CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a local food based program that is designed to create a direct from farmer to consumer relationship. Our members join the CSA in the spring and receive fresh, organic produce from our farm for 20 weeks or more of the growing season. Additionally, members can join the extended Winter Share program and eat fresh veggies into December!
You’re not limited to veggies too! We partner up with some great friends and farmers to supply you with top-quality meats, eggs, cheeses, and dairy. All of these products are raised by conscientious farmers, who pasture their livestock on lush grass and hay. The pork and poultry are supplemented with GMO free grains and minerals and processed right here in the tri-county area.
Looking for more? It’s our ultimate goal to make our farm your one-stop local shop. Along with meats, dairy, and eggs – we also have available for purchase: fresh-baked bread and pastries from Allegro Hearth Bakery, honey from Kopar Honey Farm, handmade salves, lotions and cosmetics from Una Biologicals, fresh roasted fair-trade organic coffee, raw and pasteurized cows-milk cheeses from Conneauttee Creamery (from grass-fed cows), organic blueberries from Hunter Farms (the best around!), homemade kombucha, Soda pop from Natrona Bottling Co., and much more!
You receive the abundance and bounty of the farm, but also take the risk with us that some crops may fail. Growing good food is hard work! We’re happy to be doing it, and sure do appreciate the supportive community of neighbors, friends and foodies who understand that we’re working in a risky business that is dependent upon the whim of mother nature, our cooperation and savvy wits. We’re still young farmers and are working toward getting a few years of experience under our belts (maybe another 30 years) before we can call ourselves “seasoned” farmers.

Thanks for jumping on our local food train and supporting the next generation of folks who love to grow good, nutrient dense food for our community!
