Advantages of Joining a Minnesota CSA with Pahls:
CSA’s have become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Pahl Farms offers a traditional CSA where we sell a certain number of shares to the public in advance of harvest season. Interested consumers purchase a share and in return receive a box of seasonal produce each week throughout the harvest season.
Customers get to eat ultra-fresh food with all the flavor and vitamin benefits. Customers also get exposure to new vegetables and new ways of cooking. Pahl Farm CSA members develop a relationship with the farmer who grows their food and learns more about how their food is grown. In addition, our CSA members also have the opportunity to visit the farm and share in harvest events. Through our Harvest Events members receive additional bountiful harvest items to freeze or can and enjoy throughout the winter months. You will be amazed at the vegetables your children will try when it comes from “their” farm!
*All shares include access to all Harvest Events, $20 gift cards to Von Hanson’s & Great Harvest, eggs from Brand Farms, and fantastic bonus items throughout the season!
- Family Farm Share ($799) is a full bushel box of fresh picked homegrown produce once a week for 16 weeks and will feed 5-6 people.
- Standard Farm Share ($480) is a 5/9 bushel box of fresh picked homegrown produce once a week for 16 weeks and will feed 3-4 people.
- Teaser Farm Share ($375) is a 1/3 bushel box of fresh picked homegrown produce once a week for 16 weeks and will feed 2-3 people.
Pahl Farms CSA offers a unique addition to our program by partnering with Von Hanson’s Meats. Members will receive a $20 Von Hanson’s gift card in their first share box. Through this partnership we are able to provide over 20 additional Von Hanson’s pick up locations throughout the Twin Cities.
That’s not all! We have also partnered with Great Harvest Bread Company locations throughout the Twin Cities to offer additional convenient pick up sites. Pahl Farms CSA members will receive a $20 Great Harvest Bread gift certificate in their first share box.
What!? There’s more? Yes, there is! Pahl Farms CSA members will receive a dozen eggs from Brand Farms happy and healthy free range chickens! Partnering with Brand Farms also allows us to add another Harvest Event – an apple pick!
