Community Supported Agriculture
At LotFotL we seek for you the golden mean: not too much produce in a share, and not too little, enough adventurous food to keep you learning, but not so much that you grow tired and weary. CSA needs to fit your lifestyle. Giving the right amount of food, the right kind of food, and a convenient pick up location is part of how we make local EASY!
Our boxes can be delivered on a weekly or biweekly schedule. In addition to vegetables, you will find chicken and egg shares available during the growing season. Meat shares are delivered during the Winter and early Spring when we are not in vegetable production. You will also want to take a look at our online farm store options, allowing you to supplement your CSA deliveries with in season and/or local foods like fruit, meat, and honey.
NEW! This year we introduce our “Choice” CSA Program. This is a full service option that gives maximum choice and variety to YOU and maximum support to your farmer. Choose your own veggies completely each week. In addition, find meat, egg, seasonal fruit, honey, and more available each week to round out your sustainable food options. This concept is designed to fill most of your whole food grocery needs for each week. An entirely unique concept that brings more choice into your life, more variety into your life, and makes shopping local EASY. Choose “Choice” CSA to support small family farms to the fullest extent.
