What is CSA?

Community supported agriculture is an alternative, locally-based model of distribution not dependent on the conventional market. This offers a direct relationship between the farm and the community.

It allows farmers to focus on growing the highest quality crops and maintaining a sustainable diversity while giving members and locals access to the freshest source possible.

Each year a limited number of memberships are pre-sold for a share in the coming harvest. Members receive a weekly bounty of fresh produce according to seasonal supply.

CSA Crop List

CSA Crop List

This is the list of what we grow organically for our CSA program. Many crops listed here will be only available to members in our CSA program. Overages grown will be sold and available at the farm stand some of the time.

This is our current crop plan for the upcoming CSA season. This is intended as a guide line to what we plan to grow. For CSA Members this is a good gauge of the scheduled crops. All of theses crops on this list are grown with the intention of servcing the CSA program. We may add or delete different crops at any time.

You may notice some crops listed have a whole season span. Most of the time that is because there are two times per year that they are harvested. Usually late spring/early summer & fall. Most greens are less available in the peak of summers heat.

Hover your mouse over the note on the different crops for extra details.
