Small Family Farm CSA

We Dig Vegetables

 

At 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.

When you sign up to become a member of the CSA, you’ll receive either a weekly or Bi-Weekly Summer Share in a 3/4 bushel box filled with certified organic, local, and seasonal produce! You’ll also receive our Weekly Dig Newsletter with a few short paragraphs about what has been happening on the farm, recipe ideas, photos from the farm and handling/storage tips for your veggies.

A Weekly Summer Share can feed 2-4 hungry adults who incorporate vegetables into their diet.  It can be very hard to predict how many people a share can feed because some familes are vegetarian, some mostly vegetarian and some use meat as the main entree at every meal.  Some families prepare every meal from scratch at home, while others eat out regularly.  It is our goal to enchant you with the beauty of our glowing, farm fresh, seasonal produce to the point where eating anything other than your amazingly fresh, home cooked meals becomes sub par.  Suddenly, eating out doesn't sound quite as good anymore.  Slowly, you begin to live and breath life into a thriving local food economy and this feels fulfilling and wholesome to you.  Join the fun!
