Life is so busy. With so much going on it is sometimes easier to just run through the drive thru, but it does not have to be this way!
Imagine sitting down to a family meal with a table of healthy vegetables and locally raised meats. Your fridge fully stocked with tasty food that your whole family loves.
We are here to make this dream a reality for you! Our CSA program is helping people enjoy good, healthy food every week.
What is CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.
The CSA model has many different forms, but I think it comes down these things:
- Support local farms & their local community
- Know where your food is coming from.
- Know who is growing your food.
- Know that what they are feeding their families is safe.
How to do you know if a CSA is right for you?
Ask yourself these questions:
Do you enjoy eating GOOD TASTING food? Hint: Those “baby carrots” that you get in the store do not taste like carrots. We grow carrots that are taste like candy. Juicy tomatoes that are full of flavor. Green beans that are so good, you will eat them all raw before you even get a chance to cook them. We raise variety of over 50 crops that will keep your family happy!
Do you want to improve your families health? What kind of food do you have in your fridge? Fill it up with good food that is full of good nutrients that will result in better health for you and your family.
Do you enjoy cooking? If you want to spend more time cooking meals for your family, CSA is for you. Members enjoy the fun of meal planning and the whole family enjoys trying out new recipes.
Do you want to know where your food is coming from? We have been seeing a lot of recalls lately. With the CSA you will know where your food is coming from and you won’t need to worry if it is safe.
Do you like to support your local economy? When you support our farm you support our family and our team’s families. You keep your money in our community.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have a CSA that is just right for you!
2 CSA options are available.
Option # 1 – Traditional CSA:
What is the traditional CSA? It is a pre-sorted box of produce that you pick up at our farm each week.
Are you willing to try new things? Our traditional CSA includes 7 – 10 different seasonal items each week. Members are encouraged to try new foods and new recipes!
Do you not want to think about what you are going to eat each week? The traditional boxes are presorted so you won’t need to think about what produce you want to get for the week. Members LOVE the surprise and meal planning with what is included.
Do you want to encourage your family to eat more healthy food? This CSA will do it! You will get a box of food each week and members enjoy the challenge of using it all up before picking up the next box. You will get creative with fruits and veggies for your main meals, but also snacks.
Option # 2 – Farm Stand CSA:
What is the farmstand CSA? Members choose their share from everything we have available! Stop by any of our market locations (Kalamazoo, Muskegon & farm store) and shop with your pre-paid card. Members will receive 7% of their share price added to their farmstand card. So, if you purchase a $400 share you will receive $428 to spend!
Do you need flexibility for when you pick up your share? If you have a busy schedule our farmstand CSA is for you. You have the flexibility to come to any of our market locations when ever works for you. Members enjoy stopping by and using their grocery list to pick out what they need.
Do you want to be able to pick out food everyone in your family likes? Members can choose their share from everything we have available! That includes a wide variety of produce, meat, eggs and more. This share is for the members that have picky eaters in the house.
Do you often shop at our market locations? This CSA is a great way to save money and is super convenient! Members receive 7% of their share price added on to their farmstand credit. Pick out what ever you would like and check out using your farmstand card.
