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.
Our CSA runs for 20 weeks, from May to September. Members are responsible for showing up at their chosen pick-up site to pick up your share of freshly harvested, organic vegetables. Members receive one box each week with enough produce to
feed 1-2 people for the week.

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 uber-fresh local produce
as much as you are.
