Becoming a member of our CSA operation is a special opportunity for you and your family to participate in the production of fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Farmer Larry is dedicated to using sustainable production practices that yield an abundant and healthy supply of produce for our members. But in addition to the benefits of knowing exactly where and how you food is grown, as well as the people who grow it, there are other compelling reasons to purchase directly from the farm: grocery-store produce typically reaches the shelves a full week after its picked, and middlemen drive the prices up dramatically. By buying locally, you save money and return a fair margin to the farmer. Although 2010 was one of the toughest growing seasons in recent history, with an unusualy hot and dry spring and summer that delayed the planting and harvest of many items, Good Life Farm still managed to deliver its members a bountiful harvest of fresh fruit and vegetables. By seasons end, members had the opportunity to receive 34 weeks of farm-fresh produce at a retail value of more than $1,800 a price well above the cost of a CSA membership. Good Life Farm continues the tradition of working with other local farms to bring the best variety and freshness to your table. We welcome your questions. We encourage to you to visit our farm.
