What is CSA?
A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for the you to get to know your local farmer and to receive a weekly basket of produce. By making a financial commitment to a farm, you become a member or subscriber of the CSA, actually owning a share of the farm's proceeds. For more information on CSAs, click here.
We start the CSA season in May and continue through September for a 20 week duration.
The cost of a CSA share is $400 for the whole season.
We usually deliver to the Greenville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on State Park Road in Greenville on Sundays, but we can work out delivery options if you decide to participate. You are also welcome to come to the farm to pick up your box of produce.
We send out a weekly newsletter...usually around Thursday to give a heads up on what's going on here on the farm, as well as to give you an idea of what to expect in your delivery.
We try to include a fruit in most deliveries, and these include strawberries, blueberries, mulberries, watermelons, cantaloupe, and Asian pears. There is a possibility we will be able to deliver grapes and pomegranites too, but this will be their first year producing, so we're not sure what kind of harvest we'll get.
We also include herbs like parsley, garlic, cilantro, dill, rosemary and basil in each delivery. Many times we will include recipes.
All of our food is grown with the utmost care and pride.
We hope you will join us. If you would like references, we'd be happy to supply them.
In addition to the CSA, we sell produce at small market venues on Sundays and Wednesdays. If you are interested, please contact us for more information.
Our eggs are multicolor - brown, blue and green due to the breeds of chickens that we choose. Best eggs you've ever tasted. They have orange yolks that stand up tall in the pan.
Because our growing system is sustainable and is dependent on the amount of land we have, we can only keep a set number of chickens. Therefore, our eggs are limited. They are available on a first come, first served basis.
When eggs are available, they are $4.00 per dozen.
Honey is available in the fall.
Lamb is available in the fall. Please check back with us in 2009.
We sell Grade B goat milk for animal consumption only. We are not a Grade A dairy, and do not sell our milk for human consumption.
