Community Supported Agriculture
Our CSA is full for 2019
Join the CSA and enjoy a 20 week supply of locally-grown produce May - September.
At one time, a large portion of our diet was supplied by the fertile lands which surround us. Today our food system has changed. It's common today to find imported produce in the grocery store while the local crop is in season and being shipped out of state! How crazy is that? It is our mission to reverse this trend. The CSA program is an effort to fill the dinner tables of our members with fresh, nutritious produce while providing them an opportunity to reconnect with the seasonal nature of local food and help preserve a working family farm.
Farming is unpredictable by nature. Even though we are carefully planning to provide you with a great variety of excellent quality produce for the 20-week season, there is no guarantee of the contents of your weekly share. We can guarantee that you will get a share each week, but not exactly what that share will include.
What does a share include?
You will get an assortment of fresh produce each week for 20 weeks, Starting the week of May 8 and continuing through the week of September 18. When you arrive at the farm, you will find the produce in bulk containers with a tag on each item indicating how much you get that week. Some veggies may be new to you, but part of the fun of a CSA is trying new things! Recipes will be provided through the farm blog to help you find new ways to enjoy your produce. A share also includes an invitation to our Spring Open House and the Fall Pumpkin Pick.
Choose a size:
Full share - $26/week
Half share- $14.50/week
Installment plan available. more info.
Notice photos of an actual Half Share on this page.

Is the produce Organic?
Some of our crops are grown organically and some are not.
Organic crops include:
arugula, bok choy, broccoli, broccoli raab, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, herbs, kale, kohlrabi, lettuces, onions, peas, hot peppers, spinach, swiss chard, and grape tomatoes.
Non-organic crops, which are grown as part of a soil-building crop rotation and using integrated pest management (IPM) practices include:
beets, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, green beens, melons, radishes, squash, strawberries, sweet corn and watermelons and winter squash.
Some products are sourced from neighboring farms including: apples, asparagus, blueberries and peaches. These crops are grown conventionally unless stated otherwise.
Only a few years ago, our family farm was focused on commercial-scale production or fresh produce and had no market for organically grown crops. When we started the CSA, we also began transitioning some land into organic production because we knew our CSA members would appreciate it. As the CSA grows, so will the portion of products that are grown organically. We are still working to develop ways to grow some crops organically while producing an acceptable yield and quality of product.
Our farm is GAP (good agricultural practices) certified. This is a rigorous annual inspection that requires a high level of food safety practices.
It's not easy to be a consumer these days with many conflicting messages about which foods are healthy. What we can promise is that we will do our best to grow safe, nutritious food. We consider it an honor and privilege to be your farmer. You can rest assured that your health and safety is our top priority.
