2021 CSA

A lot of work goes into farming before anything comes out of the field. Investing in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) allows our farm the ability to order materials, improve infrastructure, and coordinate for the season ahead.

The CSA model is a crucial element in keeping small, organic farmers in the business. A mutaully beneficial model, CSAs allow you guaranteed access to the freshest produce at a discounted rate.

You can now purchase your share through our web store! Please, be sure to fill out the CSA Member Form in tandem with fulfilling your order through our store. Carefully read through this page and then hop on over to the shop, complete payment, and the CSA google-doc form.

What to expect

 

At pick-up:

Our CSA is designed to maximize your choices in produce throughout the season.

You will receive a pre-loaded Folks Farm Gift Card valid until November 6th and you'll be able to add extra to your balance if you wish.

Generally, we recommend an amount to spend each week for both your benefit and our ease of harvest/stocking, however, you will be able to use as much of your balance on any given day as you need. You're planning to can tomatoes in July? Awesome! Spend extra on a ton tomatoes!

Expect shares to be lighter in the spring, grow more bountiful as the season progresses, and come down again in the fall--eating with the seasons is an experience.

Most weeks will be fully customizable, however circumstances can change, in which case we will let you know if your share will be pre-packed. For example, a blizzard.

We require you to choose a location for pick-up so that we can be prepared and consistent. With a minimum of 24 hour notice we can accommodate a switch to a different day.

Why Choose a Folks Farm CSA?

Local Food comes from Local Seed.

Here at Folks Farm we practice bioregional adaptation. By using selection processes throughout the growing cycle we select plants better suited to our unique local growing conditions. We then bring these selected plants to full maturity and harvest their seeds. 

Plants bred for vigor more effectively mine nutrients from the soil, directly translating in higher nutrient density in the food you eat. In combination with our regenerative growing practices you can be assured you receive the highest quality produce possible. 

Your support of seed saving and regenerative farming builds resilience in your body, your community, and helps heal our world.
