The benefits of participating in a CSA are many. As a member you will not only enjoy all of the food but you will also know exactly where your food is grown and who grows it. All of our produce is organically grown, which means no pesticides and no herbicides. In a time of increasingly industrialized food production and the environmental problems that accompany it, won't it be good to know where your food is coming from?
During the course of a season we raise over 50 varieties of vegetables that will go into our CSA box. Each box will have from 6 to 12 varieties of farm fresh, "picked at peak of harvest" vegetables. Our season will start out with kales, collards, brocolli, cabbage, onions, strawberries, lettuces and other cool season greens. Summer brings us into the tomatoes, peppers, corn, melons, cantaloupe, blackberries, potatoes, squashes, cucumbers, beans and eggplants. Fall will wrap up the season with perineal favorites like sweet potatoes, butternut, acorn squash, pumpkins, arugula, tatsoi, kales, and other greens.
