There's only 300 spots left for the coming summer season!
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 a definite market for their food.
Together they strengthen health, economy, and food security of the local community.

We are growing the following crops organically 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 but non-organic farm.
Pickup is every week on Tuesday evening from 4:00pm - 8:00pm - OR - Saturday morning from 8:00am – 12:00pm.
For Tuesday members, the first pickup is June 29, 2021 and the last pickup is August 24, 2021. For Saturday members, the first pickup is July 3, 2021 and the last pickup is August 28, 2020.
Our drive through pickup will be at our Orem farm store : 710 West 2000 South, Orem UT 84058. Your food will be freshly harvesting and coming straight from the fields.
Everything grown on our own fields is organic. This means we do not use any GMO or chemically treated seeds. We use bone & blood meals, as well as 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 local farms.
Before each pickup, you will receive an email showing what we are planning to include in that week's bag. As more variety is available later in the season, there may be weeks where you can choose between two different mixtures.
The season starts out slow and then gets heavier as yields peak in August. 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 things are in season on our blog here.
That depends! Each bag is designed to be a supplement to your normal groceries for a family of 4-6. If you have a bigger family, eat plant based, or cook a lot 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.
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.
If there's a conflict in schedule, 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.
