Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between our farm and people interested in receiving the freshest certified organic produce available. Rather than simply purchasing food, our customers become members of our farm who receive a portion of the farm’s harvest each week during our main harvest season.

What can i expect in a csa box each week?
Your weekly box will be a reflection of what we're harvesting each week. Each box has about 10 different varieties of veggies and herbs, with staple items (i.e. lettuces, herbs, garlic, kale, etc) repeating often. We occasionally partner with other local growers (who are also committed to "beyond organic" practices) to provide our CSA members with unique items we don't grow. Each week's box feeds 1-2 people, depending on how much you love vegetables (and cook at home).
Why Would i pay so far in advance for my veggies?
It might seem strange to purchase "your share" of veggies months ahead of the time they're even ready for harvest. Doing so ensures you a spot on our CSA, which has a tendency to fill up before the season begins, but it also plays an important role in supporting your local farmers. We make all of the big purchases for our season in the winter in order to be able to bring you fresh deliciousness in the late spring and summer. That's why CSA stands for "community supported agriculture." Huge government
subsidies don't support small organic farms — people
in our community do.
Are half or split boxes available?
While half CSAs (or split boxes) aren't available, we encourage those interested in a smaller weekly harvest to find a person to split your CSA with each week. A neighbor, friend, or family member might be interested in some ultra fresh local produce
as much as you are.
Can I see Where My Veggies Are Grown?
Why yes! We host a special, CSA Member-Only Farm Tour at the start of our CSA Season. It's our members' opportunity to see exactly where and how their food is grown, and to meet the sweet folks bringing them the harvests! WE ARE SO EXCITED TO BRING THIS BACK THIS YEAR (safely, of course).

Our Harvest is Your harvest
Our Low-Waste Commitment
We are planning to safely bring back our reusable totes this season
In our effort to make farming as eco-friendly as possible, we introduced reusable totes and bags to our CSA two seasons back. It was a huge step forward and one we continue to refine. After pausing it for COVID, we are looking forward to safely bringing it back this season. All totes and produce bags are sanitized in industrial strength hydrogen peroxide.
The cost of this year's CSA includes a $50 deposit for the package set (two black totes and one produce bag set). If the package set is returned in working condition at the end of the season, that $50 deposit will be returned to the CSA member.
