Looking for 2013 Delta Sun Farm CSA Members
By: Four Sides Farm (May 15, 2013)
I was a member of the Delta Sun Farm CSA in 2012 and had a pretty good experience even though there was not much communication like I had with other CSAs. My wife and I decided to sign up again for the 2013. I have tried to contact them for the last week and I found out today that they have moved and there will not be a 2013 season. So at this point I am out the money, but this has given me the push I needed to start my own CSA. I had been gearing up for a more fruit oriented CSA starting next year. I am looking for other Delta Sun Farm CSA members that might not have a CSA this year after they have paid.
Our CSA is only going to cost $75 for the year. I am not looking to make the money I lost back and all of the money given will go directly into buying plant starts and herbs that I had not planned on growing. I have a passion for growing and I am looking to get a customer base started for next year. Luckily I am sort of a seed hoarder so I have over bought lots of seeds already. I am open to growing anything that someone wants so if you have a request let me know. I am not looking for lots of customers and there will be a limit to the number of members. I am looking for Delta Sun CSA members that might have a bad feeling about CSAs and the Local Food Movement.
This year we will have Strawberries, Yellow & Red Raspberries, Blackberries, Pears (from my grandparent's homestead), Peaches & Cream corn, Roma II green beans, Buttercrunch lettuce, snow peas (fall), 2 types of eating pumpkins, summer squash, tomatoes, lima beans, okra, kale (fall), and radishes. And I am open to suggestions. Also I have chickens and I will be providing eggs as soon as the pullets I bought 10 weeks ago are laying. This will probably be late July. The goal is for the CSA to last until early November, but will be up to mother nature.
How we grow. We do not spray any pesticides on anything even organic pesticides. We utilize compost made on site from our vegetable waste, chicken bedding and we also have a worm farm. We harvest rainwater and make compost tea from the worm bin dirt and spray the plants with the tea.
Thank you for looking. Four Sides Farm firstname.lastname@example.org

are your seeds GMO free, organic or heirloom ?
