CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It's a food distribution model where farmers and individual community members become partners. They share the risks to bring about a bountiful harvest each season. Every CSA program is unique to that particular farm, but it's all about fresh & locally grown food.
Members purchase a share of the future crops to fund the upfront operating costs of land, seeds, water, and equipment. In return, they receive freshly harvested, local food straight from the fields all season.
Farmers invest their time, knowledge, and labor into planning & cultivating the crops for the whole season. They benefit from having their crops pre-sold.
Together they strengthen health, economy, and food security of the local community.
- To eat fresher & healthier foods
- To know where your food comes from
- To try new veggies and varieties
- To learn about the seasons in your area
- To support a local farm and local economy
We are growing the following crops on our farm : Beets, Cabbage, Cantaloupe, Carrots, Cucumbers, Green Beans, Green Onions, Lettuce, Onions, Peppers, Pumpkins, Potatoes, Radish, Snap Peas, Tomatoes, Watermelons, & Zucchini. Additionally, you will get Cherries, Corn, & Peaches that will be sourced from another local farm.
Our drive-through pickup will be at our Orem farm store : 710 West 2000 South, Orem UT 84058. Your food will be freshly harvested and coming straight from our fields to your car.
You can choose to pickup every week on
Tuesday evenings from 4:00pm - 8:00pm
- OR -
Saturday mornings from 8:00am – 12:00pm.
The first pickups will be June 29, 2021 or July 3, 2021. The last pickups will be August 24 or 28, 2021.
Please consider the amount you spend in one year on groceries. The cost of a membership is a small percentage of this budget but makes a lasting impact on your local farms!
"We looked forward to seeing your smiling faces, even if behind masks! It was so gratifying to help support your carefully, locally grown food! It was fun, and we have been recommending you!"
"I felt like this was really worth it. Everyone was so friendly and nice."
"I loved how low-waste all the pickups were, and how the majority of things were organic! Definitely something that will incentivize me to come back next year. "
"I loved participating the whole season. It was a wonderful thing to look forward too every week."
"We loved it! I think you guys did a great job. When our watermelon turned out to not have any flavor in it you guys were awesome and gave us a new watermelon plus a bag of apples just in case -- that was the best! "
"It was very easy for us to use and a lot of fun. For me each pick up was like Christmas."
"Loved the entire season! Made many new dished due to the veggies and fruit we received."
"This was my first time participating in a CSA, I thought you were very organized and friendly."
"You guys did a great job running this even with COVID happening! What a crazy year! It was well set up and well thought through and organized. I loved driving up, picking up and being able to head out."
Yes, monthly payment plans are available if you sign up before April 1, 2021. To get on a payment plan, just email your desired pickup day to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each week, you will receive an email showing what we are planning to include in that week's bag. Please keep in mind, changes may be made on harvest day based on what's actually in the field. As more variety is available later on in the season, choices may be offered. We are happy to swap items when possible.
We don’t have a half option (every other week) this year. Instead of us coordinating everyone’s on and off weeks, we hoped that individuals could plan amongst each other. If one share is too big for you, we hope you can find a friend who would be willing to share it with you!
Weather permitting, we usually have extra dozens of corn, boxes of tomatoes, boxes of peaches, and boxes of potatoes that you can buy when available.
Occasionally something less than satisfactory slips through, like a bad watermelon. We are always willing to replace or exchange any unsatisfactory items.
That depends! Each bag is designed to be a supplement to your normal groceries for a family of 4. If you have a bigger family, or eat plant based, or cook often at home, you might consider buying more than one share. If there's only a couple people in your home, you might consider sharing a membership with someone else.
We plan for each week to include one large paper grocery bag filled with produce. The season starts out slow and then gets heavier as yields peak, so there may be a second paper bag (or large melon).
The first weeks will most likely include lettuces, radishes, peas, cherries, and beets. Soon zucchini, potatoes, carrots, corn, cabbage, and green beans come on. Then finally the melons, tomatoes, peppers, peaches, and onions. You can read more about when your favorite things are in season on our blog here.
Everything grown on our own fields is organic. This means we do not use any GMO or chemically treated seeds. We use green manures and crop rotation. We do not use chemical herbicides or pesticides. We do not chemically wash or treat anything after harvest.
The Cherries, Corn, and Peaches you receive are the exception. They are not organic as they are sourced from other Utah farms.
We can make accommodations with at least one week advance notice. If a conflict in schedule comes up, please consider having a friend, relative, or neighbor pickup on your behalf. Any bags that are not picked up will be donated to Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry to feed someone in need.
We love to have CSA members schedule a family field tour to come see exactly where their food is coming from. This can be done anytime between June and August.
We hope you will give us the chance to replace and trade out any bad items, but in the event that you are very unhappy with the CSA program, we will offer a refund of any remaining weeks.
