|Community Supported Agriculture|
In 2009, North Forty Farm expanded to include a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). CSAs create a direct relationship between consumers and farmers -- you know who is growing your food. How it works: you purchase a "share" of the farm's harvest during the off season so that the farmer has income during the spring planting season. When the harvest is ready, you receive a weekly allotment of fresh, locally-grown produce. The farmer spends more time tending crops and the land, and shareholders support sustainable, environmentally-responsible farming.
For 2013, the North Forty Farm CSA will run for approximately 18-20 weeks, mid-June through October. A Full Share (feeds 3-4 people) costs $525 and a Half Share (feeds 1-2 people) costs $280. There are 3 pickup days/times to choose from: Saturdays 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesdays 4 pm to 7 pm, or Thursdays 4 pm to 7 pm. The number of shares will be limited, so early reservations are suggested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to request a brochure and sign-up form, or click here for an application.
PLEASE NOTE: Tuesday and Thursday shares are SOLD OUT! Limited Saturday shares still available.
North Forty Farm grows a wide variety of vegetables, fruit and herbs. The selection of produce available each week will vary by the season and weather conditions, but an example is as follows:
Early Season: lettuces, beets, spinach, peas, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, arugula, parsley, swiss chard, radishes, turnips, onions, scallions, kohlrabi, and pak choi.
Mid Season: most of the above plus summer squash, sweet and hot peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, beans, eggplant, melons, watermelons, garlic, cilantro, dill, and basil.
Late Season: most of the above plus potatoes, winter squash, leeks, rutabagas, sugar pumpkins, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, and cauliflower.
North Forty Farm will also offer a Flower Share for $90, running for approximately 18-20 weeks, mid-June through October. Shareholders will receive a mixed bouquet of our long-lasting cut flowers (15-20 stems) or 3-4 stems of our gorgeous sunflowers.
