Community Supported Agriculture
Goldilocks would love this CSA!
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. This isn’t the easy road to travel, but we are up for the challenge. CSA needs to fit a member’s 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!
Below you are sure to find a box size that will work with your life. 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.
