What is a share?

Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program is a great way for you to connect and support local farmers. In exchange for supporting you get great-tasting, always fresh produce.

 

One share is geared to provide produce for a family of 2 Adults and 2 Small Children.  Larger families may want to consider purchasing two shares.

 

When you join, you are not just buying vegetables, you are supporting sustainable farming practices and contributing to a reliable, healthy, local food supply and income for the farmers, and your food tastes great!

Fresh Grown Produce At A Fair Price

Based on the Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) model, people purchase annual shares in the farm’s harvest and, in return, receive weekly food baskets full of fresh produce throughout the season. Consumer demand for locally produced, affordable fresh food has driven the evolution of CSAs. The weekly harvest is shared between all members, with variety and quantity varying with the time of year.

Customize Your Basket

There will always be in your basket 6 of the standard fresh vegetables such as carrots, cooking onions, potatoes, carrots, sometimes apples, tomatoes or green onions plus our homegrown lettuce and spinach. You can also choose 5 more items from a list of  fruits and vegetables that will be available each week. The total number of items in your basket per week will be 11.

Unlike some CSA programs, every fruit and vegetable is hand-selected by us, and most of it is planted, grown and picked by us, here at our farm in Minesing. We are the farmer!
