WHAT IS COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE?

Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program is an easy way for you to incorporate a variety of organic, culturally relevant vegetables, fruits, and herbs into your diet. In addition to the abundant fresh produce grown by our community farms, your CSA subscription includes specialty food items, like honey from our bee hives, cheese from Wisconsin, and fruit from nearby orchards. From May through October, your CSA will move through the seasons and include spring, summer, and fall crops.

Additionally, your CSA can be tailored to accommodate varying family sizes, food preferences, income levels, and payment methods. You can even compost your CSA food scraps with us or donate a CSA share to pay it forward!

All of the produce you receive through our CSA program is grown organically and harvested within 24 hours of you picking it up.

Thanks to the support of our CSA members, we are able to donate 50% of our produce to the community each year.

We hope you’ll join us for our 2024 CSA!

csa member testimony

“I’ve been a CSA member for one year now. I chose to become a member because I wanted to know exactly what was happening to my food. Being able to come volunteer (and eventually work) at the farm gave me a different sense of comfort knowing that I was aware of how my food was being grown and processed.” – Bria Macklin

What we grow

We grow 40 varieties of vegetables, fruits, and herbs. For most types of crops, we include variations, such as golden and red beets, and lacinato (or dino) and curly kale. These crops can come in different colors, shapes, and sizes and offer varying nutritional benefits and tasty meal options, depending on it.
