What is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Farm Share?
Our “CSA Farm Share” is a subscription (much like a magazine or Netflix subscription) for 20 weeks. You, the “Member ” purchase in advance a “Share” of our harvest. Then starting in mid-May the Member will come weekly to one of two pickup locations and receive their harvest.
First, it is important to understand that a CSA Farm Share is both an investment and a risk for the farmer and the member. Together we are sharing in the risks and rewards of farming. We have to understand that we are growing in the Flathead Valley, which has unpredictable weather (summer hail and frost, drought, fire) and an average of 120 frost free days. Other risks include: insect and disease pressures as well as soil fertility, which we mitigate using methods that comply with organic standards. If you ever have a question about our practices just ask!
By joining our CSA Farm Share, you are sharing in our weekly harvest. This is different then shopping at a health food store or even the Farmers Markets. Your weekly Share is comprised of fresh seasonal produce off of our Farm. A Farm Share is a wonderful opportunity to be reacquainted with the seasonality of food. By offering CSA Farm Shares, we aim to cultivate a healthy community with food as the foundation. Not only will you get to know us as your Farmers, we get to know you, our community.
What to expect in our CSA Farm Share?
We offer three CSA options: a Full Share, Half Share, and a Greens Share.
