2022 Regular Season Choice CSA

New and improved to be even more flexible than ever before. Choose the level that you want to invest in the farm and spend your return as credits on our online farm store throughout your season. Program foods are either grown on the farm or sourced locally.  Our farm values and looks for small scale producers that use organic and/or sustainable methods. It is our mission to build community around local sustainable food.

FAQ:

Q: Is all of your food organic? The veggies grown on our farm are certified organic and we buy from organic growers.  Any not certified items are always disclosed. Meat, cheese, eggs, bread, and other items are locally produced but not always organic. Meat is either organically fed or grass-fed and/or pastured.

Q: What program is right for me? This can be a difficult question to answer because everyone has different eating habits. Farmers Tim and April ordered every week during the winter season and easily averaged $80-$90/wk.  We do cook regularly and we do eat meat. Our summer share will probably average closer to $100/wk because there is more available.

FOOD EQUITY PROGRAM:

As we continue to build community through local and sustainable food, we started a food equity program that is designed to build and support a more diverse community and make food more accessible to everyone. Members who value this concept and want to contribute financially may do so.  Donations will go toward reducing the costs of our programs for potential members who express a desire and need for financial assistance.
