Farming Systems Research

This is almost the last farm left in this area-we've become surrounded by development. Although more of our acreage is in tomatoes (including heirloom varieties) than any other vegetable, we grow almost all the vegetables that can be grown here, at the times of year which are appropriate for them. Please note that, although we have a soil-building program using on-farm produced compost and we use an IPM program, we are not an organic farm.

Our growing season is the opposite of most farms in the country. Our CSA season is from Oct.-May. We also have a limited summer program.

In mid August, we will begin taking applications from new subscribers for the regular 2014-15 season-on our website at At that time there will be an application on the home page.

Please note that, although we appreciate seasonal prepayments, we do not require them. So, if you are a seasonal resident of this area, it is still possible for you to participate in our program.

My family has been a member since 2006 and will be signing up again this year. I love the mix of veggies & trying new ways to prepare them. Their produce has fantastic flavor - I really miss the tomotoes during off-season.... [more]

I've been a member for several years. It is worth getting on the waiting list. Great produce, fine people who treat their workers well.

Having been with this CSA for the entire 2007-2008 season, I can say that they exceeded my expectations in every way. The variety and quality of the produce along with their excellent customer service made us feel so lucky every week when we picked up our boxes.... [more]
