shares = $450 ($100 deposit)
Full Shares = $750 ($100 deposit)
This includes your weekly U-pick too! That's savings and freshness you can't beat at the supermarket.
