Community Supported Agriculture programs allow residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally. This program will allow members or subscribers to become more involved in our farming operation by purchasing shares at the onset of the growing season. In return members receive fresh homegrown produce straight from our fields to your table from mid-June through the end of October, as well as exciting opportunities to visit the farm on special Harvest Event days.
Family Share ($775) is a full bushel box of fresh picked homegrown produce once a week for 18 weeks and will feed 5-6 people. It includes access to all Harvest Events and fantastic bonus items throughout the season! Pay in full for a Family Share before March 31st to receive a Pahl’s Market gift card.
Standard Share ($450) is a half bushel box of fresh picked homegrown produce once a week for 18 weeks and will feed 3-4 people.

Each box will contain fruits and/or vegetables at peak harvest season for that week. Each share also comes with delicious Great Harvest Bread Company breads and quality Von Hanson meats once a month!

We will be communicating with all CSA members weekly via email to let them know what to expect in their share boxes, how the crops are doing and what kind of successes and challenges the past week presented. We will post blogs, You Tube videos and Facebook updates with vegetable preparation techniques and fun new recipes to try. We will provide a forum for our members to share ideas and provide us with feedback on their share boxes and experiences. If you receive something in your share box you normally wouldn’t purchase you will have access to ideas on how to enjoy the new treat. Don’t be afraid to try new vegetables!
