our csa program
Becoming a CSA member means a weekly supply of freshly picked produce straight from our farm! Each week's share varies throughout the season based on ripeness and flavor. Periodically, we may include special items such as microgreens or edible flowers, a farm tote bag, or our own jarred goods like hot sauce and honey.

SAMPLE CSA SHARES:
New members frequently ask what they can expect to find in their shares. Below are sample shares taken from our 2017 membership records. What’s included varies throughout the season, though every share will include at least one salad green and one sautéing or braising green. You’ll notice that in spring, shares tend to trend towards cool weather leaves like salad mixes, kale and herbs (and therefore tend to be lighter in weight/value), while in midsummer nightshades and cucurbits rule, and fall sees more root veggies. We aim to exceed the market value of your share each week, and if our harvest ends up being a bit light in the beginning of the year, you can rest assured that we will make up for it with a greater bounty in summer! Indeed, by the year's end the value of your CSA membership exceeds the price you've paid and will include a few exclusive goodies you won't find on our market table!
Our shares are extremely seasonal, ensuring that we’re offering a balanced diet as mother nature intended it! We recommend them for one person who cooks vegetarian meals at home most nights, two people who cook omnivorous meals 3-4 nights a week, or to supplement the shopping needs of a larger residence.
SPRING/EARLY SUMMER VEGGIE SHARE:
Sweet lettuce mix, chives, hakurei turnips, escarole, french breakfast radishes, mint, lacinato kale, sunflower shoots
MID/LATE SUMMER VEGGIE SHARE:
A quart of heirloom tomatoes, basil, arugula, leeks, shishito peppers, garlic, cucumbers, onions, fairytale eggplant
LATE SEASON VEGGIE SHARE:
Mustard greens mix, carrots, jalapeños, ground cherries, onions, bok choy, rainbow chard, sweet bell peppers

Flower shares will include one bouquet per week of seasonal wildflowers grown right on the roof! Break your bouquets up into smaller arrangements for multiple rooms, or select out a few individual blooms to place in bud vases on your bathroom counter, bedside table, etc. Nothing perks up a room like fresh flowers!
