Become an Owner

In 2022, we will be offering a range of CSA options and offerings, which, we hope, will give a wider range of people an opportunity to invest in and connect with operations on the farm.

CSA - Community Supported Agriculture

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a production and marketing model whereby consumers buy shares of a farm’s harvest in advance. Consumers become CSA members, and seasonal farm owners, by paying an agreed amount at the beginning of the growing season, either in one lump sum or in installments.

 

By paying at the beginning of the season, CSA members  relieve us of much of the time needed for marketing. This allows us to concentrate on good land stewardship and growing high quality food. 

“A good community, as we know, insures itself by trust, by good faith and good will, by mutual help. A good community, in other words, is a good local economy. It depends upon itself for many of its essential needs and is thus shaped, so to speak, from the inside — unlike most modern populations that depend upon distant purchases for almost everything, and are thus shaped from the outside by the purposes and the influence of salesmen.”

 

– Wendell Berry

What We Offer

Our bimonthly VEGETABLE SHARE:

Every other week, members will pick up a bag of vegetables.

While we are not organic certified, we only use natural growing practices and prefer to use organic seed, when it is available.  The pandemic has resulted in some difficulty sourcing some seed organically, but all the produce is raised without the use of unnatural herbicides or pesticides.

This year we will be growing: amaranth, arugula, basil, beans, beets, bok choy, broccoli, brussel sprouts, butternut squash, carrots, cantaloupe, cauliflower, chives, cilantro, cucumber, delicata, dill, edamame, fennel, flowers. garlic, garlic scapes, greens, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, onion, parsley, parsnip, peppers, popcorn, potatoes, pumpkins, radish, rutabaga, snap peas, spinach, sweet potato, swiss chard, tomatoes, turnips, watermelon, and zucchini. 

Since we are starting with a small CSA, we will be able to offer a degree of flexiblity in our shares, so you can substitute more of what you like for what you don't. 

Since you become owners of the farm, when you purchase a CSA, we will let you know when we have excess to share and preserve.  

Prior to the distribution of shares, you will get a list of what to expect in each week's crate, and suggestions on how you might like to prepare it.

Additionally, as a thank you for joining in our first season, we will provide a free bouquet of homegrown tulips for members, who sign up before April 10th.
