Announcing our FALL CSA!!!
The Earthly Delights CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is the main way you can support the farm and get our healthy, amazingly tasty food into your belly. As a member, you pay us up front for a season of produce, and we in turn supply you with fresh seasonal vegetables, fruits, and herbs. This model is wonderful for both eaters and growers, allowing us to connect directly with each other to foster the relationships that create a healthy and truly sustainable local food system.
Now accepting members for our 2020 CSA!
That’s right, instead of a spring and summer CSA, this year we’re still offering a fall storage crop CSA. You pay up front, just like the tried-and-true CSA, but instead of getting veggies weekly in spring and summer, you get one pickup of larger quantities of long-keeping veggies at the end of the summer season.
“But, but, but….Waaaaaaaaah!!!!!!! Casey, why are you doing this to me?!?! Why can’t I get my veggies from you all stinking season just like normal?”
Well, intrepid CSA member, I’m glad you asked. Please visit this blog post for the in depth scoop on the personal & emotional landscape that led me to take a quick sabbatical for some schoolin’, and this one to get a current update on how that’s working out for me and for the farm. And once you’re on board and ready, please consider supporting the farm this year!
You’ll still be connected through your love of local food to this wacky crew of wonderful folks…you’ll just see their faces once in the fall for a pickup rather than every week…
I mean, just look at these fun-loving folks, begrudgingly posing with their monstrous bundles of freakishly huge chard a couple years ago…
You might even show up to this, as happened last season…RAWR!!!!
Now that you’re convinced it’s a grand time to become a member, here are your options!
Fall CSA – $325
**The Fall CSA share will include a selection of fall crops in larger quantities (i.e. 10 lbs of onions, 10 lbs of potatoes, etc) along with a farm-made zine that gives you the skinny on how to store them and why you’re a complete badass for doing so. No special equipment is needed to keep your veggies good for a few months–just a refrigerator drawer, a closet, and/or a pantry and you’ll be good to go!
The Happy Homesteader! – $400
Grow your own and save your hard-earned cash with our spring & summer Garden-in-a-Box and then get your Fall CSA share from Earthly Delights Farm. This is a great way to support the farm, up your gardening game, and eat locally and seasonally all year long! And you save $35 over the regular share prices!
** We can also deliver your share to home or office in our delivery area for an additional $10! However, picking up your share is the best option if you can swing it, because it gives you the opportunity to meet and mingle with your farmers and fellow CSA members. Please contact us for delivery availability.
