Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between our farm and those 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.

Our Low-Waste Commitment
In our effort to make our operation as eco-friendly as possible, we introduced reusable totes and bags to our CSA four seasons back. It was a huge step forward and one we continue to refine. All totes and produce bags are sanitized in industrial strength hydrogen peroxide.
We are no longer using a deposit system for totes and sincerely request that members return any totes and reusable bags to us at the end of the season. In previous seasons, members have been very considerate of this and we feel confident in your support.
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).
How Do I get home delivery?
We have partnered with Reno Mobile Market to bring the convenience of home delivery back. You are welcome to prepay for this service to have your box automatically routed for home delivery each week, or you can opt to buy home delivery week by week, via our online store. While we love seeing you at the market, or at our convenient Co-op pick up location, we know how helpful it can be to just have your local harvest land right on your doorstep. Huge shout out to Reno Mobile Market (a local nonprofit) for helping us pull this off!
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 during 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!
