Are you Certified Organic?
No, we are not Certified Organic. We are planning to start the certifying process this season. You can read more about how we grow here.
What happens if I forget to pick up my share?

What happens if I am going to be out of town and unable to pick up my share?
If you will be out of town during a week of the CSA, please find a friend or coworker to enjoy your share while you're out of town. Or we can donate your share to the local food bank or a family.

Will I/we be able to visit the farm?
Yes! Our Local Members will pick up once a week at the farm during the CSA Season but all of our CSA Members are welcome to come and visit the farm by making an appointment. We feel it is healthy and important for the CSA Members to see the land where their food is being grown. We will host a Field Day at the farm in 2018, stay tuned.
