Our latest adventure: CSA!

We have officially decided to offer a small CSA for the 2012 growing season.  (small being the number of shares, not the amount of produce!) 

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA is a Partnership between a farm and members of the community providing a direct connection between the growing and eating of the food.

As a member of our CSA you help provide the farm a guaranteed source of funds to purchase seeds and supplies early in the season, and a guaranteed market for our produce. For you, it guarantees a supply of fresh, local, and in-season produce grown using organic methods.

As a member of our CSA, you will receive a weekly box of fresh veggies grown locally and seasonally.

By being a member of our first year CSA you are helping us to take an important step towards growing our farm. Each step we take in growing moves us closer to our goals of being a source of fresh, healthy food to our community and helping build a strong local food web from farm to fork.

Season Length, Pricing and Pick-up:

Our season will run the length of the Pullman Farmer's Market.  This year that is from May 9th through October 17th; a total of 24 weeks.

Our regular size box or share is perfect for 2-3 people who love to eat vegetables.

Price: $300
Due by March 1, 2012.

Pickup: Come to the Pullman Farmer's Market on Wednesdays between 4 and 6pm.  The Market is located in the Spot Shop parking lot, just up the street from Swilly's restaurant in Downtown Pullman.

If you are unable to pick up your box on any given week, you're out of town, your garden gave you a surprise bumper crop, whatever the reason, try to arrange to have a friend pick it up for you and give them a taste of fresh local produce.  If another arrangement cannot be made, we will be happy to donate it to the food bank.
