And as if that wasn't great enough, youget access to our Recipe Box! The Recipe Box has wonderful recipes that incorporate  vegetables that you will get from the farm.

Our Forum is a great place to ask questions about the CSA , and anything really! You can post events, recipes, and interesting facts about yourself (if you want :) .

 

Below are articles from the 2008 Small Family CSA Newsletter archive.

As a member-farm of the Fair Share CSA Coalition, who created these two magnificent books, we are able to purchase these books at a bulk price and mark them up slightly to sell to our CSA members.  Doing this is a way of both supporting the Fair Share CSA Coalition, which is a Non-Profit Organization, and supporting our farm, and thus the community at whole.  If you're looking for new and creative ways to cook up all of your favorite, and curious, veggies consider buying these two books at checkout.

Hours of Operation:  Sunrise to Sunset,Monday thru Saturday

If you're planning a visit to the farm, please let us know in advance, especially if you would like some of our time to walk you around.  We are very busy people from March thru November and it always helps to have at least a 48 hour advance notice of visitors on their way!

A very general layout of what vegetables you can expect to see in your box and when.  This is by no means an exact layout of what you will receive and when.  This grid is based on what vegetables we have given in past years and about when we have been able to provide them.   Each season we try growing new varieites of vegetables and some may have different lengths of time to the date of maturity.  Some seasons are cooler or warmer or wetter and drier and vegetables can take longer or shorter to mature dependent partially on when we got them planted and partially on mother natures behavior.

Summer CSA BoxAt the Small Family CSA Farm, we plant, nurture and harvest your produce before we pack it in the box and deliver it to your designated drop off point. For twenty weeks the Small Family Farm will grow delicious vegetables for you, from the beginning of June through the end of October filled with the Midwest bounty. By being part of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, you share the risks and blessings with us through the fate of the unpredictable growing season. While a long, cool, wet Spring may be wonderful for our cool-weather-loving broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce and spinach, it may not be as helpful for heat-loving sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. Here are a few sample boxes depicted below.  Keep in mind that no two boxes will ever be the same from week to week or from season to season.
