What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is part of a growing social movement that encourages urban & rural citizens to share responsibility for the land where their food is grown as well as how their food is produced. In simplest terms,

CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers and consumers.

Members or “shareholders” pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, members receive a portion of the farm’s produce each week throughout the growing season.

Week 10 CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)


 

And our NEW "Grab & Go Bags!"

See you at the Market!


We have been baling STRAW!

You ask, what can I do with straw?!  Oh boy, think of that fall 'hayride', those plants who need a layer of cushioning the winter, and the homes that need some insulation near the foundations, and alas,one of the most important- animals! Gracious, straw has MANY uses, from thatch, weaving, scarecrows, crafts, bedding, packaging, paper making, horse collars, rope, decoration, erosion control, construction, and more....


If your animals have bedding needs for winter, NOW is the time to let us help! Our barns are filling up and we'd love to help you. CALL Wesley if you'd like to purchase straw.
These bales photos are BIG (2 x 3 x 7 feet). By the time we finish, the expected total is nearing 500 bales ready for market.
