2020 CSA Quick Facts: 

How long is your CSA season?
Our main season CSA will be 24 weeks long, beginning in May and ending in October.  This means you will 
receive a box of produce each week for a total of 24 boxes throughout the season.  We also offer an extended season share, with deliveries from the end of November into December.  Current CSA members have the first chance to sign up for our fall season.

Are there different share sizes?

All CSA shares are the same size.  We do offer add ons for people who would like a larger quantity of something in their box or for our value-added products (i.e. salsa, jam, etc).  

 

When are CSA boxes delivered and where may I pick up my box if I am not getting home delivery?
Home deliveries are made on Tuesday afternoon/evening.  If you are not having your box delivered to your home, your box will be available to pick up at the farm on Tuesday afternoon/evening.  Actual pickup/delivery times will be determined closer to the season, but they will generally be between 3 and 7pm.  

Do you grow everything in the CSA boxes?
Yes!

Is the produce organic?
Yes and no, we are not a USDA certified organic farm but w
e do grow all our produce using 100% natural, organic methods and minimal amounts of fossil fuels.  We do not use GMOs, toxic persistent pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers.  As stewards of the land and farm we use biological and mechanical practices that replenish, promote and conserve soil health, ecological balance, and biodiversity.

 

Do you grow/offer fruit?
Organic fruit is a difficult beast to master in Ohio’s climate and, at this time, all of our efforts go towards growing high quality vegetables.
  If we have excess fruit from our personal fruit trees or berry bushes we will offer them as add ons to your weekly boxes. 

How much produce is in each CSA box?
There are 8-12 items in each box. The boxes are just under a bushel, which is approximately 1 to 2 paper grocery bags.

How much does the CSA cost?
A box delivered to your home is $30 per week. (Click here for more info)

A box picked up at the farm is $25 per week.

How do I pay?

We offer several convenient ways to pay: online with your debit/credit card or through the mail by check (preferred).  You can pay all at once at time of sign up or choose to pay in installments with an initial deposit upon sign up and the remainder due upon your first delivery/pickup.

Is there a weekly CSA newsletter?
Yes, during the CSA season we will update our blog every week with farm news, recipe ideas and more.
