Our mission: To seek out and save traditional farming practices and seed heritage through research, technique and experiment and to share that inherited knowledge with this and future generations and of 'course provide earth's bounty to you, our shareholders.

Bob's fresh & local CSA brings (you) + (us) together in a mutually beneficial contract. By providing a preseason payment for a share of the harvest (you) help (us) to maintain and support our small family farm. (You) in return, receive in-season produce every week, June thru October, which is fresh, locally grown by (us), and harvested within 36 hours of reaching (you). A typical weekly share is 3/4 of a bushel of food, or roughly 1-1/2 paper grocery bags heaping full of your favorite vegetables and herbs.

In addition to really tasty food, (you) will receive a shareholder newsletter, provided by (us), that keeps (you) updated on all the farm happenings, including farm photos, farmer observations, recipes for the vegetables found in your weekly box; and a special section known as "Peggy's Recipe Twists" featuring custom recipes from a family member hoping to be the next Iron Chef.
