CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) encourages you to get to know your farmer and know where your food is coming from. Our members experience locally grown produce, eggs and meat in a new way and learn to eat with the seasons. Customers become members of the farm by buying shares before the season begins. In turn, the farm provides shareholders every week during the season with a variety of farm goods to enjoy. Shareholders support a local family farm, the local community and receive local produce each week. Shareholders are also exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking. After trying new veggies shareholders often find that they really enjoy vegetables that they would have never purchased or tried before. We have CSA shares available year round.
Newsletters are included weekly and there is a great selection of recipes on our blog with ideas of how to cook your fresh produce. The web is also a great resource! Some of the cookbooks I have found helpful are "The Practical Produce Cookbook" by Ray and Elise Hoover, and also "Simply in Season" by Mary Beth Lind and Cathleen Hockman-Wert.
TRADITIONAL CSA BOXES
Our traditional style CSA boxes are available year round. They include a presorted box with a variety of veggies and fruit for you and your family to enjoy each week. Our traditional CSA boxes encourage you to enjoy Michigan’s best variety of produce when it is in season and incorporates a wide variety of veggies into your diet. You also are able to try out new produce and recipes that you may not have otherwise tried. The produce in these boxes are prepackaged for quick and convenient pick up. Several share types and sizes are available including fruit/veggies, beef/pork, chicken and eggs.
FARM STAND STYLE CSA
Our Farm Stand Style CSA members will purchase credit for the summer or winter season. Members come to the farm stand or farmers market locations to use up their credit during the season. Your credit can be used on anything we have available! There are many things to choose from including a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, honey and more! Farm stand style CSA members are able to choose their own share and have the flexibility to come when and where works for them.
