Community Shared Agriculture

What is CSA?

We sell our vegetables direct to households through our CSA: Community Shared Agriculture connects farmers directly with eaters. Members pre-purchase a share in the harvest & are treated to an assortment of the fresh, locally-grown vegetables in season each week. We grow most of our vegetables and eggs here at our farm, and source the rest from local farm partners

Our vegetables are fresh & delicious:
you'll taste the difference.
Our Summer CSA runs 19 weeks from June-October.  
This season, until dangers due to COVID-19 have passed, we will be pre-packing shares for contact-free pick-up. While we are grieving the resulting loss of community and choice of share contents, it seems this is the safest way to get you your vegetables. 

We sell egg shares from our pastured hens and meat is available seasonally through  our partners. Bread, flowers, fruit & other options are dependent on our ability to safely procure & distribute - they may not be available for the 1st part of the 2020 season.

**Sliding Scale Shares available through our Community Shares Program **
