What is a CSA?

CSA stands for community supported agriculture. We as farmers are looking to form a good standing relationship with you the community. We would like to share with you the joy of eating local, and in season food. It is our goal to help you become more connected to this wonderful area and all the great food has to offer! By joining our CSA you are making a commitment to us that you are in it for the long haul that you will not only share in the Bounty of a Great Harvest but be understanding and help us Farmers through the many struggles we Face from year to year. This means that from time to time we have or less than perfect products we expect our members to understand that by joining CSA you are assuming some of the risk. We do our best to communicate with our members sharing with them all of the success and also our failures. Part of Part of the program is helping people to better understand our food system and what actually goes into growing things. 

A CSA is not buying in bulk and we are not a grocery store. Please consider the following two things. 

1. The season will always start out slower, it is the way nature is, it takes time to grow things.

2. When considering the value of our program please remember it takes lots of time for us to organize the program, pack the shares and deliver them. The value in a CSA is that you belong to something that helps you be connected to the people growing your food. 

What is the difference between a CSA and a Co-op?

The difference between our CSA and a co-op is significant. A co-op generally will Source its produce from all over. This may include producers from outside the USA as well. The coop is generally able to provide produce that is currently out of season in Wisconsin. 

Are CSA provides produce that is grown only on our own Farm here. That means that we are limited to the produce that grows here seasonally. We can't provide you with a melon or tomatoes out of their season. The produce that goes into the boxes as whatever is available for the Harvest in a given week. The boxes will change significantly from beginning to the end of the growing season as the weather changes.

What if I can't pick up my share?

If you know you cannot pick up your share, simply place your share on hold on your online dashboard when you log into your account, this is very easy to do. Simply highlight the day you would like your share on hold and choose hold delivery. On the calendar green highlighted days indicate you are scheduled for pickup and grey highlighted days means you are on hold. Please note we offer a pretty good discount for people who pay for the full 20 weeks up front, that being said, if you choose this option you will not be able to make up any missed shares. You can however have a relative or friend pick up your share, or donate your share, the last option can be done from your dashboard.
