What is COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE?

 It's a way for you, as a consumer, to partner directly with your local farm by signing up for a subscription of fresh fruits and veggies.  


Farming is a risky business! 

Each spring, we plant thousands of dollars in the dirt. We take care of those seedlings & plants for months, hoping to eventually get something back. We monitor the weather closely because one extra cold night, a huge wind gust, or hailstorm can ruin a whole crop.  


Instead of the farmer taking these risks alone, CSA members invest in a share of the summer crops. The payment you make now helps cover all the costs of preparing the fields, ordering seeds, setting up irrigation, and planting. All of these things happen long before anything is ready to harvest or eat. 


Once the season begins, members get to share in the bounty. You will receive freshly harvested, in-season fruits and vegetables based on the frequency you choose. We have the following three options : 

What do I get each week?

Each time you pickup, you will get to choose your own $25 value mixture of in-season fruits & veggies from what we have available.  An example in late July might include: 1 pint of cherries, 1 quart of new potatoes, 1 head of lettuce, 1 bunch of beets, 1 half pint of raspberries, and 1 zucchini. If the weather & yields are good, we will have extras available to add on each week. 


Review our "What's in Season" guide to get an idea of when things usually come into season. We will do our best to give you a good variety each week, but the early season is more greens/vegetable heavy and the later season is more fruit heavy. Remember, farming depends heavily on the weather. Some crops may come early, late, or not turn out at all. 


The majority of the produce you will get is grown on our organic farm. However, we do bring in berries, peaches, apples, pears & cherries from non-organic, local farms. Everything is grown locally in Utah by farmers we trust, and we will answer any questions you have about where something comes from.
