Support your local farmer
Meet Dan Perkins, the guy who does the growing at Perkins’ Good Earth Farm. Dan, commonly known as the “Cover Crop Guy”, is a Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) and has 19+ years of organic growing experience. In short, Dan dreams about soil and veggies and cares deeply about soil health and growing the best veggies possible for YOU!
Julie facilitates the fabulous community of our CSA! Before having children, she taught high school English. Now she raises vegetables and four kiddos, cooks recipes new and old with farm-fresh produce, and teaches CSA success skills.
By purchasing your veggies as close to home as possible, you support our local economy AND you get the opportunity to see up-close-and-personal where and how your food is grown.
We invest in our soil and post-harvest handling. This means you receive organic, nutritious, safe, super-long-lasting veggies that taste amazing AND make you feel great!
Ever feel alone in this eating-well thing? When you become a farm member, you connect with other veggie lovers who support each other both in-person and online.
Cooking with our veggies can be as simple as tossing together a quick salad or as adventurous as breaking out that complicated new recipe you found online. We give you the veggie variety and guidance to cook the way you want to.
How CSA Works - Your Veggie Adventure Awaits
It starts with a commitment
You commit to support your farmer by paying ahead of time for your CSA share. We commit by growing your veggies in healthy, rich soil with Certified Organic practices that care for the earth and people.
From our fields
We harvest a variety of our best produce from our fields for your family.
Each week, you come to the farm and fill your box with clean, fresh, tasty produce as you walk the distribution line. If you're at a dropsite, we bring your veggies right to your neighborhood. Either way, you can grab your veggies and go or stay and chat with fellow veggie lovers.
To your kitchen
You get to cook with fresh-as-can-be-can't-find-in-the-grocery-store produce! Need support? Learn to cook from your farmer's online tutorials and our incredible farm community.
Julie and Dan have struck gold. They are growing and harvesting delicious, healthy produce every month of the year. What’s more, they are sharing this richness with our community! They’ve embraced the hard work the effort and entrepreneurship it takes to run a successful business, even during a pandemic. Forging this path hasn’t been easy but they have done it with kindness and values that build bridges. Our bodies and our town is a better place for their presence and invaluable efforts!

"My husband and I are new to CSA, and we really like trying new recipes and greens you don't typically see at the local grocery store. CSA helped us focus more on eating healthier because we had all these veggies in the fridge to eat before we'd get another round. I learned that veggies can be made tasty and started to look forward to eating them more often at mealtimes."

I was a total newbie to many aspects of being a part of a CSA. The resources provided on what the items were, how to store, and frankly how to eat them were invaluable! It took the fear and intimidation right out of the equation!
