Is it a worthy investment?
Yes, if you love cooking and vegetables or have aspirations to do so. The freshness, flavor, taste and quality of produce you will receive at the farm CANNOT be found in any regular grocery store.
Do you sell elsewhere?
Yes. CSA shares cover 75% of farm expenses. To make up the rest, we plant extra crops for the College dining hall and the North Square Farmers Market.
What sort of produce will I get?
We like to focus on well-known vegetables, but also introduce members to unique culinary delights. Volume and variety vary with the season and weather conditions, but you can expect:
- Spring: Low volume - cool season greens, radish, spinach, spring onions.
- Late spring: Carrots, peas, berries, beets.
- Summer: High volume - tomatoes, beans, melons, cucumbers, summer squash, garlic, onions.
- Fall: Winter squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, greens.
We provide lettuce and salad items throughout the season (weather permitting). Produce is always fresh!
How does it work?
Members pick up produce at our barn weekly or biweekly. Your share is harvested and washed for you. Extra produce (herbs, berries, flowers, beans or even tomatoes) is free for the picking in our Pick-Your-Own (PYO) areas seven days a week. Choose a share option and pickup day that works for you. Fill out the application, then send a deposit or pay in full.
We offer cooking classes, speakers, farm tours and more. We’d love to have members initiate and help organize community events on the farm. Bring us your ideas and we’ll work with you to make them happen.
