Spring CSA


UPDATE: The spring CSA is now sold out! Our summer CSA will be starting at the end of June. Keep an eye out for more details

 

Happy first day of spring!! To celebrate, we are launching our Spring Employee CSA program(not sure what that is there’s more info at the bottom of this post).

What: Spring CSA. Shares will consist, primarily, of greens (spinach, lettuce, arugula, spicy mix) with the addition of other crops like radishes and peas.

Who: St Joseph Mercy Employees. We will take 40 people.

When: The 4 weeks of April  (April 6-27).

How: This is a self-serve CSA, meaning that you will be able to pick your shares (a bag of produce) up from a cooler at the Farm starting on Wednesdays at 11am. To sign up please use this form.

Cost: $48($12/wk). We ask that you pay in full at or before the first pick up. Options include,

  1. Come to the Wednesday Farmer’s market (11-1) and pay with cash, check, credit card or payroll deduct.
  2. Bring cash or check (made out to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital) to the Farm.
  3. If you are a resident, please talk to Matt Malone.

Definition: If you haven’t heard of them, CSA, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture, programs are a way for farms to connect directly with customers. Typically, farms offer a set number of “shares” which customers can purchase at the beginning of the season. Then customers come pick up their share each week for a set number of weeks. This is a great model for all involved, farmers get upfront capitol when they need it most and consumers get ultra-fresh, local produce.
