Family Farms CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) gives you the opportunity to know your farmer. When you know your farmer you get to learn about where your food comes from and exactly how and just as importantly where it is grown. Through CSA programs families can receive a yearly share of the fresh seasonal produce grown on our farms. It is our mission to provide you, our community, with fresh produce grown locally and naturally.

Our members generally like vegetables and love to try new things. CSA is for members who want to commit to pre-paid produce. CSA memberships may differ and the delivery schedule and number of deliveries may vary. CSA memberships help maintain our cost for seed, fertilizers, labor, misc. equipment, etc. We plan and work throughout the year to provide our members with an equal share of produce. Each produce share is available for pick-up at the pre-designated location and time.

What Do You Receive

We currently offer shares in two different sizes including; small shares feeding about two people and large shares which feed about four people. Large shares receive a variety of six to eight different types of produce each week during the growing seasons and small shares will receive a variety of four to five different types of produce.

Along with your shares you will receive recipes on how to enjoy and store your fresh produce. Our farm currently grows many varieties of produce including vegetables, greens, and herbs; however, production is always dependent on weather conditions. We know that every family has different requirements and you may still need to supplement your needs with grocery purchases. Our goal is to provide our members with 30 weeks of the freshest, chemical-free, naturally grown produce delivered within hours of harvest instead of days and weeks. We always guarantee quality, flavor, & satisfaction.
