Madison Meadowlark CSA

Madison Meadowlark CSA is a partnership between a small farm in beautiful Southwest Montana and (starting in 2011) the Midway Hutterite colony farms near Conrad, MT.

Because of our unique partnership with the Hutterites, our members receive an amazing presentation of delicious vegetables with each share pickup. Members can also shop for other wonderful Hutterite staples at each pickup, such as naturally grown turkeys, chickens, bread, honey, and sauerkraut.

If you are a home-canner, in the summer we offer options to purchase large amounts of vegetables to store for winter. It's truly like having your own personal farmer's market, where the farmers know your name and look forward to greeting you each week.

The variety we provide is plentiful enough - you will find the trusted staples you already know how to cook...tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, corn, broccoli, peas, beans, and many more. We don't spend a lot of time growing things that you haven't heard of and don't recognize in favor of your favorites. You will find that our carrots taste sweeter and cleaner than store-bought carrots, and when you eat the last cob of corn, you will wish you had more.

We follow organic and natural, sustainable farming methods such as composting, companion planting, and carefully planned crop rotation. Our chosen fertilizers are renewable and fish-based, and do not harm the environment. Insects are controlled by organic methods (mostly through manual removal), though occassionally a small amount of an insecticide is used on cabbage.

When we MUST use an chemical item on a product, we choose an insecticide that is approved for use on organically grown produce and/or notify our members to what was applied.

It was an adventure every week, as I got a wealth of vegetables, most of which I recognized, many that I did not. I learned how to prepare the newbies (and learned that my family does not like Swiss chard, loves kohlrabi!), got enough green beans and pickling cukes to learn how to make dilly beans and pickles (OH MY YUM), and though I hope to develop my own garden in the future, I just couldn't pass up the ease and fun of signing up again this year....

Last year was the first time we did a CSA and we loved it!! We had friends that participated in a different one last year and they were jealous of the selection that we got each week.... [more]

Really enjoy the quality and variety of the produce I received in 2011. I actually participated in two local CSAs last year, and M.M. was by far the most rewarding.... [more]
