CSA

WHAT IS A CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a community based around its farmers and consumers. Consumers, also known as members or share-holders, join by purchasing a share at the beginning of the season. This membership helps cover the farm's cost for the season and in return, they receive weekly fresh picked produce shares. Each week the box will vary in produce, depending on what's available in the fields. Each member should be aware that with farming and nature in general, there's often unpredictability.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Our 2017 shares run for 21 weeks from late-May until mid-October. Shares come in two sizes, half shares and full shares. Half shares are typically enough for a family of 2 and cost $325. Full shares are typically enough for a family of 4 and cost $525.

Here's a short list of what you'll be seeing during your shares:

Late-May to June: turnips, snap peas, greens (kale, mustard, chard), lettuce, spinach, arugula, radishes, scapes, herbs, beets
July to August: summer squash, cucumbers, beans, herbs, edamame, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes
Sept to Oct: eggplants, turnips, sweet potatoes, broccoli, carrots, radish, onions, greens, lettuce, beans, winter squash

WEEKLY NEWSLETTERS
Each week, make sure to check your e-mails for newsletters. These include a list of what's in your share that week, news about the farm, tips on how to keep your produce fresher and longer, and recipes.

WHY BLUE MEADOW FARMS?
We believe our customers deserve the best quality produce along with great customer service. We make it a point to only grow non-GMO seeds that are organic, heirloom, or both. We also follow organic practices to ensure nothing but the best tasting produce. 
Our goal with each CSA member is to get to know them and provide them with fresh, local produce. Last year, each CSA member received their weekly boxes along with an e-mailed newsletter. In each weekly newsletter was a description of what's in the box for the week, storage tips for the produce, recipes, and information about what's current at the farm. Returning members also receive a special discount for coming back each year. We hope to continue to grow each year, and we hope you can join us for our journey too!
