What is a CSA?
A CSA, or community supported agriculture, is an alternative, locally-based economic model of agriculture and food distribution. A CSA refers to a network of individuals who have pledged to support one or more local farms, with growers and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA members pay at the onset of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they receive weekly shares of produce, in a vegetable box.
What will a typical share look like?
Each week you will receive a portion of whatever is in season and available. Every share will contain enough food to feed about 3-4 people. Keep in mind seasonality. This means there will be plenty of greens in the spring and much more variety by the end of summer. The crops we will be growing include: Arugula, Beans (dry and snap), Beets, Carrots, Chard, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Garlic, Herbs, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Melons, Mizuna, Mustard Greens, Okra, Onions, Parsnips, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Radishes, Rutabaga, Spinach, Squash (summer and winter), Sun chokes, Tomatillos, Tomatoes, and Turnips. All produce is grown organically on the farm. We will also have fresh eggs available for purchase each week.
Where/when do I pick up my box?
Pick up days will be Tuesdays from 5-7pm at the farmstead (11600 W. 58th Ave Arvada). If this date and time does not work for you, other arrangements can be made by emailing Emily at email@example.com
Can I split my share with a friend?
If you decide to, you may split up your share on your own accord. This may involve dividing each crop after you have picked up from the farm or alternating who picks up each week. Unfortunately, we are unable to divide your share for you before pickup.
What happens if I can’t pick up my share?
If you are out of town or know you can’t pick up your share, please let us know by calling or emailing us with a 24 hour notice. This way we know how much to harvest each week. You may also have a friend come pick up your share for you. Any shares that are not picked up will be donated to the Arvada Food Bank.
What if I don’t like or don’t know how to use certain items?
Not to worry! In addition to your box of goods, you will receive fun and healthy recipes on how to use your produce! Sometimes it’s just a matter of how you prepare a particular food. For example, I know many people who thought they despised turnips until they tried my recipe for Cajun Turnip Fries! I recommend at least giving everything a chance. If you decide that you just will not use something, you may leave it at the farm for someone else.
Can I come visit or volunteer at the farmstead?
Visits are certainly welcome but must be scheduled beforehand. You may email Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a farm visit. There will also be opportunities to get your hands dirty throughout the season.
