You can still sign up for our 2014 vegetable CSA! We still have vegetable shares left, and we've also made a monthly payment plan available. Just contact us (phone or email), and we will sign you up to start any week of the season and pro-rate the cost of your share.
Midnight Sun Farm is a 15-acre farm located in the Prairie Crossing community of Grayslake, IL, and is owned and operated by Nick Choate-Batchelder and Becky Stark. We grow certified organic produce, and have a commitment to growing sustainably and selling locally, while maintaining a balanced natural ecology. We love growing vegetables and we love providing fresh, nutritious food to our families, our friends, and our community. 2014 will be our fifth year in business, and our seventh year of involvement in small-scale, organic farming. We sell our produce and eggs through farmers markets and through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Additionally, we offer pastured Thanksgiving turkeys for sale from the farm in the fall.
Our CSA members receive the equivalent of a full paper grocery bag of common and not-so-common vegetables every week (and sometimes honey or other treats), including suggestions on how to cook and store the produce. We consider a CSA subscription to be a great purchase if you and your family love vegetables, if you cook often, and if you enjoy being introduced to new ingredients.
Members of our CSA receive an abundance of fresh, organic produce weekly throughout the growing season! We have pick-up sites in Grayslake, Libertyville, Gurnee, Mundelein, Rogers Park, Oak Park, and Humboldt Park. Please see our website to sign up for 2014 vegetable and egg CSA shares.

The practice Nick and Becky put into their seedlings, plantings, and harvest, keeps everything fresh and lasting. The quality of food is simply hard to come by in Chicagoland.... [more]
