We offer four (4) separate CSA seasons during the calendar year: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall with each being 11 weeks in length.
We find the shorter seasons work well with member's budget and vacation plans. We typically take a 2 week break between each season to spend some personal "re-charge" time and catch up farm work, repairs, and planning.
The following is a summary description of our three (3) Veggie/Fruit Shares (Family, Single/Couple, Half), Market Share, and additional add-on options. Choose the one best suited for you and your family's eating habits and lifestyle. Members may change their shares and skip weeks during the CSA Season with an appropriate adjustment to the member's account. Your Share selection is made on the Application Page.

All of the beef, pork, chicken and lamb are raised from birth on our community area small family farms. The farmers keep their animals on pasture and supplement their grazing with hay, minerals, and minimal grain. Our partner farmers do not use added hormones, growth stimulants, or antibiotics.
The Meat Share package cuts will save you 10 - 20% when compared by cut to our A La Cart prices. Each Meat Share package will weigh 10 - 13 pounds.
We offer 3 Meat Share packages during each 11 week CSA. For each Meat Share package delivery, you must choose a package from our Meat Share Package selections. Each cut will be fresh or recently frozen in order to deliver the cut in a safe manner.
