CSA Box Program
How it works
As a member, you receive a CSA box containing 8-12 different types of organic vegetables that vary throughout the season. In the spring, the name of the game is greens, herbs, radishes, peas, and other quick-growing and cold hardy vegetables. In the summer, boxes will also be loaded with warm-season favorites like tomatoes, peppers, melons, zucchini, and sweet corn. In the fall, you'll be rich in root and tuber crops, such as carrots, beets, potatoes, and sweet potatoes, along with winter squash, onions, garlic, broccoli, kale, and more. All told, you're likely to see 40+ different organic vegetables in your kitchen! You'll also receive a weekly CSA membership newsletter with the CSA box contents, updates from the farm, and a recipe that uses some of the veggies in that week's box.
Types of CSA shares
Summer share - SOLD OUT FOR 2017
The Summer season runs for 18 weeks, from June 5th through October 2.
Full share - $550. This is a good choice for a family of 3-4 which eats moderate amounts of vegetables, or an ambitious couple of veggie lovers.
Half share - $325. This size is well suited for 1-2 people, or a small family just looking to try out a CSA program for the first time but supplement with produce from the farmers' market or grocery store. The quantity of each item will be smaller than that found in the full share, and sometimes there will be fewer items.
The Fall Share runs for seven weeks, from the second week of October until Thanksgiving. The first few boxes will include freshly harvested crops like spinach, kale, and broccoli (tomatoes and peppers, too, in warm years!), along with hearty storage crops, such as winter squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, and cabbage.
Fall share - $225
In 2016, we had eight pickup locations in the Twin Cities and Cannon Falls areas. In the coming days, we will be renewing these agreements for 2017, plus likely adding 1-2 new locations in St. Paul.
