Is Our CSA Right for Your Family?
You want wholesome, old-fashioned foods including heirloom varieties and heritage breeds, raised without chemicals, the way nature intended; and you want to ensure that these things are available for generations to come. You value farming families and believe that they should be fairly compensated for providing truly nourishing foods while faithfully stewarding the land. You want to be part of a community of people who uphold these values.
Join our CSA
We are busily preparing our barn for new arrivals and finalizing our crop calendar, preparing seed orders, reserving bees and livestock, and trying out our new-to-us video camera.
Seeds: $5000 Since we purchase organic heirloom seed, and since quantities are often limited, the prices are a fair bit higher than those you can buy at a local garden center. We have some pretty neat varieties on offer, and will begin to implement some companion planting this year as well.
Heritage livestock such as Pigs, Goats, Sheep and Geese cost, on average, 2-3 times what no-name/”production” breeds cost.
This is just a small sampling. None of these expenses take into account the infrastructure, equipment, supplies, and services we need. And it doesn’t include our labour, which will occupy our family full-time, year-round.
Our 2014 Shares are as follows:
Vegetable – whole and half
Meat – Pork and Beef, half and whole. Chicken and Goose, whole
Egg – Chicken – 1 doz/wk.
We have posted our TERMS and APPLICATION. Please read everything carefully. Both the Terms and the Application need to be signed and returned with payment – either by postal mail or right to the farm. If we aren’t at the farm when you arrive to drop your paperwork, there is a locked black mailbox that you can safely drop your envelope in.
