SunRise CSA

SunRise CSA is a small family farm growing healthy vegetables specifically for a summer-time CSA. We are passionate about growing the healthiest vegetables possible. We believe that good vegetables are the foundation for health, and so we grow using only certifiable organic inputs and sustainable practices, such as crop rotations, compost, and the best vegetable varieties.

We began growing for a CSA market in 2008 on land at the PA German Cultural Heritage Center. Since then we've moved to Oley, put up an 8 foot deer fence, and continued to grow naturally. We currently are focusing our growing efforts on summertime weeks when kids are out of school. The goal of the CSA is to offer great produce and to connect with friends.

We believe that Community Supported Agriculture is also Agriculture Supported Community. We recognize that we are one small part of our world that contributes to others by sharing the food we grow and the farm we grow on. Just as our members support us in our venture to grow, so we support our members by helping them eat healthier, understand agriculture, and have fun.

Here are the current terms for our CSA:

Produce pickup will be at our farm.

We grow for a 10 week summer season. Weather dependent, first harvest will be June 25th (Tuesday harvests) and harvest continues until August 23rd (Friday harvests). Final Harvest will be Saturday, August 31st, for all members. If first harvest needs to be postponed due to weather, the season will extend into September.

Harvest pick-up on Tuesdays is 10am-1:30pm. Harvest pick-up on Fridays is 3:00-6:30pm. You-pick is available during these hours.

Members may select either a Tuesday or Friday pickup.

A share costs $275. This is typically enough for a small family, but may not meet all of your vegetable needs. Families of one household may purchase a Large Family Share (double share) for $475 and may pick up either once or twice per week.

We harvest exactly what we will need for that day. If harvest is not picked up, it will be donated elsewhere.

We harvest an average of 7 different crops each week. Earlier in the season there is less; later in the season there is more.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you and God bless!

The Zechs do a superb job of offering high quality, fresh vegetables at a fair price. No pesticides or herbicides are ever used. My kids have fond memories of gorging themselves on cherry tomatoes at pick up time!... [more]
