SHARES ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR  Summer 2018! 

What is a CSA?

CSA, short for "Community Supported Agriculture", is a unique type of direct farm marketing where we, the farmers, sell you, the members, the seasons crops in advance of the growing season.  Community Supported Agriculture  is about building a relationship between our farm and you, our customer. Rather than simply purchasing food, our customers become “members” of our CSA and receive a portion of the farm’s harvest. Click here to read more about CSAs in general.

 

How does it work?

When our growing season begins members will receive a "share" or portion of the crops available on a weekly basis. Our CSA runs for 16 weeks, June-September.  The exact start date will be determined as the growing season nears.

Members will join our CSA through an online sign up.  Members will choose the size of share that best fits their lifestyle and will be able to pay via check or online.  50% of the total payment in due upon sign-up and paying the remaining payment in installments is an option.  Full payment must be received by May 15th.

For 16 weeks from June through September, members will pick up a box of fruits and vegetables that are in season on the farm.  Pick up  is on Tuesdays between 3pm-6:30pm and is available on farm and at our Cty A farm stand.

 

Why join a CSA?

A CSA is a truly different relationship between farmer and eater! Farming is a bit of a risky business and as a CSA member you make a commitment to share in the risk.  By selling shares in advance it assists us with late winter and spring start up costs and we are getting a season long commitment from our members.  With the support of our members, we can focus on growing bountiful fruits and vegetables.

As a member, you receive a weekly share of fresh, seasonal, high quality produce picked at the peak ripeness.  Through the CSA members share in the joys and challenges of farming in Northeast Wisconsin.  It is a great opportunity to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into your cooking and try new things. Additionally you have the opportunity to participate in farm events.  We think that the greatest reward is developing a deeper understanding of how your food is produced and getting to know who grows it!  "Know your farmer, know your food"
