How it Works

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture or CSA  is a partnership between our community and farm.

As your local organic farmers, we pledge to grow and deliver beautiful food using the organic growing practices you support.  Joining our CSA is a vote for keeping local organic and pasture based agriculture alive and well in our community.

As a member of our CSA, we’ll follow the growing season together.  We’ll keep you updated about the happenings on the farm – the first tomato, the birth of a young calf, the arrival of baby chicks and the the many stories happening throughout the season.   Of course, there will hardships as well – tough weather, an early frost.  Good and bad…there are great stories happening every day on our farm.

What our customers usually say after being a shareholder is they never realized what it takes to grow food. You definitely learn how real local food is produced through the eyes of those actually doing it – the farmers.   Your family will develop a new and true appreciation for food that tastes wholesome, fresh and full of local farm energy.

Our food is a sensory explosion of flavor, aroma, texture and pleasure.  It inspires kids (and husbands!) to try new vegetables, family members demand real BBF eggs instead of the pale store bought and a roasted BBF chicken is better than you ever tasted.  It just feels good to know where and how your food is raised.
