CSA

Our farm produces a wide array of produce and other goods. Spring brings early greens and a diverse selection of seedlings and potted perennials. Summer is a kaleidoscope of color and taste, with garden favorites like beans, summer squash, tomatoes, and peppers filling our bushel baskets. Fall brings in the harvest for winter's darkening days but with season extension techniques, we sell greens year round. With the larders full of garlic, onions, carrots, beets, and squash, storage crops then dominate. Winter is the time for sugar sweet spinach, spicy arugula, and other cold tolerant crops.

     
MARKET MONEY CSA SHARES
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a system designed  to help small farmers access much needed revenue at the beginning of the growing season when many purchases need to be made - potting soil, seeds, soil amendments- so we can provide our supporting communities with the freshest, most vibrant produce over the growing season.
