Our CSA

This is our Sixteenth year operating a Summer Subscription Program, or CSA. Over the years we have upsized and downsized, we’ve done a lot of experimenting, and we’ve learned a lot about how to keep subscribers happy. We’ve found that the perfect number of subscribers is 200. We start accepting applications in January.

We also offer great perks for our subscribers: Free all you can pick peas and beans (and possibly more) in our u-pick areafarm maps for self-guided toursfarm-kids’ club, and summer farm pot-lucks!

CSA Subscribers may also purchase an Egg Subscription to guarantee farm-fresh eggs for their family throughout the season. There are a limited number of Egg Shares available, so please contact us for more information and availability.

    Lovely & informatived blog, thanks! Will you be listing what crops will be in the shares each week so we can plan menus a few days before pick-up? Also, when will the u-pick herb & flower farms be opening? Can you tell I’m eager to get picking?
    Blessings,
    susan

    • I am planning on providing a menu at least a day before we start picking for the week. Sometimes it’s difficult to know for sure what we will be picking, but I will provide what information I can. U-pick herbs and flowers will be open later—we haven’t even planted any of them yet. We generally open them within the first few weeks of the Summer Season.

  2. Are there opportunities for U-pick? If we pick up at your farm, will we be able to visit with the animals?
    thanks

    • Yes, as a subscriber, you are welcome to come to the farm and u-pick flowers and herbs any time, plus peas, snap beans, and pumpkins while in season. Those items are free for subscribers. And yes, when you come to the farm you are able to walk everywhere on the farm, including visiting the animals and seeing your food plants growing.

  3. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to your blog before but after going through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to
    me. Nonetheless, I’m certainly delighted I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking
    it and checking back often!
