THE PRODUCE

We grow over 45 kinds of vegetables, fruits and herbs; in total over 125 varieties of produce! 

We grow several varieties of each kind of produce to help prevent crop losses. For example, we plant 4 varieties of red watermelons each year that are very similar in size and taste. If disease affects one variety, it's unlikely that it would affect all 4 varieties. Having multiple varieties of each kind of produce is a buffer from crop failure for us and our Members. 

We grow multiple plantings of the more popular varieties so we can provide them with more frequency. We've been fine tuning our planting schedule for years; taking pride in providing the most complete variety of produce throughout the season while emphasizing in the produce that our members really want.

Join us this season to get a thorough understanding of what it means to eat seasonally. We have got a lot to offer and we are excited to share it with you! 

MORE FRUIT

We provide our Members with Strawberries, Blueberries, Red Watermelon, Yellow Watermelon, Muskmelon and Honey Crisp Apples at no additional charge.

 

For the 2019 Season, we are happy to announce we are doubling the Strawberries in our CSA Shares!

During the 2018 season we included fruit in 8 of the 16 weeks of our CSA, and some of those weeks we had more than one kind of fruit.

This doesn't happen just by chance; this is the result of carefully calculated growing plans and a successful harvest reflecting your preferences. Consider signing up for your CSA Share sooner than later to reserve your Share of our Harvest!
