We try to grow a balanced blend of old standbys and exiting new things. We usually steer clear of "strange" veggies, opting instead for new forms of well known things, like Italian zucchini or purple potatoes. A May share could include sorrel, radishes, baby greens, rhubarb and green onions, while a September share would more likely contain things like tomatoes, squash, onions, garlic, potatoes, and cabbage. Every vegetable sent to you at its peak flavor, in season. This is living off the land when you don't have the time or space to grow these things yourself. We grow everything according to organic standards, so you don't have to worry about residues. Our veggies don't have to survive a 1,500 mile trip to get to you every week; you can pick them up right on the farm where they grew. This allows us to grow Heirloom varieties that, while they might not ship well, or have a three month shelf life, will have ten times the flavor of their produce dept. counterparts. We grow standard varieties too, but these heirlooms (in the same class as heritage animals) are what make our CSA fun and flavorful. We enjoy doing things a little differently, and so do the folks who share our garden. Community Supported Agriculture is more than just a garden share program; it's a way of life. Won't you join us?
