2015 CSA Sign Ups!

2014 was definitely an interesting year. We as a family, as a farm, and in our CSA community faced a number of challenges. We had chicken thefts (darn foxes), infestations, seed failures, a late Spring and thus late start to the season, some family illnesses, back injuries, and the like.

Despite our challenges we have had a number of successes in 2014 too. We got to meet new CSA sharers, new people at market, and maintain a relationship with many wonderful people. We grew delicious beets, better kale, more herbs - not to mention a crazy amount of dill and beans. We also had our first beautiful crop of strawberries come in.



 Every year comes with its ups and downs. We are looking forward to the year 2015 and have begun our planning and preparations. The fields were prepared this fall so we have a jump-start come this spring. With our review of what worked and didn't work last year we are doing up our wish-list of seeds to buy

Our registration for 2015 CSA is open. Now is the time to get signed up and start making payments so we can have early-bird access to more seeds and better prices. We have set a goal of March 15th for initial payments to be made. We are open to payment arrangements.

For this year we have slightly changed how the shares are set up. We now offer 16 week shares in Small, Medium, and Large sizes for $20, $30, and $40 respectively per week.

Fill out registration here for yourself, or to give as a gift (we can provide gift certificates)!
