Full share of Hand Picked Farm CSA (23 weeks of fresh produce)
Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
Hand Picked Farm is offering shares for its first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) season in 2014! The season will stretch across 23 weeks Running June 6th through October 31st. Every week during this period shareholders (half shares get 12 pickups, every other week) will receive a portion of the harvest. This offers an excellent opportunity to eat seasonally and locally for a good portion of the year, as well as have a direct connection to the farm and farmer responsible for your food.
My primary focus as a grower and running a CSA is to offer the freshest possible vegetables, grown and picked for flavor and nutrition (as opposed to storage or shipability). Distributing produce directly to the community that has stake in the farm is the most direct farm-to-table arrangement. The produce you receive has been picked no more than 24 hours before distribution, preserving peak freshness and flavor.
Not only does the community benefit from having a healthy, sustainable farm and receiving top quality produce, but the farm benefits as well; the shares are pre-paid before the season starts, allowing the farmer to plan and purchase supplies without taking on a major debt-load. My goal is for the CSA to cover the operating and day-to-day costs of the farm. Farm expansion (buildings, equipment, land etc..) will be financed by sales of farm products outside the CSA, including local restaurants and our farm-stand.
