Why join a CSA?
If all you want is a guaranteed bargain on food then a CSA is not for you. We cannot price compete with the huge
agro-business farms that have thousands of acres and employ many unsustainable practices such as: chemical use
on the soil and plants, heavy dependence on fossil fuels, droves of under paid workers of 'questionable residency
status', or pumping from ever dropping water tables. Our members do not want to support these other farming
systems that transport their products across multiple states and days. Our goals are to compete with freshness,
locality and being more 'organic' than 'certified organic' standards require.
We strive to give members more than they paid for by season's end and, more often than not our members get a
great deal, but there are no guarantees and no refunds. Each season has its own characteristics. Spring and Fall
have less bug pressure and more greens in the boxes. Summer is challenging due to pest, heat and water issues but
the variety is better. Winter has more than enough water and no bug pressure but low productivity due to the
temperatures. We take measures to increase the chances of a bountiful season, we try to mitigate weather and pest
problems but still there are no guarantees when nature is involved. Having said this, there are many benefits to
membership and some of them are:
Locally grown, hebicide free and pesticide free, fresh picked produce
Varieties of produce not seen often or at all at your store
Knowing your farmer personally, connecting with nature and knowing where your food comes from
Visiting the farm, petting some animals, learning how food is produced
Particpating in food production. Like having a garden but not having to care for it all the time
Meeting others interested in healthy food, particpation in community events and building community
Helping save the small diversified family farm from extinction
Decrease the carbon footprint of the food we eat
Increasing national security by increasing the availability of locally grown foods and reducing imports
A good chance at receiving a bargain in produce.
Volunteers. We have had good experience with volunteers from UT. If you know anyone who wants to volunteer
please pass on our name. Thanks.
We don't use nasty chemicals, we just grow good stuff
