CSA Information

Folks have been asking for information on our CSA subscriptions so I thought I would try to answer some questions here in this blog entry. Our CSA subscriptions have pretty much all the popular veggies. With our subscriptions, we include melons in season, but that is really the only fruit. Sometimes there is peaches, apples and plums, but only occasionally. As for veggies, a few are: beets, lettuce, Swiss chard, sweet corn, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, squash, zucchini, summer squash, onion, radish, kohlrabi, carrots, beans, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and more - - All in season. A full subscription basically a bushel.

We are an integrated pest management farm, meaning we use a combination of growing techniques to control problems. We start with organic measures, and move into more conventional measures if organic measures do not work. We are not certified organic. But as for chemicals, we only spray when needed and we use "safe" products with PHI of zero to one. Our soil is very rich in organic matter and we work diligently to improve our soil each year.

I am a fourth generation farmer on the home farm. You are certainly welcome to visit the farm and talk with me personally. Thank you for your interest in our CSA program. If I can answer any more questions, or if you would like to meet and/or tour the farm, let me know.
