La Vista CSA Farm (formerly the Community Supported Garden at La Vista) is beginning its 11th season as a 120 member CSA. We feature sustainably grown vegetables, herbs and flowers during our 27 week season from mid-May through mid-November. Folks become shareholders through the purchase of a weekly or every-other-week share.
In addition to the regular 27 week season, we offer a 5 week "Spring Greens" share from late March through early May for $35. This consists of 1 pound of greens that we grow in-ground in our greenhouse as well as out in the field.
Our farm is located on scenic bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. The farm is part of the Oblate Ecological Initiative and is connected with the "La Vista Ecological Learning Center." Both La Vista farm and the Learning Center offer opportunities for farm tours, seasonal celebrations, shareholder potlucks, and cooking classes.
We offer a Spring Greens share to non-members for $50.
We have a partnership with Live Springs Farm in Carrollton. They sell pastured pork and beef and free-range chickens and their eggs. Shareholders order directly from Live Springs; La Vista serves as their drop off point.
Off-site deliveries include a one-time $25 fee * Garden Heights Nursery, 1605 S. Big Bend Blvd. St. Louis, Saturdays, 7 am * Green Earth Grocery, 441 S Buchanan, Edwardsville, Tuesdays, 5:30 pm
