WEI provides a box of organically certified vegetables, fruits and herbs (about a full grocery bags worth, on average, per week) for 18 weeks from mid-June to mid-October to our CSA members. Organic, artisan bread and cookie shares are sold separately and varieties change each week. Our members pay an annual subscription fee and share with us the harvest, joys, rewards and inherent risks that are all a part of farming.
Members pick up their CSA shares at our farm in the North Branch, MN area or from one of our drop site partners located throughout the Twin Cities Metro and North Branch areas. Members are also encouraged to become part of the farm experience by visiting or volunteering at the Women's Environmental Institute on Amador Hill.
As a MOSA Certified Organic Farm and Orchard, we submit to a rigorous third party verification process to ensure that we use no petrochemical insecticides, herbicides, fungicides or GMO/treated seeds.
EVERY CSA SHARE HELPS TO SUPPORT OUR MISSION of ENVIRONMENTAL AND AGRICULTURAL JUSTICE AND COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT
