Why is there no half-share?

This season is short and will contain many of our storage vegetables, meaning that these vegetables will keep for 1-2 months if you keep them in a cool dark place. Meaning that it is less likely that you will be overrun by vegetables that will go bad quickly. As always, we encourage you to share with a co-worker, neighbor, or friend.

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) 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 shares each week for a set number of weeks. This is a great model for all involved, farmers get up-front capitol when they need it most and consumers get ultra-fresh, local produce.

Our CSA is a bit different: it is collaborative and self-serve. Collaborative means that many farms in the area contribute food. We strive to work with only the best growers that use safe and sustainable growing practices. Self-serve means that you have from Wednesday at 12pm and Monday at 5pm to pick it up.
