We are excited to announce our 2012 CSA! We're currently accepting sign-ups, and joining now provides us with working capital for our infrastructure projects, soil amendments, and seed. It also guarantees your spot for Spring!

We're offering Full Season (27-week shares), starting in April and running until the week prior to Thanksgiving. We're also dividing the season into two shorter sessions - 10 weeks (April-June) and 17 weeks (late July-November).

Full Season: Beginning April 25th (for Wednesday deliveries, April 28th for Saturday folks), and running a total of 27 weeks (with a three week break during July). Our weekly share is comprised of an average of $20/wk of fresh, seasonal produce from our farm. We have a limited number of egg shares available (Chicken and/or Duck eggs - and may have Quail eggs later in the season!), and will be offering our meats on a weekly, special order basis.

First Session: 10 weeks (April 25th - June 30th) $220

Second Session: 17 weeks (July 25th - Nov 17th) $374

Full Season: If you sign up for the Full Season, you'll receive one week for FREE! $572

** Share prices include $2 per week for administrative, packaging and drop-off costs.

Eggs Share: Weekly - Free-range chicken and duck eggs from our lovely ladies. $5/dozen chicken, and $5/ half dozen duck eggs.

Don't worry - if you happen to be traveling or have a conflict, you may let us know (at least 24 hours in advance) and we'll either double up for you the following week, or you can have someone else pick-up for you.

This Season we are looking forward to a beautiful and delicious bounty: Peas, Onions, Leeks, Potatoes, Broccoli, Broccoli Raab, Kohlrabi, Cabbage, Kales, Spinach, Arugula, Sorrel, Salad Mixes, Head Lettuces, Swiss Chard, Mustard Greens, Mizuna, Rapini, Tatsoi, Yukina Savoy, Pak Choi, Komatasuna, Radicchio, Bulb Fennel, Cress, Radishes, Turnips, Beets, Carrots, Beans, Cucumbers, Edamame, Tomatoes, Peppers, Okra, Tomatillos, Eggplant, Watermelons, Honeydew, Cantelope, Specialty Melons, Sweet Corn, Summer Squashes & Zuchini, Celeriac, Cauliflower, Winter Squashes, Pumpkins, Spaghetti Squash, Collards, and Chinese Cabbage.

We raise our animals naturally, and on pasture - and our produce is carefully, lovingly, and sustainably tended as well. Our aim is toward diversity in every sense, with a multi-species animal focus, and a wide range of crop-production. This year we're planning some exciting new experiments - a variety of small grains (Wheat, Rye, Buckwheat, Amaranth, Barley, Oats, Dent/Flint Corns and Sorghum), a wider offering of herbs - culinary and medicinal, and tiger nuts/chufa!

PICK-UPS Wednesdays: On-Campus at Duke University (3-4pm) and Fullsteam Brewery (5-7pm)

Saturdays: Pick-up in Durham (10-1130) and Carrboro Noon-1:30pm (locations TBD)
