Update on June, 18th 2020:
We have decided that we will not be adding any more additional CSA members this season beyond our current 80 members. We are so grateful that there has been so much interest and support around our CSA program.
If you signed up on our waitlist and did not get into our CSA Program this year, the good new is that our Farm Stand is open seven days a week, year round with our eggs and produce (more details on our home page). You do not have to be a CSA member to shop at our Farm Stand!
Keep an eye out for our 2021 CSA registration to open up this coming October. To receive our newsletters and 2021 CSA sign up details, enter your email below and click Submit to sign up for our updates.
Thank you from your Farmers,
Ben and Carolyn
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct, food-share partnership between you and the farmer. The CSA share program gives our customers the option to buy our produce at a wholesale price. This model brings farmers income at an important time of the year when we are ordering seeds, building infrastructure, and improving our tools and production practices.
A share consists of a box of freshly harvested vegetables and culinary herbs every week for 22 weeks running from late May through mid October of 2020. The variety in the share changes weekly, as different crops come into and out of season throughout the year. We grow over 60 different crops and varieties, carefully chosen for taste, nutrition, and quality. We grow your food following organic practices and methods that improve soil health and biodiversity. All of it is grown right here at our farm in NW Fort Collins!
NEW for 2020: All CSA members are welcome to attend any of our classes and workshops held seasonally at the farm. No ticket purchase necessary for our CSA members, this is complimentary as we value you being here with us at the farm! The workshop schedule can be viewed under the Workshops & Events tab. We will be holding a CSA member appreciation party and potluck on September 20th, 2020.
The share is $500 for the 2020 season, or about $22/week (a $25 – $30 retail value).
A non-refundable $50 deposit is requested to hold your space. Payment in full is required by May 1st, 2020. IMPORTANT: Please do not send us a deposit until we notify you that we have a share open and you are off the waitlist. Thank you!
We accept SNAP/EBT benefits and can match 50% of the total share cost for SNAP recipients through the Double Up Food Bucks Program. This brings the share price for SNAP members to $250, which can be paid with EBT benefits on a monthly basis.
