Join us for our 2024 CSA (Customer/Consumer Supported Agriculture) Season!
We are once again offering a“buyer’s choice” method CSA. Customers will purchase a farm CSA card in advance for an amount they choose. That amount will then be available as a farm credit for you to spend throughout the year. You can use your farm credit anytime during the season in any increment you like. This gives you the most choice and flexibility in your CSA while still supporting a local family farm and responsible small-scale agriculture. You can skip weeks at your convenience and you have the freedom to purchase what you like instead of a pre-packaged box. For those who like the idea of a traditional CSA box, we will have the option to purchase a "farmer's choice" box during peak season full of surprises and delicious peak season produce.
A weekly electronic order form will be sent with the items we have available. You can choose what you would like and pick it up at the farm, or have it delivered within the greater Columbus area. A $5 delivery fee will be added to orders under $12. Deliveries are currently planned for Thursday afternoon/evening but are subject to change. We guarantee at least 40 weeks of products between 1/1/24 and 12/31/24. We anticipate that prices will largely remain the same as last season unless something truly unexpected and beyond our control happens.
Last year we debuted a roadside stand at the farm and we plan to continue and expand it this season. CSA members can use their prepaid CSA credit to purchase items at the stand. CSA members also receive a 10 percent discount on all items purchased at the roadside stand.
There is some inherent risk with a CSA because we cannot control growing conditions and as a buyer, you assume that risk. However, we do diversify and provide some items from other local farmers. We have offered CSA’s since 2009 and have always been able to provide a large selection of quality products. Also, all CSA card money must be used by the end of this season which will be December 31st. The credit cannot be carried over into the next year. All sales are final and there are no refunds.
The minimum purchase amount is $200. You can purchase additional amounts in $100 increments. Sales are limited and will continue until we sell out. If you use up your credit during the season you can add more to your card.
A list of what we plan to produce this year can be found below. Items grown or produced on our farm are beyond organic and grown using no-till regenerative methods. We do supplement from local farms with extra items such as apples, melons, and sweet corn to bring you a greater selection of quality local produce. These may or may not be organic and we will always let you know which items are brought in.
CSA Purchase Options - Memberships are sold until we reach our predetermined limit for the season. After that point individuals can still purchase produce weekly when it is available, but they will not receive any of the CSA perks. It pays to join early!
