Kruse Family Farm CSA

We are open for up to 12 members in the Wells area. For Members living within wells we can deliver. If you live outside of Wells then please contact us and we can probably work something out.

1 basket of produce per week starting June 6 and ending Oct. 31 for a total of 22 baskets. Baskets include approximately 20 lbs of produce, though often times it is more when for example there is potatoes or watermelon.

We are growing beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cucumber, eggplant, green beans, green onions, hot peppers, kale, lettuce, onions, peas, potatoes, radishes, salad mix, spinach, sweet corn, sweet peppers, rhubarb, fresh herbs, watermelon, muskmelon, squash, pumpkins, kohlrabi, leeks, and flowers.

In addition the subscription includes on a biweekly basis: a loaf of bread from the Wells Bakery, a newsletter with recipes, and a bar of hand crafted soap. Once per month is included a bag of granola which weighs a little over a pound.

The total product breakdown comes to about 450lbs of produce, 7lbs of granola, 11loaves of bread and 11 bars of soap for $500.00.

We grow all of our vegetables using the Eliot Coleman method of organic farming. This just means that it's a soil based method. Our primary focus is on soil fertility and this in turn produces healthy plants. We do not use any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. Rather, we use clover as a cover crop and rely on strategic planting methods to maximize the plants natural resilience. The soil that we are planting on has not had chemicals on it for 5 years, though we have not been certified by the FDA as organic.

Our weekly share from Little Green Heron always had an abundance of quality produce, including some things we had never tried before, but were glad for the opportunity to try them now.... [more]
