Our Farm Members pay a fee prior to the growing season, in exchange for Market Shares picked up June through October at either the Saturday Argyle or Blanchardville Farmers Markets. Once the growing season is under way, members pack themselves either large or small shares of the farm harvest at the market, every week or bi-weekly. Please click here to to see list of the veggies you can expect to choose for your share, and when you are likely to get them. We also pack strawberries, currants, mulberries, gooseberries and raspberries in season.
Our goal is to feed members mostly familiar veggies with something adventurous every week including, occasionally, flower bouquets. We also love edible flowers, when in season. It is our goal to have fresh herbs every week, as well as salad greens and cooking greens. Everything else changes with the season. 10 or 20 boxes total, for pick up every or every-other-week. For this year's brand-new market-style share, farm members will bring vouchers to the market and pick out their own veggies, at a discount. The vouchers will be dispensed in the form of a punchcard, which you can use any week and in whatever amount you choose - so if you have to miss a week here or there, you can be flexible in picking up shares. In addition, Members who have health insurance through Unity, Physicians Plus, Group Health and Dean can submit their CSA receipt and get up to $200 back!

We are skilled, experienced farmers and always plan to have more than enough produce for our member shares, but should weather or pests destroy some of the crops, under CSA principles, both the farmer and the consumer agree to share the inherent bounty and/or shortage associated with growing chemical-free vegetables. In other words, if our crop failed, you won’t get that crop. If a crop is abundant, you’ll be able to get extra bags to fill your fridge or even do some canning!
