CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”
Developed in the 1960’s in Japan, CSA's are designed to build direct relationships with farmers and their community. Members buy shares before the season begins, and then reap the benefits of the harvest every other week as the season progresses. CSA members agree to the fluctuation and variations that often occur in farming, and understand that their produce will be grown with organic, sustainable farming practices and a whole lot of love. Joining our CSA is a fantastic way to support us directly, because it provides funds to us at a crucial time during the beginning of the season and guarantees a home for our produce in the Summer and Fall.
What our members can look forward to
Each member will pick up a bi-weekly (every other Wednesday) tote bag of fresh, organically grown vegetables and / or microgreens from the farm. Our carefully selected varieties and sustainable growing practices bring out the very best in flavor and nutrition. Produce is harvested when it's ripe, just before you receive it. Members can enjoy peace of mind knowing that everything is grown with love and respect for our planet, meeting or exceeding that of WSDA Organic protocols.
What we grow
Arugula, Beans, Beets, Blackberries, Broccoli, Carrots, Cucumbers, Eggs, Eggplant, Fennel, Herbs, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Microgreens, Onions, Peppers, Radishes, Snap Peas, Spinach, Summer Squash, Salad Mix, Swiss Chard, Tomatoes, Turnips, Zucchini.
Are our vegetables organic?
Yes, except in one important sense: we're not certified organic by the WSDA. In the future we will be certified, but currently we grow on leased land, so the paperwork and costs don't make sense right now. In the future, when we purchase our own land, organic certification will be at the top of our list. Until then, rest assured we rigorously follow organic practices here on the farm: we use no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, we use no GMOs, and we use lots of compost to nourish the soil.
Your bi-weekly veggie club share may include: a bag of spicy or sweet spring mix, a bunch of sweet carrots or beets, a bunch of baby bok choy or kohlrabi, a bunch of rainbow chard or curly kale, cherry tomatoes or cucumbers, and a package of pea shoots or micro radish. Our members also have the option of adding our free range rainbow chicken eggs ($7 dozen) and / or fresh-cut flowers from Sage Hill Farms in Chelan ($15 bouquet) to each CSA pick up. Miranda's Mom, Corina, is the owner and grower at Sage Hill and she is so excited to take part in our CSA this season.
Why buy from us?
As consumers, we've all become accustomed to buying fruits and veggies shipped from all over the world, regardless of the season. Shipping food takes time, resources and energy. This also means that these fruits and veggies are harvested long before they are ripe in order to make the journey. This typically long journey sacrifices nutritional value, flavor and overall quality of the produce. By choosing us, we ensure that you are eating the freshest, most nutrient dense, best tasting food possible, while supporting a small local farm and being environmentally responsible at the same time. Thank you for supporting the farm and our Veggie Club. Farm on!
