What is a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture is a model of food distribution where farmers commit to providing a share of their total crop to their CSA members. The members pay in advance for this share and receive a certain amount of produce each week or in our case, biweekly throughout the course of the season. Our CSA is unique in that our distribution season runs through the fall and winter months from October to February. We grow a variety of storable crops, fresh eating greens, and cooking greens.
Your CSA Share
At every pick-up, you will receive a variety of stored and occasionally fresh-harvested vegetables. At the backbone of the CSA share are our staple winter storage vegetables: Winter squash, onions, garlic, red or green cabbage, potatoes and carrots. We also aim to include one of each of the following:
Greens- spinach, lettuce, asian greens, kale, brussels sprouts. winter greens from the greenhouse
Root vegetables- rutabaga, celeriac, parsnips, storage radishes, beets, turnips
Other Items- kohlrabi, leeks, shallots, parsley, cilantro
