Fall CSA openings


The Fall CSA*, which started 2 weeks ago, now has several open spots!

What: shares will include salad greens, carrots, beets, eggplant, squash, leeks, cabbage and more.

When: now-Dec 14

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 anytime from 11am on Wednesdays to 9pm Sundays. Here’s a silly tutorial video on how to pick up your share.

Cost The cost is $20/week. We ask that you pay in full at or before the first pick up. Cost will vary depending on start date.

To join the CSA:

  1. Sign up using this form: 2016 Fall CSA
  2. Payment 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.
