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 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 do have a short summer program, too. Please visit our website at before May 23 for more information and to sign up for the summer program.

In August of 2014, we will begin taking applications for the regular 2014-15 season-also on our website.

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]
