Enjoy our fresh, delicious Certified Organic produce by joining our 2013 CSA! Each week, from June-October, CSA members will receive a diverse share of the best vegetables growing on our farm, selected and harvested earlier in the day.

By choosing to become a CSA member, you are voting with your dollars in support of a food system that enriches all those involved, from your own health to the economic well-being of us, your farmers, to the environment that supports us all. We look forward to sharing the seasons with you, from the very first greens in the spring to the last roots of the fall harvest, together creating a more sustainable agriculture.

Why Join Our CSA?

1) Fresh, flavorful organic produce, harvested and handed to you in the same day

4) Farmers' market delivery, where members meet us in-person to receive their vegetables from the weekly harvest

5) Weekly newsletter with information about what's in your share, along with recipes for using your veggies
