We have chickens, cattle and pigs and grow vegetables on one acre of land with another five acres in cover crop. Each year we grow a variety of vegetables for use on the farm and for sale at the farmers market. All of our crops are grown without the use of chemicals and in accordance with the seasons, the climate and the land.
Our goal is to produce beautiful, delicious crops which are healthy for our customers, employees, soil and surrounding habitat. We rotate our growing areas and use cover crops to build soil fertility. This helps manage weed, pest, and disease pressure naturally. We fertilize with organically approved soil amendments and fertility from our own animals.
The cows feast on fresh pasture during the summer and fermented hay in the winter. We practice rotational grazing, which improves pasture health through distribution of nutrients and prevents overgrazing. Grazing this way sequesters carbon, which improves soil health and the quality of our pastures. The cows live happy lives and it makes a difference— our pasture-raised beef is full of complex flavors and healthy fats.
Our pigs are raised in the woods, where they forage on roots, berries, nuts, greens and grubs. They help to remove invasive plants and thin the understory, laying the groundwork for converting some of our woodlot into silvopasture (a mix of trees and pasture). Our pigs eat certified non-gmo grain by local farms transitioning to organic certification. a healthy helping of farm vegetable scraps and LOTS of acorns.
The chickens are raised on pasture, where they eat bugs, grasses and other foliage. We have a large variety of heritage layer breeds, known for their forage capacity, cold-hardiness, and multi-colored eggs. Our chickens eat certified non-gmo grain by local farms transitioning to organic certification as well as farm vegetable scraps.
We cultivate a diverse variety of seasonal gourmet mushrooms May - November. Our mushrooms are grown on sawdust supplemented with organic grain, and harvested daily for peak freshness. Our main varieties are oysters and shiitake, with more exotic varieties such as lion’s mane, king oyster and pioppino making an appearance when the time is right.
When you join our CSA, each week you will receive a curated selection of fresh produce coming from our field. We also have mushroom and egg add-on shares available, with a cut-flower CSA add-on coming soon. If you would like to purchase additional items, you can also purchase from our online farm stand or farmers market. CSA customers get 10% off all purchases in our online farm stand and farmers market.
Our season runs for 24 weeks from May 28th - November 5.
What do you get?
Each week, you will get a balance of salad greens, roots, a bunch of herbs, and other seasonal produce such as tomatoes and cucumbers in the summer, and winter squash and cauliflower in the fall. The boxes are comprised of the best of what we have coming out of the field, and you will receive an email at the beginning of the week with what will likely be in the box to help you meal plan.
Below are some of the crops we grow for the CSA:
Salad greens, head lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, radicchio, kale, spinach, herbs, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, scallions, turnips, radishes, summer squash and winter squash.
The share boxes have an average value at least 15% off the total retail price of the items. We offer two size options.
Small Share: $15/week, 24 weeks. For individuals and couples who eat a moderate amount of vegetables, we recommend a small share. Our small box averages about 5 items.
Large share: $25/week, 24 weeks. For families, or individuals/couples who eat a lot of vegetables. For households that cook regularly and eat a plant-centric diet, we recommend two large shares. Our large box averages about eight items.
