What is a CSA ?
CSA- (Community Supported Agriculture). Members pay for shares before the season starts. This helps us buy our seeds and pay for other farm expenses without needing to take out loans. You will share in the bounty and the risk. You receive a box of vegetables every week for 20 weeks depending on weather from June-October. Pickup is on Wednesday’s at the farm from 5-7pm and Mondays in Altoona and Lake Halli, WI from 5-7pm.
CSA is a great way to get to know the farmer, know where your produce comes from and how it's grown. It's a relationship of mutual support and commitment between our farm and community members. This arrangement gives us a direct connection to and relationship with you.
About Our CSA -
We use sustainable farming practices. We do NOT use any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides that would harm our family or customers . Our vegetables have not been shipped or picked before they are ready, so you get the full nutritional values out of our produce. You also save time! Who has time to garden ? The space or know how to garden ? It's great to have our farm to count on for this reason. Our farm is a way of life and sharing vegetables with friends, family and the local community is what brings us happiness.
