We are a small farm emphasizing sustainable and ethical practices. We focus on direct marketing through on-farm sales and a CSA share program. We have fresh produce for sale year-round but our main season is June through October. Our CSA share program provides you with 17 weekly boxes of fresh, tasty, local produce for $550 (2014 price). We use multi-tiered pricing, so you get a significant discount by signing up early. Half-shares are $300 for a full box every other week for 8 weeks (no early signup discount). Vacations are not a problem with our CSA program, as we just extend your season. We welcome visitors during the season but it is necessary to call first. Currently we are experimenting with low-impact efficiencies such as sheet mulching and hay bale culture, but we also depend on labor-intensive strategies. Our desire is to utilize the calorie-efficient human brain and hand, rather than the petrol-intensive tractor.
An anthropological perspective is a great boon to understanding current problems and solutions. Culture trumps economics - witness the growth of sustainable agriculture in the last 40 years. Peasant agriculture is still more efficient in caloric terms than industrial agriculture and small-scale solutions hold out greater hope to feed the world. First, grow some of your own food. Second, buy locally from farmers in your area. Third, make choices when shopping at the supermarket.

No Longer Blogging on Local Harvest
I am going to start blogging again since I have time in the winter, but it is just too difficult to post both on Local Harvest and on Blogspot. Therefore, if you want to follow my ramblings, go to http://fullattention.blogspot.com.
