CSA: Community Supported Agriculture

Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program gives you access to the freshest local produce around. By purchasing a share you directly support the farm and its students throughout the growing season! Interested in learning more about CSA? Check out the Wikipedia CSA article.

​Our year-round CSA is broken down into three, 16 week sessions.

Summer Veggie Share

Full Share: $575
Half Share: $340
(pick-up for Half Shares is every other week)

Size: 8-12 items each week valued between $30-$50/week.

What to expect: Early on there will be lots of fresh greens and other springtime veggies (think: peas, salad, broccoli, garlic scapes, spinach, Swiss chard, etc.) followed by early summer fruits from our hoophouses (includes: cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, basil, green beans, etc.) and outdoor plantings of other exciting veggies (think: eggplant, tomatillos, summer squash, hot peppers, watermelon, dill, etc.)

We will be offering two pick-up locations during the summer:

On Farm:

This share is always abundant, including the Thanksgiving share, from which people can expect a haul worth nearly double its cost!

Size: 8-12 items each week valued between $30-$50/week.

What to expect: The end of our abundant summer fruit (think: tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, peppers, etc.), all of the vegetables associated with the end-of-year harvest season (includes: Brussels sprouts, winter squash, onions, cauliflower, leeks, potatoes, carrots, celery, etc.), and fresh greens and roots from our hoophouses once the cold sets in (includes: spinach, salad, Asian greens, head lettuce, radishes, etc.)

Winter Veggie Share

Cost: $575 for 16 weeks, which breaks down to $36 per week!
pro-rated shares available to those who sign up mid-season

Size: Each week you'll receive between 8-10 items in your share. This share offers fresh local winter produce, a rarity during cold Michigan winters! Our storage items and winter greens are our most valuable produce and make this session our most exclusive.

What to expect: Fresh greens and roots from our hoophouses (think: spinach, salad, kale, head lettuce, salad turnips, etc.) and storage crops (includes: winter squash, onions, garlic, carrots, cabbage, rutabaga, beets, parsnips, potatoes, etc.)

What else?

Each week, seasonal offerings are available for purchase at pick up including but not limited to eggs, flower bouquets, meat, honey, jam, berries, apples, and pears.

CSA members picking up on farm will have access to a U-pick garden at the farm. There you will find items that don't typically appear in the share as well as items that our members just can't get enough of.
