What's a CSA you ask?

Simply put, it's an easy way for you to enjoy

locally grown, fresh produce all season long. 

First,

Pay for some of your season in advance, this way the farmer has capital at the beginning of the season when it's needed...you know, to buy seeds and such. 

Our Farm is Your Farm!

Members receive the freshest possible foods directly from our farm just outside of Libby. 

You will have the unique opportunity to be familiar with exactly what went into the production of your food - who planted the seeds, how the crops were tended and weeded, who harvested it, how it was prepared and delivered to you. 

As a Member You:

Have access to high quality fresh vegetables, that we select for qualities like taste and texture!

Try new foods and learn how to cook with them. 

Develop relationships with your farmers.

Diversify your diet and eat the freshest food possible!

Community Supported Agriculture

In a CSA, you as the consumer are becoming part of the agricultural process. Members purchase their produce in advance, helping the farmer pay for up front costs. In return, you get access to some of the most nutritious and freshly harvested produce available.

As part of the process, you are willing to share in the risks and rewards that are inherent to farming. You may have a smaller share if an unpredicted weather event affects production; on the other hand, you’ll also benefit from a bumper year for tomatoes. CSA strengthens your relationship with the farmer and connects you to the process of growing food.

How does it work?

You pay up front for your season of shares. We do our best to grow a diverse crop mix and bring your weekly shares to a pick up location. We try to keep the contents diverse, so you will receive anywhere from 6 to 8 different items in each share. 

'Harvie' runs our CSA. Harvie is a software platform that helps CSA farmers meet their customers' needs through a customizable farm share program. 

 

How much does it cost?

How much a CSA membership costs depends on you and your preferences. A weekly share's cost is about $27.50, and can be picked up each week or every other week. Your weekly share cost can go up if you decide to purchase extras from the farm or add-ons from one of the farms partners. We offer flexible payment plans to suit your needs. 

How long does it last?

The season runs for 18-weeks starting mid-May and running through mid-September.

How do I join?

We first offer our CSA slots to our previous seasons' members. Any remaining slots will soon be available to sign up for the 2021 season. Our CSA is run by Harvie, an online platform for local farms to run a customizable, customer friendly farm share program.
