Sorry, we are sold out for our 2014 summer share program!
Stearns Farm CSA is a non-profit corporation funded primarily by the sale of shares in the harvest, with help from volunteers, foundations, and individual donors.
Our Mission: Preserving the historic Stearns Farm as a sustainable garden while providing locally and naturally grown food in partnership between the land, the farmer, and the community.
When you join a CSA you buy a "share" of the harvest. During the growing season you come to the farm each week and collect vegetables harvested only minutes before. We are talking FRESH! We use no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. NATURALLY GROWN with full flavor! We are talking the HEALTHIEST produce you can buy (at a price lower than supermarket Organic)!
A share feeds a family of four or a couple on a vegetarian diet. Vegetables are chosen for flavor, nutritional value, and to support biodiversity. The mix and amount depend on the season and growing conditions.
When you join a CSA you strengthen the local economy by keeping your food dollars close to home. You only pay for the farmer's salary, seeds, and equipment. You do not pay a middleman to package, advertise, transport, and add preservatives to your food.
Each sharer provides 12 hours of farm labor for a full share or 6 hours for an alternate-week share. Most sharers enjoy coming out for a few hours between April and October to plant or weed or harvest. You meet wonderful people and learn exactly how your food is grown.
A CSA is a partnership in which the farmer and consumer share the risk of agriculture and the bounty of a good harvest. We reduce the risk of crop failure by planting over 40 vegetables and using all natural, sustainable growing methods that increase soil fertility and keep plants healthy.
