2019 Season

The CSA season begins about the middle of May based upon spring emergence of Asparagus. The 20 week season will take us into September. If growing conditions are favorable we will be offering a four week extension. Some the crops included in the four week extension wil be 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 brought back red raspberries in 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 20-week share is $560 delivered or pick-up at the farm for $500. Add a weekly delivery of a dozen eggs from our free range chickens for just $3/dz ($30 for every-other-week or $60 for weekly delivery for the season). Members should expect to receive most of 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 possibilty of a crop failure is certainly a risk. We utilizie 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.
