2017 Season Shares are open for signup.
We Grow For Our Members
Our farm is primarily a CSA farm and all our production is planned for the CSA. When crops are especially abundant, we pack as much as possible into your share. However, we don’t want to overwhelm our members or deliver so much produce that it goes to waste, and surplus will be marketed through farmer's markets and other local outlets. We offer a "build your own box" option at all our farmer's market pick up sites. We grow a wide variety of crops, including traditional seasonal, and specialty crops.
What can I expect in my share?
Asparagus, strawberries, various cooking greens, lettuce, kale, radishes, peas, garlic greens, scallions, in spring.
Tomatoes, peppers, summer squashes, beans, cooking and salad greens, eggplant, blueberries, herbs, garlic and onions in the summer.
Beets, carrots, turnips, winter squash, potatoes, apples, broccoli, brussel sprouts, onions, radishes, cauliflower, rutabaga, onions, lettuce, arugula and cold hardy greens in the fall.
We aim to remain diversified in our selection to provide a well rounded variety each week. This list is not meant to be exact, but to serve as an example of seasonal produce we plan to provide.

2017 Pickup Locations
If you don't see a drop site convenient for you, we are open to suggestions. We require a minimum of at least 5 members to create a new pickup site.
We have partnered with some of our favorite local producers to offer some add on items to your CSA share, including locally mixed organic teas, locally roasted organic fair trade coffees, and local raw honey. More small batch local products will be added soon!
Not sure if you're ready to commit to a seasonal CSA share? Try a trial CSA share to be delivered to any of our drop sites any time throughout the season.
Check out our online store for new bulk produce as they become available.
"I understand that community supported agriculture is a cooperative venture between growers and eaters. As a partner in this venture, I will share the bounties and risks inherent in the planting, growing, harvesting & distribution of my produce. I understand that some crops may fail while others will do better than expected, a natural pattern in farming that may lead to some variability throughout the growing season. I will be responsible for picking up my produce weekly at the designated drop site."
