Community Supported Agriculture

A weekly veggie adventure within a community of fellow veggie lovers.

What is CSA?

A CSA is a partnership between a farm and a community of members who choose to share the risks and enjoy the rewards of the farm.

Here’s how it works: You purchase a “share” of crops, and we provide you with fresh, safe, organiclly grown produce every week.

Because you’re sharing the risks and rewards, you get to experience the ups and downs of the season just like we do. For instance, one season we might have a bumper crop of tomatoes but a poor showing of peppers, so you get plenty of tomatoes and not so many peppers. The next season, carrots may steal the show while baby salad greens do so-so, so you get plenty of carrots and an average amount of salad greens.

Besides the oh-so-tasty veggies, rewards of being a farm member also include access to pick-your-own items, forage items, the beauty of our prairie/wooded walking trail, a children’s play area, invitations to our seasonal farm events, and access to our private CSA Member Facebook group.

What’s in a CSA Share?

We separate our CSA into four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. This way you can choose which season works best for you--or you can simply choose three seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall) with our CSA Bundle option.

One of our goals is to provide veggie variety. Weather and nature permitting, this is the produce you should expect in your CSA share, with 5-10 items per week for Medium and Large shares, 4 items per week for Small share.

Amounts of each item depend on your share choice, with the goal to provide you the amount of produce you’d eat in a week.

Large Share--feeds 4-6 omnivores | Medium Share--feeds 2-3 omnivores | Small Share--feeds 1 omnivore

What’s a Sliding Scale? Why do we use one?

We’ve had people tell us we don’t charge enough for our produce. We’ve also had people tell us they wish they could have access to organic veggies, but they can’t afford it.

You're part of a community made up of your neighbors and fellow townspeople, all who come from different life situations.  We want our produce to be accessible to all, so we use a sliding scale for payment.

For additional convenience, we offer payment plans and work-for-a-share options. Simply choose that option during check-out.
