3 locations for pick up May 1 - Oct 26
CSA’s have been around since the 80’s; operated by local farmers. CSA’s create a closer and more visible relationship between those growing food and those eating it. Customers take a more active role in the process of growing their meals by “investing” in the season — pre-paying for a share of what happens in the field. This reciprocal relationship allows the community to assist with early season costs, like buying seeds, and then in turn the farmer provides an abundance from the field during the growing season.
This year, the Organic Farm School is rolling out a “Flex CSA” model. Flex CSA provides eaters with more choice than the traditional model – choice in the time and location of pick-up as well as choice in the kind and amount of produce. Just as you would shop at the farmers market, you can use your membership card on the vegies you need and want. This model accommodates for the changes in your schedule and appetite throughout the season which will also cut down on food waste.
Consider our CSA membership like a “gift card” that you use until it’s spent - one that benefits the training of new farmers as much as it improves the variety and flavor of your meals.

Add pastured poultry!
In July (exact date to be posted soon) we'll be processing broiler chickens for same-day pick-up at the farm. Our birds spend their days roaming on fresh pasture, are fed organic grain, and basically live like kings and queens!
