2023 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 may also offer an extended season share, from the end of November into December. Current CSA members have the first chance to sign up for our fall season. Current CSA members also have the first chance to sign up for next years CSA.
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 and where do I pick up my box?
Your box will be available to pick up at the farm store (3549 Creek Road, 45241) on Tuesday afternoon/evening every Tuesday during the season. Actual pick up time will be determined closer to the season, but they will generally be between 4 and 6pm.
Do you offer delivery?
At this time we are not offering delivery. As the farm grows we have to dedicate more time in the fields in order to produce the highest quality food for our customers. Any time off the farm takes away from the plants. Also, we enjoy having our CSA members come to the farm every week so they can see the farm transform throughout the season.
Do you grow everything in the CSA boxes?
Is the produce organic?
Yes and no, we are not a USDA certified organic farm but we 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?
The CSA cost $650 for the full 24 week season (May thru October).
What if one share is too big/expensive for me?
If you think that a farm share will be simply too much food for you or your small family but you still want to find a way to join a CSA and support your local farmers, consider splitting a share with a friend, family member, or neighbor. You can split each box every week or alternate weeks picking up the share. We encourage you to provide at least one email address for each household, so everyone receives my weekly reminder email.
How do I pay?
We offer several convenient ways to pay: online with your debit/credit card (3.49% + $.49 online processing fee included) 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 send out weekly newsletters to our members letting them know what to expect in their boxes and what extras will be available in the farm store.
