What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSAs come in all shapes and sizes these days. In our CSA, you will receive a share of the produce that the farm harvests. Shares will be delivered weekly on Tuesdays in a 3/4 bushel box or a 1/2 bushel box. Boxes will be filled with a variety of seasonal vegetables. Typically there will be 10-12 or 6-8 types of veggies in a box depending on your share size.
Having shares of produce pre-sold helps us with planning, reduces waste, and ensures that you receive the freshest of what is in season. Participating in a CSA also means that your voice matters. We take feedback from members seriously when making decisions on the farm. If there are ways that we can support you better, we want to know!
What crops do you grow?
Crops you can expect to see in your box will vary by the seasons...
Spring: green garlic, garlic scapes, scallions, microgreens, pea shoots, head lettuce, spinach, arugula, radishes, salad turnips, beets, snap peas, kohlrabi, kale, chard, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage
Summer: fresh garlic, bunching onions, microgreens, head lettuce, carrots, green beans, tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, sweet corn, cucumbers, herbs, zucchini, summer squash, melons, celery
Fall: cured garlic, onions, microgreens, head lettuce, spinach, arugula, radishes, salad turnips, beets, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, kale, chard, tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, winter squash, potatoes, herbs, cabbage, ginger
Some crops might be added or removed from the list depending on how the season goes. Also note that 1/2 bushel shares will likely receive less variety of items than 3/4 bushel shares.

Are you certified organic?
No, we are not certified organic. As a small farm selling direct to our customers, we have not yet chosen to go through the certification process. We do not use any substances on our produce crops that are prohibited by the organic rules. We mainly use compost produced on the farm for fertility. We also use cover cropping. We occasionally use organic approved soil amendments as indicated by soil testing. We use row cover as needed for insect exclusion. We also use crop rotation to try to stay ahead of pests and disease problems. If pest pressure becomes extreme we will consider using organic approved sprays, but that is the exception rather than the rule. We do not use any gmo seeds or treated seeds. We buy certified organic seeds when they are available.
How long is the season?
We plan to start the season on May 30th this year. The start date is somewhat weather dependent. We might start a week earlier or later depending on how things are growing in the spring. Once we start, we will run for 18 weeks, through late September. We are tentatively planning on offering a fall share that will run for another 8 weeks in October and November, but details and sign ups for that will come out later in the summer.
