CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In a CSA, farmers grow food for a group of consumers who pay an annual fee to purchase their share of the harvest.
It’s a powerful thing to have a connection & relationship with the land and the people that are growing your food. We pick the produce within 24 hours of when you get it – it’s hard to find anything more fresh.
We grow all of your food without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides and with a focus on the health of the soil. We farm with horses and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. We search out the most flavorful varieties of vegetables because we can focus on the taste of the produce rather than the size, shape and shelf life. We’re in this business to foster a diverse community of people interested in a healthy, tasty lifestyle.
Here is some of the produce you can expect from the Orchard Hill Farm CSA: Asparagus, Beans, Beets, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Cantaloupe, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celeriac, Chard, Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant, Garlic, Kale, Kohlrabi, Leeks, Mesclun Mix, Onions, Parsnips, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radishes, Raspberries, Rhubarb, Rutabaga, Spinach, Squash, Strawberries, Tomatoes, Watermelon, Zucchini, an assortment of herbs, and flowers
More about Garden Shares
There will be weekly pick-ups at the farm on Wednesdays from 11am – 6pm. We will provide freshly picked organically grown produce throughout the growing season. The season runs for 22 weeks beginning in the middle of May and running until early October. The start day varies depending upon the weather.
SHARE – One share is geared to provide produce for two adults who eat at home, or a family with small children. $800
HALF SHARE – Pick up every other week during the season. $450
WORKING SHARE – A work-share member helps at the farm, primarily on harvest days, in exchange for a $50 discount. Usually, working sharers come twice a season for 2½ hours each time. Children are more than welcome to come with their parents!
We phone or email members in the spring prior to the first pick-up or you can check our blog.
