2018 CSA Options
Community supported agriculture is a relationship between a community of individuals and a farm or collection of farms. This community pledges their support by purchasing "shares" of produce or other farm products in advance of the season in order to help farmers pay for seed and other early costs. When the season begins, the community enjoys the bounty of the farm which empowers us to steward the land throughout the year.
We are excited to offer two CSA models this year that include the full bounty of the farm: seasonal garden vegetables, grass-fed beef, raw dairy, pastured pork and free ranged chicken eggs to name a few! We are thankful and excited to be in partnership with fellow Henry County farmers at Pink Elephant Farm and Kitchen. If you haven't already, be sure to check out their great work on their 27 acre organic and bio-dynamic farm at www.pinkelephantfarm.com
The Full Diet CSA is year round and includes veggies, meats (beef, pork, poultry), dairy, eggs, fruits, grains, and other pantry items like lacto-fermented veggies, honey, sorghum, bone broth, and cooking fats. This CSA option is fully customized by you each week through the online order form–you choose exactly what you want; it arrives at your door a few days later. This is great option for small or large households who wish to get most of their foods from local, sustainable sources. Learn more and sign up here.
The Veggie + Egg CSA is more like a “traditional” CSA in that we will compose a mix of veggies from our two farms, picked at peak freshness and nutrition, along with one dozen of our pastured eggs. You can expect 8-12 items each week, and like the Full Diet CSA, is delivered to your door. This is a great option for a family or household who want fresh, seasonal veggies, regularly cooks at home, and is open to trying the sometimes unfamiliar veggie, like fennel, beets, eggplant, okra, or arugula (of course, these are some of our favorite veggies!). Typically, we’re also able to offer some items in bulk, like tomatoes for canning, or extra basil for pesto making. Learn more and sign up here.
ULTIMATELY, JOINING ANY CSA MEANS SHIFTING THE PERENNIAL DINNER QUESTION FROM “WHAT DO I WANT?” TO “WHAT IS AVAILABLE?”. IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO PARTNER WITH A FARM TO EXPERIENCE FLAVORS AT THEIR PEAK OF BOTH TASTE AND NUTRITION.
