Crimson Sweet, one of the many Heirloom Watermelons we grow
Runs from Early May- Mid October, 2018
A CSA is a subscription program consisting of a weekly delivery to a regional pick-up point of fresh, Certified Naturally Grown produce that comes from our farm directly to you!
Our CSA gives members the choice of LARGE, SMALL and MINI shares so that you can select what works for you and your family!
What are the Benefits?
You will receive share boxes for 25 weeks of fresh, Organically raised, high quality, cleaned produce.
Eating with the seasons is healthy and fun!
When you compare our CSA price with the cost of buying Organic at the store, if will be clear that you are saving money! Plus, you can't find vegetables this fresh and nutritious in any store! The vegetables you receive from the CSA didn't spend weeks in transit coming from across the country or the world.
Reconnect with your precious, essential food chain. Through annual farm events and tours, you can see where and how the food you feed your family is being grown. Get to know the people who raise your food!
Exposure to new vegetables and recipes. Get out of the same old, same old dinner rut with new kinds of vegetables and diverse varieties of the old standards ( when was the last time you had lemon cucumbers or Asian greens?). We will be sharing recipes and serving suggestions from our weekly farm blog.
Significantly reduce your carbon footprint by eating locally.

We will be happy to discuss this on a case by case basis for those who enjoy some hard work.
Feel free to split a share with someone! But if there is only one melon that week, y'all have to work it out amongst yourselves. No fighting please!
If you are traveling during the growing season for a week or two, a friend or family member can pick-up your share and enjoy. Or we can donate it to a food bank. If you travel frequently during the farming season, you may want to consider a farmers market credit instead.
Buying in Bulk?
Please contact us if you are interested in buying in bulk amounts at a lower cost for canning and freezing. We will be happy to accommodate you.
SHARE THE BOUNTY!
If a share is not picked up or you are away for the pick-up day, we always donate that share to a family.
