2017 Season

The CSA season begins about the middle of May based upon spring emergence of Asparagus. The 24 week season will take us to mid October, long enough to harvest crops like Brussels Sprouts and Winter Squash. In response to customer requests we are trying to include small fruits in the shares more often. The blueberry patch was expanded in 2014, and we are bringing back red raspberries for 2017 after several years absence. We will deliver to your home or office or you may pick-up at the farm on Fridays. The cost per 24-week share is $600. Members should expect to receive all the items in the list below over the course of the season.

Being a member of a CSA means you act as our partners. The possibility of a crop failure is certainly a risk. We utilize several practices that minimize the potential for crop failures including drip irrigation, the use of insect netting barriers, and high tunnel and row covers for frost protection.

We also participate in The Bellefonte Farmers’ Market . This is a grower’s only market that takes place at the Gamble Mill parking lot. Market hours are 8 to noon from late April thru October.
