Welcome to the 2024 CSA!

A short introduction and welcome to the 2024 CSA. 

The Simon Family welcomes you and presents some of the vegetables growing in the greenhouse.

Pressing on!  

Low Tunnels Achieved!

We have been looking for affordable technologies to get more food area through the winter and the adverse conditions.  We found it!    We had to modify the design for us and our needs.  But we did it!  Here it is..  Please let us know what you think in the comments and if you like it leave us a thumbs up.

Next is the Four Row Covers.  See you along the way!

Good compost is dark with minerals -such as carbonitite we source from a mineral deposit in Canada, and carbon-rich from woodchips, grass clippings, spent flowers, and herbal preparations that bring the fullness of our valley farm into every leaf and fruit we harvest as medicine for you.

The medicine we offer in our garden share does not stop with food on your fork.  Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is in itself another level of medicinal benefit for you.  Many people feel a detachment from their food when they don’t see the place it comes from, learn about the process that creates it, interact with the people who grew it.  From years of experience, we’ve found many people feel this detachment.  Many of our friends have found a totally new level of nourishment from meeting their farmers, seeing the valley farm, feeling supported in their search for health by meeting like-minded friends at pickups, and at our potlucks we host at the farm.  Greater nourishment comes with a CSA model, because immersion is a powerful state.

Our Vegetable CSA runs 20 weeks, from late May to early October.  We aim for 15 lbs vegetables per week average.  This is what most people feel they can get through in a week, with extra for canning and freezing.  For those who have felt they could take more, or need less, we have found several ways to customize your share to Goldilocks perfection:

Adopt-a-Veggie Table is where we add elements only a few sharers like (radish, water cress, eggplant, for instance).  We also have extra tomatoes or bruised tomatoes many people take home for canning or slicing that night for dinner.

The Herb Garden is right outside the pick up building, and has every herb we can pack into it for healing and mouth-pleasing teas, another level of flavorful food, salad additions, edible flowers.  One of the Simon’s is always there at pickup to assist in which herb is which and making sure you get the most from the herb garden.

Canning-Plantings such as extra beans, and paste to tomatoes are available for sharers with particularly ambitious canning goals.  We show you the abundant patch, and usually help with filling your basket(s).  We have loads of basil we plant out in the gardens for pesto lovers.

The price, at $600, breaks down to roughly $30 per week on vegetables, and herbs.

Sharers also receive 10% discount on beef purchased at the farm from us at pickup.

While you’re picking up vegetables and meat, you can feel a wash of beauty from our flower shares.  Many of our customers get a flowers share in addition to their garden share rather than purchasing flowers off and on.  We’ve found the benefit for us is worth reducing the price for 20 weeks of flowers from $300 to just $190.  See this page to learn what you will enjoy in a flower share.
