Community Supported Agriculture
The CSA supports our core belief that community is intergral to the life of our farm.
2021 Winter CSA IS SOLD OUT
THE 2021 WINTER CSA
January 7th thru April 29th.
Our CSA offers you an opportunity to be part of our grassroots food community and share in the year's bounty with us. You buy a share of the crops, upfront, and we grow the crops and get them to you clean and fresh throughout the season.
You receive local and healthful food, grown without pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or genetically modified seeds.
We offer winter shares for18 weeks, with boxes being distributed every other week. The Winter CSA, starts in January and ends in late April. We distribute shares every other week, which gives you 9 winter shares. Food amount is estimated to feed 2-4 humans who eat some vegetables with each meal they cook, for 2 weeks at a time.
Winter weather limits the kind of vegetable diversity we can January through April. We rely on winter staples like potatoes, winter squash, leeks, and carrots, but we also love and crave fresh greens like tender salad, spinach, kale, chard, and Asian greens. We strive to include a solid amount of fresh greens in every share. We like to eat a diversity of seasonal vegetables in the winter, and we want to share that same diversity with you. We have a few new treats for our Winter CSA members this year, which includes apples, which we are pretty excited about.
This year we are offering home delivery as well as on farm pick up to help limit Covid exposure for those to need extra consideration. The main event happens at our favorite local intentional community, where the pick-up site is located south-town Corvallis. The location is outside but undercover. We will talk about the food, share recipes, and chat about life. And we will sanitize our hands and give each other space while doing so! We also feel strongly about limiting food waste and thus will have some options for making sure you are happy with the food you are taking home.

Winter weather limits the kind of vegetable diversity we can grow. We rely on winter staples like potatoes, winter squash, leeks, and carrots, but we also love and crave fresh greens like tender salad, spinach, kale , and chard. We strive to include lots of greens in every box. We like to eat a diversity of seasonal vegetables in the winter, and we want to share that same diversity with you.
In the past, we have allowed and encouraged our CSA members to swap items received in their shares if they are undesirable for whatever reason.
Food waste is one of our biggest pet peeves!
In lieu of the Coronavirus, we are adjusting our swapping system to minimize vegetable handling. We are still exploring systems that will allow members some choice while keeping our labor down and shares affordable.
Know that that whatever system we settle on, the health of our community and reducing food waste is important to us!
