2018 CSA Options
If you are interested in the 2018 CSA growing season, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our lives have had a series of interruptions this winter and we are not quite clear on all the CSA particulars.
How It Works
Each Friday morning we fill our walk-in cooler with the week's offerings. The blackboard on the walk-in has a list of everything that was harvested for that week. There is a place on the blackboard to mark your name to show that you have come. For the Early Salad Season, everything is portioned out and you will just need to grab your bags. Come summer, you will choose from the available vegetables and fill your basket. Any additional instructions will be on the walk-in door. It is a little Farmers Market inside the walk-in!
You may pick up any time after 1pm Friday-Monday evening. This year we are excited to have a new walk-in cooler dedicated to the CSA. If you forget or life gets crazy—just call or email for other arrangements. Everyone goes on vacation. If you can let us know, we can make sure your food gets to the Food Shelf in Pepin. Communication is the key to making this whole thing work.
How We Grow
We have been offering vegetables CSA style since 1992, and we’ve been on this farm since 1995. Growing vegetables has been our life work. Pre-internet and pre-internship, we had to just forge our way into farming with books and periodicals. We do not irrigate except in our tunnels and even there we try to used collected rain water instead of ground water. We build soil with cover crops, grazing and compost. This has allowed us to weather many drought times. We do not buy in outside fertility in the form of quick release organic fertilizer. We believe that the cycle of fertility brought about by building soil is the cycle we want to be a part of. This is farming for us. We grow for flavor, we harvest for quality and we cool produce in the field for the longest possible shelf life.
A down payment of any amount automatically reserves your place. Pay in full or in installments. New to CSA? Let's talk. Finding this after the start of our season? Email us and we'll work something out.
