Our CSA offerings

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and is a model of direct marketing which benefits both the farmer and the customers. Subscribers pay the farmer in advance, and then receive a weekly share of fresh products from the farm during the specified season. In addition to receiving fresh, delicious products, subscribers get the added benefit of truly knowing their farmer and where their food comes from. To learn more about the CSA model, check out this ATTRA publication.

We have decided to take a break from offering a traditional vegetable CSA and instead are focusing on offering specialty shares. We offer the following options:

Heirloom and specialty tomato shares (certified organic)

Seasonal, organically grown floral shares

Artisanal farmstead cheese shares 


TOMATO CSA. Spots are limited! Fill out our application before June 1st!

Are you a serious tomato lover? Do you crave fresh, vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes all winter? Could you eat tomatoes every day in the summer? If you answered yes to these questions, our tomato CSA is for you!!! 

Starting around the first week of August (the date will depend on spring weather), our tomato shares will include 5 lbs of tomatoes weekly. (If 5lbs of tomatoes sounds like a lot, let me just say that we grow some varieties that weigh 2-3 lbs each!). Find a neighbor to share with, if you think it may be too much for you and your family, but I guarantee that I consume at least 10 lbs per week, easily. Think fresh salsa, think caprese salad, think tomato sandwiches, think pasta!

“My family LOVED this CSA because we go through lots tomatoes (salsa, sauce, bruschetta, Caprese, etc) and most importantly, they were the tastiest ones we’ve ever eaten.  We were given varieties that we’d never heard of and each week Sarah provided us with brief history and the preferred use for each one!  And each week there was a little “extra” surprise with our share - some garlic or sweet peppers or basil… I can’t wait for this year’s ” -Carolyn, 2017 shareholder

Shares will differ from week to week. Some weeks it will be exclusively heirlooms. Some weeks, lots of cherry tomatoes. Other weeks may include saucing tomatoes (aka canning tomatoes, plum tomatoes, etc). Most weeks I will also include bonus items, such as fresh basil, onions, cilantro and peppers, so that you may make fresh pasta sauce, or salsa.      

"Great variety and heavenly tomatoes!  This was such a neat experience to try and learn about different types of tomatoes." - Candace, 2017                  

You will receive your tomato share for 10 weeks. The cost of the share is $150. (Remember, you will also be receiving bonus produce through the season and may request larger quantities of saucing tomatoes as well). Our tomatoes are grown organically (certified through MOFGA) and the highest quality around. To sign up, please fill out the order form and send it in along with your payment.

We offer tips on keeping your shares vibrant, and throughout the season we offer a huge diversity of colors, textures and smells. 

We offer 2 share options- weekly or biweekly. Pick up your flowers once a week or every other week for twenty weeks, June through October.
