Community Supported Agriculture

 
 

The gist.

We pick it, you eat it.

Each week, Meredith and I harvest a variety of crops, just as they’ve reached their prime and are ready to eat. From the harvest, we’ll fill a couple tote bags full of vegetables for you to take home. My goal is to provide you with the best tasting vegetables that you’ll enjoy over the course of a week. Once you’ve finished those, the next harvest will be ready for you.

 

Value & Price

As compared to prices at the farmers market, the value of each week’s share will always exceed $30. With the total price of the CSA at $600 and at least 20 weeks of distribution, this means you’re getting more than your money’s worth.

Signing up and paying at the beginning of a season helps my business immensely- it reduces the risk of not being able to sell what I grow and helps with my cash flow during a time when I’m spending a lot on seeds, compost, tools and infrastructure. I hope to express my gratitude over the course of the season by giving you more delicious food than you paid for. Thank you!

To be frank, I want to think about money as little as possible. I prefer to get payments out of the way in the beginning so I can simply grow food and give it to you. There’s nothing better than being able to share the food you grow with others.
