Community Supported Agriculture is a great way to support your local farmers while eating fresh, Certified Organic vegetables grown right here in the Treasure Valley. Participating in our CSA lets you try new vegetables, experiment with new recipes, and sync your eating with the seasons. It also decreases your carbon footprint, increases food security, and supports farmers who are committed to the health of the land and their community.
How does it work? CSA members purchase "shares," which guarantee them a share of fresh Certified Organic vegetables every week during the CSA season. Members sign up and pay for their shares in the winter and spring months. The early-season income helps farmers purchase seeds, hire employees, make repairs, and finance new infrastructure to get the farm season going.
You can purchase a weekly share, which will be picked up every week, or a bi-weekly share to be picked up every other week. This year the CSA will be 20 weeks long beginning the first week of June and lasting into October. Each week (or every other for a biweekly share)you will pick up your pre-packed share of Certified Organic veggies at one of our 2 pickup locations in the Boise area.
Your share will directly reflect what is growing on the farm. You can generally expect lots of tender greens in the spring; tomatoes, peppers, carrots and summer squash in the summer; and winter squash, onions, garlic and storage vegetables in the fall. We will provide a diverse mix of vegetables and make sure to include some sort of leafy green in your share every week. We will also give you some exciting new vegetables to try, but we promise not to overload you with exotic vegetables you have never heard of.
