2014 CSA Information

 June Memberships are full! We will add more members in July -  register today to get on the list!

What is a CSA? 
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  It means the community supports the farm by not just being a customer but by actually being a 'share holder' for part, or all of, the season.   In this way we are able to provide you with the freshest produce our farm has to offer and you will know where your food comes from, eat in harmony with the seasons, and enjoy the addition of local organic produce to your diet. We believe that this farm-to-family connection is the ideal food system and that by being a part of it we are helping create a healthier future for our planet as well as our bodies.  

What's in the box?
 Contents will vary according to season.  We grow a wide variety of tree fruit and basic staple veggies as well as heirloom and specialty varieties.  Here is a list of some of the things you can expect in your box over the course of this year.
Green beans 
Several varieties of tomatoes, including heirlooms and dry farmed
Lettuce or salad mix
Summer squash
Sugar snap peas
Winter Squash
15 varieties of apples
We are also teaming up with Farmer Max to add strawberries into the mix as well!


What's New?
We are excited to be working with our friends at Hidden Fortress Micro Farm this year to make your connection to local sustainable agriculture even more convenient.  They have offered to deliver your boxes right to your home! The delivery fee is $5/week, or half price with the addition of their amazing add-on package.  The Hidden Fortress Add-On option is a $10/week value that includes sustainable solar-roasted coffee and locally made jam, muffins and/or hand crafted apple cider vinegar all produced at their awesome little farm.  Delivery memberships are limited, so please sign up asap if you want this option.
